Very centrally located -- good to visit the Valley of the Temples
We rented the family room at the Lerux for 3 nights -- one double bed and two single beds in a large room with its own bathroom. The room also had a small balcony and french doors leading to it (with a view of old Agrigento), a small table and two chairs, a TV, and two bed tables with lamps. The room had air conditioning, but we never used it. The bathroom had a shower and a bidet. The water pressure and hot water supply were good. The guest house also has a common area consisting of a small eat-in kitchen, with a round table and four chairs. The kitchen has a small refrigerator with built in ice box, and a small supply of cups, mugs, plates. There is no microwave or kettle. Guests do not have use of the gas burners. I did see an iron and blow dryer, but we didn't need any of these. The room came with linens and towels, which were thin/quick drying. We found the place to be very clean and Ruggero was very welcoming. In fact, we had a late arrival and he waited for us until we arrived at 10 pm. He also gave us directions to various shops. The Lerux is located in the maze-like streets of the old city. There is a bit of climbing up narrow passages and stairways to get to it. If you have a lot of luggage, beware! We had a rental car and parked in the gas station parking lot on Via Empedocle (no fee), then walked up to the guest house. The parking lot is well used and we were worried at times that we would not find a space, but got lucky during our stay. The guesthouse is within walking distance to the train station (?10 mins). It also is within easy walking distance to a small supermarket, bakery and fruit/veg store. There is a small African Market store at the parking lot (good place to buy water bottles before heading out). The drive to the entrance to the Valley of the Temples park is pretty straight forward (maybe 10 mins away). We came mostly to see this and were not disappointed. To walk through all the ruins will take 2 hours or so at a leisurely pace. There is also a lovely garden (separate admission) in the park with a covered picnic area that I highly recommend. Ruggero is able to sell tickets to the garden at a reduced price. When we were there there was a street fete starting in the evening and going on until 3 am, with food, lively music and dancing. The Lerux was in the middle of the party. So, if you want to be in the mix of things, this location is also a good fit.
