I highly recommend this restaurant for quality, price, service and location. Il Principe is in good repair and in a very pretty part of the city with many restaurants and cafes around it. Plenty of individuals and families were staying there but I think they host business conferences too, which means everything was in good working order--NOT a given even... More

Stayed for one night at start of trip to Sicily. Hotel is in a good location in centre of Catania. Room was very high standard - no view from the room but not a big deal. Hotel is on a lively little side street with few excellent restaurants right beside it. We arrived late and there was a good buzz... More

Overall, a pleasant hotel with an excellent location. The hotel is situated in the historical part of Catania in the city center. Excellent location indeed, close to great restaurants, especially the pizza place next door and best shopping street in Catania. Indeed a very clean hotel, with a great complimentary breakfast. Free wifi as well. Also a great thanks goes... More

We stayed at Il Principe for a three nights this June. The hotel is in the heart of Catania, walking distance to most of the sights. It is a €28 taxi ride from CTA airport, or you can take the Alibus (€4 I think) which will drop you off within a few minutes walk of the hotel. Nearby are most... More

Right in the heart of the city. Surrounded by many delicious restaurants and a stroll to the main square. Lovely welcoming hotel with a great breakfast. Stayed in deluxe room on top floor very clean and spacious. I would stay again.

We only stayed here for one night before we went to Taormina but we enjoyed our stay it was in a central location and the rooms were clean. The hotel looked nice and it was a great little stay for a day or two. It was a quick walk from the main bars and restaurants and the staff were friendly.

We spent one night here while travelling around Sicily. Reception staff were very professional. The room itself was excellent for the price. Spacious and comfortable and decorated with very interesting art. I enjoyed the jacuzzi bath after a long day travelling . The hotel had a roof top area which presented nice views of the city. Breakfast was excellent with... More

My wife and I stayed in Il Principe Hotel the day we arrive from Washington DC, which was a long travel day. From the first looks at the hotel it seems complicated, because it consists of two buildings across from one another, but they are adjoined by a tunnel running underneath the outside stairs. The check was fast and smooth... More

Hotel is clean and staff friendly. Breakfast was good although hot food was a little overcooked. A special mention for Marta on reception. We had a problem with our flight to Malta. She spent over an hour helping us to sort it out. She was great!

This hotel will provide a cosy and luxurious base for you to explore central Catania. It is minutes from the historical baroque Via Crociferi and from the main paizzas. Decor is modern and beautiful, staff very professional and breakfast first class. They were also very accommodating in giving us breakfast on our early arrival instead of on our last day... More
