Nice large familyroom. Very friendly people at the reception and at the breakfast. Nice terrace for the breakfast and you can get coffee at your choice. At the street the hotel entrance doesnt look very attractive. You need to take a lot of steps to get to the floor where the hotel is located. But once you are there its... More

We stayed at the Hotel Biscari for two nights, and we had a wonderful stay. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Our arrival and check-in was efficient and welcoming even though we arrived at 2. am in the night. The rooms are comfortable (we had a huge and comfortable triple room) and especially the roof terrace is amazing. The... More

We were 5 siblings aged between 50 and 66, visiting Sicily to revive memories of when we used to visit nearly every summer on our dad's yacht over 35 and 50 years ago. We rented a room for 5 at Hotel Biscari which stands in a very good location in the Centre of Catania. The room was very spacious and... More

Weren't informed beforehand that we needed to book a parking space. Mugged at the door of the hotel, be extremely careful if arriving at night. The night clerk was not helpful post mugging, should have called the police immediately according to the police. Also had to find a parking space, making worse the whole post mugging experience. Then... Extremely loud... More

I'll start by saying that I made my reservation online - and in the request portion - indicated that I would like a quiet room - in both english and Italian. The staff, during my two night stay, were extremely warm, gracious and helpful. The first room was large and clean, linens crisp, mattress comfortable. However. My room had a... More

I don't feel I can give a completely rounded view of this hotel as we stayed in rather unusual circumstances. Catania was abnormally cold, wet and windy during our stay, so all I would say is that this probably wouldn't be the best choice of hotel in the winter months! The hotel is an old palazzo with high ceilings, not... More

Somewhere in the middle of a bustling town is an oasis otherwise known as the Biscari. The contrast between the tranquility of the rooms and the outside is quite pronounced and really appreciated after a night out sampling the delights of Catania. I stayed in room 6 which was spacious, simply decorated with a juliet balcony overlooking via Emmanuele. Best... More

We stayed in the Biscari for one night in August 2014. We stayed in Room 3. The hotel is centrally located in a quiet road and is only a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and the centre. It is situated a 10 minute walk from the bus station which is where the airport bus drops you off. There are... More
