Extremely good value beautifully clean and full of old Italian character which is what I loved about. It’s like being in Italian walking into the old Palazzo and up the dark stairs to your room which is simple but with air-conditioning Wi-Fi and free soft drink minibar an excellent bathroom.... it’s all good !

This accommodation is in an old palazzo, and looks absolutely gorgeous, if you like historical buildings. If you want a slick room painted white, this is not for you. The rooms are a bit worn out, but the suite we stayed in was in a good condition and I felt like a noble myself. The only means of heating was the air conditioner, which made air a bit too dry. There was plenty of space and the service was kind and cool. The location is optimal, in the middle of the city but also on a quiet street (you can close the wooden inner windows).

I moved here at short notice having found the accommodation I'd booked in Catania was unsuitable. I found the hosts, Serafina and Carlos, kind and attentive. The house is absolutely wonderful - the drawing room in the picture looks even better in real life. I had a huge triple bedroom with a large ensuite shower room all to myself at a very reasonable rate. The location is about as good as it gets - just of Via Etnea, five minutes walk from the Duomo and Fish Market, two minutes walk to the bus for the airport. Heavy shutters kept out any noise from the street. Wholeheartedly recommend.

The service was excellent and proactive at the hotel, with Carlo arranging a very reasonably-priced taxi to and from the airport. The room was huge, with a stunning stucco celing; the bathroom was very modern. Situated just off Via Etnea, the hotel was very central but also very quiet. We'll definitely be staying here again.

This is a great place to stay. The level of service starts before you arrive. Carlo was very helpful and his English is great. He knows everything you will need for your trip. We will definitely stay here next time we go to Catania.
