This was my second stay in Catania so I decided to stay somewhere with a sea view. This hotel does have one but it's not exactly picturesque. I arrived late evening and getting to my room couldn't have been easier. Everyone of the reception staff was incredibly helpful throughout my stay. Thank-you. My room with a balcony was clean, tidy... More

We were with a group of 30 visiting Sicily. We planned everything in advance. The staff was very helpfull in arranging all logistics for our trip etcetera! Clean rooms with good beds. Nice breakfast buffet on the roof terrace with great views! Doubles in the front are better than the triples in the back, but all are good value. Hotel... More

Triple room booked and prepaid. Upon arrival no room for us. Sent us to two different places for the night. What we ended up with was a small double room with a cart for a 4 year old, even though we paid for a triple room! Staff did not go out of their way to be helpful. No restaurant as... More

The location of the hotel is very good - near the sea and not so far from the city center. The staff was very helpful. The room was large and very clean. The breakfast was rich and very good and was served at the roof terrace with sea view. There is an underground garage where to park the car.

Title says it all. Wonder who wrote all these stellar reviews. I've only just arrived, so it might not be fair to be so brutal but there were too many things wrong here not to say how disappointed I am. I wish I hadn't followed these reviews. Starting with #1) dirty bathroom - someone else's dental floss stuck to a... More

This is a nice hotel across from the water. The staff here were wonderful and most of them spoke English quite well. There are several restaurants close by. The included breakfast was good and included a variety of food. The room was large and clean. I believe the rooms on the ocean side were smaller, but, have a fantastic ocean... More

The hotel was difficult to find using my satnav but I called them and they 'guided' me in. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and the air-con was not noisy so slept well each night. I paid extra for a sea view room which was worth it and my room was on the 1st floor which... More
