There are different opinion about the character of Catania. But a stay at the hotel makes everything good and pleasant. Large rooms, daily refills of refreshments in the mini bar, generous breakfast buffet (which had been replenished when needed) and an inviting atrium to relax. The hotel comes with a restaurant which we did not frequent. The menu, however, had... More

Not a palace but a solid place to stay in a very sketchy city. Staff and parking were awesome. Also the restaurant is FIRST CLASS. I had the best hotel food I have ever had at this restaurant. The free minibar is smart and nice touch. Breakfast runs out so arrive early.

We stayed on two occasions at the Katane Palace Hotel. We made our choice based upon Trip Advisor reviews. The hotel is clean and well appointed. The rooms are of a very generous size and the soft drink mini bar is free. English is spoken by all key members of staff. The location is about a 10 minute walk from... More

A quick way to explain this hotel from very first impressions is: Under promise and Over deliver. We were not too sure regarding the free parking nearby and we were allowed to park just in front of the hotel entrance. Booked a Room Only and breakfast was complimentary included. Mini bar was free and refilled daily. Lovely looking hotel, staff... More

Although The Katane Palace is not a palace, it is a clean, quiet and comfortable tourist hotel. Although not directly located in the center, all attractions and transport points can be reached by foot. The rooms are very large and comfortable but might need a fresh coat of paint and a general upgrade concerning electronics, ie tv. The breakfast is... More

We stayed 4 sleepless nights at this hotel. I couldn't close my eyes because of the constant and horrible noise of the very old AC system, even with earplugs. We tested 3 different rooms but no change. We should have left the hotel in the first palace although we appreciated the small courtyard and the staff was quite nice.

I'm giving this hotel and extra star for accommodating me even though I showed up a month before the actual booking dates: yes, they did so for the same low price that I booked the room. The hotel is more of a 3.5 star hotel (perhaps 3 star by American standards) but it does have a very good bar (managed... More

Katane Palace was our choice in Catania, where we decided to spend a couple of days in the beginning of our trip around Sicily. The good: - Location was quite good. While it is not in the middle of the action, it is just 10 minutes away from Via Etnea (Giardini Bellini) and less than 10 minutes walking from the... More

Of the 3 hotels we stayed at (others in Rome and Naples), this place was the best. Staff is very friendly. Clean room. Spacious. The key is substantial! The shower is awesome. Breakfast food was plentiful and in the two mornings we were there we saw different foods each day, which was really fun. Wished we had a chance to... More

I stayed here for five nights. Apart from the pricey dinner at the restaurant here, Katana Palace Hotel is actually an oasis for me. The room is spacious. The decor is formal and classical. Colour tones are dark and sombre. I find the switches very difficult to see because they are all dark in colour. The safe provided in the... More
