Charming older hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Wonderful breakfast selection – didn’t vary daily. Our dinners were delicious with large portions. The breakfast room had a spectacular view and lovely outside walkway. The draw-back was that it was too far from the center of town. And mostly businesses around the hotel itself.

Really nice classy old-fashioned buildings with modernised comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms and friendly helpful staff. Our only experience of the restaurant food was on the first night. It was amongst the worst I have ever been served and was frankly insulting. One dish (a roll of veal with ?ham and cheese was very chewy, without flavour and served on a bed... More

One hotel, two faces is the credo for this hotel. This is very true. There is the old hotel and next door is VdB-Next. We stayed at VdB-Next for the second time this autumn. And immediately we felt very welcome. Staff were doing there best to please us. Our balcony had a perfect view over Catania and was the place... More

The location is not great if you do not have a car, but it is a nice hotel, the pool area is small, the staff are really nice and helpful. The bar man mixes a lovely cocktail. I am a vegetarian so the food was not to my taste either in the hotel or out in the town and having... More

Just returned from a lovely stay at this hotel. It has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are very helpful and engaging. The rooms we had were clean, modern with a lovely balcony overlooking Catania and the sea with Etna looming behind. The restaurant was very good and the owners very hospitable. Their adorable British bulldog 'Adamo' stole the show.... More

The location is a bit out of town, which was our intention, as we were just using it as a base for exploring other parts of Sicily. The free hotel parking was handy. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and professional. Our room was large, plenty of space. The bathroom was beautiful, and the shower was great (excellent water pressure,... More

Very impressed with the hotel, very clean and the staff were very helpful. Ate in the hotel on one occasion and it was very pleasant, service was faultless. Unfortunately, we were left very disappointed as the free shuttle which was advertised only ran twice a day, leaving us only able to book onto it once during our five day visit,... More

It was our first time in Catania and we choose to stay in vila del bosco. The location is really nice, away from the city traffic. The room ( I suggest the modern side ) was clean and the breakfast at the roof was awsome. A really nice girl named Vera welcomed us, she has been extremely professional and friendly... More
