“Fantastic Stay! Highly recommended!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

First time I rate a hotel that high, but my stay in Liberty Hotel was simply fantastic. Highly recommended!!! I stayed here one week ago, for 4 nights.

Hotel: The building as such is just gorgeous. It is a beautiful mansion from the belle epoque. Especially the bar / reception area is mind-blowing. So are the rooms. Everything is so Carefully and beautifully restored and well kept. Also, super neat and clean.

Staff: The staff is very attentive to their guests. Service is excellent and everybody speaks perfect English. Super friendly and helpful. Outstanding!!

Location: 10 minute walk from all happening places, still in a quite neighbour hood. A super market is just two corners away.

Breakfast: Great italian coffee, small but good selection of breakfast items, but still more on the average side. One point to consider: This hotel as we found out is often frequented by business travellers. Under this aspect, I wouldnt expect a huge buffet. Still, The lady taking care of the breakfast was very friendly, she provided fantastic service.

We stayed at the Liberty Hotel in early February 2013, in spite of having read some not very positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice and comfortable and the breakfast is plentiful and delicious. The hotel has nice sitting/reading rooms, terrace and feels warm. A very nice experience, close to everything.

I have traveled to Catania with my family during the New Year period and we have spent in this hotel 5 days in total. Great place! First of all - very friendly people working there, they are always ready and glad to help with every problem or question that you may have. When we just arrived we have to wait some minutes for our rooms to be prepared (we have arrived couple of hours before check-in time) and have received a complementary delicious coffee with small desserts.
It is possible to book tours of the island (incl. to Etna) from the hotel. For the dinner it is possible to book pizza (as well as other food) into the room - and they will be delivered from some restaurant nearby. Delicious and not very expensive.
Rooms are beautiful and clean, maybe a bit dark though (as well as the foyer) - but it didn't worsen our overall opinion. In rooms there's a satellite TV with many channels in several languages.
Location was good on average, close to the city centre - though the district nearby seemed to be a bit dark and charmless, but not dangerous.
Most of all we all liked amazingly friendly and helpful people working in the hotel. Would definitely stay there again!

We stayed 2 nights in the Liberty Hotel after flying back from the US. We were impressed from start to finish with both the physical facilities and the courtesy and attentiveness of the staff.

Our room on the 2nd floor included an elegant bedroom and a hall leading to a sitting room with a desk. The marble molding in the bathroom and the tile floors and showers create an sense of elegance. The trim in the rooms is artistic and detailed; indicative of a high quality early 20th century construction. The heater was housed in a varnished lattice trimmed box for subtlety of design. Since we were there on cold days the efficient heater and quiet operation kept the room serene and toasty.

Every detail, from the monagrammed sheets and hand towels, the bedroom slippers and the thick fluffy bath towels, makes you feel pampered. And the desk personell were over the top at every opportunity.I asked "What time does the bus leave?" And the clerk replied "I will print the schedule and have it for you when you return." And he did. How nice is that?

The breakfast was complete and they offered freshly squeezed "blood orange" juice, a Sicialian specialty. The Liberty exceeded our expectations and will be a part of our next trip to Catania. It is hard to beat.

A little shabby streets surround the hotel, but the staff welcome and helpfulness throughout the stay made it very easy. Wi-Fi only worked in the main reception area which was a little inconvenient if you are on business. If you are there for the sights, the hotel is in a good location, certainly within walking distance of the various sites. Receptionist gave me the name of several restaurants and I took him up on the Antico Marine, near the fish market, which was absolutely fab. All in all a good stay, in an old classic building with clean facilities. The reception staff made the difference to me. Breakfast was ok.

Our six-night stay at this hotel could not have been better. The staff at the hotel are very warm and welcoming - they also gave us great restaurant recommendations and public transport advice. The morning breakfast was good, and the server, who was always pleasant and efficient was what made it even better. Our room itself was clean and elegantly decorated in an classic Italian style. The Liberty is also perfectly situated for walking the city, or to go to the two bus stations for the many wonderful day-trips outside Catania. It is also close to the airport - about ten minutes by taxi. A special thanks to Francesca! Grazie mille!
6泊の滞在でしたが、どのスタッフもとても親切でいろいろな町の情報を教えてくれたり、市外への小旅行の旅程について調べてくれたりしました。クリスマスシーズンということもあり、館内のデコレーションがすべてクリスマスっぽく、非常に楽しめました。部屋は清潔で、バスルームのタイルデコがとても素敵です。リーズナブルで、ぜひまたお世話になりたいホテルです。夫婦や友達同士、カップルにおススメです。
