        Very luxurious hotel, right at the centre of Catania. When we arrived at around 10:30pm they told us that the frigobar was free, and after a long drive and a mishap with the gps, that was very welcome indeed. And checkout is at 12:00 so you have plenty of time in the morning to do a 1 day trip to catania for some sightseeing and shopping too.

      • Couple

        Nice hotel with comfortable rooms. Free wifi and minibar is a bonus. Staff is generally very helpful and friendly. In particular, Santo has been very helpful and welcoming.

      • Group of friends

        the hotel is clean and nice, all the staffs are so friendly, my sister and I had a good time at there, in future if we go back to Catania will choose to stay in there again.

        Lovely hotel, nice room

        Noise from air conditioning plant which was located near our room. This started at 7am so no chance of a lie in.

      • Single
        6.6

        The night before I left the hotel I ordered a taxi for the next day at 6:30 h in order to got to the Catania airport. Well, next day instead a regular taxi with taximeter I got a ncc car (private taxi) and the price to the airport for 15 min drive and 5 km was 25 € !!!. It is clearly a "robbery" because with a regular taxi it would habe costed just 13 €. I find this action misserable and not fair at all. Definitely the hotel'staff must take much care of its clients and not of its taxi drivers / friends.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The staff were very helpful and friendly especially as we arrived late in the evening. The bed was amazingly comfortable. It was a little too early in the seaon to sit out for breakfast in the courtyard but it lookes lovely

        We drove past several times before noticing the descrete entrance. It would have been good to know this in advance (maybe a photo on the website?)

      • Single
        7.4

        The staff was very cooperative. The breakfast was very good. It is located quite centrally and it is easy to get around by foot. I was allowed an early check-in despite not making a request in advance and the hotel staff were very accommodative. The temperature in the room too was very comfortable.

        The Wifi was not working in my room for one full day when I checked and I had to go to the lobby area to use it. Though the front desk offered me two other rooms, it was not working in the whole of that wing. Subsequently, it was working for the rest of my stay.

      • Single
        6.2

        The decor and furnishing reflect that of an old world luxury hotel. Very classy.

        The beds were suprisingly not so comfortable, a bit hard and stiff ! Also bathrooms need a drain, so when you take a shower the water that leaks outside of the shower can go somewhere. Also I would definitely improve the appearance of the courtyard. The surrounding buildings are not very attractive so definitely, some tall Palm trees and a few more plants can help change and drastically add a lot to the ambience.

      • Couple
        6.6

        The hotel is nice, rooms are big, breakfast is good and varied for European breakfasts.

        The location is walking distance to everything interesting in Catania but there are a lot of sketchy areas around the hotel and as you walk on the way to the shopping street. The other downsides are that all rooms have very weak a/c systems so the rooms get very hot in the night and rooms have carpetting which causes lots of allergies...

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The staff were friendly and very helpful at all times

        The hotel is looking a little tired, but was obviously grand. Replenishment of items at the breakfast buffet could have been more efficiently carried out.

        Very helpful staff. Short walk to main going out area and central bus and rail station. Plenty to eat breakfast. Very clean hotel. Would stay again.

      • Couple
        9.6

        Not far from airport, good breakfast, convenience.

        Оld repair in number

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Very nice design, the stuff is friendly and speaks English, free Wi-Fi in the rooms, free non-alcoholic drinks in the refrigerator.

        The television was poor: only 3 channels but probably it was temporary situation.

      • Couple
        9.6

        Friendly staff with good English; excellent and rich breakfast; very nice and good looking hotel; marble bathroom; clean rooms; own garage with bell boy; parking nearby is possible; free minibar; walking distance to city center (10-15 min.); excellent price. the city catania is hard to handle for cardrivers, who are not used to the sicilian traffic (-rules).... but the hotel is not to blame for that;
