The hotel is Italian modern in decor. My room was all white, clean - great bed. The staff is incredible - they assisted me with taxi to airport - I had to change time of departure several times - these requests were always taken care of with a smile. The breakfast was great & the barman, Antonio, was outstanding -... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in July. The hotel is quite funky and modern. It kind of feels like you're in a warehouse when you enter the room, but once you are inside it's all modern. There is a rooftop area to relax in the sun, and two private car spaces in front of the hotel, fee of charge... More

This hotel is situated quite in centre, on the edge of an area that is not the safest of the city. Some positive points: very friendly personell, handy location, quick check in and check out, nice entrance and hall. Negative points: poor maintanance of the rooms ( shower not working properly, television not working properly, lights in the bathroom and... More

my room on the first floor was very noisy. It is like sleep on the street . The team put a parfume all over the hotel which is not my taste. Otherwise the clerk was nice. And the decoration of the room was nice. Maybe a carpet would be a good idea to add to the decor.

I had booked a superior room through expedia. The room was large enough, and well equipped. It is a fairly modern hotel, but I would question the decoration. I did not have a sofa in the room, instead there was kind of a settee in the middle of the room. Also, the room was facing a courtyard with another room... More

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
