Easy check in on arrival. Great restaurant recommendation for our first night from the front desk. Hotel is really central in the city. Great location for visiting all parts of Catania. Minutes from the main squares with loads of restaurants within easy walking distance. Had a problem with water supply but the hotel moved our room with no fuss. Rooms very spacious and clean. Highly recommend getting the hotel to arrange airport transfers as price is on par with local taxis without the fuss.

I stayed with my boyfriend in September 2020, and found the hotel in a charming central area of Catania. Walking distance to everything you need. The room was comfortable and spacious, no complaints. I recommend emailing the hotel in advance to reserve their parking valet if you have a car*

Hotel located right in the centre of Catania, near the pedestrian and shopping area. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are charming but would some little retouch in the maintenance. The breakfast is rich and of high quality.

Great location, just a block from Plaza Duomo and 2 blocks from the fish market. Plus: nice, clean hotel. Poor internet (1-3 MBPS download speed - worked 95% off the time. I put this in the nice, knowing that other hotels in the area have worse). Front desk speaks english well. Great hospitality. Decent breakfast spread. Rooftop lounge (just chairs, tables, bathrooms, and a shower on the roof) where the view is amazing. Negatives: No coffee in the rooms. No roomservice. No washcloths (I understand though that this is an American thing). No irons or ironing board. They cleaned throughly but they used a very strong perfume/cleaning agent (if you have allergies this will wreck you). The good news is they have large windows where you can air the room out after a cleaning. If I visit again, I will definitely stay here.
