“Smartest location in Catania”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Catania cannot be described as an attractive city....its gritty and real, busy with traffic, lots of graffitti and has some very dodgy areas. This hotel is in one of the smarter areas with good shops, restaurants and bars in the area, but within 5 minutes walk of the morning markets which are a feature of the city. The hotel is smart and calm, we were offered an upgrade of room for 10 euro and had a fantastic large room on the top floor with great views of Etna. Staff were very helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast served on 1st floor with no view. Big selection, everything we could have wanted and we were left on our own to help ourselves. Coffee vending machine style, would be better if staff made fresh coffee to order. Breakfast room a little dated, not up to normal NH standards. Reception organised a cheap taxi transfer to the airport.

Room Tip: Rooms on 9th floor south side quieter, blackout blinds stop sun glare. Room 921 has view of Etna

NH chain has great hotels in Europe.
This Hotel is a bit old and overrated.
Rooms are clean but very small and old fashioned.
Toilets are ok and hotel staff is nice and helpful.
Avoid the restaurant, very poor in comparison with local Trattorias and restaurants of sicilian heritage.
Definitively one of the best hotel for business stay in Catania, but don't expect to find NH standards.

We spent a weekend in the NH Bellini this winter and had a great experience. I'd say the hotel itself is average, with decent beds, bathrooms and linens (four-star in Europe, but closer to standard three-star in the U.S.). The toiletries were excellent, though. What elevates the NH Bellini is the very helpful and courteous staff, as well as the free amenities: parking, wi-fi, breakfast and late check-out on Sunday (5 pm, as part of a 'City Breaks' deal offered by the chain). Its location is a little outside the main attractions, but Catania isn't that large. It was a 15 minute walk to the main historical area and restaurants.

I have been for only a short wk end at NH Bellini and have felt so good there. Great hospitality from reception people Piero and another lady receptionist and also Massimo. Down at the breakfast great service from Giovanni and Antonio and I must encourage the gluten free table, it was excellent to feel cared for with these items at breakfast table. Thank you. I will come again.

very good location with free parking and close to the bus stop to get you to the airport, bust stop only 20 meters away. The hotel is situated in one of the best roads in Catania close to top class shops.The palazzo di Justicia is only 5 minutes away by walk.

Hotel Bellini is placed at a very good location in Catania. It is very central. But when you ask a room you should want a room back side of the hotel. Because other side can be very rumorous because of the bars. They are open until morning everynight. And the street is very crowded. Hotel is clean, rooms are very large and useful. It is very comfortable. Staff is helpful. I can advise you that hotel.

We enjoyed a two night stay at the NH (previously known and signposted throughout the city as the Jolly Bellini). The outside is non descript but the inside is clean, neat and efficient. Rooms are well appointed. Good location in city, close to shopping and restaurants. Front desk staff were very helpful and spoke good English. Free wifi. Breakfast was included in our rate and if was quite a nice affair !
