Perfectly located opposite the duomo

Posted Sep 16, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Location
Cons: Soundproofing. Move the taxi drivers. Pillow top on the mattresses and decent pillows please.
Location: Within walking distance of all main attractions.
Having read the previous reviews we were expecting the noise but not the taxi drivers who talked, or was it shouted all night under our window. DO NOT BOOK ROOM 4. Maybe room 7 or 8, take earplugs and maybe some sleeping tablets! The beds are like concrete, but that's not unusual for the Italian hotels we have encountered so far. Simone was very helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast, usual sweet pastry, cold coffee, disinterested staff, but hey who cares you're in Italy, great location for the small part of catania that you might want to walk around. Try the traditional fish in a cone, around the back of the fountain....

Great location, hotel has character

Posted Jul 3, 2015
This hotel is right in the centre of Catania and provides everything you need. Some money needs to be spent on repairs and there is no lift, but overall very good. A voucher is provided for a coffee and croissant breakfast on the piazza next to the hotel.

Very unpleasant

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Good location
Cons: Cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, amenities.
I had a very unpleasant stay at this hotel. The room was dingy, dirty, and dark with stains on the walls and mould in the bathroom as well as a strong smell of stale smoke despite being advertised as a non-smoking room. Many of the amenities advertised were not provided, including wifi and in-room safe. The room also overlooked an inside courtyard/back alley and there were strange knocking noises coming from this courtyard all night, making it very hard to sleep.

Ok

Not bad value for short stay location in Catania. Rooms are large but in need of a makeover. The area though is top notch right on the main Piazza of the city. If you need anything though you have to drag the info out of the staff, not really a 3 star more of a 2. No self serve laundries in Catania so make sure you do it beforehand.

Decent hotel close to main square

Posted May 23, 2014
Pros: staff, location
Cons: hot water, breakfast
All pretty fine, and staff very nice. BUT - the "full breakfast" offered was a voucher for one croissant and one coffee at a nearby cafe. Also hot water rather cold first thing in the morning, unless you ditch all your environmental concerns and let the shower run for ten minutes

dont expect more than a great location

Posted Jul 12, 2012 on Hotels
The location of this hotel could not be more convenient. It is right next to the main square.you can walk to all the sights, bus station, and restaurants. My room on the second floor was not terribly clean and the bed was a worn mattress on springs. The wifi does not work anywhere but the lobby.manager skeaks minimal English but had good information about public buses to MT.Etna and tried his best. It is also easy to grab a taxi as there is a taxi stand right in front. If you book through hotels.com be insistant on the included breakfast. They tried to tell me it wasn't included and I had a bit of an argument. You only get a coupon for a croissant and coffee around the corner but it is included.
