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

As has already been observed, this hotel is not really a 'palace' but it is adequate enough in comfort (though there are a lot of steps to be climbed!) What really makes this a great place in which to stay is it's good location, very friendly and helpful staff, and that it's good value for money. I would certainly come... More

I'd like to be able to give more stars for this hotel, but the rooms are very basic and could do with some TLC. They're perfectly liveable, and if you're out and about all day and not particularly fussy, this could well be the hotel for you. If you're of limited mobility, however, there are lots of stairs and no... More

The hotel is in the heart of Catania. Shops and restaurants just round the corner. Room was ok. Spacious and clean. Breakfast was ample but nothing special. Staff are very helpful. The only downside is that there is no lift.

A bit run down, a basic breakfast, but really helpful and friendly staff. Slightly noisy due to its location but fascinating to watch people from the balcony! Lots to do in the vicinity. Photos of the hotel were misleading...
