We stayed here for one night during a drive through Sicily and Italy for our honeymoon. It has a great location for exploring the sights in Catania and very comfortable and well decorated rooms. The breakfast had good choice and very fresh pastries. We were also able to park on site here for a fee, which was very handy for... More

The rooms are clean spacious and comfortable but sometimes internet access fails, (they were working on it at the time). There is good variety at breakfast and the quality of food is excellent. Staff are... More

We went on a week's organised tour, our first with a company. It was VJV and very well recommended. This hotel was the best of the week, very well appointed and pleasant people. Breakfast was good too and it was right in the centre. Only problem was that our lovely room overlooked the local pizzeria and tables outside made it... More

During our recent trip as a couple to Catania we stayed both in Il Principe and the UNA Hotel Palace. Il Principe was our preference-better value and better managed.Good bedroom with efficient Air Conditioning ,good location and convenient to restaurants ,and well supervised buffet breakfast. Plumbing problem in bathroom speedily rectified and overall hotel staff were helpful and efficient.Recommended.

Lovely hotel in the middle of Catania, within easy reach of all central tourist attractions, make sure you get the room you book, we eventually got our room with the balcony which was very entertaining,staff helpful with parking car and directions, nice roof terrace where you can see Etna in the distance. Driving in Catania not for the faint hearted... More

The guide book we used ranked this hotel much higher than we would. Some of the staff were unfriendly at our check in and unhelpful when we requested help printing our boarding passes. There were no robes or slippers and the cups in the bathroom were plastic. Worst of all was the noise at night. We upgraded to a suite... More
