We have just returned from a wonderful two night stay at the Una Palace Esperienze. This was not our first stay but I would like to write this review of a stay in mid pandemic. The hotel is following all protocols for the safety of its guests, in the room everything is spotless(as always), remote controls are sealed in plastic, toiletries in zip lock bags. I normally wipe everything with alcohol but didn’t feel the need to do this when we went to the room. Breakfast was also served according to the protocols. I did not feel unsafe at any point during my stay at this hotel. I must thank Valentina at reception for helping us out when the plane did not takeoff due to Etna volcanic eruptions. We had to postpone our stay by one day and this was made possible by the management. I was celebrating my 60th birthday and the staff(please forgive for not remembering all your names]’ made our stay as beautiful as possible. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I have stayed in many hotels in Catania but this this is the best one by far. I usually visit Catania at least once a year and this will be my go to hotel. The hotel is perfectly located on Via Etnea, within easy walking distance to many restaurants and bars and shops for those who like shopping. If you have a room with a balcony onto the main street you can also get a lovely view of the Etna.

One of the best hotels in the center of Catania. Rooms are comfortable, personnel is very professional and kind (Roberta at the reception is simply fantastic), the rooftop restaurant has an amazing view on Etna and serves delicious dishes (Wine list can be improved).

...goes definitely to the folks from the Palace Catania. At the Check In, at the breakfast on the roof top terrace or in the 1st floor, the housekeeping or the check out. While the place is a well appointed, well run place, the way the staff is greeting and welcoming you is just exceptional and great! Thank you for the daily americano and cappuccino 'per la stanza'!

We stayed here because of the convenient location 15minutes from the airport. The room rates are good at the moment and both our rooms were upgraded to give us views of the busy Main Street from a balcony which gives some entertainment on a Saturday night. The roof restaurant and bar is smart and you get what you pay the premium for. Breakfast was well served and presented, sadly rooftop breakfast is not available just now. The hotel has good COVID controls. We would happily stay again if in Catania Very helpful staff at all levels.

I booked here because it has valet parking, and it looked like they are taking Covid seriously. On both counts this hotel was excellent. Other central hotels say they have parking, but that means there’s a public parking lot a few streets away. NB On no account obey Google and drive down Via Toscana to the back of the hotel. Via Toscana is approx 2inches wider than your car, and you wanna leave that to the valet guys. You’re allowed to drive down Etnea to the main door if you’re going to the hotel. I respected the decor in this hotel, without actually liking it. It’s done with care and has a particular aesthetic. You may love it - I found it too stark, a bit psychiatric hospital, as if Nurse Ratched might fetch me for my treatment any moment. The Covid precautions were rigorous without feeling bossily oppressive. Bed great, bathroom and toiletries good. Our room looked onto Via Etnea but was very quiet. Service was mix of some being a bit indifferent, others excellent. But these are hard times, I wouldn’t want to criticise as nothing is easy in 2020.
