We pre-booked here for our first night's stay in Sicily, as our flight was not scheduled to arrive until late. We were on a fly-drive holiday and had not intended to spend any time in Catania other than the fiisrt night but since this hotel was so good, upon checking out the next morning we booked again for our last...

Stayed for just a night before travelling to Stromboli, wished we could of stayed longer. Lovely hotel right in the centre of town, within easy walking distance of all the highlights. Rooms were lovely and spacious with little balconies looking out onto the street. Breakfast was great with a good selection of food both hot and cold. We did the... More

Great hotel, very spacious rooms, excellent location. The hotel staff, many english speaking, were very friendly and helpful. They recommended a few incredible restaurants that were off the beaten path.

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.
