Overall the place quite good! It is extremely close to Catania centre. The staff is really helpful and friendly. The parking was relatively safe. We would return back. I would improve the directional signs and the sign on the external of the building to make it easier to find. The WIFI signal needs improvement. Breakfast area should cater for the...

There was a bad Odor from the sewer that permeated the room. The breakfast was from boxed items. The electricity went out at 12am so no running water or toilets till morning. Was fixed when reported next morning, but was told to turn off the heat in our room because of an overload of electricity. Way over priced for area...

Be careful with positive ratings: - No loving touches like it seems looking at the pictures - The room doesn't look like on the pictures! - Close to the centre but in a run down building in a not so nice location - "Italian" breakfast if you know what that means...no fruits, no fresh bread, Mulino Bianco biscuits & packed...

We thought we had added a night the week before arriving, but they had no record of it. They quickly found us accommodations a block away, and on the next day got us settled in. Nice, clean place, with an attentive staff. Excellent location, adjacent to the main market and Eliphante Piazza

I was in Catania for one night and booked this hotel. Location was perfect, hotel inside an old palazzo. Nice bedroom with amazing bed. Breakfast is served in the palazzo's living room with its high ceilings and big windows. Would recommend it.

Great hotel with a great price!! I strongly recommend it. It is on the 1st floor with no elevator, but rooms are perfect and so is location. Very nice staff and good breakfast. To park inside you have to pay 5 euros. If I went back to Catania, I would repeat this hotel

We really enjoyed our stay at Acqua dell'Arte. The room was beautiful and the location was perfect - just 3 minutes walk from the main square. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was nice. The only drawback was that the room was not completely sound proof, so at night we could hear everything that happened in the corridor, and...

Great location, friendly, clean, comfortable and great value. Plus they offer parking if you need it. I can't recommend it more highly. It's down the street from the fish market and a ten minute drive from the airport.

Great location only minutes from the La Pescheria and Piazza del Duomo. Additionally only minutes away from Piazza Borsellino where buses go to Syracuse or the lido (beach) area of Catania. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Accommodation spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very good air conditioning. Whilst we had no Italian we had no problems. We paid €65 per night for...
