Stayed one night for business. Room was old and not properly clean. Breakfast served had few options and staff seemed not really customer focus. Parking is on the street, but they call it valet service, resulting overpriced. Will not recommend.

The best hotel in Catania, clean, super break fast. Superb location. And friendly staff. We have been in this hotel for a number of years and we will never change it. This hotel is near piazza duomo, near via Etnea which is full of shops, near the famous fish market and tha daily market. Enjoy you stay.

Stayed at this hotel whilst on tour with a group of about 30 people. Room was passable and clean. Staff were totally indifferent to their customers Food was appalling and the buffet breakfast very limited. The only saving grace was the fantastic location.

We all sat around the small lobby, and were never offered a drink, water, or anything to make this extended wait more pleasing. The rooms were small, cramped...bedspreads not clean and very torn. The entire hotel was...
