A great find, slightly out of the main city centre. One hotel but two building joined by a terrace and walkway. 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...

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
