Hotel Etnea 316, was very central located, The family room was very big and clean, staff was very friendly, helpful and given us information. Marco, the best. Breakfast was good, Very near to the market and few metres away from the well known Piazza Elefante. Opposite of Etnea 316 there is also the Giardino Bellini.

We stayed here on our last night in Sicily and found a hidden gem! The outside has scaffolding covering it as part of the via Etnea renovations programme, but once through the big grey wooden doors and into the building it became a cooler, calmer place. Almost harking back in time it's quirky and fun. Hotel Etnea 316 oozes character... More

This was a very last-minute booking (we missed our ferry to Malta). They were very accommodating and so friendly! Our room was HUGE and very clean. The place is a little tough to find b/c at the moment there's construction on the street, and it's a bit of a hike up the stairs to the main lobby (but they helped... More

We spent 3 nights here in a family room. The room was simply huge. More than enough room for 2 parents and 2 teenage boys. Air conditioning worked well and bathroom was very nice. We didn't love the location…. the entry to the building was not very nice and a bit off-putting. The key area that needs to improve, though,... More

The location on the main street was excellent but the room, although very large, was quirky and disappointing. The beds were saggy and the room was dark and dreary with poor lighting even when we opened the wooden door to the glass balcony doors to try to get some light. The issue was that there was scaffolding for balcony repairs... More

Main advantages of this place are its location and staff, who were very assiduous, they carried luggage up and down flights of stairs for us, provided good local information etc. The guesthouse is very quiet, although right in the city centre. However, I agree with earlier reviewers who mention extremely poor lighting and uncomfortable beds - we paid €85 for... More

What a wonderful experience. If you ever visit Catania, stay at this hotel. Great location, clean, 24/7 service and very kind and open staff. We got a lot of awesome tips for food/places/etc to really get to know the city. The breakfast is also nice, Marco's wife even baked an apple cake.

We had room 3 which was huge, it had a massive bedroom with a passage to a sitting room and bathroom for 68 euros with breakfast for two. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, they were happy to give advice and recommendations. The hotel is a 10 euro taxi ride from the station, on the main shopping street leading... More
