Such a shame....I suspect in its day this was a lovely hotel...sadly not so now. On the plus side, it was immaculately clean, the evening waiting staff were excellent and there was a large free car park. We we were upgraded to one of four suites - faded, but lovely. Breakfast grim- sweet thick fruit syrupy juice served in plastic...

Hotel is very tired and in need of a good overall, no restaurant for evening meals, only breakfast. Rooms comfortable but general lack of staff shows in lack of cleaning and maintenance. Has a small pool but not very inviting with tired furniture and no service. Exercise room not available, pizza/cafe at pool closed, basic amenities only. Restaurants within walking...

Lovely old fashioned villa in the outskirts of Catania, perfect starting point for exploring etna and surroundings. The hotel is set in a beautiful lush garden with a very nice swimming pool. We had a family suite with master bedroom, a living room turned into the kids bedroom with 2 single beds and a huge bathroom, all decorated and furnished...

We stayed 2 nights just as a base for touring Etna. The hotel was "faded elegance" and had good sized public rooms and a pool. The staff were very friendly. The hotel was a bit difficult to find and on a busy road. The room was good with a view of Etna.The big disappointment was dinner. No a la carte...

A gracious building, well situated just outside Catania and with easy access for Etna. The whole hotel is full of Sicilian antiquities, marbled patterned floors and objects d'art. The rooms are beautifully old fashioned and rather grand. The surrounding gardens are spacious and lush with a good sized pool. The food was in included in our deal and was not...

The Villa is in the urban sprawl north of Catania on the lower slopes of Etna. It's on a busy street but when you turn in between the high walls you enter a different world. The building is elegant, the grounds interesting, the pool is classical, the rooms are also well proportioned and decorated. Everything is gracious and delightful, until...

This is my favorite hotel in all the world. Tucked away off a busy street though elaborate gates into a lush garden. A beautiful pink old-fashioned villa hotel. Our room was enormous with an annexe for the kids, the baby cot had been made up with embroidered lace and the antique claw foot bath had a jacuzzi. Breakfast is served...

We stayed at this hotel with my wife last August. The room was spacious and cleaned. I was especially impressed with the breakfast, and I could see Mt. Etna on the morning. The room rate was just 93 Euro per night including parking. I think this hotel was good performance.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2013. The place and the rooms are lovely (but get a room towards the back, away from the traffic noise, although nothing can silence the neighbourhood dogs). The real downside is the truly appalling food which seems to come from tins and frozen microwave packages. Among the worst meals we've ever had....

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a touring holiday in Sicily and couldn't have made a better choice. Although it was a little difficult to find, driving from the airport, once we were there we settled in very quickly. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We don't recognise the experience of a previous recent...
