A really lovely hotel. Three of us spent three days in a room here and it was lovely. Our room was right by the top of the car park, but still was not too noisy. Very clean, nice touches, as many towels as you liked, working wifi and valet parking (a surcharge of €15 for parking) and a really lovely buffet breakfast (cooked breakfast for an extra charge). The hotel is on a hill with great views down into the valley, over the gardens and out to the bay. You can see Etna from the swimming pool. The pool has a bar in summer, the terrace is open year round tho and you can have wine out there whenever you like. The bar is 24 hours and there is also a library and a chess board. The staff are helpful, patient and very nice and they also generously allowed me to stay in the room till 1pm even tho check out is 11am as they had no one waiting to come in and our flight did not leave until late evening.
The location is very convenient, a short walk to the main street of Corso Umberto I and all the bars and restaurants around Piazza IX Aprile but also not far from the Greek Theatre. It is easy to miss so if you are driving, once you get onto Via Bagnoli Croce, a one way, narrow street, go relatively slowly – it is just past the gardens on the right, a hidden, very steep right turn – best to leave the car at the top and have it valet’d.
