We stayed at the Santa Caterina for 10 nights after reviewing the previous comments on tripadvisor. We were so glad that we did, because we couldn't fault the staff and their helpfulness even if they didn't have a great understanding of English. The room was almost perfect and more than suitable for our stay. We would like to return to... More

We planned to stay at the Santa Caterina during our holiday on Sicily. Unfortunatelly our other arrangements did not allow us to enjoy their caretaking. But while organizing our trip we experienced outstanding service to plan our trip. Thank you Valeria!

I stayed at the Hotel Santa Caterina in Acireale for 5 days in May with a group of 26 people. I booked last January and the staff couldn't have done enough for me and the group. Valeria and Daniela were wonderful- efficient, organised and most of all extremely pleasant at all times. They looked after any bookings and requests and... More

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

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.
