We arrived late from Nicolosi and Carlos, the manager, was up waiting for us. He was really helpful -- helped us to settle in etc. The rooms are regal and right smack in the heart of Catania's old city centre. It's surreal. We'll definitely come back.

The Gattopardo is almost on the main Via Etnea and five minutes walk from the main historical sights. It describes itself as 'not a hotel' and offers no food or facilities beyond a room (most en suite). But what rooms! We had a four poster bed, the lobby was decorated with antiques and the room adjoining reception could have come... More

Situated in central part of the city, it's close by to everything. Run by a really friendly and helpful family. The building is fantastic , history , history and history! The rooms are big and clean Step back in time and experience something really special It's not main stream but it tick all the boxes Highly recommend

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
