Great location and a professionally run hotel with a classic style in keeping with Italy.
Stayed two nights prior and then added 3 as part of a tour group, so five nights and all went to plan in accommodation and treatment. Everything was comfortable and pleasant staff, with the hotel just a short even walk to the main Duomo piazza. I don't think you could do much better.
I would have liked tea and coffee facilities but hopefully all of Europe will get on to this service eventually.
Breakfasts were a fantastic assortment and good coffee. The best.
Oh and on the last night return from my tour I was given a room at the back of the main hotel and this was smaller and not as nice. Initially I had a room in the connecting building across, via a walkway, and this building has lovely rooms. Pity about the last night.

A very good hotel just off via Etnea with spacious, clean room including the ensuite bathroom. The service at reception was very welcoming, informative and supportive. Breakfast was good consisting of both English and continental with especially fresh croissants. The only slight disappointment was a request for lactose free milk which was not seen to. Otherwise, a great weekend stay! I would recommend it and would stay again!

I just spent two nights at this hotel. It is located close walking distance to Piazza Duomo, restaurants and the shopping on Via Etna so that makes it a good location. It's a hundred meters or so off of the main path of traffic on Via Etna so it's a bit more quiet than being on the main road. The room was nice and the bed was pretty comfy. There was only one thing that was a small nuisance, the water temperature in the shower of my room (129) would fluctuate from warm to super hot and back to warm again, just be alert and ready to move out of the scalding water which could be a general water pressure issue. The staff was nice and the breakfast was good. Overall I would stay at this hotel again.

Room tip: There's really not a bad choice of rooms. It's a nice place.

We were nearly 30 persons at this central hotel in Catznia for the feast of St Agatha. The break fast was brilliant. The rooms were clean with all the facilities. The staff and the receptions were very helpful in all aspects.

My wife and I stayed at this property for 2 nights in late October prior to joining an Insight Vacations organized tour of Sicily.

We found the hotel to be totally adequate for our needs and very well located in order to walk to a number of attractions in Catania. The room was very spacious, clean and quiet. There was even a small balcony that overlooked over the street below. The breakfast wasn't anything special, but certainly enough to get our day started.

The staff was extremely helpful and special thanks to Francesca who was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

No complaints at all and absolutely no regrets about staying here.
