“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

After a wonderful two week stay in Sicily and Italy, this was a beautiful hotel to stay for our last night. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly; the hotel is absolutely beautiful. Large rooms, large beautifully tiled bathroom and close to many sites. Sorry we were only there for one night as there is much to see in Catania. This was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed on our trip.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We had a pleasant 2 night stay in early June. Our room was beautiful with enormously high ceilings, giving a great sense of space, and an elegant decorative style. The plumbing was good quality although the shower was a bit of a squeeze. No room service but when we arrived late the first night they helpfully sorted a pizza delivery. The breakfast is the only downside, the food is quite average and they play a tacky promotional video on a beamer against the wall advertising day trips to Etna. Outside of that though we'd be happy to stay there again as the staff was helpful and friendly throughout.

We spent one night at the Liberty Hotel and it was very nice. Francesco and Salvo gave us excellent service. The room was lovely and the ambiance is historic and very warm. We missed breakfast because our flight was so early, but we had a cappuccino before heading out which was perfect. The hotel is in a great location, you can walk everywhere and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for the kind hospitality!

Stayed five nights in a suite in early June. Beautiful, spacious bedroom and sitting room. Hotel lounges elegant and comfortable, staff absolutely charming, helpful and efficient. Excellent breakfast.
Everything spotless, nothing too much trouble.

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the touristy areas and one result is that there are few tourists around in bars and restaurants and hence we found the Italians to be that bit friendlier and prices a bit lower than down the hill in the tourist areas.

Room Tip: Some suites have the sitting room down-stairs from the bedroom. You may or may not prefer this arr...

This was a delightful oasis of peace after the challenging driving conditions of Catania itself. Being Brits we thought it was us but the staff assured us they felt the same. We were also upgraded to a beautiful suite and given excellent tips on what to see and where to eat. No where was more than 15 mins walk away. We would strongly recommend the Museo Storico dello Sbarco in Sicilia 1943 - the story of WWII in Sicily good for kids and adults alike.

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and were upgraded to a beautiful suite. Staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. Breakie was plentiful ( heating a little too high in the dining room) Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!!

Stayed at this hotel for a short break. Very nice, quality hotel and the staff, especially Francesca, couldn't have been more helpful. Easy to walk around and got good recommendations for restaurants. our favourite was Il Mare.

Room Tip: Stay on first or second floor so you can open the window, otherwise the window opens directly on to...
