The hotel itself is situated on the second floor of the palace situated right in the heart of Catania. The central square Piazza Duomo is 100 meters around the corner. I was disappointed a little bit with the old-fashioned elevator which you are supposed to use to reach the lobby, but it was the only disappointment during my three-night stay.... More

I really liked my room(# 108). It's a reasonable size and attractively decorated. I saw smaller rooms as I walked along the hall. that I might not want to stay in. The breakfast was perfect, wifi worked well in my room and staff were very nice. Just remeber: always take the lift, the stairs don't take you to the hotel.

Great location, very nice and clean room with modern bathroom. Though our room has a hand-held shower only - not a huge deal, but was a bit annoying. Breakfast selection was enough for me, but my husband wished they had some egg dishes on the menu. We reserved a parking spot in the hotel's courtyard-definitely recommend if traveling by car,...

The Manganelli Palace is somehow in the middle of the city, but difficult to found, the outside looking dirty, rooms are o.k., but very small and the flyer lies about availability of WIFI which is definitively not available and the polite, but not very professional staff is not able to help you. Book ot for a holiday, but not if... More

We booked two standard double rooms but when we arrived the kind receptionist told us that one of the rooms had been upgraded to the suite, free of charge. Very pleasant surprise! The suite was very nice and spacious and overlooked the little piazza where the hotel was located. It did smell a bit funny though (perhaps because of the... More

Really very nice but don't think it's four star. It's a boutique hotel. Great position in the city centre. Breakfast basic and just about adequate. We booked half board and found the restaurant was five minutes walk from hotel. Waiter was po faced and it took a week for him to smile. Food was good if you we're careful what... More

It is reasonable 3 star property, basic but good. The hotel’s staff is the biggest asset of the hotel, all very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Room was large (superior triple) simply and comfortably furnished with a nice ceiling. The bathroom is in need of updating, however is functional. Our room faced the busy street but with closed balcony during the... More

Once you've rung the bell and navigated the old lift (standard lift in Sicily, we discovered in other places), the people are helpful and efficient. We booked the suite, and it's lovely, it feels like you've stepped back in time. The ornate ceiling is particularly lovely, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast has everything you need, but honestly,... More

The Manganelli Palace Hotel is a microcosm of the city of Catania itself ( bear with me). Sitting underneath the ever-present menace of Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano - which was erupting spectacularly by the time we flew home - Catania was written off in our guide book as not being worthy of note, and being the Sicilian capital...
