Best Western Hotel Mediterraneo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is a very nice, well-placed hotel with outstanding staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Their restaurant recommendations were spot on and the excursion which they arranged to Mount Etna at sunset more than delivered on expectations. Our family room was spacious and spotless and the stroll into the heart of the city is a very pleasant one.

Dear ChantalDLondon, we are happy that our Hotel, our Staff, our recommendations and our partners all met your expectations, and maybe even a bit more than that.

We hope your pleasant experience will move you to visit Catania again in the near future and spend some more days in our Hotel.

It has a pretty decent location in a quiet neighborhood in Catania, yet close to many of the attractions.

The room sizes are good, the TV channel selection excellent (SKY cable channels) and everything is spotless.

The only relative fault I could find was the ho-hum breakfast, but it seems to be a general problem in mid-range hotels in Italy, I guess owners of such establishments tend to skimp on this particular cost.

Dear johnflorin, we thank you for your review that shows you appreciated our services so that, to quote your words, we met all your expectations.
We also appreciate your suggestions regarding breakfast, but we would like to reassure you and all other travellers that we are absolutely not cutting on the costs of breakfast. On the contrary, in the last years we have spent more money to offer more at breakfast, especially fresh typical products of Sicily, along with other breakfast items that international guests can appreciate. We know anyway that, as we don't have a kitchen, we can't fully satisfy people who would like to find cooked items for breakfast. But, if you will decide to come again and stay with us, we hope that next time you can appreciate our fresh sicilian pastry, our cakes, our cheese and coldcuts, our fresh fruit, our blood orange juice (that you can squeeze yourself in winter time) and the other items we serve every day.

We stayed three nights, it was very hot outside but AC was working perfectly. Rooms are clean and comfy, large bathroom and nice balcony. Very good breakfast and friendly staff. Good value for money and great location near bellini park.

Dear Ewa K, thank you for the words of appreciation you wrote regarding our services and the location of our Hotel.
From our Hotel you can actually see the Bellini Park (Villa Bellini) which is the central garden of Catania. The road of the Hotel is at the back entrance of the Garden and, if you enter it, you can reach with a pleasant walk the front exit which is on the main road of Catania, via Etnea. Your comment will certainly be helpful to other travellers to appreciate the central position of our Hotel.
We hope to host you soon again.

Hotel is located in an OK area and in walking distance of multiple interesting destinations.We (two females) felt we needed to be a bit more "on guard" when in the immediate area of the hotel as we walked, but were fine. The hotel room was good. Breakfast was good with plenty of food. Staff was fluent in English and helpful. Taxis were readily available from the hotel.

We've chosen the Mediterraneo as start & finish of our 2-weeks Sicila holidays. It provides clean & cool rooms of sufficient space (we had a 2 & a 3 beds room). Staff is very friendly and gives support where required. The hotel is app. 15' by foot away from the center, close to the (shopping stree) Via Etnea and therefore a good basis to explore Catania. The airport is app. 20' by car away. Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing.

Thank you "maria117" for reviewing our Hotel and we are happy to read that you found our rooms clean. We have 4 rooms in all the Hotel with a shower curtain in the bathroom to make them accessible to people on wheelchairs. You will certainly understand that in those rooms we had to remove any barrier that might limit access to people with reduced mobility. You probably slept in one of those rooms, as evidently all the others were fully booked.
As you correctly mentioned, we have no restaurant and therefore we have no cooked items for breakfast, but we offer a large variety of cheese, coldcuts, bread and cakes together with boiled eggs.
We hope you can soon spend another long weekend break at our Hotel.
