Catania in November

The NH Catania is a good choice for a stay in Catania. As other reviewers have noted, it's in a quieter part of the city, right by bus stops for the airport and city buses. You can walk to the historic center or train/bus station in about 20-25 minutes. It's a newer hotel, and room/facilities are fine. The hotel staff were all friendly enough. As others reported, the breakfast does emphasize baked goods - but they're quality baked goods. The restaurant is OK - there aren't too many other eating options close by.

Good location in Catania

Pros: The room was very clean and quiet. The range of and quality of food at breakfast was excellent. Staff helped with booking a taxi for the airport.
Cons: Checking with guests on arrival if they would like a smoking room - really in these days it would be better if all hotels were non-smoking.
Location: Easy walking distance to Catania centre, shops and historic area.
Generally a good experience, with the main downside being that I was given a smoking room even though I am a non smoker so there was a slight smell of smoke when first entering the room. The wifi worked in the room on the first day but then stopped working although it worked in reception and the restaurant.

Very helpful and friendly staff

Pros: Comfortable, friendly and excellent food.
Location: Within walking distance to restaurants, Cathedral, Roman amphitheatre etc...
Stayed with my son for 5 days. Very friendly and helpful staff (reception, restaurant and cleaners). The breakfasts were excellent, so much choice. We ate in a couple of times in the evening and again the food was excellent. We had deluxe single rooms which were comfortable especially the bed, quiet and clean. Our rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard. The Hotel is well situated in Catania. The only negative thing was the limited parking at the hotel. However, I only had to park on the street for one night. If you have to do the same, then make sure it's a 'Blue Bay', it was cheap compared to the UK.

Things to improve

Posted Nov 3, 2015
Cons: Kettles in rooms for english cuppas.
Well situated for airport transport via the Alibus. Clean and efficient. Breafast could be improved - often items were running low and didn't get replaced so choice was limited. Please can kettles be placed in rooms! There was a large UK ladies group staying at the same time who all bemoaned the fact that they couldn't have a cuppa tea!
