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...

My partner and I stayed at VDB for four nights earlier this month. From the off the staff were very pleasant and more than helpful. There are two parts to the hotel, the old and new part, we stayed in the new part. The room was clean and newly decorated, sporting a Jacuzzi style bath, albeit a touch on the... More

We stayed 6 nights at this hotel. The rooms are newly renovated. Sound insulation is poor. The noises from other rooms. The reception staff are friendly. Breakfast is poor. Staff at the restaurant is not punctual. At 7.00 there was none. At 7.10 to 7.15 minutes came the first employee of the restaurant. The food was the same in all... More

Having stayed at Villa Del Bosco a few times in the past I was hoping for a similar experience this time around but was unfortunately disappointed. In the modern part of the hotel the decor in the bedrooms now looks tired, certainly in the room we were in, and this time around the service was not up to standard. Breakfast... More

The hotel is located on the upper side of Catania, in a quiet area, at about 25mn by bus from the historical center, and 30mn from the airport by car through an easy road. The view on the Etna from the breakfast room terrace is impressive. Take a moment to sip an espresso while admiring the giant volcano dominating the... More

We were a party of three and Guiseppe and the staff were kind enough to get us connecting rooms in this lovely villa with incredible furnishings, paintings and tapestries in common areas and very modern decorated rooms. The lounge/bar has a wonderful grand piano and very comfortable chairs to experience the beauty of the décor.. The property has two sections... More

If you're looking for a hotel with great character and exceptional staff.. this is the place to go! The building has a beautiful exterior, classic interior and was very clean. My boyfriend and I stayed in the gold presidential suite and it was stunning. The large terrace with great views was breathtaking and the room was great in itself. The... More

We have stayed here two years ago and we loved this "mignon" hotel, with its unique rooms, but it seems that something happened since then. First, you should know that the location is quiet, but far from any interesting spot, so you have to move by car or bus. Then, even if the rooms are clean and the staff do... More
