We stayed for one night and were placed in a room, which faced a sort of shaft with lots of ventilation noise. That made our stay a bit uncomfortable. Other then that the room was ok, breakfast good (a bit crowed so we had to sit with other guests on a table), the location of the hotel is a 15-20... More

Thank you jinnirc for your words of appreciation for our English speaking staff. I'm glad you appreciated our orange squeezer machine for complimentary fresh juice. It works in wintertime; now, in summer months, we serve typical sicilian "granita". We hope you come back to taste it. Santi Vento BEST WESTERN Hotel Mediterraneo - Catania More

I couldn't be happier with the staff. They were very helpful with getting me settled in from a long trip. My room wasn't anything spectacular, but it was very cozy.

The hotel is well sign posted in Catania but can be difficult to get to because of all the one way streets around it. There is no parking at the hotel but there is a garage nearby which charges €13 per night, which is well worth it considering the state of the local cars! Both rooms we stayed in were... More
