When we arrived straight from the airport we were warmly welcomed by the wonderful staff (and the cooling air-con). When we entered our room it took our breath away... four-poster bed, beautiful high ceiling, great balcony view to the sea and loads of room!
Great breakfast, lovely terrace bar and sun terrace on the room for bathing or sitting in the jacuzzi (with a stunning view of the city). The location is perfect for making the most of Catania and there is the most beautiful street right on your doorstep!
The staff will make you feel at home and as amazing as the rooms are they are the highlight of the hotel! You couldn't ask for more. A brilliant place to stay that I can't recommend enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Royal Hotel is a four star hotel in the centre of Catania with 19 rooms. The rooms are positioned on three different levels. Each room is named after either an important Sicilian person or period of Sicilian history. The first floor is dedicated to Vincenzo Bellini. A world-renowned composer, born in Catania, and author of noted works like La Norma. The same Norma lends her name to our most beautiful suite. This suite boasts beautiful vaulted ceilings where, following a meticulous and complex restorative project, we were able to maintain the original frescoes, painted in the 18th century. The frescoes are not the only unique features of this suite, which could more accurately be called a royal apartment. It is almost 50m2 and has a fabulous bathroom, like something directly from the fabled Arabian Nights. The second floor is home to the rooms dedicated to Magna Grecia (Latin for "Greater Greece"): a very important period in the history of the city of Catania. The third floor is dedicated to Giovanni Verga. This author brought the name of Catania and of Sicily into the lives of many around the world with his historical novels, names that are kept alive today in names of the rooms of our hotel. All rooms are equipped with LCD monitor, WiFi, and a control panel for the electronic adjustment of lights, but most importantly they are very spacious. The Superior rooms boast either a splendid four-poster bed or a private terrace. One of the Superior rooms has a private access to the rooftop terrace with the possibility to book the exclusive use of the Solarium and the Jacuzzi. The Suites are particularly ample with separate, clearly defined living and sleeping quarters. The Suites also offer a relaxing shower with water massage. ... more less
