“Great stay”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Norwegian couple. We stayed a week. The hotel is in walking distance to everything, and the staff is really friendly. We could also order super pizza to the room. Great breakfast. Easy to park the car outside. Everything nice and clean. Highly recommended. We would definetely come back.

We had always avoided staying in central Catania before as we had heard of several friends' grim experiences with traffic and sub-standard hotels. Nothing could be further from our experience after a one-night stay at Hotel Liberty. Getting there was a no-brainer with our Garmin delivering us literally to the door; parking was available outside the hotel-door for next to nothing; the suite we stayed in was comfortable with all the amenities you would expect to find in a five-star hotel and no traffic noise at all. We walked down to the city centre and most of the sights were within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance. In the evening the staff sent us round the corner where within 100 yards were about a dozen trattorie; we had an excellent meal for about EUR20 per head at La Terrazza del Barone, which specialises in meat dishes.

We just stayed 5 nights and it was wonderful. I was there on business and my wife wanted to be in the center of the city for exploring. We drove a rental car and no problem parking. 4 of 5 nights we parked on street for 2.40 euro. Staff arranged underground parking 50 meters up the road for the other night. Neighborhood was very safe and we were right where we wanted to be. 10 minute walk to the historic center of the city.
The hotel staff were just great and provided 5 good restaurant suggestions which we followed and were very satisfied. Food was fantastic at all their suggestions.
The room we had, on ground floor #103, had perfect 5 bar wifi internet in the room all the time.
The great staff set me up with coffee in the lobby before I had to leave for business in the morning even though it was before breakfast hours. Extremely helpful and warm always.
I am trying to come up with a good excuse to go back to Catania and the excellent Liberty hotel.

This place really is as good as most reviewers say and all the staff are very helpful.
It might be an idea to book a cab in advance from the airport to the hotel as this will save dragging bags up hill and also if you have not been to Catania before it takes a day or two to get your bearings so finding the hotel might not be easy but once you have found your way around the city the hotel is only a 10 min walk from lots of good food and wine.
Ask at reception and they will give you options of things to do around the city and there is plenty to do we spent five days walking everywhere and did not get to everything we wanted to see.
Last thing use the local shops and restaurants thirty seconds form the hotel both are good value for money.
We'll be going back.

We booked this hotel 6 months in advanced. Got a package ..flight and hotel with Expedia. I checked reviews among TA community and it was mixed. As described, its quite a walk up hill from the bus stop to the hotel with a heavy luggage. However, when we found the hotel, we got all excited. The reception desk was very friendly, took our luggage to our room! (You don't see that hospitality anymore.)..then when we got into our room....wow! It's really awesome, with really tall ceiling and baroque style. Hotel is 4 star but has 5 star amenities. Breakfast is good, the hotel manager and all the staff were attentive and helpful.
