  • 6.0.Good

    The place is tired and needs refreshing. The staff are equally uninspiring - nothing seemed to come naturally for example wiFi which is free was not offered and required vouchers etc. The room felt tatty and the bathroom was unwelcoming with silicone along bath etc peeling off. Pity. It’s in a prime location with good access to parking and Centre - Accor could do much better

    Great Hotel Walking Distance to Restaurants/Shops

    Plenty of hot water, bar was convenient, area is perfect to walk to Umberto then to restaurants/stores. I needed help getting my two huge suitcases from my car and the porter was great. Car garage was very secure. Very quiet on my inside room. It is within walking distance to Elephant Square for most people.

    Decent Business Hotel

    Older hotel that needs a bit more of work done. Fantastic central area and nice sized rooms but the staff seems overwhelmed and understaffed. It took 25 minutes to check in and another 25 minutes to get my bill upon departure.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Spacious rooms, cleaned everyday, good breakfast, a bus stop nearby from where you can catch bus to most parts of the town and also Alibus has a stop at that point which makes it very easy to travel from and to the airport. Reception staff and bar staff very helpful. Plenty of restaurants around the hotel. Walkable distance to the town centre. And the room had a beautiful view of Mt. Etna. Will definitely recommend this hotel.

    Good convenient hotel for Catania

    Comfortable hotel in central location about 100m from the airport shuttle bus stop Venga .( Alibus runs every 15 minutes to/from airport 4euro). The restaurant is very nice with good choice for evening meals and breakfast is very good. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. I will use again and can recommend.
