Our stay at Hotel Plaza Catania was an enjoyable one. The staff at reception were very helpful and the rooms were also clean and nice. Just a suggestion... If u are a guest, I would not expect that you have to pay for the car park. Wifi was free and very good too.

Spent a week in this hotel and use it as a base camp for visiting southern Sicily. Everything was as expected from such hotel, staff was very friendly and helpfull. A big advantage is the availability of an underground parking. The hotel features a nice roof terrace with great view over the sea. The location is within walking distance (3-5... More

Chose this for the last night of the holiday to be close to the airport and so did not have great expectations but in hind sight wished we had stayed up market and taken the 1 hour drive to the airport. You will not see the entrance to the basement car park until you pull up on the busy main... More

It is difficult to say anything about this hotel. I had no problems, the staff was kind, but at the same time it was not really interesting. Parking is a problem and you cannot even go with your car to the entrance. When I take a hotel a little far from city center (like this one) I do expecting either... More

We walked in without a reservation and they accommodated us on the spot, the room was nothing special but more than adequate. We were very happy with our stay until we realized that because we had no reservation we paid probably double the regular rates for a very mediocre room on the first floor in the back. Seemed like they... More

One of our family members married in Sicile and this hotel had been chosen as a place of stay for all the wedding guests by the bride to make the organization and transportation easier. Our room was spacious with a huge terrace and the sea view. Bathroom was also very spacious (room 121 for 4 persons). It provided all the... More

Stayed there for 3 nights and it is a great base to explore sicily's east coast. It is not in the city centre which makes it easy to find free parking nearby and it is located in a quite new part of town, which prevents to see all the decaying buildings you would find in the city centre... The hotel,... More

We stayed at the Aga as a couple in the last week of June 2014. We unfortunately both had stomach upsets for the week (Not related to Aga) so spent more time than we really wanted at the hotel. I am basing this review on the price we paid which was £48 per night as part of an Easyjet package... More
