Fabulous Stay
Fabulous hotel! Very friendly staff who attended to all our needs, while keeping a very safe and clean environment and helping us with the Sicilian track and trace system. The room was lovely, good air conditioning, very comfortable and spacious. Location couldn’t have been better, close to loads of restaurants and bars, and right in the heart of the historic centre with landmarks within a 5 minute walk. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Catania!
