We booked this hotel through Expedia where it was rated as 5 star. The place is old and run down, rooms are terrible and by no means I would rate this as 5 star hotel. I will not recommend this place.

My parents and I stayed here when they were visiting me in Italy. We decided to go try out Sicily since it would be a new area for all of us and stayed here since it had decent reviews and was central to many attractions on the east side of Sicily. The hotel itself was decorated beautifully. The grounds were...

Had the pleasure to return to the Romano Palace recently. It was a superb stay! I am so impressed by so many aspects of the hotel. The proximity to the airport is so nice coming in and departing, less than 10 minutes. The room was so comfortable and peaceful. I had a balcony view and was nice at night to...

Please read the reviews for this hotel where we stayed April 18th. There must be a conspiracy between the booking companies and this hotel since it clearly is not 5 star ... room was dirty, air conditioning did not work, mosquitoes took over after 7pm, and staff completely disappeared when it came time (7:30 am) to check out, move bags...

The hotel is basically not really bad, friendly staff at the reception. The garden is nice and kept well. Breakfast is not geeat but ok. The rooms are small. The bathroom was not clean, especially the toilet was not cleaned well. Neither you will find tissues nor a coffee machine or a waterheater in the room. That is just not...

I stayed only one night. I choose the hotel for its proximity to the airport, but… There is no airport shuttle at any time. So I ordered taxi for 04:45. A group of 3 people ordered a taxi on 05:00, so they combined us together. When asking the night before for at least coffee (if breakfast will start later), I...

I found myself in Catania looking for a place to spend two nights, and the reviews were great for this hotel. First of all, the grounds are immaculate and the hotel is magnificent. The desk staff couldn't possibly be nicer or more accommodating, including one young lady, Paola, who spent a half hour in the phone arranging a full-day tour...

This was my fourth or fifth time at this Hotel. Its in Catania but on the outskirts, in summer it has access to a lovely sandy beach just opposite the Hotel apart from having its own outdoor Pool.
