Excellent location close to restaurants, shops and just off historical district on a pedestrian street. Well kept hotel. We were in the residence , the older section. We had a large efficiency unit- clean but not renovated. We could not use the kitchen because we had taken the "room only " price - Still very good for the what we paid in Palermo.

A very pleasant and courteous reception. We were quickly transferred to a twin room which had been agreed on their very nice web site from the double room were were taken too initially.. The reception staff were always cheerful and obliging and always went out of their way to help.
The room was very cool, clean and very comfortable in every way although it showed a few signs of needing some refreshing. The bathroom was perfect with an excellent bath, bidet, and separate shower with plenty of luxurious towels.
The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful by any standard but were completely outstanding for Italy. There was always wonderful fresh fruit, as well and a full cooked breakfast or cold meats and cheeses to choose from. There was a good variety of bread, cakes biscuits and croissants. You could also order excellent espresso or cappuccino coffee.
The hotel was crammed with history and I found it charming and convenient in every possible way.

"Good location to Taormina centre, wonderful views"
We had an excellent holiday in Taormina and found this hotel to be an excellent base for the town. It had wonderful views over the bay and of Etna. These you were able to enjoy from the top floor breakfast room. Breakfast was fine but not the most exciting in the world. For British tastes probably too much sweet stuff, and would have appreciated a wider range of bread or even toast. The room we had was a garden view, as someone said previously, more a tennis court view. Again no complaints only a few moans in that it had a "quirky" over the bath shower and the hanging space was very high. They had a pole to help you hang your clothes up and down. I had to resort to using the bathroom stool to reach. the plus was excellent wifi and the beach resort. Although you had to be transferred the journey itself was interesting. The best part was the staff who were very helpful and its position. Within minutes you were in the town centre and all the facilities. The bus station was just a short distance away as well. All in all would recommend this hotel and will return again. Next time we would upgrade to a sea view room and advise others to do the same.

"Excellent hotel for the price and great location"
The hotel is about 2 miles from the train station and what a view you get if you get a sea view room. The hotel itself feels very modern and clean and the staff do their best to speak english and be as helpful as possible. The fridge and safe were of particular use to me. The balcony is very good for early morning rays and relaxing. The usual continental breakfast has bread/meats/cereals/yoghurts/fruit and an array of drinks. I loved every minute of my stay in catania. The public transport is the only downside to the city as the bus running past the hotel (534) seems non existant and there is only 1 bus there and back most days for the famous mount etna which was incredible and out of this world like! You can get the 457 alibus from the airport to the station and follow the coast to the hotel. There are amazing restaurants very close on the seafront just south of the hotel and a supermarket just behind the hotel. A taxi from the hotel to the station costs €15 but buses only cost €1 for 90 minutes.

Although the hotel seemed very busy, our four night stay here had a very helpful staff and manager. The reception rooms for meetings/weddings, family reunions, etc. are available. The hallways, restaurants and hotel rooms/suites were very clean and quiet. It is in a great location. Our 3rd floor balcony from our suite (a two-floor, bath and a half loft that could accommodate 3-4 people) had a view of Mt. Etna! Daily breakfast was very satisfying and and the Happy Hour/Apertivo on the rooftop bar was a very good value. Our king-sized bed was very firm and comfortable. Would definitely consider visiting again--there is so much to see -- not only in Catania, but an hour-2 hours away are other beautiful cities to visit using local, inexpensive ground transportation which is right outside the hotel's doors! We felt very welcomed by the local people and just wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful churches, museums, parks and restaurants, trattoria's, and pasticeria's! We'll be back!

Helpful reception staff. All our rooms had a balcony with a veiw, rooms were cleaned daily and the hotel was spotless. Good size swimming pool although we were only aloud to use a quarter of the pool on our last evening as dining tables were put around the pool we assumed for a special occassion but they were not used that evening.
