Nothing to complain about: nothing to get excited about. Room size ok but small shower room had that been added during an upgrade look. Menu perfectly adequate, as was buffet breakfast. Staff helpful.
Driving the streets of Catania can be a real challenge, however, finding parking is even more challenging. This nice, clean hotel offers free parking! I️ found that very rare in Italy and a huge plus! The room was spacious and the cost was very reasonable. I️ would definitely stay here again!
Staff 7/10 Rooms 5/10 (quite old with moquette and bathroom with basic staff) Breakfast 6/10 Cleanest 7/10 Position 7/10 Parking 5/10 Value for money 6/10 Room should be reviewed to make them more modern and conformtable (see moquette, noising AC,....) Staff very nuce.
Very nice hotel, close to the city center (less than 10 minutes to walk). The breakfast is great, with fresh fruits, cookies, coffee, cereals, eggs, ham, honey, etc , the staff is very friendly and helpful. We could book tours directly from hotel. The rooms are big, with a nice view to the italian garden. The hotel has also an underground parking (for 10 cars).
The hotel was conveniently located to restaurants and sites. It had the amenities we were looking for - wifi, continental breakfast, centrally located, etc. There is parking; however, it is first come first serve - we did not have a problem during our visit, but each time we took the car out for a day trip out of the city it was always a nagging worry that we would not be able to park at the hotel. It was not clear if there were off street options available. Just FYI, the streets are very narrow and I would not recommend renting a large vehicle - parking is pretty tight - a lot of dinged cars on the road. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were clean and roomy.
Big room with big bed, air conditioning, safety deposit box, hairdryer, mini shampoo, mini bar with mineral water and juice complimentary every day, tv. Breakfast with a good choice, which you can sit outside if wanted, staff helpful, about 10 mins walk to bus station and train station 20 mins walk to very rocky beach or 40 min walk to sandy beach or you can take the D bus from centre. Beds changed every three days and towels daily if needed. Ten mins walk from centre, market on everday apart from Sun on till 1 everyday and 8 on Sat 7 min walk away. The only downside is the area around the hotel is not the best but a lot of Catania is the same. Staff all very helpful and pleasant.
The hotel has a lovely old charm, a beautiful courtyard and the rooms are cozy and have excellent A/C. I can't say anything about the price because we got our stay for free through our travel agency, but we think it's a very convenient option. Breakfast has lots of options for all sorts of tastes, rooms are quiet and staff is always helpful. One side note. Stick to the main avenues when going out or returning to the hotel. This applies to all of Catania though. The surrounding streets can be dark and lonely at night so make sure you blend in well with the locals and know your way around beforehand. That being said the restaurant seems to serve excellent lunches and dinners, and the area is also full of great choices of restaurants.
We stayed here for one night this summer. Catania is not our favorite spot in Sicily, but the hotel delivered very good service. The rooms were spacious enough and very clean. The staff were very helpful, and had no problem communicating in English. We did not have dinner at the hotel, but their breakfast was excellent. You could enjoy your meals in an open backyard that was very beautiful. The perfect spot in the city may be a bit closer to their main pedestrian zone. This hotel was close to one of the main streets nearby. In addition - the price level here was affordable compared to other hotels on the island.
It is a hotel which bears an old world charm. The hotel is in need of a big refurbishment but the rooms are clean, large and comfortable. The air conditioner works very well which is much needed in the summer. The bathroom is large and has vey good water pressure. An added bonus is a big breakfast spread and free parking in the hotel garage. The wifi connects easily and has a good speed. The reception staff is largely courteous, helpful and speak English. We would have liked help when parking our car as the entrance to the garage is narrow. They helped us pull the car out (without us requesting it) and that was nice. We would definitely come back as you get a lot for the price you pay.
It is 25-30 min to walk to Cathedral di Sant Agata where you will 2 fountains, one with a big elephant and the other one beside a beautiful building. We took a taxi from Catania airport and the ride ws 35 euro to this hotel, 2 people with luggages. I like the hotel a lot and I higly recommend it. They have a nice patio. You don't hear any noise from your neighbor unlike some hotels we have been. Room is big and it is facing the patio. The contents of their mini bar was free which was a bonus. Two bottled water and 2 softdrinks. Wifi works fast and we had 3 gadgets on. Breakfast was very good. Personnel were very helpful. If ever we go back to Sicily and need to stay in Catania, we will definitely go back here. We ordered a taxi through the reception to the train station. You could really walk maybe 10 - 12 min but because of our luggages and reduce the anxiety of the traffic, meaning how drivers drive here, we opted to take a cab to the bus station. We were on our way to Siracusa.
