Excellent position, in the city Center. Easy access, beautiful view from the roof Restaurant. Rooms are well furnished, but unfortunately no LED TV. We had the sicilian breakfast on the roof top, magnificent view of the Etna and of Catania city center.

Wifi really should be part part of standard service these days, and therefore included in the price of stay; especially in a 4-star hotel. And the drinks from the mini bar, as well as on the rooftop terrace, are quite overpriced in our opinion. But apart from that: a great stay, a good first time (and certainly not the last...)... More

Very nice hotel and very helpful and friendly staff. We had a great room, sadly the air conditioning failed, but they did quickly find us another room to match which was appreciated. The restaurant on the roof is not cheap, from starter to main, each is around 20-24 Euro BUT the food is very good, something which, surprisingly, the local... More

This hotel offers a modern design in the guest rooms with an interesting style, not what you would expect in this city. The Front Desk staff were very helpful with information and advice on local attractions. The rooftop patio bar/restaurant has a good view of Etna and until it gets dark, I would recommend it for a drink and an... More

I was staying at Una Palace for 5 nights. The location is perfect as right in the middle of Via Etnea which is the main street for shops and sights. Breakfast was included and was good. All the pastries and naughty stuff you could imagine, Cereal, fruit (although not much fresh...), cheese, meats, Boiled eggs, fresh coffee etc. Definitely good... More

Stayed for seven nights in this hotel and enjoyed a very warm welcome and great service. The reception staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The rooftop bar is a fantastic place to get views of Etna and the 10 euro buffet including a drink was very good, although the plate could be a bit bigger to save so... More

This wonderful hotel is located right in the center of the shopping district. Every place we went to was within walking distance with many great restaurants close by. Staff members were all very helpful and friendly and most spoke English very fluently. The only fault we could say for the hotel was the shower drained very slowly, but that would... More

While our time here was very brief--one night, we would definitely stay here on future trips. Staff was outstanding and location could not have been more central. Parking was made easy (staff did it for us) and because of the recommendation of the staff, we ate at probably one of the best pizza restaurants ever, on Via San Filomena. Also,... More
