This is one of the best guesthouses we have ever stayed at. It is hip and modern, yet plush and luxurious in design, perfectly clean, spotless and environmentally friendly. All aspects of construction are to a very high standard, the bathroom had funky design elements and supplied with top brand (Hermes) products. This place offers a safe, quiet and comfortable sanctuary in contrast to the hustle and bustle of its central location. Everything is walkable to great cafes and restaurants, the fish and produce market, all tourist attractions, and Via Etnea (shopping).
Best of all, Luca, (the owner) was over the top with his hospitality and service. He made contact prior to arrival to assure that he welcomed us; and we made a great connection and gained mutual trust instantly. His recommendations were his personal favorites and where he takes his family, including the freshest seafood and pizza restaurants. As we are avid cooks, he went out of his way to pick up olive oil straight from the producer for us. And speaking of great food, he also owns a restaurant across the street (Ui Sicilian Food Experience) which represents an extension of his heart and personality. Ui offers Sicilian cuisine with a modern and elegant twist, it is a must try. It was also at Ui that we met Luca’s lovely wife, children and relatives who were as warm and welcoming. It will be hard to top this experience anywhere else!
More power to you, your family, hotel and restaurant, Mayor Luca!
