We stayed three nights Hotel Etnea has clean rooms and is centrally located, with a beautiful park very close by. Our room was at the side of the hotel and was quiet.Marco and Gaetano were... More

We stayed here for just one night and it was certainly good value and a nice location. When you first arrive, it doesn't feel too welcoming, an intercom then through huge grey doors into a courtyard. Next, up two flights of stairs (no lift) but then you go inside and it's bright and quirky. All good after that, friendly and... More

If you are a first time visitor to Sicily and speak little or no English, this is the perfect hotel. Marco, the owner, made our trip a great success by taking us wherever we wanted to go and telling us the history of the many ancient sites along the way. From giant Greek theatres to volcanos to ocean side restaurants,... More

We stayed 3 nights in Catania and had a great experience there. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff is gracious, helpful and accomodating. They all spoke good English. The hotel is centrally located and is within walking distance to the major sites in Catania. Marco was a fabulous host., funny, intelligent and informative.

So far, in Catania have I stayed at around six different hotels. I find Hotel Etnea 316 to be best of all of them in the class of medium-price hotels. Among many other reasons, that was due to the kindly and helpful personnel. Moreover, it was the first hotel in which it was really easy to communicate in English with... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Hotel Etnea 316. Marco and Gaetano couldn't have been more helpful, even arranging for a lovely cake to be waiting there for my boyfriend's birthday. It made it so special. We went on a tour of Mt Etna with Marco for a great price. Marco really knows his stuff and is full... More

The hotel itself is nice and comfy but there is no elevator so beware. The rooms were very basic but we weren't really expecting the ritz Carlton. They were big though. They only have 1 pillow per bed. We requested extra ones which they addressed immediately but we weren't told that we would be charged for the extra pillows. About... More

My wife and I recently spent six days based at Hotel Etnea 316 whilst exploring Oriental Sicily with Marco. The hotel is in central Catania within a short distance of all major cultural and tourist features of the city. Our room was reasonably spacious, clean and comfortable, although the shower was "characterful" and took a bit of getting used to.... More

Abundant energy and enthusiasm, Marco fits the bill as a welcoming host. He parks your car in reserved area and moves baggage to your room. The room was nicely appointed and close to all the major sightseeing. As a previous guide, Marco points you in the right direction, whatever your interest. Recommend this hotel and its proprietor.
