I only stayed in Catania for one night, but I wish that I stayed more simply to enjoy the hotel. The hotel was beautiful and fit in with the city (not too modern), if there were renovations, they stayed true to the culture of the area. It was in the central neighborhood. I cannot think of one complaint. The staff... More

Stayed for one night following a few days in Syracuse. A nice central position and easily walkable from the bus station ( although at the top of a fairly steep hill). All of the staff were excellent, pleasant and couldn't have been more helpful. A minor point but my e reader ran out of charge and the receptionist went over... More

We were part of a group that stayed in this hotel so we did not actually choose it but it was certainly a good choice. Lovely location - up a steep hill though - but very close to the main town. Very friendly and helpful staff on reception. Room was clean and more than adequate with lovely views on two... More

the Royal Hotel is a beautifully restored palazzo with all the modern comforts. it is situated on the corner of Via Crociferi, perhaps the most beautiful street in all Catania. The Staff at the Royal are friendly, helpful and professional. Our superior room boasted a lovely four poster bed. the bathroom was on the small size. breakfast was served in... More

Hotel Royal is the perfect place to be based if you want to explore Catania. It's in the historic heart, on one of the grandest (but quietest) old streets, Via Crociferi. Minutes away from the major sites. The staff were extremely friendly and always helpful, with excellent English. It was very good value for a four star hotel, though we... More

We had just got off a plane from New York when we arrived here, and arrived irritable and irritated at the high taxi fare from the airport to downtown. Two hours later, we were just speechless with appreciation. The hotel has an 18th century kind of splendidness in the public rooms. Our room also had a contemporary flair, with a... More

The hotel is on a hill in a quiet part of Catania, only a short walk from most of the sights of the city. The bedroom (on the 3rd floor) was large and had its own pleasant walled outside seating area with iron table and chairs. Some previous reviews have noted the rooms can be dark, and at night I...

We stayed here twice in September....the first time for four nights and the second for five nights. We used Catania as a base to explore eastern Sicily and Malta. Both rooms and bathrooms were very large and clean. The hotel is a short walk to all of the sights in the old town. We found the staff friendly and helpful.... More
