This is a nice hotel with beautiful interiors. We stayed there for 3 days and really enjoyed the stay. The superior rooms are large, comfortable with en suite bathroom and antique design furniture. The host is very helpful and friendly. The location was great. It is in the center of the city with few piazzas within walking distance. The location... More

We spent a couple of nights in Catania at this hotel. It is a fine base - we took a superior room which was large and comfortable, with a well functioning en suite bathroom. It is right on the central shopping district and close to the sights. It is also a safe area in normal hours, which is an important... More

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
