  • 4,0.Fair

    The standard was excellent except that the room I was given had a shower that did not function ie the water was tepid (this was at 8 a.m), at best....most guests would have deemed it 'cold'...and it was, but am trying to be generous! Also my shower hose was full of leaking holes so it was impossible to use shower properly...I gave up in the end and washed at the bathroom sink. I did report this the following morning but it is impossible to believe that this has not been reported before, it was so bad. Such a shame, as otherwise it was a nice room rather noisy at night possibly from the fridge, I was crawling around at gone midnight trying to work out where the loud humming was coming from...couldn't find a fridge plug or would have turned it off. In the end, I settled for using my ear plugs and diving under the bed clothes. The lack of a decent shower would make it a 'no return' place from my perspective.....this shower was so deficient that it must have been mentioned many times before yet they have done nothing about it.

    bel emplacement

    Hôtel très bien situé avec parking à disposition, ce qui n’est pas négligeable à Cefalù qui est vraiment très touristique en plein mois d’août. Pratique pour se rendre en ville à pied (10 mn max) et restauration à proximité. Bon petit déjeuner et chambre vue mer vraiment sympa.

    Boas e limpas acomodações. Local bonito mas um pouco isolado tanto do centro antigo como do badalado
