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

My family and I stayed there for 3 days and had a great time. The rooms were nice, big and sunny. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast fresh. A good variety of products were available.

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

We were not planning to stay in Catania but our flight to Florence got cancelled and we had no other choice. We found the Romano House on Trip Advisor and the reviews were very accurate. It is a terrific modern, boutique hotel in the middle of a very old city. It was extremely quiet and there was only one employee... More

Stayed her for night & had pleasant stay. Check in was fast & room was lovely. Good size, modern and spotlessly clean. Hotel is in great location, close to bars & restaurants and only 10min walk to train station. Breakfast was fine. Would recommend for short stay to Catania

Good breakfast, nice room and close to things worth seeing but also close to less nice quarters. Reception gave good service and were very helpful!! But the hotel is what you may expect in this category, okay.

We only stayed one night in this hotel but it was bliss. We had stayed in an appartment in the city and were looking for one night of luxury before we left, this certainly fulfiled the criteria.
