Romano House is a quiet hotel in the residential district of Catania, Sicily. Although it's not exactly in a prime location like the UNA hotel, most tourist attractions are within walking distance. We got to the Bellini Theatre in 5 minutes and other major attractions such as the Cathedral in no more than 10-15 minutes. The room and bathroom are... More

We stayed at Hotel Romano House in Catania for a full week between Christmas and New Year's and we sure will be back. First of all Catania even with it's Unesco world heritage status is still an underrated gem. Few cities in the world can compete with the stunning combination of sea and mountain (the snow-covered Etna) and so much... More

We stayed 3 nights and loved it. Luckily, we had one one of the finest bedrroms with an 18th century ceiling, curved, featuring the painting of a young girl with a small boy. With the contrast of modern and high quality furniture and fabrics, it was breath-taking. Perhaps the best bedroom I ever had in my life, Th rest of... More

It's a small boutique and unique hotel. Front desk staff was super friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was good and there is a nice roof terrace. With its "walking distance" to everything that counts in central Catania, we had a great stay !

The hotel was very good and the staff extremely helpful. Friendly manager! They kindly intervened when a taxi driver attempted to rip us off for the short drive from the airport. All of a sudden the meter was on 33euros! They later got us an honest cab driver for another destination. Very clean, quiet with a great breakfast - one... More

The location was very central ( turn left though as you exit - if you turn right its a very dodgy red light district) Can be noisy at night though. We had a superb suite on front, amazing ceiling height - air conditioning is fine poorly fitted windows meant sound proofing not great and though only three years old, cracked... More

This hotel is modern, centrally located, with friendly staff. The one explanation they never made was that their A/C is connected to the window and if your window is not shut, tightly, the A/C will not come on! Their computer, at the front desk, can tell you if your window is shown as "open," so check before you go to... More

A beautiful and luxurious hotel close to the centre. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the suite on arrival, which was a fabulously large room with high baroque ceiling and beautifully renovated with a stylishly ecclectic mix of the baroque and the ultra modern - very impressive! All beautifully clean, with luxury linen and brown marble bathroom. We... More
