The hotel is located on the upper side of Catania, in a quiet area, at about 25mn by bus from the historical center, and 30mn from the airport by car through an easy road. The view on the Etna from the breakfast room terrace is impressive. Take a moment to sip an espresso while admiring the giant volcano dominating the roofs of the city in the fresh air of the morning. Too bad the dinner is served in the basement, in a room without any charm nor windows.. when the villa has so many beautiful salons decorated in the opulent Sicilian 19th century style. It could have been a nice stay if our bedroom were not so poorly isolated from the surrounding noises. It felt like our neighboors were taking their shower in front of our bed, and some of them woke up very early to catch their flight I suppose. I guess it should not be a problem with every room, however this is not acceptable in a 4 stars hotel. When we mentionned the issue to the front desk, they acted like they felt sorry for us but nothing in particular was offered to compensate the issue.
