The first time I stayed at this hotel located in the heart of Catania was in 2011. The staff were always well trained and attentive but the rooms were a bit flaky then with one room not having any window to speak of and another with some sort of strange theme. This has all changed!! Today, the hotel has been... More

Although the staff has changed the standard is still the same, they are very helpful and kind. We visit Catania every year in Feb and we never change the hotel as it is in the central position. The breakfast can be made better as the scrambled eggs are not that good. The bacon is to be seperated from the eggs... More

I stayed at Il Principe Hotel for the first time, to participate in the St. Agatha Festival. The physical properties of the hotel were excellent (cleanliness, attention to the room, breakfast service, etc.). They called a taxi when needed, with no hassles. But more importantly, the staff were attentive and friendly. Only one caution--- do not expect to do any... More

Fortunately we stayed just one night because our room was located in the front side of the hotel where at night takes place the "movida" of Catania. The noise was loud till late and the room was not enough isolated. Of course if you take advantage of the "movida" this is not a problem. Anyway the room was very nice... More

Really great place to stay, comfortable room in a fine building. The staff are very friendly and helpful, in particular Marta the receptionist. Car access is difficult and parking a nightmare! However, if you pay 15 € a night and hand over your keys the hotel will sort it for you - very we'll worth it if you have a... More
