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.

We came with a guided tour, so distance from city center was not an issue. We were on a half board plan for 4 nights. Reading some of the other reviewers prior to my arrival, somewhat worried me. Remarks about noise from the pool and from adjacent rooms, remarks about poor meals, old furnitute, etc. I did not encounter these... More

The garden of the hotel is in fact an extensive mainly paved area around a large,clean pool with large palms and banana plants etc adding a tropical feel. Plenty of space and sunbeds. Also three large car parking areas. However, the actual hotel is very much a business hotel whose guests are fed in one of the most souless dining... More

This is a review of two halves. There were some very good points about the hotel, but a few downsides as well. We stayed for four nights in all, taking day trips in the car each day. On the positive, we found the hotel location outside of the city to be convenient for us. It was close to the motorway... More
