As I am travelling solo, I decided to pick hotels that were centrally located. Checking the Hotel directions I noted they advised using a taxi to get from the central railway station to the hotel. This I did and what excellent advice - around €10. Arriving at the hotel was just such a surprise - clean, modern, bright but still...

We stayed at this hotel last week, and disagree strongly with Mark G's arrogant and insulting comments. The reception staff members were professional, competent, and helpful. The location is very convenient and our dinner at the restaurant was excellent. Only complaint is the heat in the room - difficult to turn down the heat sufficiently to cool the room for...

The location is excellent - right in midst of the main pedestrian street and in easy walking distance from practically all tourist sites and attractions. The rooms are a bit on the small side for this hotel category, while the bathroom design is old fashioned and not up to par with modern standards. Breakfast is plentiful, but quite monotonous. The...

The physical hotel was nice enough; 3.5 stars. Great location on a main street. The weakness was the front desk staff that I would characterize as young kids with no adult supervision. Brain dead is mean but accurate. They were simply incapable--of anything. Some of it was uniformly poor English language skills, but apparently they can't read Italian either because...

I had breakfast at the rooftop restaurant with my wife. It was all you can eat and AMAZING, super fresh cheeses and omelet in a country that typically doesn't do breakfast. Our server, Rosiella was soo good too. Super attentive and cheerful. The best server we have ever had.

The hotel is spacious with a nice terrass on the 7th floor allowing a beautiful view of Catana roofs and the Etnae of course. The room we had was European size but not small while the storage was ample ( though an extremely limited amount of hangers. ..). Beware that the heat setting (we went there in December) is on...

Nice place in one of the best streets of Catania. Very friendly staff and good rooms. Breakfast also pretty good. Only drawback would be the light switches, which seemed to be wired totally randomly, and the climate control. It was 27 degrees in the room at some point with the thermostat not responding to anything
