The hotel is excellent! Clean, tidy and just really greatly decorated. The location is great, as it is just two corners away from the bus station and 10 mins walk from the city central. Oh and before I miss it!! The breakfast was NO1 - thank you for it!

I really don't like writing negative reviews but do not stay here. We were booked for two nights but ended up leaving after the first night and losing the money we paid for the second night. The hotel is located in a pretty scary area...very run down area of Catania. So much so that I was not comfortable venturing out... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on our visit in Catania. When we checked in, we met a very pleasant and efficient receptionist. Hevalso helped us to booke a guided tour to Etna the day after. Our room was HUGE and the bathroom was also huge. It was clean and comfortable. The hotel is close to bus and... More

We stayed few night in this hotel in april. Very friendly and polite staff! We loved the place! Clean and large room, very nice interior decoration, silence during the night, very close to the bus station and also close to the city centre.

Having two encounters with people trying to steal my wife's bag and being told to stay in the hotel by a local shopkeeper due to people with knives who may target tourists, I would strongly advise people to avoid this area.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night, arriving late in the evening and transferring to Taormina the following day. Positives: - Walking distance from Bus Station - Quiet - Clean Others have commented the hotel is in a dodgy area. We have travelled quite extensively including developing countries and I can say that at no time did we feel... More

The hotel is a good value for money, decent breakfast, nice staff, internet working. The city of Catania is not a safe one, though: my girlfriend had her hand bag snatched out by a man on a scooter as we walked from the hotel to the bus station in the morning, 9 am (3 min walk). Really shocking experience which... More

I would def stay at La Ville again! We actually booked this room on the way down from Palmero that day and we were very surprised. It was close to the train and bus station which worked well for us. It was a little confusing for us to find but after we found it, we were so happy. We checked... More

The hotel is smallish and gorgeous - high Sicilian vaulted ceilings, earth-tone colours, terrifically well maintained. The staff are helpful and will make you a cappuchino on request! Importantly, it is close to the major pedestrian mall (oh la la - the shops and restaurants!), old market, museum, and tourist buses. Sicily is full of friendly, easy-going people and one... More
