Spacious comfortable room with a mezzanine area bedroom.Breakfast just ok,a bit chaotic and busy,no table available,staff trying to catch up with number of diners present.Quite a small area for number of guests.
This hotel is cosy, really comfortable with lovely and helpful staff. The location is just off the main square and couldn't be better for enjoying everything Catania has to offer. The breakfast was lovely, late checkout (although I think this is the norm in Sicily!)...More

The buffet breakfast was part of a package tour I was on. It was reasonable but not outstanding. The reason I like this hotel is I left something important behind and didn't realise it for a couple of days later. When we returned to Catania I called in on the off-chance they might have it and to my good fortune the cleaning staff had picked it up and it was in safekeeping for me.
The hotel has limited parking on the premises so you can reserve this in advance. I generally do this but sometimes it is fully booked and I have to fend for myself on the side streets. I have always managed but I suggest... More
The hotel has limited parking on the premises so you can reserve this in advance. I generally do this but sometimes it is fully booked and I have to fend for myself on the side streets. I have always managed but I suggest you reserve directly with the hotel if you are worried.
