We spent 3 days here through our trip and within 5 minutes of arriving here we knew this would be one of our favourite places. The room we had was enormous and the terrace where you could eat breakfast had a view over the tops of the surrounding buildings and beyond. The owner was fantastic in helping us with our car parking as the area to move around was limited. He also told us about a restaurant called Canni & Pisci which had some absolutely amazing food!!! When we return to Catania, we will definitely be staying here again!!

This is a very nice hotel located in center-city Catania. Rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Our room had French doors and beautiful views of the street below, as well as the tops of cathedrals just down the street near the Piazza. Hotel staff were very helpful with information as well as hauling our luggage up the stairs. Breakfast is very good and is served o the rooftop terrace, with beautiful views.

The staff were wonderful hosts during a two-night stay here.

The room was quite large with balconies that opened onto the side street as well as the main street. Decor was sparse, but to be honest with the center of Catania a 10-minute walk away the room was only used for sleeping.

The rooftop terrace was accessed across a narrow balcony running along the interior courtyard. Breakfast was standard fare, but the setting of looking out over the rooftops of Catania and watching the swallows flitting about the endless courtyards made it a wonderful experience.

There are no lifts; access to the hotel requires climbing four flights of stairs so those who have mobility issues will definitely have to give this hotel a miss.

The only other "room for improvement" would be the cappucino. Not the best.

Overall a good stay, made extra special by the two staff at the front desk who were both most gracious and helpful,

Room Tip: No lifts; access to hotel is via four flights of stairs.
