The Motta Residence Hotel is a wonderful hotel. It is probably one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at, for several reasons. First of which is that the hotel staff is amazingly friendly. They have gone so far as to help me learn Italian. The staff is always there when you need advice on places to eat or sites to see around Sicily. They have recommended several places in town and all of the places they recommended were great. Many of the staff members speak english which is a major plus, since not a lot of people in this small town speak english. The cleaning staff was great too, they came everyday to replace my towels and make the bed.
There has been a few minor problems throughout my stay, but they were brought up to the staff and the owner. The problems were fixed either that day or the next day. The owner of the hotel is a great man and is there everyday in the morning reading the paper and drinking a caffe. So if there are any issues you can bring them up to him personally. Other than the minor issues with the the internet and a couple burnt out lights, my room was great. The bed was great, I was always able to wake up well rested. The kitchenette was decently stocked, I had a juicer, a couple pots and pans and enough plates to serve a small family. The hotel also provides SKY which is similar to DirecTV in America. This was also a very nice amenity, since most of the programs on regular TV are in Italian. SKY offers an option where you can change the programs language to English. The took also had a balcony which overlooked the town of Motta Sant'Anastasia and Mt. Etna give you a beautiful view. The hotel's location was great because you are close to Catania and the airport but you're away from the traffic and loudness of the city.
My business trip to Sicily lasted just about 3 months and I stayed at this hotel for the entire duration of the trip. I know that one of the reasons my trip to Sicily was so wonderful, is because the staff made the hotel feel like home.
