    The decor of the hotel is amazing -- every detail impeccably thought through -- fabrics, carpets, furnishings - take you back to the days of art nouveau. The staff clearly wants your time in Catania to be special, and enthusiastically recommend sites and food experiences. The Liberty goes on our list of favorites.

    Lovely Hotel, Wonderful Staff

    The Liberty is a clean and very beautiful hotel and is walking distance from all of the main squares of Catania. The concierge/hotel manager, Silvo, went above and beyond the call of duty and was extremely helpful. The surrounding area, however, is full of graffiti, sometimes trash, and some streets seem dark and not so safe to walk on, stick with the main streets when walking around.
