Santa Caterina Hotel
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Acireale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We stayed here for 9 nights in July. Acireale is a charming town, a hidden gem with all the Rococo grandeur of better known places like Noto, but without all the tourists.
We stayed in a standard room, which was perfectly comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The grounds are fairly compact but the pool area is lovely with a choice of sun or shade. Staff spoke good English and helped us to book a day trip to nearby Etna. The hotel was great value compared to prices in nearby Taormina.
Lunches are only served at weekends, and are well worth having.
The restaurant attached to the hotel is superb and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Lots of locals come to eat here. Veggies are well catered for, and there's some great local wine on the menu.
It's about a 10 min walk into the centre of Acireale up a gentle slope, but there is one small steep road you'll have to navigate. The approach road to the hotel is also a bit steep. Fine for most, but important to know about if you have limited mobility.

Good location, nice rooms but which can do with redecorating. Room was ok, additional single bed stole space. Comfortable bed. Sea view, from balcony....desk staff helpful and friendly. Excellent cleanliness. Recommended.

We have just returned from a lovely stay in Santa Caterina Hotel where we spent over 2 weeks during our trip to Sicilia and, I must say, this is a place where it actually feels like home. It is especially important when you are travelling with kids. We occupied 2 sea-view neighboring rooms to accommodate our 2 kids and us. The rooms were very well furbished and clean with comfortable beds and amazingly quiet at night.

Our kids were happy about the food. Make sure to reserve a table for the night – the restaurant is on high demand – excellent local cuisine, very reasonable prices and attentive service. Overall, the staff of the hotel deserves the best praise – they all were professional and did their best in making our stay perfect. Our special thanks to Daniela who helped us really a lot with travel-around arrangements.

All in all, the hotel left most positive impressions, perfect value for money, friendly and welcoming, making feel special and inviting to come back. This was by far not our last visit to Sicily and this hotel is definitely our pick for our next stay.

This is a solid, shapeless block of cement, with a view on... a motorway, small and unattractive rooms and unfriendly service. The quality of the breakfast was pitiful. And on top of that, price is sort of a rip off. I would never go back there.

It's far the newest and most modern hotel in Acireale. The rooms are very clean, the staff is excellent and they all speak English. Most of the rooms overlooks the ocean, the restaurant has a gorgeous ocean view as well. It's beautiful to have breakfast in the morning when the sun comes into the terrace. It's location is not too far from the autostrada and close to both Taormina and Catania. I highly recommend this hotel.

I would say that the location of the hotel is a good base to explore Sicily, particularly if you have a hire car (which is generally recommended in Sicily anyway). The position of the hotel is an attractive one because there is an excellent view of the sea and the coastline from the dining room, terrace bar and some of the rooms. We weren't disturbed at all by the road or the trains. The hotel itself is modern, stylish and extremely clean and we found the room to be of a good size in comparison to other hotels. We also had a very nice patio area to ourselves. The pool area was attractive and clean and the swimming pool is deeper than we thought it might be so you could have a reasonable swim. The breakfasts were good with a nice selection including fruits, yoghurts, hams, cheeses, breads, eggs, some cereal and pastries. The staff were absolutely fantastic. They were always cheerful and friendly but not too over the top so you always felt like you could relax. They were very helpful as we had a couple of issues with our hire car which they helped us sort. There aren't that many good local restaurants which isn't too much of a problem as the food and wine in the hotel is excellent. There is a good selection of pizzas, pasta, meat dishes and they have daily specials. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to use this area as a base to explore Italy.

We stayed in this hotel during a long weekend trip to the East coast of Sicily. All I can say is the service was perfect, the hotel is well located and very stylish. The breakfast is good, the prices are reasonable!
