Katane Palace Hotel
Ranked #12 of 49 Hotels in Catania
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2009

We stayed at the Katane Palace a couple of weeks ago.
The outside of this hotel does not do justice to the beautiful decor you find inside.We made our way to reception and were greeted with a lovely smile and immediately we felt at home.
We were shown to our room and I can safely say that we were not disappointed, everything you could want and more.
I must say that the highlight of our stay was dinner at Il Cuciniere.
As it was a warm summer night we were seated in their beautiful "Italian"courtyard.We were greeted by our waiter, Christian who recommended we opt for the degustation menu` so we could try many different dishes.
To be honest I cannot remember all ten dishes but every single one was amazing.
My favorite would have to be the tuna crusted with pistachios, but it isn't fair to just choose one dish.The wine was carefully matched with our dishes and all the waiters were attentive but most of all you could tell they took a lot of pride in what they did.
This was one of these occasions were you wish you could dine like this for the rest of your days.I can't wait to go back but I am guessing it will not be anytime soon as New Zealand is a little too far :(
Thank you Katane Palace for our fantastic experience!!

You may be rethinking your decision as you drive up to the Katane Palace, but once you step through the front door you forget all of that. The front desk staff greeted us warmly and were very swift. The bags were taken out of our car and to our room almost before we got there. There is a very nice bar on the main floor with a good selection of wines, although in Sicily you can almost always safely go with the house wine, and things to snack on as you recover from your travels. The hotel restaurant was very good (we dined there on two evenings), dining in the courtyard gave us a sense of seclusion and serenity. We totally forgot the hectic city that was on the other side of the wall. The staff was very attentive and had good recommendations for wine pairings and deserts. The room was a good size with a spacious bathroom and good amenities. If you are going to be staying in Catania for any reason, this is the place to be.

Through all my travelling life this is one of the most pleasant hotel experences I have ever had. A beautiful hotel with a discreet comfort that is har to find these days. Very good restaurant with a very innovative chef, and above all: a staff with a personal attentiveness.

The Katane Palace Hotel is amazing! The rooms are clean, spacious, and very nice. The hotel has a large "open area" where you relax, read, or hang-out with friends. There is a small and friendly bar in the hotel. And the free breakfast buffet is wonderful! The best free breakfast i have ever seen.

I HIGHLY recommend the Katane Palace Hotel. It is much, much nicer than most of the hotels i have ever stayed in.

This hotel was excellent. We had a car and they provided valet service, which was a huge treat. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean and the bathroom was immaculate.

The location is great, it is just north of the main downtown area so within easy walking distance, but is just south of the Corso Italia, which is also a great area for walking with nice shops.

We had an early morning flight and the concierge was extremely helpful in coordinating our check out, parking our car in a convenient location and checking with the car rental at the airport. They also provided helpful restaurant suggestions.
