Loved my stay here. The staff (Marco is fantastic, as were all of them, I just don't recall their names anymore) were amongst the friendliest I have ever come across in my travelling experience. The rooms were large, spacious and relatively clean, sure the showers don't have a lot of pressure, or the toilet seat might be a little loose...but... More

We chose this hotel after reading other reviews and went there with high expectations, which were sadly not met. The hotel is in a perfect location for exploring Catania but that is about all. The service, although reasonably efficient, was not particularly welcoming or friendly. extremely poor breakfast or non breakfast. Dingy room toilet seat dodgy. shower unit fell apart.Wify... More

We too picked this hotel after reading reviews. Think these were extremely misleading. Well placed for central catania. Rooms disappointing. Toilet seat loose, one window pane broken and not replaced- so extremely dangerous if some other bits of glass had fallen. Shame we had to stay for 1 whole week. No air conditioning switched on in the reception area!!!!! why,... More

We picked this hotel after reading the reviews. The location was great, most of the sights are within walking distance and lots of cafes right by doorsteps. The room was very disappointing, it was really dark, the beds felt dirty and old. The worst thing was the bathroom, the toilet seat cover would not stay up so when you sit... 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
