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.

Staff was incredible, rooms were European old school but clean, comfortable and great location. Worth every penny. Marco is amazing at what he does. We did not partake in breakfast but they had bottled water there which I wish I would have known about before we checked out.

We were welcomed by Marco. He is very cheerful and friendly like the rest of the staff. Good location, good breakfast, clean room. Marco was a perfect guide around Etna and Taormina. Well done and recommend it.

Great location, in an old building on one of the major Catania streets. The warm hospitality was a real highlight of staying here. The owner Marco and his staff were very friendly and we also booked an Etna and Catania tour with Marco which was excellent. A few comments - be aware that there is no elevator (but probably help...

Hotel Etnea 316 is a lovely little hotel at the heart of Catania, perfect location, right in front of Villa Bellini Gardens. Super friendly staff and all speak great English.

Lovely short stay in Catania. Marco, Gaetano and the rest of the team went out of their way to meet all our requests and were helpful in every possible way. Location is perfect to explore Catania. Will definitely return!

Marco and his team made our trip to Catania very special. At the Hotel, which is very clean and neat, all requests were met with a smile and a super efficient service. Marco also runs excursions as a fully qualified tour guide which we took advantage of and we thoroughly enjoyed for the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm Marco had for... More

As far as I´m used on some standard where value match services in middle and western Europe, I cannot recommend this "hotel" showing itself as 3*** in real match 1*. Location is quite nice in the middle of the main street Via Etnea, 10 minutes by walk to anywhere. Rooms are placed in the 2nd floor of old building with... More

Hello Radka, thanks for your comment. You have booked an hotel in the center , it's normal to hear some noise.

We can recommend this place, staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was large, and the location was excellent, both for the airport bus and strolls around the centre of Catania. We had a room facing the Etnae avenue, so it was a bit noisy, but no problem with closed window, and we could observe the life in the... More

If you're sensitive to street noise, request a room in the rear. Marco, Gaetano and Shalim will do all they can to make your stay as perfect as they can. They are truly dedicated professionals, eager to help, knowledgeable about many subjects and super pleasant, to boot. All of Catania's main sights are easily within walking distance. We parked on...
