Very nice hotel and very helpful and friendly staff. We had a great room, sadly the air conditioning failed, but they did quickly find us another room to match which was appreciated.
The restaurant on the roof is not cheap, from starter to main, each is around 20-24 Euro BUT the food is very good, something which, surprisingly, the local restaurants are not. That was the one downside of Catania, it's a lovely place, ideal for a long weekend break say 4-5 days, really nice sandy beaches only a 10 minute bus ride away, surprisingly inexpensive, Mount Etna, it's all good but unlike the rest of Italy the restaurants are not up to much. Taormina is worth a visit, train there in 45 minutes, the views are stunning. Overall an enjoyable place to go but if you are staying for a week or more I suggest you hire a car for a few days to explore the East side of Sicily.
