One of such legends is the Palazzo Conte Federico in Palermo. Hotel apartments are located in the rooms of the old palace, which was built in the 12th century. The hotel is executed with preservation of the original architecture and interior of the palace, and the level of comfort is very high. The hotel has a restaurant with a summer garden, two bars, several conference rooms and a parking zone for cars.

Atahotel Capotaormina is located on a rocky cliff of volcano Etna and disposes a chic view of the bay and the picturesque island of Isola Bella. The interior is rather simple:each room has a balcony and is equipped with all the necessary facilities. For romantic travelers preferring hotels in Sicily for individual rest or relaxation together, a candlelight dinner in one of the three restaurants on the hotel terraces is waiting every evening. On the private beach of the Capotaormina hotel, you can go down the elevator through a mine cut out in the rock. If the budget allows, surely note this option.
Hotel Novecento is the most "museum" hotel, which is located in Scicli. Ceiling baroque bas-reliefs and lamps in the classical style, frescoes, replaced by walls with rough stonework, sculptures and paintings are not a museum, but the hotel. It is a boutique hotel Novecento in the center of Sicily, not far from Ragusa, which is located in a recently renovated building of the late 19th-early 20th century. In the elegant interior of the rooms, both modern design elements and objects of the unpretentious Sicilian life are successfully blended.
The inhabitants of the island are famous for their frugality and fidelity to traditions. Here a number of old railway stations, once serving a narrow gauge railway, are converted into hotels. One of them is Antica Stazione Hotel, located in the highlands of Ragusa Province (860 m above the sea level), near the center of the town of Chiaramonte Gulfi. Its difference from the hotels of the same kind is that the building is not just in a mountainous area, but in the middle of a well-groomed pine park. In other words, fresh air and fresh impressions are guaranteed to the guests of this hotel. Want to live in the hotel-station? Come here and fulfill your dream.
