    Historical Traveler Reviews Terrazze di Montelusa Bed and Breakfast Agrigento

    Absolut zum weiterempfehlen!!!!!!!

    from

    Haben anhand von den guten Kritiken dieses B&B gewählt und kurzfristig bei Francesco gebucht (am selben Tag angerufen). Können wirklich nur bestätigen, was vorangehende geschrieben haben. Würden sofort und jederzeit wieder dort übernachten. Für 80Euro haben wir die Junior Suite (Zimmer 301) bekommen und es war einfach genial. Sehr schön eingerichtet und gross, sehr sauber mit allem was es braucht (eigenes Bad, Fernseher, Telefon, Minibar). Die Betten waren sehr bequem! Das Frühstück für Italienisch Verhältnisse sehr gut! Francesco, der Besitzer, einfach super nett und hilfsbereit. Schade wir waren leider nur 1 Nacht dort. Hatten aber das Glück, dass das schöne Wetter es erlaubte auf der Terrasse zu Frühstücken! Alles in allem einfach super und wir können es nur weiter empfehlen.

    A "must stay" place in Agrigento

    from

    TERRAZZE DI MONTELUSA added something special to our trip around Sicily. The situation, the charm and decoration make this B&B a "must stay" place in Agrigento. It is usually said that the places you stay reflect the image of the host. In this case, one can say that TERRAZZE DI MONTELUSA is the image and hart of Francesco. A great host!

    Francesco was a gem of a host. He met us at the museum so that we could follow him to the B & B. He is very helpful and aims to please. The rooftop is lovely, unfortunately it was too windy the day that we were there. Without a map it could be difficult to locate but once there it is a charming area.

    Fantastic B & B!

    from

    Just to confirm what everyone else has said really - brilliant place to stay. We actually had a suite for 80 euros with a huge bedroom with twin beds, a separate lounge and small outside terrace.

    Very useful information on where to eat and go - ice creams at the recommended parlour were a definite highlight!

    Location is at the top end of the main street in Agrigento so near to plenty of restaurants and shops. You can catch the bus to the valley of the temples after about a 5 or 10 minute walk.

    Loved Montelusa

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nights after reading other favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. I did not expect the attention to detail my wife and I experienced, beginning the moment we were greeted by the proprietor, Francesco, a charming man.

    Situated on the 2nd floor of a building that has been in his family for generations, recent restoration means EVERYTHING is brand new. Everywhere you look it is obvious Francesco has worked hard, and continues to do so, insuring everything is perfect for guests at his bed+breakfast. Rooms are spacious and exquisitely appointed. Great mattresses for a sound nights sleep. Beautiful terrace for breakfast, with a view over the Valley of Temples, and on to the sea.

    Francesco spent 15 minutes showing me a map of Agrigento detailing places to eat, and sights to see. During this time if we encountered a language comprehension barrier, we both would dive into our dictionaries to seek the words we needed to be understood (a surprising contrast to the person we've all encountered who nod their heads, repeating "yes, yes" when actually not understanding what you are trying to say).

    The high level of customer service experienced here is un-common in any city, I could go on, but more favorable reviews of Terrazze di Montelusa follow mine.

    As with any property on trip advisor, contact the hotel directly for a reservation. I stayed in 6 hotels during my trip to Italy. Trying to make reservations using trip advisor partners, not once were my dates at my chosen hotels available; I would then be offered another hotel instead. My direct contact with these 6 hotels yielded me a reservation.

    Stay here...

    from

    Not normally given over to writing reviews online, I promised the owner Francesco that I would share my appreciation of his delightful B&B with others. Having travelled extensively in Europe on a budget I know the difficulties that can be encountered when trying to judge the quality of accomodation from photos online and from others reccommendations... so believe me when I say that this B&B is an excellent find.

    For 45 euros (70 if there is two of you) you get a room with a large double bed, and an excellent bathroom. Although the hotel looks unassuming from the outside (and in fact is situated above another hotel that occupies the first two floors of the building - Francesco can give you the full story as to this extraordinary arrangement) inside it is clean, smart and beautifully decorated in a simple Mediterreanean style. You also get breakfast on the rooftop terreace with amazing views of Agrigento, the temples and the sea. The hotel is run by Francesco, whose family has lived in the building for over a hundred years, and he is extremely knowledgeable about his own local history, and that of Agrigento itself. All in all I really wished I could have stayed longer than the one night I had allowed myself in Agrigento and I will definitely be returning if possible in the future.

    The most damning critism I have is that the water pressure in the shower is pretty weak if you try and have a shower after flushing the loo...

    To those of you unconvinced who may still be unconvinced please take a look at the photos I took (which show the publicity that can be found for thisf hotel contains photos taken extremely rcently and not simply ten years ago after the hotel had just been done up, as occurs frequently on other such hotel websites).

    Un gioiello

    from

    Questo è veramente un Bed & Breakfast speciale. È ristrutturato benissimo, le camere sono spaziose e confortevoli, e la zona colazione è collegata a un terrazzo con viste spettacolari della Valle dei Templi. Il nostro ospite, Francesco, è stato gentile e disponibile - è anche andato in gastronomia appositamente a prendere dei cereali speciali per la colazione di mio figlio! Tutto questo e una camera matrimoniale con colazione compresa è costato solo 70 euro a notte.

    Excellent Bed and Breakfast in Agrigento Old Town

    from

    We only spent one night here but wish we could have stayed longer. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and has wonderful terraces with views over the roofs of Agrigento to the temples. I would certainly recommend staying in the old town rather than Valley of the Temples itself, this will give you the opportunity to explore the town (in particular the wonderful St Maria dei Greci) and take part in the passagiata along Via Atenea in the early evening. Francesco is an excellent host and will give you good recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and possibly the best ice cream in Sicily!

    Highly recommended.

    A gem

    from

    This is a truly special B&B. It is beautifully renovated, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast area adjoins a rooftop deck with spectacular views over the Greek ruins in the Valley of the Temples. Our host Francesco was gracious and helpful -- he even went grocery shopping to get a special breakfast cereal for my child! All this, and a double room with breakfast cost only 70 euros a night.

    Terrazze di Montelusa B&B in Agrigento Sicily

    Feb. 15, 2007

    We stayed at this B&B in late October during a two week trip to Rome, Florence and Sicily.The Terrazze di Montelusa was by far the BEST accomodations we had.

    Everything was in the plus category, good location, easy to find, within walking distance to restaurants etc. The B&B was amazing.Francesco, the owner ,did a magnificent job in restoring the top floor of a three story building that belonged to his family. I am still showing pictures of the tile floor that he had made my artisans. The tiles were all hand painted. Each room was beautiful and the bathrooms were what one would expect in a 5 star European hotel. Just when you thought this place had it all you were invited up to the roof top terrace for a cool drink. Words cannot explain it. There you were high atop the city where you could see for miles. Breakfast was served on the terrace and you had a choice of eating in or outside.

    I could go on and on but I will let you go and see for yourself and you too can experience what we did.

The washroom is being guarded by 2 attendants clinking handfuls of coins. Even the fountain out front, our only hope left, is taped off, sporting a sign that shouts GUASTO and NON POTABILE.

Tonight’s was, and it was just like the northern versions. The problem with this pizza was the taste… the salami was quite tasty, but the sauce was watery and bland. I had to wash the taste out of my mouth with a Nutella Crepe. ...

We next passed a park that had an 800 year old fig tree and then finished up at the Teatro Massimo which has the claim to fame that the scene from godfather part three, were Michael Corlioni's son was shot on the steps of this building.
    A very interesting day, not the cleanest place, and how crazy are these Italian/Sicilian drivers.
