My jaw dropped as they showed me my room. It was very beautiful. Location is great too, plenty of stores, restaurants, and sites within walking distance. Very attentive staff, the refrigerator comes packed with goodies, and breakfast was excellent. Wonderful experience all around. Its worth it to let the valet park your car because parking is very difficult. Also, I... More

Very friendly staff. We'd booked a no-frills room that didn't include breakfast or wi-fi. We were given wi-fi anyway, and after there was a small problem with electricity, they gave us breakfast, as well. The location couldn't be better.

Highly recommend this charming and urbane hotel. Having stayed in a diverse selection of hotels throughout Sicily for the 2 weeks previous, the Il Principe was a very much appreciated "Big City" style hotel, with small town friendliness and welcoming staff. Bit tricky to find for parking, but aside from that, a great experience, with gorgeous room, fine breakfast and... More

Great city centre hotel. Very attractive boutique hotel in a very convenient location near to via etna and the duomo. Cars can access right to the door. We had a comfortable room and the good air con means you can keep the double glazed windows closed so street noise is not an issue. Very good staff, the concierge helped with... More

We were two families and had 2 lovely suites - one for a family of 3 and one for a family of 5. Reception staff were always very helpful. Location is also great, very central - round the corner from Via Etnea, very close to the bus and train station and surrounded by restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed for 4 nights at the start of a two week stay in Sicily. Can't fault this hotel. Great location and room. Great base to explore the City and surrounding areas such as Etna. We stayed room only but there were plenty of very good cafés and restaurants close by. Staff more than happy to help with queries and suggestions.

We spent a delightful week in Catania and our choice of the Il Principe made the experience. The hotel is located in the hurt of the City and allowed us to walk everywhere with ease. There are at least 50 restaurants within a 20 minute walk and plenty of shopping. What made our stay memorable besides the beauty of the... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife for two nights. The location was in the center of the city and very convenient. The room was clean and enough space for two of us. The Sicilian receptionist was friendly and supportive, and let us know the recommendable fish restaurants. The parking space was just in front of the hotel, and... More
