This old palazzo has a great location for sightseeing in Catania, with all the interesting things at a comfortable walking distance. Our superior room was as though directly out of the baroque era with a gigantic bed and old beautiful furmiture, felt like a princess:) They have a great terrace with a bar & restaurant and a nice view over...

This hotel is perfectly situated in the city centre, just a few minutes walk from the Piazza del Duomo in Catania. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly - they made us feel very welcome. The room was absolutely spotless, with towels replaced everyday and, even after we had left the Do Not Disturb on for most... More

The staff were amazing!! We had trouble with different things, and they couldn't help us enough, calling our cousins to organise to meet them etc, very very helpful. The room was nice, small and we had 2 single beds, but was quiet and clean.

Firstly, anyone who has read earlier reviews will already know about the significant hill leading up to the hotel and shouldn't therefore book if that's going to cause a problem. For us, young, able bodied and eager to explore it wasn't an issue at all, in fact the hotel is in a superb location, our balcony overlooked the street with... More

Just read the previous two negative reviews and felt that I urgently needed to try to uphold the hotel's reputation with the wonderful experience my wife and I had during our week at the Hotel Royal! The first night we stayed in a wonderful room on the first floor with fantastically decorated ceilings, a large four poster bed with wooden... More

If you depend on internet for any reason, go anywhere BUT do not stay here! We travel the world with Mac and PC computers as well as IPhones. I have not encountered worse WIFI connectivity since Pakistan and there they have brown and black outs constantly. It is a shame because this hotel has good bones, interesting interior, a good...

We arrived at this hotel on our honeymoon, to be led to the smallest and dingiest room i had encountered in Sicily in 4 weeks. And 2 single beds. It is terribly dated and in need of some TLC. The shower didn't run properly and we had no hot water. The mini-fridge wasn't cold and stank like off cheese. The... More

We just returned from our trip to Catania. The Hotel Royal was a great place to stay. The location was great - walking distance to many places. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The rooftop restaurant was great. We ate dinner there one night. It was a little on the pricey side but our waiter, Eliot, was most helpful.... More
