“Just great...”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

I think the people made this hotel for us. We wanted to eat in the first night (since it was pouring out) but they were booked out for an 18th birthday party. Since it was my wife's birthday too, they happily plied us with prosecco, free of charge, and then served dinner as room service, complete with free birthday dessert. It was one of the best meals we had on that trip - no, the best.

The bar staff, wait staff, maitre, receptions staff were all charming and helpful.

Highly recommended.

nice and clean rooms
kind and helpful personnel
perfect location, in the middle of the city center
easy to reach either by public transport or by your own car
private parking available, but also easy to find parking place on the street just in front of the hotel (free in the night)
wi-fi works well
the noise of the street in the night (not much traffic anyway) does not disturb if you are not very sensitive!

The hotel was centrally located, with easy access to all major attractions. The decor was opulent and the service friendly and helpful.
Room service was unobtrusive, lacking the abruptness one often finds in hotels of major tourist destinations, thus allowing for privacy and uninterrupted sleep and rest.
Wheelchair access was adequate although the provision of a walk-in shower without a step would be advisable.
Overall, would be more than happy to return there.

This hotel was in a great location, very clean, great breakfast! However, the room was a little dark , not a big deal but more lighting would be better.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Royal Hotel is a four star hotel in the centre of Catania with 19 rooms. The rooms are positioned on three different levels. Each room is named after either an important Sicilian person or period of Sicilian history. The first floor is dedicated to Vincenzo Bellini. A world-renowned composer, born in Catania, and author of noted works like La Norma. The same Norma lends her name to our most beautiful suite. This suite boasts beautiful vaulted ceilings where, following a meticulous and complex restorative project, we were able to maintain the original frescoes, painted in the 18th century. The frescoes are not the only unique features of this suite, which could more accurately be called a royal apartment. It is almost 50m2 and has a fabulous bathroom, like something directly from the fabled Arabian Nights. The second floor is home to the rooms dedicated to Magna Grecia (Latin for "Greater Greece"): a very important period in the history of the city of Catania. The third floor is dedicated to Giovanni Verga. This author brought the name of Catania and of Sicily into the lives of many around the world with his historical novels, names that are kept alive today in names of the rooms of our hotel. All rooms are equipped with LCD monitor, WiFi, and a control panel for the electronic adjustment of lights, but most importantly they are very spacious. The Superior rooms boast either a splendid four-poster bed or a private terrace. One of the Superior rooms has a private access to the rooftop terrace with the possibility to book the exclusive use of the Solarium and the Jacuzzi. The Suites are particularly ample with separate, clearly defined living and sleeping quarters. The Suites also offer a relaxing shower with water massage. ... more   less
