Having just returned from the Hotel Santa Caterina in Acireale I would like to make the following observations. The hotel is only a year old, very nicely decorated and extremely clean. The bedrooms are a reasonable size, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space with french doors onto a patio with wonderful views of the sea, the air conditioning was extremely effective and virtually silent The bathroom is excellent apart from the 'gimmicky' shower which was fine once you left the computer alone! The majority of the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was very little information about any of the hotel facilities in the room ie menu's, shower operation etc
Now the bad points: firstly location, sandwiched between a railway line at the back, next to the pool, and a busy motorway/A class road at the front unless you were in your room with the french doors (with excellent double glazing) shut the noise was intrusive, as was the fumes from the vehicles in busy times. Very hilly, not good for unfit people. You definitely need a car to get around but there is limited parking at this hotel. Achireale is noisy, lots of fumes from cars etc , and quite hilly in places. Breakfast at the hotel was abysmal, the worst I have ever been offered. Have had better from 2 & 3* hotels.
