The only negative I can find is the street noise. So ask for a room off of the street. So all the positives: great rooms with a fresh design. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bartender very knowledgeable and nice. I missed breakfast but the still served a cornetto and cafe'. Molto gentile. Location is good for the area and a... More

All of the staff members are great, especially Giacomo at the front desk who helped us find everything we wanted or needed in Catania. He is a delight to talk with and will gladly share his contagious enthusiasm for all things about Catania and Sicily. The hotel building shows the touch of a master designer who gracefully blended contemporary and... More

Would strongly recommend that you do not accept Room 218 for a couple of reasons. The bathroom doesn't have a shower, just a hand held spray. What's worse, however, is that the side of the tub is higher than normal and there's nothing to grab onto except the glass partition which covers a small upper area of the tub area.... More

This property is located in central Catania and is close to shopping and touristy areas downtown. Very clean and interesting looking rooms. Maybe not for everyone's style but I really enjoyed it. Try it out.

Antonio behind the bar was a delight to talk to - quintessential Italian hospitality. Staff at reception helped me with the idiosyncratic wifi and also gave me a plug adapter. Food was good but the staff made it great - will stay again for sure

Tried too hard to be trendy, so the rooms were uncomfortable with poor lighting, slippery shower floor (with more poor lighting) with nothing to grab for safety, air conditioning that did not work most of the time, unpredictable wifi, no restaurant (now closed), although it did serve breakfast and have light food in the bar. Room "view" was an air... More

This property is well located on a quiet street, yet convenient to shopping and attractions. The hotel features large modern rooms, attentive staff, and a great breakfast. This was one of our best stays during a two week tour of Sicily.

Although the hotel is attractive & the staff friendly room 207 has a number of problems. It is very small - approximately 15' x15' including the bathroom. My husband had to climb over the luggage rack to get in & out of bed. The air conditioning is poor (that is true of several rooms in this establishment). The tile in... More

The Hotel is located in a refurbished building in a relatively central area. The level of the rooms can change a lot, so be very selective and specific when booking. After a few iterations with the staff at the reception, who was extremely helpful, I got a room on the second floor with very high ceilings and a small balcony... More

I liked this hotel. It's located in a stunning old building, which has been renovated fairly recently (it must have been a cutting edge interior not so long ago). A nice bed, but not so great extra bed. Good standard bathroom, again fairly recently cutting edge. The breakfast is really good with excellent coffee, which you don't get at all... More
