The Stesicorea Palace is a fantastic hotel located centrally in Catania. The rooms were clean and very well maintained, while offering a traditionally Italian experience with the layout and architecture. The service was fantastic, Wifi speed was excellent, and the breakfasts were great.

We got very good deal in this hotel, including breakfast. It looks quite used and worn, but everything worked fine and we had no complaits. Even parking possibilities near the hotel were OK, considering it is town centre. The staff is very polite, helpful and friendly. You may be disturbed from sleep by the noises from outside, but less than... More

The hotel is in the city center of Catania. The location of the hotel is in a busy square, surrounded by many shops. The room was spacious, clean and nice. Staff was helpful. It was good value for our money.

**INTRODUCTION** It was a spontaneous decision to go on holiday and return to Catania after 6 years, so I found this hotel via an offer by Expedia. Initially, prior to arrive in Sicily, I had some concerns regarding the quality of service for reading some comments here but when I saw it with my own eyes I have to say... More

Don`t let the small entrance misguide you. This Hotel ist very clean, the staff is more than friendly and eager to help (they even printed out our Flight tickets). The Breakfast is in a small room, but its OK. The rooms could need a touchup, but are very clean, the A/C works fine and WiFi is quite fast. Stayed there... More

It's in between the train station and the plaza where the elephant statue and cathedral are. Easy to get to anywhere in the city from here. Windows in the rooms are really clean, almost transparent. The TV in my room didn't work. Water in the mini bar and breakfast are not included in the fee.

I arrived into Catania by train from Salerno on 5th August 2014, and checked into the Hotel Stesicorea. The location is great - right in the centre of town, and less than 2 kms from the train station. It is easily reached by buses from the station, which stop just across the road from the hotel, at Piazza Stesicoro. From... More

The staff at this hotel really goes the extra mile for their guests. The hotel is very basic and family run. There is a really cosy and familiar feeling in this hotel. I love the home made cake available at breakfast every morning. Great location in the centre and very easy to visit another cities nearby, such as Siracusa, Noto... More

3 star hotel in the center of Catania, good place to visit the town and Sicily. The 457 bus from aeroport stops in the front of the hotel. Near it's a mcd and 200 m away it's a supermarket. The Stesicorea plaza is crowded in the evening and a little dirty. From there, you can walk down to the main... More
