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.
