This is a wonderful place to stay, full of history, art and architecture. Breakfast on the outside terrace overlooking busy Catania is a great way to start the day. The fish market is two streets away with some amazing restaurants. Giara and her colleagues will give great recommendations about where to eat. They will also book airport transfers, and excursions eg. Etna. They clearly love the hotel and their enthusiasm comes across very well. They made us feel very welcome, which is not so common in modern hotels. We will certainly stay here on our next visit.

This hotel is truly stunning. Each floor has a different concept and is filled with unique art. We were upgraded to the Bellini suite room which was a lovely surprise. It was a beautiful and spacious room, filled with light, and even had a grand piano! Breakfast was delicious and served on the terrace overlooking the square below. The location really could not have been better, it is right in the center of Catania. The staff were exceptional and went above and beyond for us helping us to organise transfers and tours of Etna. They are all extremely friendly and attentive and really made our trip.I can't fault this boutique hotel!

It's difficult to come up with the superlatives to describe this hotel - but I'll try! Wonderful design with various different styles of room - all look fab. The look and feel of the hotel is just brilliant. Ours had the biggest chandelier I've ever seen, right over our bed! Great breakfast, freshly made coffee and highly attentive staff. Hotel is in a fantastic location for exploring this beautiful and atmospheric city on foot, so much to see. Highly recommend taking an Etna trip, the Sicily invasion museum is worth checking out and Siracusa/Ortigia is an easy and interesting train ride away. Great local bar 50m away called "BarnOut" - visit for the decor alone! All-in-all, we could not have had a better break......... the title of the review sums it up!

Dear Carlos, thanks a lot to share your opinion about us, we really appreciate it . Each Art room tells a particular story and when you sleep inside it , you can feel the sensation like to be part of the story because everything you see here at Asmundo Di Gisira is perfectly studied in each detail and especially if we talk about our rooms, they remind all the legends and our Sicilian history . The palace is located just on the heart of the historical city centre, so you can see and enjoy what the city offers without problems just leaving the car and going only by walking. We hope to see you again soon for your next journey in Catania. Regards from all the staff.

Wow what a amazing place this is! When opening the huge front door you are entering into a former palazzo with great art everywhere in and - even outside - the building. The staff is excellent, fast, efficient and very kind. We were staying in the junior suite on the upper floor. The room is big but a part of it has a very low ceiling which you can hardly use, although it looks fabulous. The breakfast was outstanding! The location could not be better, right next to the famous fish market. I would absolutely recommend this boutique hotel.
