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 in Catania, loved the old building and the staff was very friendly and helpful! Definitely coming back!! Perfect place for young couples and group of friends! Unfortunately WIFI did not work in the room, but everywhere else in the hotel.

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 hotel is very well located on the main shopping streets in Catania. Very near the mais tourist attractions in Catania. About 15 minutes walking from the train and bus stations. 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

Clean quality hotel with the feel of home. I was checking out early and the staff was very apologetic that I would not get breakfast, making it feel more homey. They went above and beyond to make sure that my short trip to Canania was a success, recommending restaurants and securing a spot on a tour.

Considering how great this hotel is, it's surprising that it doesn't have more reviews. I only came across it as an overflow hotel for Ivespri (run by the same people). The location absolutely cannot be beaten - within a two block radius is the old historic part of town, all of the best restaurants and bars, and the upmarket shopping... More
