Room was a decent size but outdated with scratched furniture. Bed was uncomfortable and shower had mold around the edges. Location was central and good but that was about all that was good about this hotel.

We arrived in Catania late at night, and left before dawn, so we had little use of the Savona save for sleeping. That was just as well, because it has a tired, lethargic feel to it – functional but unappealing. The desk clerk when I first arrived (leaving the car several blocks away to try to locate the place before... More

.Great location ..and that`s about it! The room stunk of cigarette smoke. We could not brush our teeth using the running water in the bathroom. I asked the front desk if the food and coffee we were to have for breakfast was washed with good water and he came across as if he were insulted for being asked such a... More

My partner & I choose this hotel off the net and being our first visit to Sicily we felt it was going to be pot-luck as to our choice well we were thrilled with it. This is a perfectly located clean and excellent hotel in the heart of a vibrant and architecturally beautiful area of Catina. The rooms are kept... More

Nice little hotel just of the main square by the cathedral in Catania. The rooms are a good size and clean. Ours looked onto the main street. The a/c worked really well which was a welcome relief to the heat. Staff were nice and friendly. Catania itself is a beautiful city definitely worth visiting. The architecture is amazing. There are... More

I was passing through Catania and stayed for a night at the Savona. The price was right, the room excellent and the location superb. Other reviewers have complained about the stairs but I found them about the same as other urban Italian hotels that don't have lifts. A really nice surprise.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, if slightly gloomy in the decor. The room had everything one needs and was well equipped with all the basic necessities. The breakfast was adequate and the staff were efficient if not especially friendly. It was easy to reach, late evening, from the airport, which was what we needed. Although our room overlooked the...

We stayed here with family awaiting a flight out of Catania to Rome the next day for most and we stayed an additional night. Older hotel in a great location close to all the attractions and piazza. There were plenty of things to do, the main street for shopping right outside, as well as a tour that we took by... More

This hotel was selected because it was our last night in Sicily and we wanted to be close to the airport in Catania where we were leaving from the following morning. We paid $85 euro for the night. The room was okay. A bit dated and dark. However it was relatively clean with the exception of needing an update. The... More

The Hotel Savona has comfortable rooms, a nice breakfast room, and helpful staff. It is a great location to walk to many of the sights in Catania. It also is just a short taxi ride to the airport if you have an early flight. (We took the bus from the airport and walked a few blocks to the hotel for... More
