This hotel was an old palace.. we were shown to our room and it was the largest room I have ever seen. High ceilings and large windows everywhere... very grand. 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!

the best hotel for price in relation to quality I've ever experimented. fascinating, suggestive, that's for sure got some little problem (but who doesn't have) but got caratheristics very rare in a hotel so cheap. best thing: the breakfast terrace problem: no elevator 3rd floor thank you very much hotel biscari and to all your staff.

When I arrived, the hotel personnel helped me carrying my luggage and he was very kind helping other inquiries that I asked. My room was specious but the sound from the water system... More

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...

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.
