Great Hotel located close to shops, cafe's and restaurants. Hotel staff was great especially the bartender at the lobby bar. Made us laugh. and she made excellent cocktails! Could have stayed until breakfast drinking her "magic potions!" Love you ET.

Great location! Close to everything! A few blocks from the Opera house and shopping areas. The Hotel is comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was delicious, they had Sicilian cheeses and delicious pistacchio muffins. I highly recommend it.

Centrally situated hotel on a quiet side street. Rooms are large with full bathrooms. Bar open at night. Breakfast buffet was satisfactory - situated on the 5th floor, so rooms on the 4th floor are not recommended. Our room was on the 2nd floor however view was a brick wall (not a problem for us,as we were out most of... More

The hotel was located on a relatively quiet side street but in a central area of town near shops and restaurants. Rooms were nice but there was no air conditioning (receptionist said weather was a little nippy outside so only central heating was available). Given the room didn't have proper ventilation, we had to sleep with the windows open to... More

The Grand Hotel Federico II isn't actually grand but interestingly enough it is around the corner from the Grand Hotel which, according to the tour, was originally a palace and this hotel appears to be part of that original structure. The reservations were honored and the room was clean and large. Upon check in I requested an upper floor, specifically... More

Overall this was a pretty good place. Our room was quite large with a view overlooking the front of the hotel. It has a great location that seemed central to quite a bit of the city. We were able to take long walks without getting lost and enjoyed several meals only a block away. The staff were very helpful with... More

Formally a 4 stars, this place doesn t deserve more than 2. I stayed there for just 1 night, my company paid a corporate fare of 100eur, that is really too much for such a lousy place. The carpet in my room was old and smelly, the window was facing a wall but the worst was the noise from the... More

The hotel is located very centrally in a quiet steet. From here you can access by foot the city's must see spots, shops and restaurants. The room was large, clean and provided all the important facilities such as stable free wifi, TV and a mini bar. The breakfast options were good.
