Hotel Gresi is a perfectly adequate three star hotel. Certainly nothing fancy, an okay value for the money. The room was small, dark, and a bit musty, but seemed reasonably clean. The bed was uncomfortable but the location was good- just off via Etna which is the main drag in Catania.

+ well located in a side street off Via Etna, wifi worked very well plus AC - poor breakfast, what was most strange was to be woken up when I had the 'do not disturb' sign by a young man on reception who kept shouting at me for having disturbed the maid.There must have been some misunderstanding as 30 mts...

Wasn't too sure when we arrived as taxi took us down a back street and the hotel is beside a huge market which had just closed and litter etc was everywhere. Hotel is on first floor of an old building.However it is just off Via Etnea and very central. Bus to airport was 1 euro when going home. Ceiling paintings... More

All you can ask for in a hotel: great location! Just around the awesome market of Catania (2 walking minutes), the famous elephant (10 walking minutes), the flea market (15 walking minutes). You are right in the middle of it all (yes, the University too). Nice clean rooms, good breakfast (one of the tastiest croissants I ever had) and an... More

I recently stayed here while in Catania and it was decent! The staff were friendly, the place was clean (unlike Catania itself) and not too over priced, it was also in a good location so I'd recommend it.

Not great. Only spent one night here but beds uncomfortable, service monosyllabic, rooms dark and grim, and cockroaches in bathroom. On the plus side it has a lift, and is well-located in the centre of Catania.

Located in the heart of Catania, this hotel has all you need for a pleasant stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast in the morning, we felt at home! Close to local markets (which I really recommend to visit!) and right in the middle of Catania's city centre where you... More

This hotel has an elevator. Personnel was very friendly and helpful, asking all our questions. A clerk actually walked back to our car with us and directed us so we could drive to the hotel -- one-way streets can make driving a real challenge in many cities. They gave us directions for dropping off the car and, when we asked,... More
