This accommodation was in a superb central location in the heart of Catania. We booked two rooms for one night only while we went to Etnaland and Mt Etna. The staff were great, friendly and helpful. The rooms were dated but the building would be classed as a 'listed building' in the UK so maybe they have a similar system... More

An old and central hotel, just in the city's shopping centre. With two very busy roads with lots of traffic. The place was clean and the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, the traffic noise keeps on going through the night.Without double glazing and old wooden apertures that don't close perfectly ,you just can't keep the noise out. Otherwise, I have...

The location of this place is perfect: right on the main street. The building is fantastic baroque style and the rooms are lovely inside. The staff were friendly and very helpful for helping us organise our time in Catania.

The hotel is situated in the main street of Catania so everything is very close - the main squares, the bus station, the markets. My single room was a bit smaller than I had expected but everything was there and very clean. The staff is really nice and helpful.

This hotel will always be one of my favourites, the location is fantastic, rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast isn't amazing (but it's good enough), the couple who run the place are lovely & above all the price is very low for what you're getting.

After reading the other reviews, I feel compelled to write one of my own, even though I hesitated to write a review of San Demetrio Hotel, because I usually only write a review if I plan on returning. We were looking for a hotel for a single night and this hotel had a great location and it also had a... More
