The friendly and very helpful staff sets this hotel apart from the other Catania hotels that I've stayed at. Restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance. The rooms are what I've come to expect when traveling in Italy and throughout Europe. The breakfast was more than plentiful, eggs, meat and cheese, fruits, pastries, and cereals. The hotel bartender, Chiara,... More

You can tell they spent a lot of money rebuilding this place. It has bad bones though. My room was really nice but then smelled like mould when you took a shower. Lights in the room are too dim at night. Breakfast is allright but not great. Location sucks. But try to find a better hotel around. This is probably... More

This is a good hotel to stay. The staff is excelent and verry professional. Stayed here for tree weeks. But the down side iff you stay in the rooms on ground level the phone connection is bad. Internet connection s verry good. If i come back to Catania i want to stay here.

I stayed with my partner here in December 2014. When checking in (it was evening - around 9pm), I asked about local attractions and if they had any leaflets. The receptionist responded with a shrug and gave us a map of the city centre. Day time staff were a lot more helpful. We were told we were booked into the... More

Only when we got there did we realize that this hotel is in a shady part of town. Manageable, but be warned...it gets rowdy. The place is very well designed. It's a series of boxes inside. (You have to see it to understand.) The bar is quite nice and the staff is very pleased to load up your table with... More

We occupied rooms 214 and 215 for 5 days around Christmas. Didn't have the noise issue which one of the travellers mentioned - perhaps the music-loving neighbour was away for holidays (!)... Rooms were nicely decorated and modern though I expected something bigger from the photos on the hotel website. Still, they are by no means small by European standard.... More

We checked in on 12/31 for a 1 night stay on New Years Eve. We made the reservation a few months in advance and we're pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We got there early and didn't expect our room to be ready yet, but it was. We stayed in suite 105 which was amazing. The staff was very accommodating and... More

The pros: close to great restaurants, most of the staff was friendly and hospitable. There was one excellent server who hooked us up with fresh bar snacks. The bed is comfy (like seriously). Bathroom was clean. Bar and restaurant food was solid. The cons: So loud outside, can't access the front desk from the rooms (phone system was down), spotty... More

We chose this hotel because of the situation - close to the bus and train stations- and because it had a special offer on. Quite frankly it doesn't look much from the outside, but inside it is really very nice. Our room looked out onto a very pretty little courtyard on the roof, and had all the facilities you would...

A tranquil, spacious hotel in busy old part of town. Magnificent old building, refashioned as modern hotel. Enormous bedroom and bathroom, with clever lighting. Breakfast buffet superb. Worth an extra night or two.
