NH Catania Centro4.0 out of 5.0

Breakfast could be better as there were not fresh oranges to produce a freshly-squeezed orange juice (we are in sicily in december) but only pre-prepared juice. In addition the 'freshly' cutted oranges where quite old (there were blue spots on one my collegue took)
Great hotel and staff. The location was in walking distance to several sightseeing areas since we were there with work. The only set back would be the front desk would need to be able to make more change for their guests.
Not bad. The hotel’s facilities are reasonablely confortable and clean. The bed was broad and comfy. I hardly had contact with the staff except in the restaurant but all time I had it they beheaved politely. We had dinner in the restaurant once, the menu was very short but the food was nice and tasty. The breakfast buffet was also ok. Relatively closed to the Piazza Duomo the nearby area is calm and noiseless during the night.
Hotel was chosen by the company. Great location for most of the central attractions. Rooms where big enough, generally quiet (I've stayed there twice). Clean with a comfortable bed and large bathroom. WiFi is available, but I didn't use it. Staff very pleasant. A very basic, breakfast for those on the go very early (before 0600).
Good location, walking distance from the main sights. Easy to reach from the airport, the bus stops in front of it. Rooms are spacious and clean. Nice staff. A good choice if you are planning a vacation in Catania.
Although didn’t look like a 4* hotel and was a little far from center (15-30 min. walk), the rooms were large enough and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was poor: only 1 type of cheese, 3 types of meat, no vegetables (except diced tomatoes). The bar was tiny and the man serving there was overwhelmed, as I waited 20 min. for my drink. They have a private parking, which is a big plus.
Easy to reach from the airports by Alibus. 20 mins of walking to the city centre. The hotel is very clean, quiet large room. Wi-Fi works well, bed is very comfortable, bathroom is quite old but clean , the bathroom amenities are more than enough, Nice staffs.
This is a good location and the front desk staff were nice, although a bit overwhelmed with tour bus arrivals. The breakfast was nice and had a good selection. The room was clean and spacious. Nothing fancy, but a nice place.
My huband and I went to Sicily for a mini - honeymoon after our wedding. The first 9 days we spent in another part of the island in very basic, simple and cheap accommodation. For the last night we decided on a nicer, "fancy" hotel. After some online research we booked at NH Catania Centro - worst choice we could have made no doubt!! The information online (booking.com) was plain wrong. We selected NH based on two criteria: private parking for our rental car, and smoking room/rooftop terrace for our addiction. There is no terrace and there are no smoking room, the parking is a ridiculous five lots for the whole skyscraper hotel. Now annoyed by having paid so much additional money for these two reasons which were not available in reality, I approached the employee at the reception. Firstly I want to honestly apologise for how I was speaking to him - it stemed from the utter shock of how wrong the information could be and how much money we had spent on an hotel which offered nothing of what we had looked for (there were numerous much cheaper and much more central with terraces which would have worked just fine for us). I am really sorry for the tone I was speaking to him, but I stand by the words I said to him: "I know this is not your fault, all I am saying is to report that to whoever is responsible for your online presence!" Why was my tone so angry? Because he AT NO POINT in the conversation suggested any alternatives, help, apology, explaination or compassion. Instead he only answered my questions in an arrogant tone from the beginning until the end of the conversation, and when I suggested to him that he should just forward the complaint to the person in charge of that, he said yes but in a way that I was 100% sure he would not. I said thank you and bye and we turned around to go to our car to look for a parking lot somewhere else - and right before we got to the door, this employee seriously cursed us (in italian which I understand enough of). Next day at check out no major incidents, just the staff (two women) being as arrogant and rude as the man the night before. Seriously: there is absolutely no reason to choose this hotel.
I would class this more of a business hotel rather than a tourist hotel. The rooms were large and well laid out and it look nicer on the inside than outside which was very bland. The buffet breakfast was fine but the biggest flaw is that they have a large bar area to relax in but you had to go to reception to get service. So most of the time it was empty and felt a bit soulless. Good points it was only a short walk to see the sites of Catania and we had a good nights sleep.
