Close to city centre. Nice setting

Posted Aug 1, 2017
Pros: Central location and ambience. Friendly helpful staff.
Location: The hotel location is a short walk from the centre of the city near most major attractions (Cathedral, churches, shopping, Benedictine monastry)
Stayed 4 nights. Very comfortable and quiet location. Room had skylight windows but good size and comfort more than compensated. Nice bathroom. Good breakfast choice.

Don't go! Upgrade to 5 star

Bed bugs, ceiling hanging down, no hangars for clothes and moaned at when you asked for more- 4 hangars between 2 of us! Water went off after 4 days and remained brown for the rest of our stay. Disappointing - pay to go 5 star - we will next time!

Wonderful hotel in a perfect city center location. The staff was very friendly, especially Gabriele. The room was very spacious and good storage...beautiful high ceilings and French doors that open up to tiny balconies. Great choice and would definitely stay there again and recommend to my friends.

Rooms are not smoke free as booked. I had booked two smoke free rooms and my daughter wound up sleeping on a mattress in my room because her room smelled of smoke, which staff then tried to mask w chemicals to which she was allergic. Internet access is intermittent. Breakfast is good. Staff is overwhelmed and not able to make decisions.

Great location and great staff

I'll Principe Hotel was really easy to find while walking thanks to multiple signs leading you to the hotel. Check in was easy and painless even with a relatively late arrival. The rooms are well appointed and clean for the most part. One of the two rooms we rented had paint peeling from the ceiling, so that was kind of off putting. Overall a quality place to stay with great staff near the heart of Catania with many attractions in easy walking distance.
