We needed a hotel that could accommodate our group on fairly short notice and it needed to be within a limited budget. This did not leave many options, and we were lucky to have found the Continental. It was close to the center but still quiet, and the staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. Stefano and family and Sebi went out of their way to help us and make us comfortable--was like visiting a family friend. The terrace with the gorgeous view of the city & Etna was the perfect place to unwind at day's end.
They don't have a restaurant within the hotel, but there is a wonderful one owned by their family and located right outside the garden.
My only complaint was the bathrooms: the showers were very small and not for the claustrophobic. I think all the good qualities more than made up for this though.
