The Lerux Reviews

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.

One bathroom between three bedrooms, not convenient when you need the toilet urgently. Shower attachment was broken. Was tricky to find due to the one way system. Host does not live in the property, so we had to call him to ask him to come open for us. Able to find a parking spot outside the flat. Positives -- fan in the room, great map for free from the host, supermarket close by, host was very helpful and breakfast was very good (with a personal touch).


The Lerux Reviews from the Web

Fantastic host and a lovely place too. Amazing view of the coast and temples too!


Really nice room, everything is absolutely clean. Rugerro is a very friendly host. He gave us a lot of tips where to go. He even offered us a very delicious glass of wine when we arrived. Our room had a large terrace with a fantastic view to the "Vale dei Templi", especially at night. If you go by car you can park for free at a fuel station just 1 or 2 minutes walk away.


Liked: The room was big and confortable. We had a pleasant time in this place. Didn't like: We discovered that it's not a B & B, so no breakfast. Neither kitchen. But we recommend the room anyway!


Liked: they offer me to change room for the second night and were comprehensive for the problems of cleanliness and double bed Didn't like: there was a coakroach in the room which wasn't very clean and not tidy (stuff from owner was in/under the furniture)they reproach me to arrive after the time there offices closethe room was not a double room as booked


the room is not as good as we think, very simple and a little bit cold.


Liked: very good location, great flat, the most helpful host, very friendly Didn't like: nothing


Its an horrible, dirty, and awful-placed appartment! We had a small and unpleasant room and a shared, dirty bathroom. Were supposed to be picked up by the staff at the "bus station" but, instead of, we found nobody, had to walk very long throw that hideous neightborhood and, even, we were told off!! Definitively, I DONT RECOMMEND IT.


I'm sorry I spent extra money with taxi in Florence, and then there was no much money to finish my travel, and I didn't gone to Agrigento...
