Spent a week here in August. Extremely good value for money. A little dated but really clean with bedsheets changed every other day. Corridors are warm but rooms all have AC. Wifi in rooms but better at reception. Pool area really nice with bar, snacks, music, towels and lifeguard. Hotel restaurant just ok with a few frozen ingredients. Pizza's are... More

I was booked to spend the night at Villa del Bosco design hotel. When I got there, they advised me of water damage and they had booked me a room in another hotel, nearby... although disappointed by the sudden change of plans, I was happy when I got to this other place, Garden Hotel. The hotel isn't new but is... More

A location close to freeways, a number of parking spaces, meeting rooms plus a restaurant onsite makes the Garden Hotel conducive for conferences and groups using it as a base. We were such a group and saw several others although the place is large enough that we didn't notice any kind of crowding. Our group stayed here for 4 nights,... More

Our hotel was far enough out of the center of town to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to get to the center within 20 minutes. We also went during off peak so the hotel was not that busy. There were loads of Restaurants in easy walking or driving distance. We really enjoyed our stay.

. . . it left a lot to be desired. First, the switches in the room for temperature control were completely broken--there was actually a hole in the wall, and even if I'd dared risk the electrical shock I might have gotten by putting my finger in to see if I could raise the temperature, I don't think it would...

It was pleasant stay with great service! I decided to take my dad for a weekend stay to Sicily.I think that for the money we paid it was a great stay. It took us a while to find the hotel as the hotel sign was not lit and our GPS was not functioning properly. but upon arrival we had zero... More

Wonderful place to stay! We have been staying there 6 nights and enjoyed it a lot! Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Lovely decoration in classic Italian style. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are very clean with big balcony. Exceptional location if you go to Sicily in summer - this hotel is located up at the foot of Etna Mountain,... More

We chose Garden Hotel as our base for 5 days while touring the easrern side of Sicily. The horel is 8 km from Catanya center and offers relaxation and tranquility. The "outskirt" location released us from the daily jams when staying in the city and we got on our way, easily and rapidly. The rooms are big and clean with... More

Nice place to stay, if you go for garden excursion or you have your own car. If not - you can't find anything in the neighbourhood. To walk on the slopes of the road is quite dangerous because the fast running cars and lack of trotoire. Nice clean place, friendly staff. No coffe / tea accessories in the room.
