Quite the oasis in a big city. After travelling for 14 hours and losing our way thru the streets of Catania, we finally arrived at this wonderful hotel, hidden from street view. We were thrilled when they told us that they would take over and park our car for us. Reminiscent of an Italian Villa, we thoroughly enjoyed our brief... More

The hotel was located in a pretty ordinary suburb a 20 euro taxi trip from the bus terminal. It had a lovely Victorian ambience and the staff were great. A highlight was my chat in Italian with Guiseppe the barman about 1980s rock music.

We stayed 3 nights, the hotel was nice and clean. We got a room with a great sea view. The staff were very helpful (directions, explanations, where to eat, problems, etc.). The breakfast buffet had little variety of mostly sweets. There was ample parking outside the hotel, and we used the nearby bus station to get downtown. Tip- you need... More

Nice Hotel with atmosphere. Very helpful and dedicated lobby staff. Bus stop outside Hotel but no time table. Taxi to city center or vice verse was about 10 -14 € The restuarant in the Hotel had a limited Menu and was quite expensive, however quality was good.

Lovely room - Sicilian style; range of comfortable areas to relax in; great food, both at breakfast and in the restaurant; the location, despite not being in the centre, suited my needs very well; and above all the staff were welcoming, helpful and very kind. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed two nights at the end of our tour. The hotel is lovely, beautiful marble throughout and located in a quiet area but somewhat far from the sites in Catania. You do need to take a taxi. The staff was helpful and pleasant.
