The hotel is modern and well-kept. The daily breakfast was decent (pastries, fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon, coffee, tea). The front desk employees were very helpful in directing us to various sights and recommended some restaurants. The map they provided was a photo copy and not all streets were labeled on the map. The map was helpful, but we relied more... More

Romano House has an interesting blend of original 17th century features and ultra-modern Italian design. For most of the time, it works wonderfully well…but crucially - not all of the time. The room we had was spacious and very, very smart. All the amenities you should expect from a hotel of this calibre. The bed was extremely comfortable, storage and... More

The Romano House is a very luxuriously looking hotel in a convenient location, with a friendly staff and a decent breakfast. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. That's about it. Besides the gorgeous package, the contents are rather disappointing. It appears as if the hotel was designed in haste, with not much regards to convenience. For example, the... More

Booked online and were lucky to have a big room. The hotel is a old house which has been renovated in a modern way. The room was elegant and clean, bathroom with marble. The employees (almost only young and good mannered girls) are very servicing and helpful. The breakfast is rich. The hotel is in the center of Catania, at... More

We couldn't believe out luck as not everywhere we book online turns out this good. Absolutely no complaints. We had a HUGE room with a very comfortable bed - so comfortable we slept for 27 hours out of 48. Yes, we needed the sleep but this was a tired travellers delight. Delicious dinner in the restaurant first night. Jovial, professional... More

Romano House is a very smart, modern hotel - but, perhaps, it tries to be TOO smart: for example, the remote cannot work well because of the totally unnecessary surrounds on the TV, which is set into the wall. (And the nice, sunny, conservatory-like foyer is, in fact, terribly hot!) That said, the room was both both large and comfortable,... More
