“Economy accommodation quite far from centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2010

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel features free private parking, it was essential for us since we traveled by car.

The hotel is located quite far from city centre. It takes about 30-40 minutes to reach the centre on foot. However it wasn't a problem for us, because we love to walk being on vacation. Be prepared that there are not restaurants close to the hotel, all of them are 10-20 minutes on foot. The supermarket is the closest source of food and drinks.

The room was very basic, but clean. Breakfast was also very basic and meagre. But the price is unbeatable! If you need simple and economy accommodation is Catania Villa Mater is the right choice.

Difficult to find, go on the motorway from airport so get into Canilicchio and then ask. Mad drivers.Room clean and spacious, bathroom small but fine for 2 weeks. Breakfast lovely with friendly staff.Free secure parking.Bus closeby for Catania Centre.Take away food in Canillichio 2 mins in car or 15 walking.View of Etna from window. Choose a day with no cloud to go to Etna. Very good value .2 free public beaches in Catania bus available Lots of private lidos where you pay for facilities on beach Once you get your route sorted out to get out on to motorway very good centre for travelling to all important
sites in all of Sicily. Road signs practically non existent except on motorway and quite good away from Catania take a good map and stay calm!! Sat nav useful but we were good without one

We stayed 1 night only, the hotel is a 2 star but was very clean and the rooms where big and in good decorative order. The mattress was a bit squicky and the bathroom a bit small. The hotel serves a breakfest buffet which i found very good. You would need a car or use taxi's as it is on the outskirts of town. But is is exellent value for money and I would recomend it and would definateley stay there again.
