We are a family of five, and the hotel gave us a huge suite with three rooms with a king bed in one and sofa beds in the other two, plus two ensuites!! The rooms were a bit sparse in decoration, and I wonder whether this was still work in progress. Breakfast was a vast buffet that included some lovely... More

Very nice hotel with a reat location. Our rooms faucets and toilet spewed rusty water. You would let the water run, it would go from rusty to clear and back to rusty again. The front desk stated they knew of the problem and were in the process of fixing it. We were unable to take showers and had to brush... More

Dear Daniel, we apologize for the temporary inconvenient with the water. As you know, we informed all our guests that, due to an external problem of the water public company, would be necessary to let the water run, before to use it. There was no danger to use it, but the color was not inviting. We also made a discount... More

Close to the centre of town the hotel is a good base for exploring. No evening meals here but plenty of good restaurants in town. Breakfast a very good spread..on a continental basis. Staff pleasant and polite.

Pleasant sums up our stay pretty well. Friendly staff, a great breakfast (the blood orange juice is the only hotel orange juice I've had abroad that's not tasted horrible), and a cracking location. There is something of a grandeur around the beautiful building that is fading slightly. Our room had an issue with damp, the toilet seat wasn't on correctly... More

On arrival, despite having booked (and had confirmation) for a twin room were allocated a double. A change round with another guest took place. Beds are tiny and the room so hot it was akin to a sauna. The air con did not appear to work so we asked at reception and were informed it is only operational from the... More

Stayed there for 3 nights. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Cleanliness seemed fine. A little balcony overlooked a small alley. In one of the perpendicular roads there is some nightlife (meaning noise). but the sound insulation of the room was adequate and this wasnt a problem. Staff were very helpful at booking a guided tour of Etna or... More

Spent our first 2 nights here on a VJV tour of Sicily. The rooms were big, a good sized bed, very clean and also quiet. Breakfast was very good. Being very central there were many good restaurants closeby and many of the central sights were a short walk also

Stayed 3 nights at Il Principe Hotel - Catania, Sicily. Wonderful experience. Our room was large and beautiful. We stayed on the top floor with skylights in the bedroom and bathroom and a spectacular view over the rooftops. The staff was very accommodating. Complimentary breakfast each morning was superb. Perfect location. We would definitely stay here again.

I called this hotel in this way because it is actually composed of two buildings, one facing the other. It is a beautiful hotel in a very central part of the city. Anybody who knows the magnificent city knows that there are not many hotels in the main road; so, getting to Il Principe is not very straight-forward but there... More
