The hotel is very well located, just a couple of blocks from the Cathedral. Its staff is nice and cooperative, the premises are clean and breakfast is decent. However, the rooms are dour, may need an overhaul and don't have a view. Plus, the nearest parking lot is one kilometre away. Were it as inexpensive as most Italian hotels in this category, one could dispense of such amenities, but at 70 euro the night for a single it could well be the most expensive two-star hotel I've ever booked.

We have to make some clarifications: our single rooms have not this price; this is the price for a double room.
The hotel has 3 stars and not 2. It is situated in the historical centre and it is normal that some rooms have not an open view...we have a panoramic terrace that has a wonderful view!!
In every town it is not possible to park the car in the historical centre...we have a garage, a little garage that has a cost. Usually people goes to park in some place where it is possible to leave the car. Hotel La Giara is situated in the heart of the historical centre of Cefalù and when people reserve a room knows that will found merits and defects of the centre.

Although the hotel itself is charming in a little street of Cefalu and definitely great value for your money. Bed was uncomfortable, shower unpractical and roof top a bit run down. Not sure I would stay here again.

We are not sure that you stayed in our hotel... in december it is closed...But if you really stay in our hotel (in other period!!!) we are sorry for the bed...it is just a fireproof mattress....we are sorry for the shower....we have some comfortable massage showers and some standard shower! And then the terrace....in summer you can find tables, sun beds, umbrellas, ecc. when summer finishes....no
We hope you will stay in our hotel...for the first time!!!!

We stayed at La Giara 3 years ago when we were on a Rick Steve Sicily tour. When we came back to Sicily on our own we did not want to miss Cefalu or La Giara. The location near the Duomo is great. The rooms are small but very clean and tastefully appointed. The staff is gracious. There is also a rooftop terrazzo with wonderful views of La Rocca, the Duomo and the sea. Che bello posto.

Room tip: Top floors better

I had a quadruple for myself only, just one electric plug in the whole room+bathroom. TV set from the last millennium with decoder and two different remote controls. Clean and confortable for all the rest.

Room tip: A few steps from the cathedral and from the harbour beach

We stayed at Hotel Ristorante La Giara for 9 nights during our recent trip to Cefalu. It's situated right in the heart of the Old Town in the narrow one way streets.

On arrival the receptionist didn't say much except demand our passports and tell us the room number. He then took a tourist map and highlighted where the hotel was and how to get to the two beaches. We were then shown to our room via the compact lift.

Ten minutes after settling into our room we got a knock on the door and were told that they'd given us the wrong room. So we had to repack and move to an 'upgraded' room. Our second room was a bit bigger, had a patio and was at the rear of the hotel so perhaps it was better.

The roof terrace was really nice with views of the sea, Cathedral and coastline. From here we watched the recent fires which affected Cefalu.

Some of the staff were friendly while others not so. The room was cleaned daily although we're not sure how often, if at all, the sheets and towels were changed.

At present there's no restaurant but given the great places to dine in close proximity it's not a problem.

Obviously it's not the nicest hotel but given the price of our stay it was good value and we'd recommend those on a budget to stay here.
