One Hotel, two souls: the charm and the contemporary design… Situated at the top end of Via Etnea, the major street of the city, is a unique structure for character and atmosphere, the expression of a perfect blending between the opulent luxury of an old 19th century house and the more up-to-date area combining every comfort and exclusive design.Hydromassage tubs or showers, LCD TV, internet wi-fi and Sky pay-per-view are the standard for the 52 rooms.

This hotel looks good in photos but the level of hygiene is very poor. The staff were helpful though. Breakfast is good and generous but more for the sweet-toothed. Even the restaurant was unclean with stains on the seats and table cloths. The food in the restaurant was good.

Loved every minute of our few days here. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for the multi-lingual staff. It transpired that we had actually booked at the contemporary styled annexe but were offered the option of a more traditionally styled room in the main

Really impressed with this hotel it certainly had character and still had the style of an old italian villa. Nice spacious room which had a balcony. My only criticism of the room is that there was only one mirror which was in the bathroom so I had to try and stretch my

E' un hotel alla periferia di CT. persone gentili Albergo un po' datato anche se ben ordinato e pulito, costituito da due palazzine quella principale sulla strada, che comunque senza la possibilità di fare due passi, la seconda dopo aver attraversato la hall, si attraversa il cortile e si trova un'altra palazzina dove alloggiavo io al secondo piano ho dovuto trascinarmi a mano le valige perché senza ascensore. senza nulla contestare sicuramente non ci tornerei piu'

Sono d’accordo con la Sig. Isabella. Le risposte offensive date ai Recensori che dicono effettivamente come è l’ambiente sono maleducate. Se il responsabile che risponde alle recensioni cataloga i mobili dell’albergo come “antiquariato”, io proporrei loro di fare visita in qualche discarica così possono “arredare” altre stanze. Far pagare servizi da quattro stelle paragonabili ad un due stelle e rispondere con toni offensivi è veramente squallido.

Buonasera, per i nostri ospiti offriamo gratuitamente il transfert per la spiaggia e ombrellone e sedie sdraio dal nei giorni infra settimanali . Nel week-end il lido non li garantisce. L'hotel dista dalla spiaggia 9 km ca. Consideri che la spiaggia è all'ingresso della città. Spero di esserle stata utile. Cordiali saluti
