“Stayed for a Week”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

Spouse had a meeting here and I came along to explore. The hotel is very nice, I recommend. The rooms are clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly and the food is good. You will definitely know you're staying at a former convent through the style of the architecture and art sprinkled throughout the building. Breakfast is served buffet style, with lots of options from cheese and meats and bread to pastry, fruit and cereal. Dinner is a fixed menu. Rooms facing the courtyard are bound to be more quiet than our road room was, as I'm quite sure Italians have a secret code language they've devised using their horns. One plus to an outside room on the north-west side is a great view of Mt. Etna, which has been rather active these past few weeks. The beds and pillows are nice and the bathroom is fine but with tub bathing, no shower, at least in our room. The front road is very busy. However, the hotel is a short walk from the central church/promenade area, so it is convenient. Oh, and the wifi is decent, which is pretty important these days.

This is a converted convent with the rooms being the 'cells' as used by the monks. They are minimalist but lovely with an en suite with hairdryer and good shower. Our room overlooked the cloisters and in the evening you could here them singing in the church adjoining through the open door. Breakfast was nice with cakes and pastries (never had treacle tart for breakfast before!) and the evening meal was very good. Not far to walk down into the town where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. Not easy to find even with instructions, however there are signs to Piazza San Biagio and the resort is behind that. There are plans for a rooftop garden and pool which will make it even livelier. Would definitely stay again.

Nice design, beautiful renovation, spacious rooms, beautiful place
Service is limited, yet very friendly

The restaurant room is superb

Highly recommended as a starting point for etna if you have a car

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the street, ask for room on the cloister to avoid street noise in the morning
