The hotel (B&B) is located in the very centre, but the quality of rooms is very poor. the staff is extremely helpful but they need to invest more in maintenance. do not trust the add that your room has a balcony as balcony looks into the yard od 2 m2 which is very noisy as all apartments look into it,...

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.

Best location downtown in Catania, situated in an old fashion building. The rooms are cheap and it's perfect for young people, they guys at the hall are really nice and friendly. The overall rating for rooms and breakfast is good

The couple ot reception were always very friendly and approachable. Downside: rooms a bit noisy due to very central location. No breakfast included. Rooms and en suite bathroom a... More

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

The lady at the reception was very nice and helpful. However, the place is dirty and extremely noisy. In my room I had to endure the whole day and night a poisonous smell of public toilets coming from the en-suite bathroom. Pointing this out to the owner did not help to solve the issue. The bed cover has probably never... More
