Best Western Hotel Mediterraneo
Ranked #6 of 49 Hotels in Catania
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2010

When visiting Catania, the good idea to choose hotel Mediterraneo. Why? The hotel is really (and surprisingly) quiet (do not judge just from the first look), situated in the street without overcrowded traffic nearby. The hotel is at a walking distance from the centre (Via Etnea).
It is also true what was already pointed out by other visitors: helpful staff (when we decide with my wife to visit the city of Taormina, the reception clerk provided us with the detailed information where to find a bus and time schedule of Departures/Arrivals, etc.), comfortable rooms, really good breakfast of the buffet style...
So thanks to the Hotel and its staff we enjoyed our visit of Catania.

We stayed in this hotel in early July 2010 for three nights. Finding the location was a bit of a challenge as we travelled by a rental car (driving in Sicily is adventurous by itself). A parking garrage across the street is offered for a charge but there was no problem finding a spot on the street in front of the hotel. Room was of on adequate size,clean and very well equipped. We really enjoyed the electric sunblind. Breakfast offered a wide choice of food and drinks. However some improvements could be made. We missed some sort of sausages for example. Our only remark is about the location. The surrounding streets are shabby and walking back to the hotel in the middle of the night might make someone fear for their safety. But all that are minor drawbacks. We definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Hotel Mediterraneo was a great hotel for our situation. We only stayed in Catania as we wanted to tour Mt. Etna and since we had an early morning flight. Our Mt. Etna tour got cancelled due to inclement weather so we spent more time that we planned at the hotel. They provided great suggestions for lunch and dinner locations, however we felt uneasy walking around Catania. The desk also set up a cab and wake up call for us. We also utilized the hotel's fitness room which was well equipped. We went with Hotel Mediterraneo after reading guide book and Trip Advisor reviews. The credit card machine was not working when we checked out so we had to pay cash. Luckily our excursion was cancelled and we had adequate cash on hand. Overall we were satisfied.

Friendly, helpful staff, who were generally fluent in English, were a highlight of this hotel. We stayed in a triple room, which was clean and had a large, fully appointed bath. A nice amenity of the hotel is a fitness room that is clean and contains relatively new equipment. Breakfast was plentiful, with a reasonable varieties of cereals, breads, cheeses, meats, juices, cereals, and coffee/espresso. Another nice feature of the hotel is that it offers a secure parking garage (12 euro/day), one of the main reasons we choose to say here. The only negative of the hotel is the location, which is not close to the center of Catania. Also, restaurants are generally not within easy walking distance. If this is important to you, then a hotel near the cultural district would be a better choice.

This business-style hotel is only 10 minutes from the action but far enough away to ensure a sound night's sleep. Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful and breakfast even included fresh wholemeal bread as well as cereal, cake, fruit etc. Wi fi is free. Just one thing... we were told to go to the main bus station for Mt Etna but the bus does stop not far from the hotel.

The BW Mediterraneo was a very nice hotel for the price. It was perfect for us who needed to stay there just one night before departing Sicily and getting in a day of sightseeing. If you want to park in their garage however you need to call ahead, but for a small price I parked on the street and bought a ticket to park for a half day and it was free at night. The breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly and helped us with much information.

There's one problem with Catania however. There are hardly any street signs, so if you don't have a GPS it's really difficult to find the property. I believe the hotel knows this and posted many signs leading you right to the front door of the hotel.
