Comfortable rooms, balcony, breakfast room and terrace upstairs with view on the sea and towards the greek ruins of Selinunte. Helpful reception attendants and nice table service with especially good antipasti.

When booking this trip, it was a toss up between the Alceste and the Admeto. Because I would be in the Archeological Park and the Nature Reserve all of the 2 days I would be in Selinunte, I decided on the cheaper optio - The Alceste. I was not dissapointed. I had a lovely room on the second floor with... More

We recently visited Selinunte and spent a night at Hotel Alceste. We were very few visitors, so we had a room s with a balcony towards the sea. Lovely. The best part of the stay was the breakfast, at the neighbouring hotel, top floor, lovely food and a magnificent view towards the sea. Enjøy

On the good side, great breakfast, NO wifi in the rooms only at the reception, shower door broken, not cheap, needs a renovation. I would not recommend for that price 65 Euro. The parking is not suffi ient for all the rooms, so you need to be lucky

This hotel was only for a few nights and we weren't there much as we had family in the area and were with them from morning until late at night. Upon arrival a woman at the front desk barely said hello when we checked in. She mentioned nothing about the breakfast included or where it was. We were delighted to... More

We booked this hotel with some misgiving in the light of some reviews on your website but I think any adverse judgment of this hotel is unfounded. The hotel was clean and, for its class, well-apponted with good quality decoration and fittings. The retaurant is pleasant and the food good. There is adequate free parking opposite the hotel and more... More

This hotel offers dirty rooms (hairs on the bathroom floor) for the expansive price of 80 € for a double room. It's shabby and non-refurbished since a lot of years (30 ?) With the new constructions you can't see the sea anymore. A lot of rooms have a wall-view ! The breakfast is poor and the staff is unpolite and... More

I selected this primarily for the price and can't really complain too much as it just about delivers a reasonable experience for the price. [I paid €55 for a double room]. Their own descriptions of "recently constructed" and "modern amenities" are somewhat far fetched in my opinion. The room was fine - tidy, clean but only furnished with a minimum... More

Struggled to find a hotel in Selinunte (none on here) so ended up with this. It is a little way back from the sea (lots of steps) and the restaurants/bars on the beach front but convenient for the archeological park. Front desk seemed a little haphazard and you had to ask for everything (safe key, TV remote, aircon remote...). Room... More
