Nice property close to the city center for a few nights’ stay in Catania. Proximity to the main piazza was a huge plus. Overall, a typical European hotel. Our only complaint is that our rental car was damaged after being parked by the hotel (the bottom of the trunk collapsed as though the spare had been taken out, and we left with a small chip in the windshield).
