An unusual hotel centrally situated. Although called a palace most rooms are fairly standard and ours was great for a 3 night stay. Quiet with views of the central courtyard and good modern toilet/shower room. Entrance is unusual at side of the square-you buzz yourself in and then take small lift (2 person) only to reception on 4th floor. Breakfast... More

We recently stayed at the Manganelli for one night and found this hotel quite comfortable and in a great location, a block east of Via Etna. A lift takes you to the 4th floor hotel of an old building. We had a very large double room, well lighted by 2 windows, king size bed, ample closet space. The bath was... More

Staying at the Manganelli Palace hotel, in the heart of Catania, was something of an odd experience – not unpleasant at all, just… well, odd. The place is set in what appears to be an apartment block; you take a lift (elevator) to Reception on the fourth floor, then you take another lift, an extraordinarily slow one, down a couple...

The hotel is certainly well located but it was not good value for the money I paid. The room I stayed in was certainly not "boutique" nor did I see frescoes anywhere. My room was the standard of a very cheap one star hotel. The breakfast was also very ordinary. There must be better value for money in a city... More

Its quite easy to be put off by the surroundings as you arrive but its totally wrong to blame the hotel for the condition of this part of the town. In this part of italy, people look after the inside of their properties but have little respect for the outsides and even less for other people's property. Ignore the grafitti... More

This is not 3* hotel! Even this is not a hotel. Dirty, old building at dirty street. Polite staff but it is not enough. I can not find words... I want to run away and crying. Palace?????? Never recommend to anybody!!!

This charming place well hidden on the fourth floor of an ancient building is nicely renovated as a romantic boutique hotel. The rooms have high ceilings and the internet works well. The location is good for those who wish to explore the city. All in all a rather solid 3.5 stars, but given that trip-advisor does not allow for precision... More

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2014 at Manganelli Palace and it was an excellent experience. The location is very close to the center of the city and the main street (via Etnea). It is an old building, not looking great from the outside but this changes instantlly when you walk in. The staff is very helpful and friendly.... More

My family and I stayed at the Manganelli Palace for several days when we were visiting Catania last week. We had one double room and one triple room. Both rooms were very large and very comfortable. The triple room was for our three teenagers, who were all very happy with the amount of room they had. The rates were extremely... More
