The hotel is on a hill in a quiet part of Catania, only a short walk from most of the sights of the city. The bedroom (on the 3rd floor) was large and had its own pleasant walled outside seating area with iron table and chairs. Some previous reviews have noted the rooms can be dark, and at night I would agree. This is due to the good size of the rooms, and there only being lighting, from wall mounted sources, or free standing lamps, there was no overhead lighting. However the room was certainly well enough illuminated to read and write with ease.
The bathroom was also well sized, with a good, and large, walk in shower.
Breakfast can be had in the dining room, which has floor to ceiling windows, or outside on the pleasant balcony. The breakfast is a cold buffet of some cakes and fruit tarts, as we’ll as a few meats, cheeses, fruit, yoghurts and cereal. However the selection was quite generic, and quality was average, so breakfast was only taken once at the hotel. There are several cafes within a 10 – 15 minute stroll from the hotel.
The staff on the front desk were charming and very helpful, particularly when the arrival time had to be moved from mid-afternoon to quite late at night.More
