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

we stayed at Principe hotel the night of Christmas Day. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of Catania close to the main points of interest and walking distances to the main attractions. Hotel is charming, clean, spacious rooms with modern furnitures: we were travelling with two kids and they gave us two adjacent rooms. We drove to the... More

We were hesitant to stay here, but what a surprise...it is lovely. Central to the Piazza and the market area. HUGE room and bathroom. Unique in that the hotel is actually two buildings, across the street from each other, but you go through an passageway and don't notice the transition until you look out the window. Great breakfast buffet, but... More

Lovely clean and comfortable accommodations, best location, and excellent, excellent customer service. My husband, two dogs and I had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked an extra night! Breakfast is great.

This hotel was very good. The room size was good and our room had two balconies. The staff were friendly, and the hotel was clean. The breakfast was a little disappointing. The hot food looked like it had been there for ages (we did usually arrive for breakfast around 09:30am, so maybe our fault.). Also I would have liked to... More

Some of the rooms do not have great WI Fi connection and some rooms are dark because the windows are to the inside of the building but most of it is due to the structure of the beautiful building. Having said that, the staff are ready to accommodate any need is put to them and they are extremely flexible even... More

A well-refurbished aristocrat's house close to the main attractions of Catania (the latter in honesty not stretching to much more than four or five squares). It's also close to good eating options and a short cab ride to the station for trips out of Catania. Room had unexpected bonus of separate room as sitting area and rooms were quiet with... More
