We stayed 4 nights in September 2012. Very well located in Catania. Large rooms with comfortable bed. Very clean. Breakfast were included: Lots of choice to choose from. Nice bar. My only negative comment would be that coffee in the morning buffet was instant coffee... But it was possible to ask waiter for espresso/ cappuchino (at no cost).

Efficient reception. Good sized bedroom with good A/C. Breakfast fantastic:great range of meat, cheese, fruit, pastries, juice and even sparkling wine to make your own Bucks Fizz. Bedroom was dated-peeling paint and poor lighting, but abundance of towels. Set dinners were average; fish on both evenings.

I spent a week at the Excelsior Grand Hotel in May/June of this year while in Sicily on business. The hotel was clean, comfortable, relatively well appointed and had large guestrooms, at least compared to many other European hotels that I have stayed at. The location in the centre of town is excellent, within walking distance of most of what...

Stayed in the Excelsior Grand Hotel in Catania while on business. The lobby, restaurant and common areas are clean and attractive, and the staff was friendly. The rooms, however, were in need of updating – the bathroom in my room had what appeared to be mold growth and the shower barely worked. While I did not spend much time in...

My 2011 guidebook stated that Excelsior Grand Hotel is a serious competitor of UNA Palace Hotel, yet I found out why Excelsior ranks far below UNA Palace on TA based on traveler reviews. I was on a business trip in the Catania area, so my colleague and I booked a 15-night stay at Excelsior Grand Hotel. For a supposed 4-star...

If you're looking for a traditional, comfortable and classy hotel, the Excelsor is it! Quiet, clean rooms with good service and if you have a car, under ground parking too!

Great location, friendly staff and breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice! I came here for a long weekend with three other friends. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay her. Rooms were clean and comfortable, everything was walking distance and the airport bus (457) stops just opposite the hotel making it easy (and cheap - fare was just €1!!) to get...

This was my first holiday alone, first time to Sicily and would like to say that without such brilliant helpful staff, who guided me on where to visit and how to get around, it would have been a different experience. I felt safe, Piazza Giovanni Verga is very central to the main routes, within walking distance to the terminal bus...

Loved every minute in this hotel, rooms are very well kept and the service is top notch. The staff are very helpful at the front desk, restaurant and housekeeping.
