Katrina greeted us as we walked in. She worked hard to assign us a room to our liking which made our stay that more memorable on our first day in Sicily. The happy hour at the roof top bar is recommended with a buffet of appetizers and a drink all for 10 Euros. The next morning we had breakfast on the open roof with a full view of Mount Aetna.
We stayed at Una Plaza again on our last day in Sicily. We couldn't complete our flight check-ins but Rita at the reception went into action and called Alitalia and made sure we were taken care of.
What else does one want, a place with memorable experiences, an effective and friendly staff and a great location on fashionable via Aetna.

This is a really nice hotel with lovely grounds. Although everything was not perfect, the staff more than compensated for this by the effort they put into customer service. I highly recommend this hotel if you need to stay close to Catania airport. Also recommended if you want a nice quiet and relaxing holiday.

What a cute gem of an hotel in a great city centre location. Perfectly convenient for getting anywhere in town or using as a base for meetings. Very friendly staff who were well organised and managed to host us on a good meeting day. A very comfortable stay.

Primarily, it was the friendliness of the staff (plus the local shop-keepers and the other guests!) that stood out - an extremely amenable and amiable place to stay.
A couple of points to note - the hot tub shown in the website photos is only for the use of people staying in the penthouse suite, so don't expect that.
Secondly, the pool is lovely but not enormous - if you were planning lengths in an Olympic sized pool, this ain't for you. That said, the pool is located in a great little sun-trap but with enough shady spots to either choose to sun-bathe or cool off, it was really clean and plenty big and deep enough for three teenagers (plus the other guests) to lark about in.
Thirdly, the location is out in the suburbs of town with no amazing restaurants nearby (but the local pizza, patisserie and fish restaurant have decent food at very low prices) - but town is either 15 mins by bus or a 30 min hike away... You can take a taxi, and if you do ask the hotel to book it. Hailing a cab on the street is massively expensive (even by London standards). Or, take the free shuttle bus laid on by the hotel - either to the town centre or to the beach (the bus leaves the hotel at 10 am, and returns at 4:30pm so there is not much flexibility there - we used the free bus in the morning on some days and returned via public bus or taxi on some days).
Hotel decor is fab - my eldest said it was as if we had a rich Italian friend and we were staying in his home!!
"Romano House is beautiful, modern, and minimalist."
The hotel desk clerk went out of his way to help give me exact directions, help with left luggage, and just be a welcoming presence in a new city for us. Breakfast was superb. The hotel was quiet yet near center of the city.
