good central location near many restaurants - however you need to maximize your smile-training when meeting the evening / night concierge. We felt that any need to attend to guest is seen as unwelcome interruption of whatever screen he was watching behing the counter. It took 3 days until our smiles were responded by a more friendly face. Breakfast had been sufficient and the morning staff was friendly.

From the rudeness and lack of knowledge of the staff, to the nonfunctioning refrigerator and safe in the room, to the broken down shower and tired, scratchy bedding and towels, it would seem you could do much better for your money in Catania. Location is ok. Elevator is nice to have. Air con in the rooms (but not the public spaces) works. But the older male at reception was clueless about the hotel wifi, as well as anything other than very basic info about Catania, the younger male was utterly contemptuous, and the older woman was sweet, but unintelligible. Avoid.

It is a very central hotel. On one of the side streets of Via Etnea, 10 minutes away from Bellini Gardens and 2 minutes away from Sicily’s popular market. Very clean. Good air condition and wi fi. Reasonable prices. Very good coffee shops and good restaurants in the area. Highly recommended.

Before doing the reservation, I asked if there was wi-fi. The guy at the reception said yes. I asked if it worked in the rooms and he said yes again. It did not work in the rooms. I had to come to the reception to be able to work. The bed was a bit disappointing, it was way too small.

I stayed in this hotel on my 1st night in Catania as part of my tour. The hotel room is very old. I felt like staying in a very old place with a dim lighting. If I had a choice, I would not stay in this type of hotel. Hotel location is okay.
