We stayed in this hotel for a week. It is definitely not your average hotel but in a good way. It is quite informal and staff are very nice, friendly, approachable, helpful and answered all our questions (and there was a lot!). Marco, the owner, organises trips including Etna and Taormina which I recommend as compared prices with other places... More

Our room was very spacious, more than we needed. We have been travelling for 3 months and this is one of two hotels that we have stayed at that had a working fridge when one was... More

Stayed here for two nights. The location was fantastic opposite the Giardino Bellini with Via Etnea leading down to the Duomo, fish market and the heart of the tourist sights of the city. Via Etnea was very good for shopping too. The hotel is also very handy for the Alibus to/from the airport as it goes down Via Etnea. The... More

Stayed here for a long week-end in June. Friendly staff, good value for money, clean and tidy. Pretty good location. Had a room at the front of the Hotel, if you are a light sleeper (which I am not) you've got no chance, the 6am roadsweeper must have gone up and down half a dozen times!

This hotel is well situated almost directly opposite Giardino Bellini which was great for the children. It was easy to reach by bus from the airport and well situated to walk to any point in the city. We were in a huge front bedroom so there was some traffic noise. This wasn't too bad if we kept the windows shut,... More

Amazing stay from the minute I first walked through the door. Greeted like a friend, even though I'd never been there before. Everyone I met was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Location is very good, around a 10 minute walk to Duomo. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Airport bus stops almost right outside the hotel. Rooms are very large, particularly... More

Hotel Etnea 316 is located on the 3rd floor (officially – on the first floor, but trust me, it’s at least 2.5th without an elevator) of an apartment building. Pros: - Great location just blocks away from major Catania attractions - High ceiling with character - Very friendly and knowledgeable staff Cons: - Terrible sleep quality: -- Unbearable outside noise,...

Don't stay in this hotel! Several weeks after leaving the hotel, 50 Euros was charged from my credit-card with no reason given. When asking about the charge, I got an angry and rambling email in return saying what terrible guests we were, and how we had to pay to have the room repainted because we had left behind mosquito-blood on...

It was the first leg of our honeymoon and we were looking for somewhere simple to spend the night before we went off to Isola vulcana. The reviews were great and with the price point it was worth the attempt. We were more then happy with everything at the hotel. The staff were extremely warm and helpful. Our room was... More
