The staff of the hotel welcomed us nicely (I was traveling with a colleague for business). The rooms we were given were both very good, up to the four stars they have, very clean, high ceilings, comfortable beds, a bit minimalistic in the furniture (although the rooms facing the street might be noisy because of the night traffic). Bathrooms are... More

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
