The location is brilliant -quiet yet very central. We had the suite which was quirky with its painted ceiling and spotless and so spacious. This is a no frills budget hotel but was absolutely perfect for our three night stay and we would certainly recommend it. Each night we ate an excellent meal at a place recommended by our host...

The guesthouse is very well placed, the room was clean, nice and comfortable and the host was very knowledgeable and kind. The "old" living room is amazing! Just onz thing I disn't like: breakfast room and the choice

If I could I would give it 10stars. Very easy to get to once you learn how Italian streets worked. Near the hop on hop off bus so being a tourist was easy. The host Carlo was very nice and extremely helpful from start to finish. We asked him about Etna tours and recommended a company. He even called and... More

the hotel is in the heart of Catania, right near the Via Etnea, between vila Bellin and University Square. Equal distance. 15-20 minutes walking from the central bus station, a lot of restaurant and stores closer, nice monuments...the hotel is located at 1st and 2nd floor of an old nobiliar building. very impressive. the rooms are very clean and warm....

We arrived late from Nicolosi and Carlos, the manager, was up waiting for us. He was really helpful -- helped us to settle in etc. The rooms are regal and right smack in the heart of Catania's old city centre. It's surreal. We'll definitely come back.

The Gattopardo is almost on the main Via Etnea and five minutes walk from the main historical sights. It describes itself as 'not a hotel' and offers no food or facilities beyond a room (most en suite). But what rooms! We had a four poster bed, the lobby was decorated with antiques and the room adjoining reception could have come... More
