We booked here just before arriving in Catania and weren't disappointed. The reviews are accurate and as the signage at the accomodation advises, this is not a hotel but a haven in the heart of Catania. Our room was huge with a large, clean ensuite and a balcony overlooking Via Etnea.

We stayed in a superior room, which was huge and furnished in antique style. The large bathroom was ensuite. Everything was very clean and comfortable. No breakfast is available in Gattopardo House but you can have vouchers (3 Euro) for coffee and brioche at the cafe below. This was one of the highlights of the trip - the pastries were... More

Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff - everything you need for a great holiday in Catania! The hotel is located next to the Piazza del Duomo: you can find a lot of attractions here. The airport shuttle has a stop at the nearest corner!

I only had one night here after flying into Sicily, but easily could have stayed longer. The owners were welcoming and friendly and offered excellent recommendations for restaurants and transport. The rooms with external bathrooms are spotless and large, but a little dark (being downstairs). The superior rooms looked much nicer. The common room -- well you couldn't be anywhere... More

Gattopardo House should be rated in the top 20 hotels in Catania. We loved sleeping in the bed room of a 18th Century Mansion of a Duke! We spent hours sitting in the drawing room just soaking in the beauty. The walls and ceiling had amazing paintings!

Arriving and leaving from Catania, we stayed at Gattopardo House twice in a 10 day holiday, and both times we really enjoyed our stay. The 19th century building is beautiful and easy to find. One step off from Via Etnea, walking distance to all the attractions and restaurants. The rooms are very spacious and clean, the air conditioner and wi-fi... More

This hostel is located in walking distance of main turist attractions of Catania. The bedroom is big with inside bathroom. No breakfast is offer, but it was clear for us at the moment of booking. The stuff was very friendly.

We were due to fly out from Catania early on the following morning, so we had decided to stay the night in the city (we had been on vacation near Ribera). We had made a reservation at Gattopardo House and we took a taxi from the car rental return at the airport. We arrived in Via Minoriti and were greeted... More

The location is in city center. The rooms is very spacious and very clean. We (group of 5) stayed here into 2 rooms (1 triple and 1 double). The rooms are equipped with A/C, tv and wifi internet. The private bathrooms was outside the rooms, but that was no inconvenience to us. The owner was very friendly and helpful. If... More
