I stayed at this hotel with my wife for two nights. The location was in the center of the city and very convenient. The room was clean and enough space for two of us. The Sicilian receptionist was friendly and supportive, and let us know the recommendable fish restaurants. The parking space was just in front of the hotel, and... More

All the ingredients were there, but they didn't seem to hang together as well as they could. The hotel is hidden away in the cathedral area, but is quiet,which is a plus. Our twin room was adequate and the bathroom good (except that the wash basin lacked a plug - a bit third-world,that!). WiFi was slow and lacked useful bandwidth,... More

After a recent stay at il Principe, I received an email from Mr Marco De Pinto, Direttore of the hotel, advising that my wallet had been found in our hotel room. Mr De Pinto was terrific - he made all the arrangements for the reimbursement of cash and the return of the wallet, including credit cards and driving license. And... More

My husband and I stayed here in August 2011 for our honeymoon and fell in love with Catania so we decided to go back July 2014. We stayed with Il Principe on both occasions and can honestly say they were exceptional! The hotel is situated in the city centre and is walking distance from the main shopping street (Via Etnea)...

This hotel was truly one of the most beautiful I'd ever stayed in! Staff are very warm and friendly, and location-wise it is great. Our 4th-floor room was spectacular!! Would love to come again some other time :)

Everything was perfect except Marta the receptionist who was very abrupt and sarcastically smiling - one one occasion even laughed at my pronounciation in italian... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as a stop over before heading for the south coast. The hotel is in a great location in the centre and in walking distance to most places. The room was very well presented, clean modern looked as if it had been recently redecorated. The beds were comfortable for a good nights sleep.... More

Nice hotel, reasonably priced and a great location to explore old city centre of Catania. Rooms are more than adequate, toiletries provided and free fast wifi. Building itself is the nicest one in the area and certainly our third floor room was quiet. We were very happy with hotel which offered good value for money. If undecided - don't hesitate!
