    The staff is very nice and speaks good English. The hotel is not very big but designed very well, room is small but it has everything you need. The breakfast is good, the best breads I have ever tasted.

    Execellent hotel with very kind staff. Special thanks to Simone, Roberto and Orazio. Benito still has to improve in English. :) We were served with a lot of attention.

    Only the chef seems to be lunatic at times. He needs to improve!

    This hotel is a good surprise. According to international standards, it is a real *** hotel. According to Sicilian standards it is much more than the usual *** hotel. The personnel provides very good advices: for visiting the country, for visiting the city, for restaurants... The localization is perfect to go to center town. It is also perfect to circulate in and around Catania (taking into account the local driving way). Rooms are very large.

    Parking is in the street. It is recommended to ask the personnel to survey the car, but also to help to pay the parking during the day (they are very gentle also for that). It could have been a very good place for families... except that the hotel is located in the border of a desperate area where pitch are operating. A very "glàuco" part of the city (no trouble coming from it for adults).

    NIce hotel renewed 2010, nice staff, 5min walk to centrum, amazing value for money rate

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Nice design, new furnitures.

    The breakfast was extremely disappointing, the served us three tiny (3 cm diameter) bread slices and some crackers. Far from being enugh considering that it is a 4 star hotel. Air conditionning was inexistant in the public areas outside the hall.

    This is a very nice hotel that I will visit again if I stay in Catania, very stylish, good staff and well located.

    Breakfast very poor....and WiFi which you have to re connect everytime you move more than 5m.

    Good

    Position in the city. Friendly staff.

    Breakfast not at the level of the price. Electricity issues during our stay.

    Fabulous

    Excellent and friendly staff. Very impressed by the modern design of the hotel and the use of materials

    As is the case in Sicilian cities, finding ones way from the airport to the hotel was not easy, particularly due to the complexity of the street network and unspecified one way streets. However, on arriving it was a delight to be offered 'valet' parking.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The room was very spacious and comfortable with great design. The staff in the reception was friendly and helpful. My room in the rear part of the hotel was really quiet. I liked the breakfast, especially the cappuccino.

    Electrical switches, as there are many of them placed next to one another, could have been marked better. There could have been more plugs, as you can load camera batteries only when in the room.
