We enjoyed staying at this hotel as the staff were very helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. It is well located for getting into the city centre by foot and for visiting the sights! We ate breakfast every day there and there was always a good variety of food. We also had dinner one evening at the hotel... More

Romano House shows classic elements of boutique hotels, a fancy location (a renewed old house), design rooms, friendly staff and a good restaurant. what misses? some local taste (limited at the restaurant menu). only hic: mosquitos! hotel staff is pleased to do so something!

From the moment we walked into this hotel very late at night we were spoilt. Our car was taken away and parked for us, we were upgraded to a bigger room and then the restaurant stayed open for us. Firstly - the staff throughout the hotel were lovely, so very kind and helpful. The room was lovely and spacious. Our... More

Having read a few reviews on TA, I was a little worried that the hotel might not be all that I had hoped: but it was fantastic. Right from check in the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are huge and clean, and the decor is modern despite the older facade. A great breakfast, and the bar is a... More

We had a very spacious room in this beautiful old palazzo which has been renovated. The design furniture and appliances are classy and modern. We particularly liked the location of this hotel as we found that we had excellent access to lots of nearby restaurants and monuments. The staff was friendly and efficient, the breakfast abundant.

The hotel is in a fairly nondescript area but with a little bit of observation there are many interesting locations close at hand. The hotel is superbly appointed and the staff are extremely attentive. There is an exceptionally good bar and drinks come with a large array of snacks. Breakfast is of a very high standard and I would not... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this fantastic hotel during our recent visit to Catania. I booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor review and its location. The room is very modern and elegantly furnished (almost as high tech as a Citizen M hotel). All of the staff were extremely helpful from restaurant recommendations to calling us a taxi.... More

We showed up at the Romano House after navigating the streets of Catania in our rental car only to be told by the front desk that they had computer issues and didn't have a room for us and had moved us to their sister property the Romano Palace. The guy at the front desk told us they had "called people".... More
