The hotel is situated in a great spot. The views are magnificent, huge choice of places to dine out! Nice place to stay a night or two. We staid with a little toddler. The cot bed was set for us. The room was clean and tidy in an old Italian style. The continental breakfast was fulfilling. The downsize of that...

I started getting a little apprehensive about this hotel with all the reviews but we had nothing to worry about. The location is excellent for sure (not that Aci Trezza is exactly massive but it is the views that win for location) and we found that just about everything else with the hotel was very good. We did 'upgrade' to...

We checked in here after being unhappy at in Acireale. We'd seen Aci Trezza on a day trip and decided we'd be happier there. This hotel is right on the water, and an easy walk to just about everything there is to do in town. Right next door is a cafe (Siciliana del Casa Mar) with desserts, a bar, light...

Dirty, clumps of dirt and dust everywhere. No blankets on bed, single bed sheet placed sideways on double bed. Asked for blanket at reception and was given one scruffy blanket to make my own bed. No heating that worked in our two rooms, needed to put our overcoats on beds to keep warm during the night. No toilet paper in...

Nice mid range hotel with very hospitable staff. Clean rooms though a bit old fashioned. Nicely located as it is sea front. Public parking no problem at all. Good breakfast and nice restaurants in the area. Would definitely recommend

We had a standard ocean view room that was typically furnished and very clean. Two small balconies looked right out onto the ocean, lido and rocks; not really big enough or open enough to sit and enjoy the view, though. The toiletries were very basic. The breakfast buffet was good and also had a view to the ocean, though the...

I praised this hotel last october but made some sharp remarks on the quality of the breakfast. I was here with clients touring together and they liked all of it - friendly staff, nice spacey rooms, divine view and a town with nice ambience. The breakfast had a very nice choice and offered the good bread so necessary when in...

The view from our window was exceptional, and at night we fell asleep to the sound of water lapping against the beach rocks. Unfortunately to leave your room is to lose the tranquility. Except for one young lady who was kind and helpful, the staff was rude. With an obvious disgusted look, getting up from a back room and coming...

Having had groups in several hotels in the Acireale area during several years my conclusion is that the hotels are not up to expectation. It is either sourly staff, complete lack of organization, lots of equipment broken or noise. FInally I was coming to Faraglioni with more than 40 persons and it was just delightful. The staff in both reception...

We arrived in Sicily at Catania Airport and this was our 1st hotel where we stayed for 2 nights. It is located just few km from Catania city and still away from all the traffic and crowd.

“ask for a room with view over the sea”

“Thehotel rooms with both sea views and views of the lane behind. Choose the former which whilst more expensive are also larger.”
 of 5 bubbles Biker21_11, 12 Oct 2015 | Read review
“Ask for the seaview rooms. If seaview rooms are not available go for another hotel as the non seaview rooms overlook a narrow noisy street”
