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

We were initially put in one of the three annex... More

The hotel is up-hill, not exactly central but in a relatively calm area of the city. Rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The swimming pool is a master piece: it seems a Persian carpet entering in the water. The service is good and staff gentle. Breakfast is served at last floor with a nice view of the sea. Food is...

One building Very beautiful Classic Italian and the other building a very modern boutique hotel. All staff extremely helpful and welcoming, Giuseppe even bought in a case of non alcoholic beer for my husband after we explained that he... More

We stayed for one night on our way around Sicily. The hotel was a beautiful villa, felt very warm, friendly staff, generous breakfast. We loved our room, and the bar. I even got to play the old grand piano whilst sipping a spritz. We felt like locals would definitely recommend food value for money

We stayed in room 307 in the old part of this property. The hotel is way out of the centre of Catania with not much around besides a simple neighbourhood. The room looks pretty at first but quickly you realise it is not well sound insulated, the beds are extremely hard and small, the shower is not hot if you... More

Really friendly and helpful staff, the double room in the VDBNext part was really great! Nice view on the Etna from the balcony. Unfortunately due to some technical issue we had to change rooms and we were moved to a suite with a nice roof terrace and jacuzzi. The kids really loved that! The food in the restaurant is really...

Reception and bar staff were lovely, welcoming and friendly, however cleaning staff were very loud and woke me and other guests up. This hotel conjures up different thoughts as I loved the quirky old hotel with lots of charecter, comfortable bar, nice sun terraces and plunge pool but hated the contemporary new part which is where our room was, far...
