Ares Hotel was a perfect jumping off place for our trip around Sicily. Very easy to get to Mount Etna the next day. The staff was very helpful. Nice dinner at the hotel restaurant.

Ares hotelPosted Sep 22, 2013
Clean, nice people, but bed was terribly pumping, and the room smelled. Breakfast was good with perfect service. The hotel is quite hard to find without GPS even if it is closed to the highway.

Great HotelPosted Mar 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
While you do need a car as location is several km from Catania, view of Mt Etna from dining room was fantastic. WiFi codes don't work but they let me check my email with their computer. Staff were great, breakfast was plentiful, and the furnishings throughout the hotel were beautiful. We liked it so much we booked 2 more nights. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent hotel for a very reasonable ratePosted Jun 11, 2012
Pros: Great facilities. Clean, well kept. Courteous staff. I don't usually eat at hotel restaurants. This one was a good surprise.
Cons: I would have liked wifi to be faster, but unlimited Tim Sim card worked well in that location. So I had access to the Internet from inside my room.
Location: Good location for car travel.
Excellent hotel for travelers that come to town by car. Free parking in hotel. Close to main highway giving easy access to nearby towns like Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, etc. Free Internet in lounge is not that fast but works well enough for email and web surfing. Good restaurant for dinner for a very convenient fixed price per person for hotel guests. Complete complimentary breakfast. Large well decorated lounge with possibility of use of private meeting rooms.Staff has always been very helpful giving suggestions about trips and conveniences such as where can I get good fruit. Order in pizza, etc. Hotel room was clean and comfortable. Beds are firm. Shower is a little bit tight but has an abundant flow of hot water. Quiet area without intrusive traffic sound. I came to stay three days and ended up staying in the hotel for six days.

Perfect for Etna!Posted May 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel is the perfect location if you are just in the Catania region to climb Etna and have hired a car. It is on the outskirts of Catania in a suburban area (which is reminiscent of Australian suburbs!) and is right near the main road to Etna. A few minutes from Catania for dinner and right at the foothills of Etna. The breakfast room is also situated with a beautiful view of Etna and the beautiful surrounding countryside. The double room we booked was quite basic, but had everything needed. The en-suite bathroom likewise. All in all though would definitely stay here again.
