Improvement of bed’ s quality
All staff super friendly and upgraded us to sea view room. Located at the quiet end of the Lungomare with nice beach. Large pool perfect for swimming, very deep and not suitable for children., lots of loungers and umbrellas. Spacious room and bathroom with large bath. Clean.
Cappucino at breakfast from a machine and was awful. Breakfast the same everyday (tinned puneapple rings) and not great quality. Some maintenance issues in our room.
Fantastic location for those who like to walk a little. 10-15 min walk from the train station. It also Gives you a good reason to walk off those lovely pizzas in town. You also have access to a pool (we didn’t use) and the beach across the street with loungers/umbrellas. It is quite rocky but we didn’t mind. It’s always very clean in all areas of the hotel. The staff were accommodating with a few requests. However night staff didn’t speak English. Breakfast was “good continental” always: sunny side up eggs, bacon, sausages, breads, cereal/musili, fruits, sweets, milk juices coffee/cappuccino machines. The double room was very good size. Bathroom is big but small shower. There is a lack of shelving or benches in the bathroom or hallway. I personally would up-grade to larger lamps, larger paintings in rooms and a couple of benches. One in the bathroom, one in the hallway. Plus a full body mirror. It would level up the hotel to a 4 star.
Warning: there is a major dance club (active on Saturdays) with white fence right next to the hotel. We didn’t sleep until after 3am. We had to miss breakfast the following morning (which obviously we paid for in the price of the hotel) because we had to sleep in. Also the night staff didn’t seem to communicate with maids for the following day so they were upset we didn’t check out at reg time. You MUST have access to translating app on your phone. Personally I think the Saturday night stay should always be discounted. Breakfast could’ve used just a few more greens like tomatoes (always out of) and leafy greens like spinach. Maybe another option of scrambled eggs because the sunny side up were often too runny. Also, the tv channels are mostly Italian. You can’t select subtitles like most hotels.
Excellent location and sea view
Even though Hotel Tourist is an older style hotel, it had every amenity such as large room, dining area, bar, private parking, pool and private beach access that we appreciated. It is located less than a kilometre from the town centre, but positioned on a very attractive boulevard. The entire staff made us most welcome. In particular, Marco and Segolene at reception,went out of their way to ensure our stay was so pleasurable and indeed memorable. Thank yo so much. We loved Cefalù and Hotel Tourist.
To be super critical,the hotel could do with a fresh coat of paint and new carpets.
When you stay at Hotel Tourist in Cefalù, you'll be on the waterfront, within a 5-minute drive of Church of Purgatory and Cefalu Cathedral. Featured amenities include limo/town car service, express check-in, and express check-out. Event facilities at this hotel consist of conference space and a meeting room. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
