Stayed here on our first night in Sicily (18th July), 1 of 5 resorts we visited in a whistle stop tour. The standard room we took was spacious, clean, the hotel was in a good location for an evening meal and day time wander. The reception / front desk were very helpful (I should have made a note of the...

We booked Il Principe through a discounted deal over the internet a couple of months before our holiday and it gave us great value for money. The breakfast was a very high standard with top quality produce and fantastic coffee from an expresso machine and nice waiters. The reception staff were genuinely nice and helpful with directions for buses and...

My only trivial suggestion to improve the excellent service would be...

So, this was the last hotel of our Sicily trip, and the second one we tried in Catania after the Liberty. A friend had already left so we booked a triple room; reached the hotel by car, and you know driving can be both fun and nerve-wrecking in Sicily, although indications to reach the hotel are pretty clear. As was...

Our first time to Catania and we booked into this beautiful hotel for two nights. The friendly porter parked our car for us and then showed us to our fantastic bedroom. It was amazing and spotlessly clean and very large. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfasts were probably the best breakfasts we have ever had in Italy...
