A few days in the hilltop town of Castelmola- and a few nights at Hotel Villa Sonia. Parts of the hotel are very modern, and parts seem frozen in time. Amazing location, amazing views and prompt service. Breakfast was ok- but I heard that the restaurant really shines at night.

Hi, Shirley. What would you like to know about this accommodation? I would like to know if the Superior Rooms have a table and chairs to sit at on their balconies or not please and also if anyone asked for a kettle in their room as its important to us to be able to make a cuppa first thing in the morning. Thank you!
Dear Shirley, Yes, all our superior rooms have table and chairs on their balconies. Yes, if you ask for it we could supply a kettle in the room and of course, if you would like a nice sicilian espresso you could also ask for room services. Looking forward to meet you here in our Hotel! Best, Hotel Villa Sonia
