This Chain Of Locally-Owned Hotels Assures High Standards Are Met Through Its World-Wide Network. The Room, Staff, Food And Bar Service Will Not Disappoint The Well-Seasoned Traveler At This Sicilian Established Choice Either!
I stayed in this Hotel from 1st to 3rd November 2017 and found this hotel to be excellent. Its a very nice hotel and clean. Friendly stuff and nice rooms with 100% very good service. I recommend this hotel to everyone. Very good breakfast. Next time I visit Catania, I book in this hotel again. Thanks for all the stuff. Thanks for a very good service. Carmel Garcia from Malta.
Comfortable and clean room, friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast. Fully functional and spacious bathroom. Very good location close to Bellini Park, restaurants and a supermarket. The bright green LED in the emergency light could disturb your sleep. There was some noise from the construction site in the neighbourhood during the day. Luckily, we were away then. Selection of bread for breakfast was limited from time to time, but on a request the staff responded promptly.
nice hotel. a bot far from the center. not so nice neighborhood. good parking facility even if payable. breakfast needs imrovement in additional fresh vegetables, cut fruits, warm eggs and especially on sundays.
This hotel is a very nice hotel and the staff is very friendly the hotel is very clean and the service is excellent it is centrally located in the city and they have tours at the front desk can order and they come and pick you up at the front desk that is nice only complaint I have is they got it and prove their mattresses they're very hard they're like box springs not soft at all otherwise the place is perfect
Just spent a week here, nice clean hotel! Must mention ladies on reception, very pleasant & helpful! Also the guys at the bar/ restaurant! A special mention for the guy on the carpark, helped solve a difficult situation!👌🏻 Good location for the Hotel, only downside, area around Hotel is very rundown! Lots of graffiti, smelly bins & dog mess! Shame, as this is a lovely hotel, that the local services are so poor! Still recommend the Hotel! 👌🏻
For us, Hotel Mediterraneo was just perfect. We celebrated our 59th wedding anniversary here and the Hotel management arranged for us to have a celebration meal at the best fish restaurant in town just a stone's throw away. Santo Venti is the Room Division Manager, get to know him and your stay in Catania will be unforgettable - he is a mine of helpful information. The rooms are clean and well serviced. The breakfast is huge - don't forget to ask for your free Granita! If you are travelling from Italy get the Inter City Train from Roma to Syracuse. There are several stops on the way just get on at the nearest one to your location. We joined the train at Lamezia and the fare was 28 Euros each one way to Catania. The train actually goes onto the ferry boat from Villa San Giovanni to Messina - this is an experience not to be missed. It stops in Catania and Hotel Mediterraneo is 10 minutes in a taxi. We are going again next year for sure!
We had only one night at Hotel Mediterraneo. It was in a great location - an easy walk to the center of the city. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was professional as well as friendly. They made sure we had a taxi to the airport so that we were there in plenty enough time to catch our plane. When we visit Catania again, we will definitely stay in this hotel.
For us, location of this hotel in Catania was convenient: relatively easy access and exit from the town by car, yet walking distance to the centre. Moreover local supermarket and restaurants/ eateries were very close nearby. Parking was extra to the price, but probably worth it. Breakfast (€3 each extra per day), wifi, cable tv, tea making facilities were good. Staff were very pleasant and Alberto was particularly helpful. I would be happy to stay here again.
For a city centre hotel which is located just on the edge of the main area you would be hard pushed to beat the Mediterraneo.10 minutes walk to the centre of town, 2 minutes walk to a few excellent local restaurants, pleasant hotel staff coupled with possibly the quietest hotel room we have had in a long time. Let's start with our room located on the first floor (112), first impressions were that it's roomy and comfortable, the downside was the balcony area was surrounded by large railings with just a view of the air conditioning system, this wasn't important a generally the steel shutters were always down to keep the room cool and we were always out during the day. We arrived at around 1pm following an early flight so a siesta would have been ideal but the hotel was surrounded by building work and drilling was in operation. As we found out, the building work starts at 7:30am and stops for a couple of hours at 2pm but this in no way was an issue for us, as I said earlier the room was otherwise really quiet being end of corridor, we have experienced much worse from inconsiderate noisy guests elsewhere all hours of the day and night. Wi Fi did not work in our room but it is only a 30 second walk to use Wi Fi in the very comfortable lobby area. Don't let these few small issues put you off but it's best to give an honest opinion, the positives far outweigh the few negatives. Positives are the room was comfortable and had efficient quiet air con, the breakfasts are continental with a good range of choice and the hotel appears to be competitively priced with helpful staff. All in all I can only agree with previous good reviews, that's why we booked here and we were not disappointed.
