We booked four nights here in room 106 with that great view of the piazza and the duomo in the distance. The hotel is on a beautiful piazza one block from the Duomo and a short walk to the fish market and all the sites. We really enjoyed walking around Catania and found the location of this hotel to be very convenient.
The hotel is entered through the building's courtyard and up two flights of stairs...no lift. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The a la carte breakfast was typical with toasts, cakes, yogurt and fruit served in a small nicely appointed room. The room was a nice size and clean with the typical conveniences.
Parking is a bit of a problem. We were able to leave a car on the street near the fish market overnight however it is a bit confusing as you park perpendicular to the curb on the sidewalk in the evening and then parallel to the curb once the market starts at 6:30 in the morning. We used Catania as a base location for two day trips to Taormina and Siracusa and it worked out perfectly.
Once we landed in Catania we caught the bus to Piazza Borselino/Alcala and it was a five minute walk. We did the trip in reverse after two days to pick up the rental car at the airport. Very easy.
