Room was a good size and well presented. But poor quality and intermittent internet and no fridge were annoying. Breakfast was well presented but a second coffee machine would have been good. Overall it was an ok stay.

Very tired and very basic and small rooms which were quite dark The lift was so old and noisy and the wooden doors to reception masked the exit so you never knew when to get off so often ended up in the basement The pictures were definitely not any of the rooms we stayed in – our rooms were damp, dingy, basic old furniture and in need of renovation The town of Piazza Amerina has very little for the tourist/traveller, and be warned its very hilly!! Wi-Fi only worked in the main reception and the breakfast room It was clean enough but looked unkempt rather than dirty, shower had no power to it and took a long while to get warm Quite noisy in the morning once traffic started – particularly motorbikes Staff were really polite and helpful Very cold concrete floors (bring slippers or flipflops) Breakfast was very basic, 2 juices, machin4 coffee, a few cakes and pastries, pots of sweetened yoghurts, minimal basic cheese ham Short drive to Villa Romana del Casale which was why our company select this hotel but really think better could be found in the area

Nel ringraziarla per aver espresso il suo giudizio al quanto personale, ci chiediamo in realtà se lei abbia mai alloggiato qui da noi. Il fatto che lei presenti la nostra struttura come avente delle camere che non rappresentano quello che è pubblicizzato in foto, sporche e umide, non la rende credibile proprio perchè sul nostro sito e non solo, c'è proprio la presentazione di 2 tipologie di camere(classic room e modern room) che sono proprio la riproduzione della realtà e tra l'altro non potrebbe essere diversamente visto che siamo su booking, expedia,daydreams ecc. e anche con voti non disprezzabili direi. Proprio dalle foto peraltro si vede che non abbiamo un pavimento in cemento ma col cotto o col gres porcellanato, che i mobili sono moderni e classici(in base alla tipologia di camera scelta) e sono stati acquistati o interamente ristrutturati appena nel 2019.Soprattutto non ci sono camere umide e sporche come da lei descritto e mai ce ne sono state. Invece se avesse guardato le foto della nostra struttura sicuramente si sarebbe accorta che trattasi di struttura in pieno centro storico e che quindi in base al proprio livello di sopportazione magari non avrebbe fatto al caso suo ritenendolo abbastanza rumoroso. Così come da un indagine più approfondita avrebbe potuto vedere che Piazza Armerina trovasi su di una collina e che per questo col suo sito UNESCO,col suo bel centro storico,col castello aragonese, il palazzo trigona e le sue 100 chiese non ha nulla da offrire al turista/viaggiatore. Le ricordo peraltro che quelle che lei definisce porte di legno, sono delle porte tagliafuoco che non solo sono obbligatorie da avere, ma che devono stare obbligatoriamente chiuse per non perdere la propria funzionalità in caso d'incendio. Magari per non andare nel seminterrato sarebbe bastato scendere al piano terra(piano da cui era salita in camera)come in tutti i locali e non al -1 . Per tutto il resto penso che sia stata più obbiettiva. Al di là del giudizio positivo sul personale e sulla colazione, l'ascensore è realmente vecchio ma funzionante ( e ne è già stata preventivata la sostituzione prima della pandemia), i problemi col wi-fi ci sono stati e sono stati attenzionati per essere risolti, tanto altro ancora dobbiamo fare e faremo sempre per migliorare. Ci dispiace che il suo soggiorno non sia stato piacevole, ma visto i presupposti la scelta di un paese diverso l'avrebbe evitato. Buona vita

I have looked at other reviews which are incredibly mixed. We were actually moved here after our original B and B overbooked so when we arrived didn't have a room for us, you can imagine, very stressful! Anyway, they had a connection with the Hotel Villa Romana and so we ended up there. Yes, it isn't the most aesthetically pleasing hotel, it's on the main road through the town, the lift is very clunky, and the room was totally bland. However, it was clean, well situated, we had no problems at all with anything, the breakfast was standard but perfectly fine, and most of all the staff were absolutely lovely. Someone else mentioned the issue of language, and yes, we do speak Italian so I don't know if there might be a difficulty with the staff not speaking other languages but one of them certainly did speak English, as I do sometimes have to check out my Italian vocabulary as I am by no means fluent! We had a very funny conversation about Italian hand gestures and what they mean. We found the staff really helpful. The place was really quiet, I think we only encountered 2 other guests and I couldn't really understand why. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the hotel. Maybe people now are just going more for B and Bs or apartments, or if you have a car, Agritourismo. I would stay here again, definitely, so want to give a good review to balance out some of the negative ones, everyone is obviously subjective in their reviews, we are all looking for different things. This isn't the most amazing place to staybut it provides a good base which is all you need when going around as a tourist. Plus, Piazza Armerina is very lovely, and the hotel is right on the edge of the centro storico.

Gentile cliente,grazie per la sua sincera recensione,ma soprattutto grazie per la sua importante riflessione.Anche noi nel tempo abbiamo notato le tante recensioni incredibilmente contrastanti e come lei siamo giunti alla conclusione che purtroppo sono frutto proprio della voglia delle persone di andare in giro per B&B e per appartamenti, o agriturismi,con l'errata convinzione che li magari paghi meno rispetto all'hotel o che i servizi che l'hotel può offrirti siano necessariamente più onerosi e fuori portata per i turisti o inadeguati e non accettabili.In realtà,poi come a voi,capita di essere dirottati in un hotel (il nostro) e magari di scoprire che essendo una struttura in pieno centro storico non brilla certo per estetica, ma ha una posizione invidiabile,che le stanze e gli spazi comuni possono stranamente essere puliti,che il personale può essere,come dite voi,adorabile,che la colazione può essere addirittura soddisfacente,che infine i prezzi possano essere uguali,ma anche inferiori ad alcuni B/B ma con maggiori servizi.Quindi che in questo hotel non ci sia nulla di sbagliato o per cui non valga la pena di soggiornarvi,se non il fatto di ospitare persone differenti fra loro che la pensano ognuno a modo proprio esprimendo dei giudizi soggettivi ciascuno in base ai propri gusti. Sia chiaro che i difetti ci sono stati,ci sono e ci saranno sempre,reali o frutto di soggezioni della clientela,ma è proprio con la gentilezza,la cortesia e l'essere adorabili come dice lei che,cerchiamo di superarli o di azzerarli completamente,per lasciare soddisfatti i nostri clienti. Grazie ancora se vuole torni a trovarci

My company booked me into this hotel for 4 nights. Having read the reviews I was not sure what I would find. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is excellent. OK, so the furniture in the rooms maybe rather worn and the shower lacked power but it was clean and comfortable with everything you need. The breakfast was very Italian but as much as you wanted, brought to your table. I would happily stay here in future.

I was en route to the nearby Roman mosaics, to see them on the following day, and when I could not find the hotel I was looking for, kept driving by this one. It was late, it was dark, it was raining, and I needed a hotel, esp. one I could find. I parked, I went in, I got a room. I was the only guest in the hotel (Oct. 13, 2012). If you want to find the most basic Motel 6 type of hotel in Sicily this may be it. No charm whatsoever and the breakfast was indeed terrible. The internet is not available in the room only in the reception area. The evening clerk spoke no English; the morning receptionist a little but at least he was very nice. I cannot recommend it, except that I was able to get to the mosaics down the road by 9 am - very important. I had the whole site to myself until about 10 am. By 11, the hordes of buses and people had descended. They charged me 50 euros off season for a single. I think it was very overpriced. And nothing I would ever recommend. Unless its raining and late at night and you happen to come upon it.

I'm happy to post a review, a very positive one, and I'm surprised that until now no one has suggested the Hotel Villa Romana as a place to stay while in Piazza Armerina. My wife, young daughter, and I stayed two weeks at the hotel, as part of a high school student exchange (the HS students, including my son, lived with Italian host families). Rooms are small by American standards, but well-furnished and comfortable. Our room had a satellite TV, with CNN and BBC, though we rarely turned it on. The en suite bathroom had a full shower. There was never any shortage of hot water. Best of all, rooms were cleaned daily, very thoroughly, with clean sheets on the bed and fresh towels in the bathroom. Breakfast was a simple affair, with food laid out on a table in the restaurant. It included juices, milk, rolls, cereal, and sometimes cheese and meat. You could call it a continental+ breakfast. Also, there was an automatic barista-style coffee/expresso/cappucinno maker, which you could operate yourself and make any kind of drink you wanted. We never ate dinner at the hotel, in part because it was frequently booked at nights for private events (a good sign, I think) and we wanted to try out nearby places. The dinners served, however, looked quite good. Regarding other restaurants, there are a dozen or so all within 1-10 minute walking distance. It's hard not to eat well in Sicily generally and Piazza Armerina in particular. There is a small bar in the hotel, just before the door to the restaurant. It was an ideal place to pick up a drink in the afternoon or evening. There is an elevator, good for hauling suitcases up to rooms and using it yourself when a little fatigued from walking up and down the streets of Piazza Armerina, which is a hilly town. The hotel is centrally located. The duomo is only about 10 minutes away, walking, up Via Roma. A variety of shopping is a little further, about 15 minutes away on foot, though there is also some just down the street, for example, an inexpensive clothing store. Some of the best bargains, by the way, are ceramics, which the area is famous for. What made our two weeks all the more enjoyable was the staff. The front desk staff was always friendly and helpful. They even cajoled our little daughter into speaking Italian, for example, asking for the room key in Italian rather than English. Cleaning staff, too, always had a cheerful word in the hallway. I recommend the hotel highly and definitely would stay there again.
