“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

On a previous visit in 2003 we visited Nicolosi and were expecting a trip to Mt Etna, but because of an overnight snowstorm we were not able to make the trip up the mountain. This time (End of September '13) we were able to make the trip up to Mt Etna and see this amazing attraction. Our
hotel accommodations were just perfect for this trip. Hotel Alle Pendici was easy to find and just a short drive to Mt Etna. The rooms were very comfortable and the morning breakfast was delicious. We had a 9 passenger van and was able to park directly across the street from the hotel. There was a pizza restaurant about a block away that was very good. Salvatore and his wife were the perfect host.

Room Tip: Great location. Friendly reception. Delicious breakfast. Close to Mt Etna.

I had 3 days booked here and was looking forward to my stay. We checked in late afternoon, room was very clean and in the front which I like. We had a shared bathroom but I knew this on booking so I wasn't too fussed. We went for a walk into town and decided to see if our friends were at home. Long story short they were and they immediately wanted us to stay at their home. We spent first night in Hotel Alle Pendici, slept beautifully on a great bed. Breakfast was simply gorgeous, the choice from the array of pastries, fruit, meats and dairy was great. I as able to check out with no problems as I explained the situation and I was more than happy to pay for the 3 days I booked however I was only billed for 2 nights. It turned out Matteo and my friend Giuseppe are old friends. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, it is central to Nicolosi, great rooms, great atmosphere, excellent parking facilities and very generous owners who take great pride in their home.

We've got a confirmation via Booking.com for this hotel but once we arrived we were explained in Italian that the room is not available and we can use an offer of an alternative place with shared bathroom and no air-conditioning instead! Having two small kids with us and barely speaking Italian we've faced a luxury of spending afternoon looking for a different hotel in the area!

stayed at the hotel alle pendici for 2 nights in March 2013 in order to see Mt Etna close up. Nicolosi is a pleasant small town, 15 minutes drive from the main S Etna carpark. The hotel is small, comfortable and well maintained; the rooms, though not large, are fine, the breakfast is good, if not great, and the management is efficient. Secure onsite parking is a plus. There are several restaurants within walking distance. A good choice if you want to see Etna close up.

We felt very welcome in this lovely hotel. Thank you Mateo for your kindness and advice. Hotel is a great place to stay if you are going to etna. We really appreciated the lovely breakfasts and wifi was helpful for planning our travels. Nice clean and big rooms too. We had some fantastic take away pizza from a local place and a nice meal in the town too. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks so much

My wife and I stayed here overnight and we had a wonderful time. I wish I was better with names so I could mention them here, but we where greeted by I assume the owner, a very friendly elder gentleman. He helped us very well and when we came down after dropping our bags off, offered us coffee and a chat. Excellent!

Room was what we expected, very nice, clean and had everything we needed.

Breakfast too was good. Fresh blood orange juice was also very nice.

Highly recommended.
