- new hotel, excellent views up to the Lipari Islands, very quiet, good parking - very poor breakfast
Lovely surrounding area in mountains, superb views, lovely design and specifications of the hotel Food disappointing for a hotel of this quality.
we had difficulties finding the hotel
We had a great time at Hotel Federico II, everything was above our expectations, it deserves its 4 stars and even more, we recommend this hotel for a relaxing and nice vacation, the surroundings are great and the quiet is absolute, nothing negative to say about!
sea view, orange and lemon trees in the garden, little comfort in the rooms, heating sistem not working during the night and disapointing breakfast (but still not the worst we had)
It's a great location, very nice owner and staff, the best food, nice rooms
The Sicilian Dinner evening was very enjoyable and extremely good value. Signs are not easily visible in the dark.
Location, furnishings and service None
The panoramic views, the quietness of the place and the readiness of the staff to help. The cleaning of the rooms on alternate days
kinndness and location
location room equipment an furniture
The landscape is beautiful, nice sea view very cold rooms ...heating system was working...15min a day. Room was dirty and things inside not in a goog shape.
Plus: nice view, the dinner experience (no questions asked: 9 antipasti served + primo + secondo + dolce + limocello + wine + water, great value!). Minus: no air conditioning in hotel room, lots of mosquitoes...
lots of place pitty swimming pool was not well maintained
This family run hotel was extremely comfortable, there weren't many guests but the staff paid us every attention and we were able to relax. I would reccommend the hotel to others and would like to return in warmer weather. There were a few small points that could be improved in the room eg. provide hairdryer, kettle and larger mirror.
the fantastic helpful friendly staff at the hotel. the cleanliness and luxury of the bedrooms and of all the main rooms of the hotel. the beauty of the hotel the lovely golf club h ouse in an old villa and the amazing countryside and views of Etna. All in all amazing value for money. there could be more information on the surrounding villages what to visit and where else one could eat. Even th ough the staff couldn't be more helpful to answer any questions it would be nice to have this iinformation to hand.
During our stay we had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was very very good. Golf was lovely, rooms were clean and comfortable.Restaurant staff was nice. Very difficult to find hotel. It was never stated that outdoor swimming pool was closed from the 15th of September. Indoor swimming pool was available only at a cost €24 per person for 3 hours. Breakfast only fair. Car essential.
We liked the inside and outside pools very much and the gym. Very few guests at the hotel so we had much space. We had dinner the first evening and the food was not good, not at all. They had no computer the hotel guests could use.
Everything, just perfect! What else can be said? Just perfect! No
The rooms are elegant and the staff is polite, breakfast was fair It's not easy to find the hotel at night,we didn't like the ambient of the restaurant.
Rooms, food, golf Court and Spa You have to pay for the SPA
beautiful surrounding near mount Etna, very helpful host
I really enjoyed staying there. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a true filling of the countryside. I would write more but I am using an I Pod. No
Very friendly personnel. Nice situated in the agricultural area. Excellent dinner. Very very poor breakfast.
We loved this place. A wonderful quiet location with Etna smoking in the distance and vineyards all around. Ask to see the animals: deer, wild boar, and the rare San Fratellino horses. All the food was local and the wine is from the owner's vineyard. Superb quality meals at value prices served in a converted church. Highly recommended.
It was a fantastic spot. Each room was unique in a beautiful setting. The food was incredible, we counted over 20 separate dishes for our evening meal, and each one was delicious.
Nice/relaxed place to stay near the Etna. Friendly staff.
the facilities were wonderful, but more importantly our host was just great, very freindly and welcoming. The dinner we had at the Borgo San Nicolao was one of the best of our whole vacation in Italy.
Great place to stay, the food was excellent. For infomation only: It is 500 meters from the main road down a farm track. (Which was "interesting" on a full laden motorbike)
the rural tmosphere the setting on the slopes of Mt Etna and the food/hospitality little english spoken but with my limited Italian and sign language we did fine
When you like good food, nature, animals, frech fruit from the trees and you need silence, this is the place! Perfect place to stay with children.
very nice and comfortable room, the staff at the pool bar was great (especially Beata).If you want to disconnect from reality, than you definitely choose this hotel without a car, you are dead..Very "up"on the hill, but verz nice view
Everything new,amazing panorama,free internet,nice swimming pool(i did not enjoy it because of the weather),good value for money
i liked everyyhing only brekfast was poor ,becouse was out of season only us and other two rooms was ocupied, anyway nice hotel and view,staff exelent
Very nice design, comfortable beds, great sea views! Food pricey.
Brand new hotel opened just 29 May 2009.Perfect quaity linen and comfortable king size bed makes sleeping very convinient.Room size OK,but not 30-35 sq.M. As it was stated at Booking.com . all rooms are sea wiew as the hotel located on the top of the mountain. No reason to pay extra for "sea view".Safe box and wire Internet are free of charge. No minibar in the room. Some buildings are still under construction.Breakfast is poor . Coffee and tea are very low quality.The restaurant staff not speaking English at all...No spoon available at breakfast time and I was forced to eat corm flakes by tea spoon.The location not convinient as the hotel not at the beach , but at the top of mountain , so hired car is more than requested .The shuttle bus (8 persons capacityonly ) running not regular and not enough for such size of the hotel.No bed linen was changed within 7 days of staying what is more than strange for 4 stars hotel.
Very frendly staff. Good breakfast. Very nice view. I have not negative thinks about this hotel. Notes:It is new hotel without adress and if you have plan to come to this hotel by car then you need additional map (the map indicated in booking.com is wrong)
Very little, the hotel is incomplete and the website deceptive. One receptionist was helpful, in variance with the other staff, but that about sums up the positive aspects. The hotel is shabby, incomplete and surrounded by other unfinished sites. On arrival only one of the 3 advertised restaurants were open and full board was a fixed menu of extremely poor standard. When a vegetarian option was sought for my fiancee, a plate of cheese (no biscuit obviously) was offered. Asked if the chef could do better, we were informed that there was no chef - the main food that was being served to the remainder of the customers was therefore being warmed up by waiters.
The staff at the hotel were really very friendly and extremely helpful We were not expecting the restaurant to be closed for the majority of our stay. Having said that there was no lack of restaurants nearby.
Excellent rest! Very nice place! Comfortable and calm, modern design and very friendly staff! All was excellent.
Great for an outdoors location, it feels like youre in the mountains although only a few km from center of small town. Liked it. Nothing
The owners were very friendly, the location was fantastic as were the facilities. Nothing to complain!
Very helpful owners, beautiful setting in a very quite valley, good food at the restaurant and exceptionally clean. At the price, this place is very hard to fault.
Unfortunately, a room in the main house was not available, so we had one in the adjoining building. I did not particulary care for the room, and was kept up by all sorts of noises in the roof. Breakfast was just ok. The location was good, and not too far from going to Mt Etna.
Nice stuff Very far from main roads , in evening veryu dangourous to drive ( naroww road 20kmh max) . TV in our room not work , very noisy .
The friendliness of the staff. They tried to accommodate all our needs, and where very good and friendly. And when the temperatures decreased, the heating was put on. Breakfast time was an excellent experience with the B&B owner and Dinner was excellent too, with a home cooked meals (pasta included every night) and a lot of food for a small person - excellent value for money. The walls are a bit thin :). Athough the room was pretty clean, we believe that room towel and sheet change could have been done more often :).
Very helpfull staf , this little bed and breakfast is very clean and comfortable very cloose to entna where is it possible found more alternativ and adventures escursion.The breakfast buffet is very good with warm quality croissant and more. Thank you for the nice stay .. ok
An excellent welcome from a very friendly host - Valentino. We will have a good memory of our visit.
Staff were execllent,very helpful. Town is very old world,which you don't come across too often. Alot of history there. The rooms were cold,walls thin so you hear everything.
The B & B is situated in a very quite village. The staff at the B & B was very helpful and the owner is a very nice person. Will definitley book again for a visit to Sicily.
the rooms had a very rustic feel and were very comfortable, the warm reception from the staff who made it feel like home and we enjoyed staying in the the village
Staff is very helpful. Breakfast in good, you can choose what you like. They prepare very good coffee for breakfast.
Very helpful staff.
The hotel was good however very remote in the middle of small village.We have decided to leave after the second night. The staff and all the information was in italian staff hardly spoke any english,the spa is nothing special and very difficult to use (a lot of poxy rooms spread all over 3 floors).
Nice big outdoor swimmingpool. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. It was difficult to find the hotel by night and it was not possible to drive to the hotel by car. No parking. We stayed only one night and we hardly saw anybody in this big hotel.
