We stayed here for one night whilst touring Sicily. Check in was ok, our only issue was parking as the hotel had blocked off half the car park in preparation for a coach party arriving. However, a member of staff helped us find a parking space and assisted us with our luggage. The room was slightly dated, as was the... More

This family run hotel offers a good package a reasonable price. It has a well sized pool which is well maintained. Free Parking facility close to the rooms, which makes it easy to transfer heavy luggages or a sleeping infant. A satisfying breakfast. Excellent location whereby Catania centre is only 15mins away by car. Nice views of I Ciclopi. It... More

I have stayed in many 5 star hotels which perhaps should have been rated 3 star or less. The Lachea is correctly rated as 3 star, however for position, for views and most significantly the quality of service and friendliness of staff it is exceptional. Firstly on arrival at midday the room was ready clean and smart, with a wonderful... More

If you like to mingle with the locals, this is a very good hotel to stay, it's not too far from Catania, far enough to escape the traffic, you can leave the car at the hotel and catch the bus to Catania. Close to local restaurants and bars. We used the hotel as a base and travelled to various points... More

We expected much more for what we paid: no air conditioning, smelly and old rooms and general atmosphere was more of an old hospital than a hotel. Avoid this hotel and better choose a small nice B&B somewhere in the area!!

First of all, the hotel is in Aci Trezza......It's a good little hotel, nice owners and staff. Decent sized room, lots with a terrace, but always plenty of traffic noise. Small shower rooms, plenty of hot water, but basic fittings. It's time to say however that it provides excellent value for money. I've eaten better food in Italy, but there... More

Good value, good location, nice friendly family-run hotel. We had a lovely room with view of the Faraglioni - clean & comfortable. There is a pool, which was nice after spending day in sun. Would comment that it is not in Aci Castello, but AciTrezza so GPS had hard time - you can walk to the Castello in Aci @... More
