Stayed for 2 nights in September. Hotel is very centrally located in old part of Cefalu. Very happy with our room on the 2nd floor - room was relatively small and bathroom was a bit tight for space but has most things you need. Our room overlooked the street and had a small juliet balcony - didn't notice much street noise - Via Veterani didn't seem to carry a lot of traffic, at least when we were there. Hotel has a roof top terrace which was a great place to have a drink watching the sun go down. Breakfast was good although the coffee machine which supplies all was a bit on the slow side. Staff were helpful - got good recommendation for restaurants nearby.

This hotel was nicely located, clean, and quiet. The reason I am writing a review is the consideration of the person at the desk the day we checked in. He noticed that it was my husband’s birthday when he looked at our passports. He did not mention the fact that it was my husband‘s birthday but when we returned from exploring there was a nice bottle of red wine and glasses in our room with a card from the hotel. I found this gesture very touching and really appreciated it. It was fun to bring the bottle of wine to the restaurant to enjoy wiith friends who are traveling with us

We decided to stay here because of vicinity to city center and parking place. When we reached the reception, it turned out there is no parking for us there and we had to park on the city parking 15 mins walking distance.
Beside this inconvenience, we had a good stay, the city center is very close, 5 min distance, the staff were good.
There was no view from the room outside, no balcony. The breakfast choices were nice though. There was a restaurant near and what woke me up was a cook hammering meat. My rate is based on the price we payed for this.

Room tip: Ask for a room that is not near restaurant and preferably with a good view on the balcony.

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!!!!
