Needs to be restored to former grace

I booked a Non-smoking room, and upon entering the room assigned, was overwhelmed with tobacco smoke. The desk clerk reassigned a room without any problems. The second room smelled of mildew or a leak. Wallpaper was peeling at the seams, the view was of an apt. building across the street. The next night's room was much better, no odor, better view. Breakfast was self-serve, lot of fresh fruit, pastries, pots of coffee and hot water. Hotel has seen better days.

Flea market and high end stores are a short walk away. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk northwest of the train station.

Good value hotel

Central location and well sign posted when driving to find. Probably business hotel, rooms nicely decorated for Italy. Bar in lobby so quite open, breakfast OK. 15-20mins walk to old town but not difficult and worth it to see all piazzas. well priced for Italy. Parking in garage (was free for us but not sure it's always), but paid parking in front of hotel. Quite an impersonal hotel however. No pool, good lifts. Catania is a very busy city, mind you all the towns on Sicily are.

The BEST BREAKFAST BUFFET in Sicily

In a beautiful part of town. Plenty of shops and attractions. Centrally located for day trips to Mt. Etna, Syracuse, and Taormina by bus or train.

Not 5-star quality

The hotel was rather basic for a 5-star. Bad, almost sewage smell in the room. Had to ask twice for the shower to be repaired. On the other hand, pretty quiet, and decent if you can get a deep discount.
