Overall this hotel is well located in the heart of the city, minutes away from the main food market where you can eat well and watch the hustle and bustle. Access to shops and main tourist attractions are not far either along with restaurants and a laundromat if you need! On the other hand, I wouldn’t say service is their number one priority. The breakfast options were the absolute worst I have seen in all the 3 weeks I’ve been in Italy. Our friends A.C wasn’t working well and they did nothing to fix it during this heat wave. Lastly, the “valet” is basically the hotel parking our car on the street in front. So we paid for what exactly?? No idea...

We had stayed here 4 years ago and really enjoyed it but this time the hotel appeared very tired. Some of the rooms are better than others and most needing a refurbishment. The check in and check out process was difficult because I had booked multiple rooms for our group. The hotel is very central and easy walking distance to main attractions, shops and restaurants.

My family stayed here for several days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a perfect location which was an easy walk to all restaurants, shops and sights. Rooms were well appointed and spacious (for Italy). My room had a stocked fridge, desk, air conditioning, safe, walk in shower, comfortable bed and wardrobe, Complimentary toiletries were also provided. Housekeeping was of a good standard and breakfast was satisfactory. The location is the best in Catania. The outstanding aspect of this hotel are the wonderful staff. They were friendly, professional and incredibly hospitable. My father required hospitalisation during his stay and the staff were so caring and went out of their way to help my mother. They were genuinely caring and offered assistance well above expectations. They were a wealth of information helping us with restaurants, beaches, hospitals, hairdressers and taxis. Thank you for a wonderful stay and providing outstanding service to my family.
