We bounced through Catania for a 2 night stay to visit Mt Etna during some spare time in an otherwise busy itinerary. The hotel reception and rooms are on the third level, and only has stair access, so if you have heavy bags, you will have earned a beer once you get to there. Secure gate access from the road...

The hotel is situated close to the city center and easy walking distance to the shops and and sites. The hotel is situated at the top of a three storey 800 year old building with lots... More

We arrived in Catania for an overnight stay that extended to 3 nights. There is so much to see in this city, and what better base than Hotel Biscari. It is in the centre of the city, making everything in the city within walking distance. Each time we arrived back at the hotel we were greeted with friendly smiles. Because... More

Because it was already dark and we had some trouble finding the entrance. Then we had to climb several flights with our bags. But we were met by a very friendly young woman who checked us in and it was all good from there. We had been looking for something near the Duomo and we couldn't have gotten much closer.... More

This hotel is very good value hotel in the very center of Old city of Catania, so you can visit everything by foot. The rooms are big (our with small balcony). The breakfast is served on the terrace with the view of old town roofs.. Also perssonel is very nice.

we have selected Catania for it's central location in Sicily, which suited perfectly our intentions to see the island. We did not expect much either from the city or the hotel. And what a surprise! Spacious , airy room with a balcony on the street side of the 18c building- clean, simple, could easily house a couple with a child.... More

Nice and cozy hotel in center of Catania. Attentive personel, nice terrace for breakfast. A parking is small, but personel will help you to park your car into :) I think its good place to stay for low cost.

I travel often to Sicily and was extremely impressed with this hotel. Clean, central, wonderful rooms, beautiful terrace and professional management. Hotel Biscari is a gem - and I plan on staying there often in the future.

I have just come back from my holiday in Sicily, and it has been a pleasure staying in Hotel Biscari. From its central location just by the heart of the old town, to the warm and inviting family running the hotel, I can only hold the hotel in high regard. The price is very modest for rooms located in a... More
