              Everything was perfect. The room is beautiful and confortable. The staff is sympathic and very helpful. The breakfast is good with many choices. The location In the downtown of catania is excellent, near to the main monuments and attractions.

              The only thing could be improved for me is the choice in matter of tv stations for french speaking people. Many italians of course, cnn and bbc, but no french one or music channel.

              Our room was fantastic and we had access to a veranda. We were in a suite. The bathroom was huge and everything was clean!

              The hotel is very nice but Catania is not a place I would recommend any one to stay. It is a huge city (much like Paris) but dirty! There was grafitti everywhere! Very easy to get lost! The churches weren't even open to the public!

              The location, just in the heart of Catania, iw perfect! The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is excellent!

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Reception was extremely welcoming and friendly. Hotel was very well located for shopping and sight seeing. Very clean, quiet. Breakfast was excellent as well.

              A/C went off during the night and the room became very warm. The person left on the desk that evening did not speak english so it was difficult to convey what was the problem. He did however, visit our room and immediately understood. The air was re-set and a/c was restored in about an hour. The sofa bed my daughter was sleeping on was broken - 2 slots missing and very uncomfortable.

              This hotel has the best location! Check out the restaurant which is right next to it, just up the stairs. The staff is very helpful and kind. Furthermore, parking is super easy and for free. You just leave your car at the entrance and they park it for you.

              The staff was first class. Very nice. Especially simona.

              Nothing really. To me , a little expensive, but still ok . I would stay again.

              Excellent location. Excellent staff.

              Room (noise, small window) and old bathroom.

              7.8

              Friendly staff with good facilities. Very good location near the city centre and within walking distance of at least one very good restaurant.

              Vehicle access is quite limited.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Central location. Clean, modern hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful and speak good English.

              Breakfast a little disappointing for the English taste but perfectly adequate.

              10.0

              Everything was first rate.' The breakfast, the free internet connection, and help parking the car in a difficult urban location were all stand- outs and the best of any of the hotels on our 17 day tour of Sicily. Furthermore, we left about $700 worth of cash and items in the safe and closet and they were all secured and waiting for us when we returned two days later. Very trustworthy staff.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Location in the heart of the old city was excellent. When we had a problem with the electronic entry system to our room staff were very quick to respond.

              Wifi Internet not working.
