“Lovely hosts and beautiful place”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

We wished we had more time to stay here. We arrived late and the owner came to our car to help us carry our bags to the hotel. He carried both (heavy) bags up the 2 flights of stairs and we had a beautiful room. They rooms are quiet and very comfortable, clean, and looked like newly remodeled. They provided many warm, fres, wonderful pastries for breakfast!

You don't expect too much from a B&B: a friendly welcome, cleanliness, comfy bed, good breakfast. The woman welcomed us as if we came to her funeral. Clearly this B&B thing was his idea. The man tries at least to be cheerful. They manage to keep the place clean in spite of the amount of knickknack and this is the only remarkable thing. The mattresses have seen better times, you can feel each and every coil. Breakfast is alright, served on lovely local ceramic ware, lots of cookies and pastries but quite ordinary. Our room was spacious and well decorated, even well kept (not counting the mattresses). They've squeezed a bathroom in it but at a price. The shower is so small you can hardly turn around. It could be much better with a little more attention. It's well located, parking is not too far away. Wake up and smile then, it costs you nothing!

I liked Pilozza Infiorata. It's not eerie at all, but in a beautifully renovated building and in an ideal location. The woman who runs it is harried because she's got two little girls but she was nice and helpful to my friend and me during our two-night stay. The room where breakfast is served is lovely and there's a terrace when the weather is good. For the price and location, I say it's an above average experience. Also, B&Bs in Italy are not the same as B&Bs in the US: they are typically not luxurious and they don't provide lots of services. It really is more like staying with a family who is renting out rooms, often to make ends meet.

Well-located - only a few minutes by foot from La Scala - the La Pilozza Infiorata B&B is beautifully furnished and run by a very gracious and helpful couple. The common room was cozy and welcoming, and breakfast (which was served there) included a wonderful array of tasty foods served on lovely ceramic ware. There was also a small roof-top terrace holding a delightful cactus garden. My room was a comfortable, bright, airy double with some nice ceramic touches. Agnes speaks fluent English, and both she and her husband were helpful and gracious. The B&B's desk is up a rather steep set of stairs from the street level, and the guest rooms are at least one flight of stairs above that, so keep that in mind if mobility is an issue.

We decided to stay in Caltagirone for the final night of our 10 days in Sicily. Caltagirone itself is really lovely - the hotel, however is not.

The location is fantastic - 5 mins from the famour steps, but the hotel itself reminded me of an old covent - really smelly and very eerie. We had a terrible welcome - the woman who owns it speaks excellent English, but she was obviously very depressed.

I can only say how lucky we were to stay for a night!
