Very conveniently located in Catania but parking is definitely a challenge at best of times, although you can briefly stop right at the entrance to unload the luggage with a fatality member and then go and find a parking spot. Close to the shopping area and some historical places and nice restaurants. Some of the rooms have a very unusual... More

We stayed here as we wanted to be close to the city centre, which we were. However, it was a very poor standard of accommodation for the price.... £300 + for 2 nights! The room wasn't cleaned once during our stay, we had to ask for loo roll and clean towels once we'd run out. I dropped something under the... More

We stayed here for three nights last month. Its a beautiful hotel. Our room had a lovely high ceiling, huge bed and a Juliette balcony. The bathroom was good, huge shower which I love and a window!! Sounds very odd but its so rare in a hotel and feels much less claustrophobic! Breakfast was nice, everything you'd expect and it... More

Stayed here for 3 nights following a tour of Sicily. Very good location but unfortunately our room 123 was quite noisey as our bedroom window was right outside a nearby restaurant. Also the shower door didn't close as such so water went all over the floor. Having said that the bed was comfortable, clean and quite large. Breakfasts were pretty... More

We used il principe as a base for a weeks holiday. After initially being shocked by Catania with all of the rubbish we got into the Sicilian ways... The hotel itself is tucked away right in the centre and it an excellent location. Also the hotel offered an excellent service of locking our car away each evening as we were... More

Lovely accomodation. The hotel is perfectly placed at the bottom of "scalinata Alessi", in the heart of Catania. 1 minute walk from the gorgeous Via dei Crociferi and a couple of minutes walk from the Duomo. Comfy room and delicious breakfast. Friendly staff. Highly recommended!

We stated here for 2 nights as part of a tour. We found the hotel to be very clean and the staff polite and helpful. The hotel is well located within the town and there are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast was fine, exactly what you expect from a continental breakfast.
