Easy check in on arrival. Great restaurant recommendation for our first night from the front desk. Hotel is really central in the city. Great location for visiting all parts of Catania. Minutes from the main squares with loads of restaurants within easy walking distance. Had a problem with water supply but the hotel moved our room with no fuss. Rooms very spacious and clean. Highly recommend getting the hotel to arrange airport transfers as price is on par with local taxis without the fuss.

I stayed with my boyfriend in September 2020, and found the hotel in a charming central area of Catania. Walking distance to everything you need. The room was comfortable and spacious, no complaints. I recommend emailing the hotel in advance to reserve their parking valet if you have a car*

Hotel located right in the centre of Catania, near the pedestrian and shopping area. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are charming but would some little retouch in the maintenance. The breakfast is rich and of high quality.
