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

We paid 134 euros for two nights in a triple room with breakfast. Fantastic location in the city centre, friendly, helpful staff and huge room ( no 6) the plumbing was fine, the furnishing was fine and the view to etna, the duomo and the sea from our room was fab. Ok, it was a bit noisy and there were... More

Whenever I question in the mail before I arrive , Every response was wholehearted and friendly. Bus terminals, airport, obelisk, cathedral, the fish market ...All spots are near this hotel. Above all, I still can't forget the scenery overlooking the cruise ship on the rooftop' s breakfasttime. If I go back to Catania , I will stay in this hotel... More

I've just returned from a weeks stay with my mates @ Hotel Biscari. I was staying in Room 9. We tried to get the 457 bus from Fonterossa Airport but it appears Sicily is not geared up to help tourists to use public transport, so we took a taxi which was expensive @ 31 euros!! We were greeted by Ilenia... More

We stayed for 4 days at this hotel and it was perfect for us. Everything (restaurants/train station/ bus station/attractions) was within walking distace. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was just right. Oscar and the other 2 receptionists were extremely helpful at all times. Would definitely revommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights and we had a wonderful time. We were initially worried that the hotel was up two big flights of stairs but the staff took all our luggage up and generally could not do enough for us. The room was huge and the location is very central. Good air conditioning and a... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly and organised our taxi to the airport at 5am.. and prepared us some breakfast to take with us. The hotel is up 2... More

Beautiful building, spacious rooms, friendly helpful staff, great location in an area with loads of good restaurants and bars, marvellous views from rooftops where breakfast is served... We can only say we loved our stay in Catania and Biscari hotel!
