Sicily hotels and B&Bs
Sicily has a good choice of hotels and B&Bs nowadays, from luxury resort hotels to stylish new bed and breakfast accommodation. If you shop around, you can usually find some very good-value places to stay. Throughout the Sicily destination pages on Italy Heaven, I've provided recommendations and lists of good hotels and B&Bs. I would always recommend reading the guest reviews provided on the hotel booking pages, checking the most recent ones for an up-to-date report. Hotels in Sicily vary from the luxury honeymoon hotels of Taormina to business-like city hotels in Palermo. Occasionally you may come across large, oddly empty hotels which appear to have had a mysteriously large amount of money spent on them ... it's probably best not ask any further. As elsewhere in Europe, the advent of online reviews has really forced Sicilian hotels to raise their standards. Some are still a bit faceless and nonchalantly run, but a friendly approach to the staff generally pays off.
Sicilian B&Bs can be really wonderful: welcoming, comfortable, well-run by friendly hosts and often better than hotels. They will frequently be in good historic-centre locations, or perhaps right out in the peaceful countryside. Often you will find freshly-squeezed orange juice and moist home-made cakes on the breakfast table. However, as well as those with a flair for hospitality, obviously some less-reputable hosts also set up B&Bs. I'd recommend booking only B&Bs which have a significant number of good reviews.
Below is a selection of Sicily hotels and B&Bs which I have visited, reviewed and can recommend.
