Great luxury city hotel
Excellent service, staff was great and went out of their way to make us feel welcome! The rooftop bar/restaurant has an amazing sunset view of Etna. Location is in prime shopping and restaurant area, and walking distance to the cathedral. The suite with balcony was spacious and luxurious. It’s not the easiest drive thru the city to get there, but it’s worth it.

6/10 Good

Nice but disappointing in a few important ways.
I was very disappointed in this hotel. First of all, certain areas of the hotel smelled like sewage! Secondly, the hotel couldn't get its act together re: information. First I was told the upstairs bar was open at noon, then at 3:00, then had someone open it up for us at 3:30. Also, the food wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be. The breakfast, in contrast, was excellent. Our room was comfortable, and the use of the "Turkish bath" (simply a steam room) was nice as was the chaise lounges on the 6th floor patio. We got no breakfast the last morning but had to pay the same, high rate. Nice area.

Great Hotel in the touristic center of Catania
The hotel staff was very welcoming and nice. Everyone we interacted with was always making sure our stay was perfect. The hotel rooms were very clean, comfortable. They are maybe on the smaller side but still nice and well equipped.  Our stay came with the free breakfast which had a good selection of products buffet style. Very fresh and tasty foods with enough choices to please everyone. They have local fruits and specialites offered. The waitress was very helpful in helping discover products that i have not seen before and even in preparing them for us to taste it the Siciliano way. Check in and check out were efficient, we only paid what was expected. The hotel location was perfect for tourism (visit of Catania but also access to other tours of the area like Taormina, the Etna or even Syracusa) and in a very safe area. We will definitely come back here the next time we are in Catania. The hotel and especially the staff there made our 4 nights stay there extremely enjoyable.
