    The location and customer service was great. Gabriele on the reception desk and the nightman were very helpful with directions, providing helpful tips for day trips and quickly dealt with any queries. The breakfast options were a little limited, however the breakfast staff were very attentive.

    Perfect location, beautiful views

    Very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating staff. Location is perfect, right in the Centro Storico with easy access to tons of food and shopping. Rooftop terrace is fantastic! Breakfast food was yummy, as well as the caffè americano. I do wish there was a coffee maker in the hotel room, but this is only a minor thing. I would still recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Catania, and I would definitely stay here again!

  • 8,0.Very good

    Very clean hotel and well located.

    The hotel is brilliantly located in central Catania and literally has the airport bus stop opposite outside the hotel. The room was very clean and spacious and had everything that we could have needed - such a fridge, safe, toiletries, TV etc. It also had a bath and separate walk-in shower. We enjoyed the views from the roof terrace which overlooks Mount Etna and has some nice evening drinks there - even though it is not cheap. Due to Covid, the usual buffet breakfast couldn't happen, but we could request what we wanted to be brought to us. This is where the hotel could improve a little. We requested a portion of toast each and water along with other items. Only one portion of toast came and this had no butter. We asked for the butter and the missing water but they never arrived and the waitresses wouldn't wait to hear the end of the request before disappearing again. So, the service was disappointing and only functional, but everything else was very good.
