My husband and I found this hotel and we couldn't be more pleased. The hotel feels like a home away from home. The hotel owner, Salvatore, is the nicest person you will meet and he treats you just like family. He brings me an espresso every afternoon. We didn't know how many days we needed to stay here since we are looking for an apartment in Catania and he let us stay until we found an apartment with no problem.
The hotel is VERY CLEAN. The maid, Estella, who works the hotel is very nice and welcoming who is an amazing cleaner! We saw her cleaning the windows everyday and she mops the floor everyday as well. The room always smells good.
The breakfast is good too. There are all types of Italian coffee as well as yogurt, eggs, croissants, cookies, and much more. There also offer juices, milk, and water. They have a nice room to eat the breakfast in that feels like a family room.
The rooms are very large as well with high ceilings. It is a typical Italian, historic building.
The location is IDEAL. Via Etnea is the main drag in downtown Catania and CLOSE TO EVERYTHING. You can walk everywhere.
If you stay at Rubens, I promise you will not be disappointed!!!More
