“Great spot near the night life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

Stayed on Halloween. 50 Eruos they speak fairly good internet signal as long as your at the desk. Morning Breakfast was good, more of a snack. Check out is 10am which I am not used too but could be everywhere for all I know. the showers! excellent temperature and nice water pressure as well. It was the best shower out of all the places I have stayed in Europe so far.

Room Tip: ask to check out the room first. some rooms will have a double bed and a single, while others have 2...

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is very cosy, in an old building, very nice and tasteful decorated. Big rooms, nice and friendly staff. The breakfast is not very rich, but is satisfying. It's right in the center, you have pubs and restaurants around, and it's a safe location.
We loved it and strongly recommend it.

The "palace" in its name is a bit of an exaggeration - it is a good old "pensione" !! Centrally located in a main square within walking distance of most sights. If you are a light sleeper, make sure to ask for room that does NOT overlook the street. Very high ceilings, impeccably clean rooms. Continental breakfast included. A good deal.

Stayed February 2011, traveled solo

On Line pictures misleading.Noisy area .Contatnt noise of people , cars,& bus depot.Line of garbage bins outside collected at midnight.45 minutes of banging.
Two floor walk up to get to the lobby.
No parking,but secure parking is available 4 blocks away.W e were afraid to walk in that area,looked like slums,so we parked on the street.
Checked in for at 9 P.M.before catching a plane in the morning.We checked out at 1 A.M.

What a great surprise Stesicorea Palace was. We got the bus in from Catania airport and we asked a local shop owner where it was, its easy to find ;right next door to McDonalds. Its very central, the only downside is there is a lot of stairs to carry your luggage up, but its a grand staircase. The rooms were very big with a small ensuite and the windows opened out onto the balcony so you could check out the night life which was quite entertaining. I would recommend Stesicorea to anyone who wants somewhere good and central to stay in Catania.

  • Liked — The great location and friendliness of the owners
  • Disliked — nothing really o
