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.

"Airport connection - a bit expensive though nice"
Stayed there for one night - had to leave very early in the morning to catch a flight from Catania airport. The hotel has little pool - though it was chilly to swim. The hotel has a beach, though it is open from June 1st only... The restaurant in the hotel was nice but looked a bit posh (it is 4 star hotel). When arriving, call hotel to book you a taxi. It costs 28 euros from the airport to go by airport taxi. With hotel it costs 15 euros only...

"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.

We stayed here at the end of our Sicilian trip and used it as a base for both the north and south approach to Etna. It was just the bit of luxury we needed. The hotel really is perched on the edge of the cliff with moth a large pool (looking out to sea) and steps in to the sea complete with sea front solarium.
The rooms have everything you need, the standard is fairly basic but does the job the classic is that little bit more comfortable ( we were upgraded part was through the stay due to faulty air conditioning).
There are two bars the more atmospheric on being down by the pool/ sea. The restaurant was nice but a little limited I. Selection and quite expensive for what you get. There however is an amazing pizzeria about 5 mins walk away so you won't go hungry.
All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing few days.

Nicely modernised hotel in nice old building, staff very pleasant, excellent breakfast, and ideal location near the impressive and lively central area; and even handy for the train and bus stations. Could not fault it. And Catania is a really worthwhile city to visit, so easy to take in if you are flying in to Catania airport.
