Me and my wife along with another couple decided to take a short break during covid. Since Sicily was still orange and practically under semi lock down, the choice of hotel was very important. My friend recommended the Plaza Hotel Catania. The location is perfect. We wanted a hotel close to the Centre, facing the sea, in an area where we can go for a jog in the morning and with good bar and restaurant. The Plaza has all this and more. The location is great, with beautiful sea views. In the morning we went for a jog and did a work out in an out door gym that we found, but the bar and restaurant are what sells this place. Located on the roof of hotel you have a great bar with great selection of wines and a restaurant that serves excellent food. We spent lots of time on the roof eating and drinking, most of the time served by Alfio and Francesco who took really good care of us and made our weekend a memorable one even during the difficult time of covid. This is a hotel that I will definitely come back to!!

The Plaza Hotel is very clean and a pleasant place to stay. We had two different hotel rooms and the sea view room was far better. Slightly larger plus had a balcony where we could enjoy the breeze and view. The food in the restaurant was fine but breakfast was not as good as I was hoping.

Looked with a nice view over the ocean, but a bit to far for walking distance into central Catania. Reception where nice and welcoming. Rooms are a bit small. Had a single room, but still. Breakfast was good on the fourth floor. You could sit inside or outside. I parked my car on the backside of the hotel and asked at check in to see if that was ok. They told it was not safe and that I should pay for parking in a garage. That made me feel unsafe in that area. Finding the garage in dark evening was hard. If I had rented a bigger car I would have had it even harder getting the car into a parking spot in the garage.

Dear Joahn, thank you for having stayed at our hotel. Here at the Plaza Hotel Catania we have different types of rooms. We have some smaller economy rooms in size, but we have as many larger and very panoramic rooms. Our garage is located on the floor less 2, but it is very bright, so its note is not very clear. We hope, however, to welcome you again. Best regards Luca Trovato General Manager

This hotel was a total disappointment. Do not stay here unless you are looking for a 2-3 star hotel. I travel all over the world and stay at many hotels and this was DEFINITELY NOT a 4 star - I was so shocked that it had that rating and that it has a certificate of excellence?!?! 1. The rooms are dark and very outdated - the whole hotel is outdated, I felt like I was teleported to the 80s but in a bad way 2. My bathroom had someone else's hair on the floor and in the shower 3. The breakfast was horrible ....horr i ble! 4. To get into the parking lot is not clear and you have to get out of your car to push the button for someone to let you in 5. The location sucks, not close to the city centre, just in a random part of town 6. I had booked a room or one person and at checkout they accused me of having someone else in my room because there was another person's name on my reservation - not sure how this happened, but that definitely does not make me feel safe and secure!!! 7. They charge 5 euro for a bottle of local beer 8. The walls are so thin that I heard everyone that passed by THIS IS NOT a 4-star hotel and I wish I knew that beforehand. People need to be honest with their reviews. I would never stay here again and would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone unless they are looking for a super-economy experience.
