Good location for visiting Mt. Etna. Short walk to Nicolisi's many restaurants. Quiet location with on site and street parking. Friendly, very helpful reception staff. Basic hotel with clean but rather dark rooms. Breakfast good with plenty of coffee.

After renting a car at the Catania airport and enduring a comedy of frustrations in trying to make it out of Catania (we kept being sucked back in, it was like trying to swim away from a sinking ship) we finally made it to Nicolosi, where we found Hotel Alle Pendici Dell'Etna with ease. Love at first sight. It's a... More

This hotel is situated next to Mt Etna ideal for those planning to visit this attraction. The stuff is very friendly and helpful, parking is not a problem and the restaurants are all around just few minutes away. This Hotel is family run so just go at the reception, rooms are clean and equipped with TV,A/C, and private toilets.

On a previous visit in 2003 we visited Nicolosi and were expecting a trip to Mt Etna, but because of an overnight snowstorm we were not able to make the trip up the mountain. This time (End of September '13) we were able to make the trip up to Mt Etna and see this amazing attraction. Our hotel accommodations were... More

I had 3 days booked here and was looking forward to my stay. We checked in late afternoon, room was very clean and in the front which I like. We had a shared bathroom but I knew this on booking so I wasn't too fussed. We went for a walk into town and decided to see if our friends were... More

We've got a confirmation via Booking.com for this hotel but once we arrived we were explained in Italian that the room is not available and we can use an offer of an alternative place with shared bathroom and no air-conditioning instead! Having two small kids with us and barely speaking Italian we've faced a luxury of spending afternoon looking for... More

stayed at the hotel alle pendici for 2 nights in March 2013 in order to see Mt Etna close up. Nicolosi is a pleasant small town, 15 minutes drive from the main S Etna carpark. The hotel is small, comfortable and well maintained; the rooms, though not large, are fine, the breakfast is good, if not great, and the management... More

I wish I was better with names so I could mention them here, but we where greeted by I assume the owner, a very friendly elder gentleman. He helped us very well and when we came down after dropping our bags off, offered us coffee and a... More
