Just away from 'downtown' but easily walkable. Directly on a beach with fantastic views of the ocean and historic Cefalu. Beautiful pool. Adequate buffet breakfast and very reasonable dinning in the evening. Clean spacious rooms. This is an economical hotel but would certainly stay there again if we go back to Sicily. Hotel Tourist is a true find.

This is a popular hotel located in the western part of Cefalu, with a popular location next to the beach. In the daytime, choose to stay at the pool or at sea and in the evenings we suggest a walk of just under a kilometer to the Cefalu center. Located in the western outskirts of Cefalu. Next to Cefalu center...

I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends in September. We knew it was quite a walk from the old town however we didn't realise that the other bars and restaurants nearby had closed leaving this hotel very isolated. Our room was very dark, the room next door had been upgraded and had numerous spotlights. It may have...

Firstly the rooms.If you chose your room from the photo in the brochure it may not be the room you get.Some of the rooms are nothing like the picture,...

We went to Tourist Hotel in September and found everything really good. The food was plentiful and suited both veggie and meat eater. The pool was very deep but really nice to swim in or just as good to just have refreshing dunks in. The only drawback is the 10 Euros charge each way for a taxi whether just over...

My wife and I stayed here as part of a group travel to Cefalu. The hotel is located a good 10-15 minutes walk from the "old town" with not that many restaurants or bars close by. The hotel has a restaurant which we tried one night for their "Sicilian buffé". It was good and can be recommended if you want...

Spent a week here on B&B basis, room was large, airy and looked fairly recently decorated, bathroom was good and clean. Staff at reception provided a very warm welcome, bar staff were good and the breakfast lady very cheerful each time we visited.

It gets five stars due to the value for money for a great budget hotel. This hotel was £200 cheaper than our other option. The food is excellent.

We stayed for three nights and it was more than enough. We've stayed in Cefalu on many occasions but it was our first time staying in this particular area. I much prefer the marina area. The rooms are very very basic but clean. The pool area is nice but our swimming clothes turned yellow because of the chlorine in the...
