“Excellent hotel with extremely helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

I booked the hotel based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews, and wasn't disappointed - in fact it exceeded my expectations! The area wasn't that 'run down' at all, and an easy few minutes walk into the centre of Catania. We had a very warm welcome when arriving, including drawing sights of interest and restaurants on a map. We found that the attitude and friendliness of all the staff was really excellent, and went a long way to making our stay so special. The hotel itself is beautiful, with Art Deco style and antiques, and our room was large and very quiet, with excellent air conditioning. We found the breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice in cold meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurts and pastry - and the coffee was excellent! I would certainly stay here again, and have no problem recommending the Liberty Hotel.

We were in Catania for one night in order to catch our flight early the next morning. The hotel is
perfectly located for walking to the center of town to see the sights.
The Liberty is a beautiful hotel with old world elegance and modern conveniences. People working there are most helpful. We needed to leave the hotel an hour before they begin to serve breakfast. They were so kind to set up a beautiful small table, fine linen and all, in the gorgeous lobby so we could have something to eat befor our flight. So thoughtful. If you are in Catania
this is the very best place to stay.

Stayed two nights at Liberty and was very pleased by the friendly and helpful service. The location is great but seems a bit odd at your firts glance. The street is pretty rough but I felt completely safe and the old town and Dome Square is a pleasant 10 minutes walk away. The rooms are big and comfortable. Still a bit overpriced considering the average pricelevel on Sicily.

The rooms at Hotel Liberty are large and well laid out. It is easy to walk to nice restaurants and good shopping. And the staff and service we received was excellent. It was no trouble for them to arrange a small breakfast for us at 04:20, and the taxi was there on time to get us to the airport for an early flight. All of our requests were handled cheerfully and professionally.

Really nice hotel close to the city centre. We booked a large suite for 220 euro night with breakfast. Room was lovely and relly big. 2 rooms and lovely painted ceilings. Very quite. Staff were great and nothing was a problem. Would stay again.

We were very fortunate to end our two week tour to Sicily at this gem of a hotel. It well deserves its reputation. The room was beautifully decorated, and the concierge was exceptionally helpful. No wonder everyone we met at the hotel felt very lucky to be staying here. It did not have a restaurant, but if you want, they offer a pizza delivery. What a treat after a long day sightseeing to have our special table set up in a room all to ourselves.
