We stayed here on our last night in Sicily. We arrived after a nightmare bus journey from Taormina-we were boiled alive. The staff were wonderful-consummate professionals.
I haven't given it five stars because I think breakfast lets it down (not unusual in Italy, I know). The tea-bags were stale and I really feel that serving artificial juice should be banned.
The rooms and common spaces are lovely and the staff go that extra mile for you.

Stayed one night in the middle of June based on reviews on TripAdvisor. The reviews were spot on. Hotel has beautiful common areas, a wonderful, helpful staff, and our room, a suite was spacious, comfortable, and gorgeous. Parking available in garage half a block away. Easy walk to all the important sights of Catania. Only regret is that we didn't stay more nights!

Room Tip: Had a corner suite with its own covered patio area. Would have loved to spend more time on the pati...

My gf and i were SO pleased with that staying. Iti s not overpriced for being a 4 stars, it's located in a quite area but at walking distance from the centre and, most af all, the quality of the rooms and the service are OVER THE TOP!
A special thanks to Francesca, who spoiled us every day, and made our staying become unforgettable. Make sure you speak to her when you get there, and tell her that Paula & Tiziano say hi! ;)

I was encouraged to stay at the Liberty Hotel for five nights because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.

The staff are some of the best I have encountered and were almost wholly responsible for making my stay so pleasant - as I did not find Catania that agreeable a city in itself - they really do go out of their way to be helpful and polite.

The hotel is close to Pza. Stesicoro so well located for access into Catania centre. It is an attractive building and the interior is well presented.

I was originally put in a single room which was not so nice: high ceilings but no window to speak of: only a window overlooking the courtyard was visible past a curtain leading to the bathroom area. When the a/c failed to shut down on my first night, and blew directly onto the bed, the staff were happy to move me without question to another room which was more spacious, at the top of the hotel - hotter but brighter and nicer all round.

The toiletries are of a poor standard and they only provide one bath towel. However the room was nicely appointed and the bathroom contains a good sized bath with shower attachment (and low water pressure). The plug did not hold in the sink. There is a constant hum of a generator - not great for a light sleeper. But the room is a good size and at least this one has a small window.

Breakfast is adequate but relatively unexciting. You have to pay extra if you want other items like eggs, which I think is a little unfair, and a film shown on a projector screen plays on in the background - not necessary perhaps.

I would certainly recommend this hotel to other travellers and if I found myself in Catania on another occasion I would definitely stay here again.

My room was a little dark, but the vaulted ceiling, with modern though tasteful handpainted Liberty-style ornaments, along with the bathroom mosaics, more than compensated for this. The staff was first-rate – the men at the front desk were impeccably polite and went out of their way to be helpful. And the location is fine, too: within, though at the edge of, the historic part of the city. I could have done without the movie projection in the breakfast room, which reminded me of the tourism advertisements one is subjected to on airplanes, only with more annoying music. But I would definitely return.

We stayed overnight as a stop over after our flight from London. We checked in around 10.00pm and the Manager was very helpful with our baggage and directions for somewhre to dine and car parking . the room was clean and spacious, bed was comfortable and the Hotel was quiet. The continental breakfast was quite adequate. The front desk staff understood English well.

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor , so luggage was not a problem
