bad experience

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: 0
The room is very hot, the cooling system is NOT cool, the bed is noisy, it is impossible to sleep, the breakfast is very poor with no variety or fresh fruit, the hotel is lugubrious and in an area of the city nothing touristy and very far from the center

Basic

Posted May 28, 2017
This hotel is for traveling sales reps, it is a good way out of town (€21 taxi each way) with nothing else in walking distance. The rooms are average size but barrooms are small. In general rooms are tired and showing their age. Simple things like two bedside cabinets and a toilet seat would help. Balcony is small and festooned with temporary washing lines put up by previous guests. You can hear other guests taking a shower and moving around. Restaurant is in. Small conservatory and has a very limited menu, many guests order in. The Experian was saved by the young male receptionist and female chef who were pleasant helpful and very nice. Personally 2 stars. Would I return? No.

disappointed repeat guests

Posted Apr 30, 2017 on Hotels
After several visits to the hotel, for the first time whee given a room on the second floor in the adjasent block without a lift. Room was facing the road side so there was a lot of traffic noise. Also a pump or some other equipment was being heard going on and off during the night which left us with a sleepless night. Breakfast was busy, so the lonely waitress couldn't cope with the work load so there was a waiting timevfor coffee, bread, cheese etc. disappointed.

A fine hotel for a fine price

Posted Jan 6, 2017 on Hotels
Overall experience at the hotel was fine, however, we had to change the room due to multiple sources of noise: little fridge, the air conditioning, the elevator behind the wall. The rooms are clean, but one will not feel excellence due to older furniture and facilities. I was personally disappointed not to find slippers during the winter stay (a day before the NY) - it does feel very cold on the marble floor bare foot. The hotel had quite nice pool outside, I imagine it is best on the hot summer day, as well as cosy breakfast location - outside see-through tent with just fine selection of food and very good cappuccino (ask personally).

Beautiful hotel

Posted Nov 26, 2016
The hotel on its own is fantastic with in built restaurant, pool and very helpful staff. The room was clean and had all the facilities required. Air conditioner did not work very well so the room was quite warm so had to open a window to keep cool throughout the night. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the catania centre and has nowhere really close to eat out so the in-house restaurant helps for a short stay. All in all a quality hotel for a relaxing getaway but be prepared with a rental car or to use a taxi/bus to see the sights.

Convenient for a stay near relatives.

Posted Jul 31, 2016
Pros: The location is convenient for us and well placed to visit Etna.
Cons: It would be nice if the pool was available. Apparently, it has never been used.
Location: See above. It is a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the centre.
We have used this hotel twice and will continue to do so in the future. It is conveniently located near to where relatives live in an area of Catania where there are few hotels. The staff are very friendly, polite and efficient. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. The beds very comfortable. Breakfast is adequate and evening meals are available if required. All in all, just what we need.
