Liberty Hotel
Ranked #2 of 49 Hotels in Catania
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The Liberty was wonderful in so many ways but mostly because of the attentive staff. They genuinely seemed to care about how much we enjoyed Catania and the surrounding areas and all of their recommendations were spot on.
My only suggestion would be that they may need to change out the beds. We were actually six people in three separate rooms and all of us were in agreement that the beds were rock hard. So if that's your preference regarding sleeping conditions, this is your place!

Room Tip: Upstairs in the back are two suites with a connecting balcony. Very nice alternative.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and clean room. Hotel is small enough to offer personal attention whilst large enough to offer services. Built in the art-nouveau style and period so not modern but good quality. Good location - short walk to the centre yet away from the traffic/noise. As an experienced traveller, I'm happy to recommend.

We stayed at the Liberty Hotel for 3 nights over the busy Valentine's weekend. The hotel staff were exceptionally helpful and every restaurant they recommended was right on. We got the reduced rate (stayed 3 nights) with the continental breakfast included. It was a good selection of cereals, breads, buns, meats and cheeses as well as fruit and sweets. One must pay additional for eggs and hot entrees. Re the room we were disappointed with the suite as we saw others that had a better configuration. That is the only reason I am giving it a 4. (Try not to get room 207).

We picked this hotel because it had high ratings in trip advisor. We are not disappointed. All the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. Alitalia lost my baggage and staff helped to call the airport and retrieve its. I asked a lot of questions about the sites to visit and nearby towns. They were superb at a answering all off them. The beds are high quality, the bathroom is elegant, the lobby salons are comfortable. I would suggest they serve better teas than Liptons -- and they only offered white toast for breakfast with pastries but no high fiber bread. but these are small complaints...

Room Tip: We only saw one room.

The gentleman who checked us in was superb, accommodating my fractured Italian with grace, switching to English only when I had difficulty. He gave us a very warm welcome and all kinds of recommendations. Unfortunately we didn't see him again but the rest of the staff were good too and the place itself exactly what we wanted, comfortable and clean without being pretentious, well-located, characterful. Breakfast was good without being spectacular, coffee very decent. This would be our first choice for a return to Catania.

My husband and I made a return visit to Hotel Liberty in December. After a perfectly horrendous 32 hour trip due to late departures and misplaced luggage we arrived at Hotel Liberty about 9:30 p.m., exhausted but starving. The front desk reception was welcoming and helpful, suggesting a trattoria a couple of blocks away for a quick supper. The next morning we slept till 10:30, the end of the posted breakfast hour, but were waved into the dining room nonetheless.

We had pleasant chats and helpful advice with hotel reception staff throughout our 3 day stay. We would not consider a future trip to Catania without including a stay at Hotel Liberty.

Room Tip: All rooms at the Hotel Liberty are elegantly decorated. We chose a suite this trip and were charmed...

The culture shock of our flight from Rome with Alitalia, left us shaken, not stirred...but once we stepped into the Liberty, Valentina at the front desk renewed our faith in humanity.
The hotel is small...no nightclubs, no pool, no ballroom...just comfortable and attractively equipped rooms and common areas.
Wifi was free, if occasionally the thick walls made reception in our room come and go. Yet we enjoyed a very happy, quiet and peaceful stay. And we loved the uniquely attractive decor.
Yet if the Liberty is a jewel box, the staff are its treasures. Every single one we encountered was not only quite capable,but highly welcoming,warm and pleasant.
One of our best hotel stays in Europe, for that reason in particular.

Room Tip: The regular suites are quite comfortable. We stayed in the Armonia, which was on the front of the bu...
