It was a great five days. The view from our balcony of the sun rising over the Mediterranean set the tone for a great day.

We had a very successful conference with about 60 participants from all over Europe and the United States. The team was outstanding in terms of hospitality regarding the guests and their needs and wishes. We also worked smoothly with the staff regarding preparing meeting rooms, information technology, meals and coffee breaks. Everything that was agreed upon was done perfectly!

It was a great experience. Rooms are clean but not too big. Overview to the Mediterranean sea. Excellent view from the terrace to the sea and Mount Etna. Really close to Catania city center. Personnel is friendly and warm welcoming. Breakfast was very good. Nice conference facilities.

Just stayed for a night, but a very nice hotel and clean. It was very quite although it was at the begging of the week. Just a bit expensive when adding that parking is extra. Lovely staff and nice breakfast

For this price you expect an good hair dryer, no hair dryer-machine. The proximity to the center is 3.4 km. Rooms with sea view are more expensive but therefore very loud because of the main street. Breakfast is very nice.

I was not disappointed. The two receptionists greeted us politely and they were very helpful. The room was very clean and we... More

I brought a group of 30 to this hotel to use as a base from which to explore the east of Sicily. The booking process was made very easy by Fabiola who patience was endless. The check-In process was fast and efficient with rooms already allocated when we arrived. We chose to eat in the hotel and the waiter Carmelo... More
