    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Miserable room, harassed over arrival times (although I did understand later on, the reason).....as I appeared to be the only one and they had to come specially to meet me with the keys. I never saw the glorious coloured ceilings in the pictures of hotel. Who took those photos I wonder? Lighting* awful and dismal in room. A long walk to external toilet. Facilities majorly lacking. Just a depressing room. No breakfast facility. One Of the worst places I have stayed in. Ruined my holiday. How did this get a 4*. What was Expedia doing?

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    This is a gorgeous palazzo from the outside and the rooms on the upper floor, the piano nobile, are pleasant, I am sure. My room was ton the lower floor and a little sunless facing a light well at the back. Moreover, the heating was not great and there was a fair amount of noise from heaters and other machinery. The situation is excellent, but there are better places to stay in Catania which are nearby.
