Stayed here for 4 nights and it served the purpose. Great location, comfortable rooms, some with large bathrooms, and all the trimmings you'd expect from a hotel of this class. Something was missing though, and it's hard to put into words. In part it was the front desk staff - who acted like we were bothering them when ever we asked for the key. It wasn't even their surliness that made this place only average, but it was more their lackluster attitude. The breakfast felt a little the same, some days ok, other days a little wilted. On a positive note, they had a few parking spots out front, which in a city like Catania is prime real estate!
Would I stay here again? Not likely, but only because I prefer to stay in a place that makes me feel welcome. Other than that, I would have given this hotel 4 dots rather than 3.
