    The hotel has clearly been very recently (as of May 2010) renovated in good modern taste. It is very well placed at the centre of the historic district of Catania. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. I wish I had been able to stay longer than the one night I had booked.

    Its not trivial to find.

    The hotel is perfect (in it's class) - starting from furniture to staff. Compliments to architectures, designers and project managers. They did realy good job.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel staff were incredibly friendly, professional and extremely helpful. They were a credit to the hotel! The location of the hotel was excellent - perfect for a city trip. Breakfast was very nice and hotel rooms were very clean, comfortable and spacious.

    We would have liked if the hotel had a more extended room service menu - but this isn't a major problem as the hotel is located near so many fab restaurants!

  • Older travelers

    A small, comfortable hotel with very helpful staff. Room was well-appointed with good air conditioning. This was our last night of a 16-day trip to Sicily so proximity to the airport was very useful. Didn't try the breakfast because we left too early in the morning!

    Very central location. Hotel was obviuosly renovated recently. All required amenities for a city-hotel. Internet was free and very good

    Very central location. Hotel was obviuosly renovated recently. All required amenities for a city-hotel. Parking is being taken care of by staff, which is an advantage in a highly congested area.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The Il Principe is a newly-built or completely renovated boutique hotel right within 2-3 blocks of two of Catania’s principal tourist attractions—the duomo and the fish market. The hotel is sleek and beautifully finished, modern rather than traditional. Our room, neither large nor small, was tastefully decorated, and the bath was well- appointed. Staff was polite and helpful (their recommended restaurant was so good we went twice). Breakfast is taken in an attractive setting with offerings of cold meats and cheese in addition to the usual tasty Italian pastries, fruit and juices,. Parking is complimentary, and you leave your car with the staff which is adept at moving it back and forth on the street. (Driving in Catania is not for the faint of heart.) The neighborhood is quiet, but many restaurants and shops lie close by, and the surrounding streets are a fascination to wander through. Taking together the location, the service, and the attractiveness and amenities of the hotel, we felt that we received good value for the money we spent.

  • Group of friends

    I enjoyed the location of the hotel.

    I did not like the fact that at the end of April there was no air condition, my room was hot. Also, if you have to have the window open it can be noisy at the front of the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    It was excellent. Housekeeping was top class. Minor repair carried out immediately. Location is excellent. There is an airport-bus stop three minutes walk away. There are good restaurants quite close (the fish market is nearby). The reception staff were outstanding for friendliness and helpfulness. Most of the surrounding area is pedestrianised. A really charming place to stay.

  • Older travelers

    The location to the city centre - walking distance to most things. Quite a few restaurants close by. The staff were very pleasant. Our room was in a great location to watch the New Year's Eve fireworks. Shower good, had force and nice and hot. Bed very comfortable - Breakfast quite good.

    The hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of city. Parking is available and it's free. The staff are nice and very helpful. Everything is high class. The room was very spacious with nice view over the city. Together with Liberty Hotel these are the top class hotel in Catania and the price is very accessible.
