Booked this hotel at the last minute when we decided to leave our tour group and strike out on our own. I agree with the reviews about the poor location of this hotel. First, the hotel is hard to find. It's perched on a hill that has beautiful views, yes. But, and this is a big deal if you don't... More

santacaterinahtl, Responsabile reception at Santa Caterina Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Dianne, Thank you very much for your kind and detailed review. We may partially agree with your complains: our hotel is located in a particular position that gives our Guests the possibility to discover all the beauties of the Eastern Sicilian Coast and renting a car is probably advised. Just one clarification about the room size: the room you... More

Quite awful experience at this hotel: - bathrooms were dirty and filthy with black mold in the tub and corners - curtains dirty and room was dusty (under bed / table) and dirty pillows - pool is right next to the train tracks, so any relaxation would be ruined every 15 minutes - all staff members except one were very...

Was expecting this hotel to be far nearer the sea, it had beautiful views from the restaurant but the sea was inaccessible without a car. Also it sits in a slither of land between a railway line and a main road. The food was super however we ate both breakfast and evening meal here. The local town of Acireale is... More

My husband, son and I stayed there for a week. It was very convenient to go off in a car to see other parts of Sicily. The staff were incredibly friendly, the pool is nice. The only thing is that one of the major routes up the coast is on one side and the train goes by on the other... More

We spent our last night in Sicily in Acireale at Santa Caterina. After staying at B&Bs for a week, it was nice to have a traditional style hotel. The property is absolutely gorgeous. It's a modern property not far from the water, away from the business of Catania, but still a very short drive to Catania and the airport. Our... More

Spent three nights in October and were very happy with the choice and value for money. Sea view was spectacular, restaurant lively and fun (eat twice), breakfast more than sufficient, staff very helpful and friendly, rooms comfortable and quiet. Would stay here again if in the area, we wanted to be near Etna and Taormina, but also close for early... More

friendly personel, comfortable nice decorated rooms, excellent breakfast. What more can one wish? We stayed 5 nights in November. Acireale is good located to visit the rest of Sicily. The town itself is quiet and friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel and their restaurant. Our room was large and led out on to a grassy patio. Their breakfasts are quite extensive and the service is good. One thing to mention if you are driving there using a GPS it will take you their via the old town where the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July 14. We hired a car (would recommend this as we stayed in acireale which doesn't have much going on but is a great central location to get to other places by car) we got to the hotel and it was very sweet. Parking was a little scary though (up a steep hill)... More

Agree with other positive reviews of this hotel it is a great place. There are not many signs to direct you to the right place but well worth it once you find your way (if you are sat-nav-less). Rooms were a good size with amazing views out over the sea and a truly fantastic shower! Disappointed that the double rooms... More
