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

I confess, I expected something much nicer. The location on Via Etnea was just what we wanted for our very short visit to Catania (one and a half days), but the hotel itself was hot, cramped, shabby. The public sitting room, which should have been a lovely hang-out area when not serving as the breakfast room, was so warm and... More

I went back to my hometown after more than 30 years of absence, and so I knew that the hotel position was ideal for accessing the tourist attractions in the center (my wife is a foreigner and wanted to see the place) and for easily leaving town by car to explore the surroundings. What I was not prepared for was:... More

the hotel is situated in the middle of the Main Street in Catania close to everywhere. We had a very friendly welcome from Marco, the owner and his staff Daniel and Francesco. Marco also runs an excursion business so we took a trip to Mount Etna with 2 pother couples from the hotel. This turned out to be a most... More

I´m writing this review a couple of weeks after leaving the hotel but nevertheless we wanted to say that this hotel was definitely a great choice for us. The staff are so nice, welcoming and helpful and really surprise us how they went out of their way to make our stay in Catania great. At first, when you see the... More

Only stayed here our first night in Sicily so the fact that the hotel was so easy to find in its central location was fantastic. Marco and the lads were really friendly and helpful - local maps provided and eateries recommended. Our room was spacious (maybe the bathroom could have been a little cleaner but I'm a stickler!) . I... More

Had a terrific time at the Hotel Etnea 316, everyone was very friendly & helpful. Went on 2 tours with Marco, which were great, he is so knowledgeable about the area & we had a great time with him. Would stay here again as it is so central & would also recommend it to friends. Kate & Gilberto

Hotel Etnea 316 is an excellent choice of accommodation: it is easy to find and an ideal starting point to explore the city. A small hotel with highly efficient, yet personalised service and a definite feel-good factor. It offers everything what one needs to make the stay comfortable and relaxed, clean rooms and bathroom, fresh fruit for breakfast and strong... More

The hotel is up two flights of stairs. Being older with lots of luggage was a problem. That said, it is very well located close to most things a tourist would want, attractions and cafes. Staff is excellent - friendly and helpful. Breakfast is OK, but nothing to write home about. Bedrooms and bath are functional and clean - utilitarian... More

I had read so many glowing reviews on TA and had so many positive interactions with the very helpful staff before arriving, but in the end I just didn't love it, or at least must note there are pros and cons (I would give 3.5 stars if that were possible. Pros: Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. We had a... More
