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

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.

I stayed at the Hotel Biscari when I visited Catania. I chose this hotel because it was close to the event that I participated during the trip. 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...

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
