My partner & I stayed here in November, 2012 for 2 nights. From the street, the hotel doesn't look like a hotel. In fact it is easy to walk by the door & not notice it. Inside a walk up some nondescript stairs to the 2nd floor ends in a plain door. The door is unlocked electronically by hotel staff answering a buzzer/intercom. Once inside, what a marvelous grand old home! Our room overlooked Via Etnea and retained the original decorative tile flooring and wonderful ceiling from the mid 1800s. Marco Parentignot, the manager, was most welcoming. In fact, he is a qualified tour guide. We hired him for 2 days at reasonable (& less than his competitors) cost to visit Mt Etna, Taormina, Siracusa and Ortigia. He also described fully the sites in Catania to which we could walk. The hotel was great value with light breakfast, cable TV & wifi included. We highly recommend it as well as Marco's tour services.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room - rooms at back are more quiet.

A 15 minute taxi ride from the airport brought us to the Hotel Etnea in Catania. We were given a very warm welcome and Marco made a real effort to ensure the children felt at home which they immediately did. We stayed in a very large, beautiful room full of history and character. The hotel is a short walk from the fish market and the other sights of Catania. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, particularly to families who are looking for somewhere a bit different but still safe and welcoming.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel & it was excellent value & a perfect location on the main shopping street & close to all attractions. The rooms are huge, with sitting areas & beautiful ceilings, all with air conditioning. Breakfast was included & the selection of fruit & fresh pastries was great. The staff were extremely helpful & the girl made almond milk for us each morning. The only negative was having to drag the heavy cases up to the reception on the first floor ... but luckily the pleasant staff were on hand to help.

This was a good budget option, conveniently located right on the bus line that serves Catania airport. This was by far the cheapest room we stayed in while in Sicily and pretty good value (we paid more than 4x as much in Taormina, unfortunately.)

The room at Etnea was slightly run down, but very clean and the beds were pristine and comfy, and the staff was very helpful! We decided to stay here again on our last night in Sicily since it was so conveniently located. The 24-hour check in was great considering our flight got it in at 11pm. Catania is definitely a lively city - we had no problem getting a great dinner on Sunday at midnight after checking in!!!

Room Tip: The room above Via Etnea is huge, and easily sleeps 4; though there are quieter rooms on the courtya...

I stayed in this small but very clean hotel for 3 nights
with my husband and 2 kids, The bedrooms are very large and our room for four persons had also a sitting room apart from a bathroom . The entrance of the hotel is terrible but inside is different and it is very central, from the balcony of your room youcan see Villa Bellini and walking distance from the market and the Diomo.The staff is very helpful and can even organise excursions for you at good prices. looking foward to visit again.

Very nice and comfortable hotel and room. Room was really big and clean with all the basic necessities. Perfect location and even though room was facing the street it was not noisy at all.

We look forward to go back
