    Location was spot-on. Very central.

    The only thing that was really uncomfortable was the stifling heat in the common areas and also in room. We stayed at hotel in December and we had to leave the balcony door open in order to have a good night sleep.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The location is excellent and the staff were so helpful and obliging. The cleanliness both of the room and the common areas was extremely good - better than in a number of 5 star hotels around Europe i stayed in.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    I liked most the comfort of the room especialy the use of the air conditon,and the tideness of the beds.and next time i will be visiting Catania again I will book overethere.

    The location of the hotel was good, it is on the main street and near restaurants. The bus to the Airport is just outside the door and cost only 1euro, so dont bother with a taxi.

    The staff could have been more helpful. we went upstairs to the roof bar on our first night and were charged €8 each for a drink, there was a buffet set out, but none of the staff bothered to tell us that if we paid one euro extra we could have had the buffet included. The reception staff didnt seem to know much about the Mt Etna tours, they werent able to book one for us, yet when we rang the tour operator from our room, we were able to get it straight away. The lobby of the hotel was always very quiet, very few people around, a strange feeling.
