Ok - so this hotel is in a fantastic location and the service is excellent. We stayed in room 102 on the first floor and the room again is outstanding. The only downside is that the room is located next to the restuarant and stunning roof terrace - which is amazing. However, if you fancy a quiet night and there is a party on in the restuarant - either join the party, go out, or have a sleepless night. So my advice would be to make sure you book a room as far from the restaurant as you can if you want the option of a quiet night in. Whilst the breakfast is very good the evening dining room food is not the best - so another reason to explore Catania by night.

Very nice hotel in a great location. Only a short walk from Via Etnea and Il Duomo. Friendly staff, comfortable, spacious rooms. Rooftop jacuzzi was perfect to relax in. Great selection at breakfast. Transfers were arranged for us on our return to the airport. Would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful hotel in location close to Duomo. Very helpful staff, especially Renato and Mansour who made transfer arrangements from hotel to Catania airport as well as arranging breakfast bags for our early departure. One of the best showers in all of Sicily.

Room Tip: We were in room 212, on courtyard side of hotel. Quiet, comfortable, and peaceful

Very good position and friendly hotel. Staff always helpful, a good breakfast and spotless room and en suite. Did struggle to adjust the air conditioning and wi-fi not working which was a little irritating. Lots of good restaurants within easy walking distance and even the bus station and railway station stations re walkable.... although rather up-hill on the way back!

Room Tip: Ask for one looking towards the sea on floor 2 or above!

Our room was very dark and gloomy. There was dark red carpet in the room that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. I'm sure at one time the rooms were very special, but now they look tired and dated. The lighting is simply not adequate. There is no way of getting the room to feel bright. The bathroom was very clean however. The view from our room was great - overlooking many historic buildings.

The breakfast was good. It was served on the terrace which also afforded great views. We also stopped by the terrace for a glass of wine before heading out for dinner. The sommelier was terrific and front desk staff were very helpful.

Location was good for exploring the city, but we walked from the bus station and there is a very long steep hill to drag your luggage up. A taxi might have been in order.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. Ask for a room without carpet.
