We were in Sicily for 2 weeks and chose this hotel because it was fairly close to the bus/train. The staff were very helpful; helped arrange a cab for an early morning trip to the airport. Breakfast was not included and this was the only hotel we stayed in that didn't include breakfast.

We had some of the best views of any hotel in Sicily and the staff were incredibly helpful booking excursions. Sadly we were in Sicily with bad weather but they helped us with lovely trips so it didn't matter. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The overall stay was most enjoyable. The hotel was everything that you'd expect, however the overall atmosphere was a degree too formal. It is not possible to fault any of the staff or facilities nevertheless the experience would have been exceptional had everyone just 'lightened up' for some of the time. Also accept that customers may in certain circumstances like to fend for themselves by at least giving them the option of in-room tea/coffee facilities.
The fact that the apparent lack of clientele resulted in many of the added value facilities being unavailable was of some disappointment - for instance we would have loved to have experienced the pizzeria and poolside kitchens.
The food was of a high standard, however the same can be said of the local restaurant just over 300m away, therefore the prices in comparison seem high.
Overall though a great holiday!

Check in was dreadfully slow but efficient and the staff helpful, with maps and advice about where it was safe to wander. Our room was a good size and the bathroom huge with a bath and large walk-in shower, and the balcony and view of Mount Etna really were a bonus. Walking distance from shops and the main sights, the location is convenient and central and parking is available off road... but book ahead to guarantee a place. We ate in the restaurant and the food was fine, but we were the only people eating, so very soulless. The hotel has claims to be one of the top hotels in Catania and for location and size it may be, though from public areas to our room I felt that the hotel was looking tired and needed an upgrade. Check-out was really slow, it took twenty minutes to be served, despite five people behind the desk, but only two serving and the rest struggling with what appeared to be an IT problem. However, the hotel served our need and I probably stay again were I return to Catania.
