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

My travel companion and I enjoyed our stay here and found its downtown location totally convenient for seeing the sights and finding places to eat. We were greeted warmly and offered a cappuccino while we waited for the room to be prepared. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice with a wide selection of eggs, cereal,...

It already started with the check-in: even though we found a legal parking spot right in front of the hotel, the receptionist tried very hard to sell the hotel parking to us - for a whooping price compared to the city parking fee. Still trying to check-in he took a rather long private call (yes, I might not look it,... More

Travelling from Australia, my husband and I stayed for 5 nights here and found the hotel of top quality. Room was spacious, nice bathroom, all thoroughly cleaned daily. Our room had two windows onto the street. It was noisy on weekend nights as expected given central location. Excellent private rooftop terrace with views across the city and Mt Etna. The... More

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

Hotel is very well located in the centre of Catania's tourist area, making it very accessible and close to many excellent tourist locations and restaurants. 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
