My sister and I stayed here for three nights and we had a more than delightful stay. Renato was very helpful and recommended some great restaurants. Especially when it came to organising a PCR test centre, we received much needed help and only managed to get an appointment through the staff here. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a tranquil and luxurious stay.

Palazzo Marletta is an absolute jewel in the middle of Catania. It is a 400 year old building with an insuperable location. It only has 7 luxury rooms with all sorts of amenities and without leaving any detail behind. Despite being a very small boutique hotel, they have carefully taken every detail into consideration. Our room was very spacious with an eclectic combination of the original well preserved architecture and very modern Kartell pieces of furniture. Above all, the personnel of the hotel are who really turn it into a VIP concierge experience. Renato, Serena and Flavia are there to make sure you are completely covered with any possible detail and they sure go the extra mile with their kindness and fantastic attitude. We stayed 5 nights (I believe is a record there) and made it our “headquarters” to visit other nearby cities. I can not recommend this hotel enough to anyone visiting Catania.

Antwerp, Belgium
this design hotel is situated only a few meters grom the duomo, so ideal for visiting the center of Catania. it is hidden in an old “palazzo”, has been totally renovated and modernized. the staff is very friendly and professional. there are few rooms, so it is quiet and unlike classic 5 star hotels. in fact it is more a boutique hotel. there is restaurant in the hotel but there are plenty of good restaurants very close by. the room we had was modern, design and spacious enough. bathroom also modern with nice shower. good quality bed. very quiet room. given the limited space breakfast needs to organized so all guests don’t eat at the same time, but the reservation system works well. attention; once in the hotel there is no elevator, so be aware for heavy luggage. but the staff will certainly help you out. there is a valet service but you should call 30 min in advance of arrival. not a hotel for people traveling with kids. certainly to be recommended as an excellent hotel!

Good location, no real communal areas in the hotel which was a shame. No mention of breakfast and not sure this was offered due to COVID. Booked directly on the hotel website which promised an upgrade but didnt get this.

Dear Mr Tim, thank you for writing us a review. First we would like to thank you for giving us a good evaluation of cleaning and service, on the other hand we read that you found you room small, this is due to to fact that the Hotel has been created in a Historical Building and we had to keep the spaces as they originally were, thus the Standard Room that you booked is the smallest, whilst the Superior and Deluxe Double rooms are more spacious. This is also related to the fact that our Hotel does not have many common areas, although we decided to leave a Room to be used as a sitting/reading area, on the first floor. We would have loved to offer you a free upgrade to one of those rooms, but unfortunately, as advertised on Our website, free Upgrades or Late Check-Outs are Based On Availability, and the option of an upgrade was not possible that day as all our 7 rooms were already booked. Regarding Breakfast, all our Guests are informed, from the moment of their reservation, that a Sicilian Breakfast is available on Request with a small extra. We are very keen on the COVID issue, so we handle a menu to Guests who request the service and serve Breakfast in room ( Deluxe Double Rooms) or in our Breakfast room, based on turns. All in all we hope that you had a nice experience of the city Centre with us, and we wish to have you as our Guest again. Kind regards, Alessandra Calabrese - Front Office Agent - Palazzo Marletta Luxury House Hotel
