The hotel is in a small, quite run down town away from Catania so you need to get a bus to get anywhere or hire a car (you need to be very brave to hire a car as the Sicilians drive mentally). There are limited facilities within walking distance of the hotel and you need to either eat at the... More

Antonio helped us in every way possible. He really understands the clients. Breakfast very delicious. This was our 2nd time staying and once again we are very satisfied and pleased -... More

We have stayed in very nice hotels but never have I been to one where every single staff member does that bit more to ensure you enjoy your stay. Nothing was too much trouble! The hotel is beautifully decorated - the main part in keeping with the style of the original villa. The pool was very welcome in the heat... More

A lovely hotel on the outskirts of Catania. Buses regularly into the town for €1. We stayed in the new part of the hotel and the rooms were clean if a little small. The breakfast was good and the staff were extremely helpful.However during our stay the owner had a party and we were treated appallingly badly. The hotel bar... More

For 5 nights we stayed in the "new"part of the hotel defined as Next. Our rooms were modern. We had free wifi. The staff was very helpful and nice. The breakfast buffet style was served in the 'old' hotel with exceptional views directly to Etna. The hotel has a swimming pool and a relaxation area. We received free vouchers to... More

Quite hotel in a quite area. Some distance from the center but it is easily reached by bus, bus stop practically on the doorstep. Room clean but hopeless breakfast. Hard boiled eggs were frozen and ham was smelly. Food had to finish before replacement occurred.

A nice villa with classic rooms and modern rooms. Our room was modern, very small and need some maintenance. You could hear the neighbours too well. Free Wifi was disconnected and they did not bother to fix it. To park your car in the parking of the hotel, you need to pay 8 euro per day and leave your car... More
