              Nice hotel in the center of Catania. Seconds walk from all the shops and tourist attractions. Food and service good. Location perfect.

              Don't bother trying to get to the beach, there hardly is any (at least we could not find it)

              Fantastic hotel, great staff.

              Never had a harder bed than this but lovely cool clean room.

            • Family with children

              Staff was the best I've seen in Sicily! Confortable and really well located.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              the service with a smile from most of the staff was much appreciated. very helpful ....excellent location......

              not having tea/coffee facilities available in the room

            • Family with children
              8.2

              my stay was only for 1 night but found hotel very good.staff very helpful,very clean and great location.surely would book again next time .thanks.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Location was spot-on. Very central.

              The only thing that was really uncomfortable was the stifling heat in the common areas and also in room. We stayed at hotel in December and we had to leave the balcony door open in order to have a good night sleep.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              The location is excellent and the staff were so helpful and obliging. The cleanliness both of the room and the common areas was extremely good - better than in a number of 5 star hotels around Europe i stayed in.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              I liked most the comfort of the room especialy the use of the air conditon,and the tideness of the beds.and next time i will be visiting Catania again I will book overethere.

            • Older travelers
              6.2

              The location of the hotel was good, it is on the main street and near restaurants. The bus to the Airport is just outside the door and cost only 1euro, so dont bother with a taxi.

              The staff could have been more helpful. we went upstairs to the roof bar on our first night and were charged €8 each for a drink, there was a buffet set out, but none of the staff bothered to tell us that if we paid one euro extra we could have had the buffet included. The reception staff didnt seem to know much about the Mt Etna tours, they werent able to book one for us, yet when we rang the tour operator from our room, we were able to get it straight away. The lobby of the hotel was always very quiet, very few people around, a strange feeling.

            • Couple
              7.4

              We were in honeymoon and receptionist upgrade us to a suit.Staff is very helpfull and friendliness. Location is center and walk distance to many places.

              Smell of the room, Ac is not working proparly. Internet is expensive.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              hotel was downtown, best for sightseeing and shopping

              the room was very narrow for 2 persons
