Nicely renovated hotel with comfortable and well-equipped rooms and helpful staff and with a wonderful rooftop breakfast room. Although the hotel is located a bit further away from downtown, it is situated along the coastline with wonderful view to the sea.

The hotel was very nice but Bruno who works the front desk really made it great. He was so charming and informative! He joked with us and ended up sending us to a restaurant down the street called Andrews. It was the best dinner we had on our 14 day Italy trip! The people there were incredible! We told them...

This was my second stay in Catania so I decided to stay somewhere with a sea view. This hotel does have one but it's not exactly picturesque. I arrived late evening and getting to my room couldn't have been easier. Everyone of the reception staff was incredibly helpful throughout my stay. Thank-you. My room with a balcony was clean, tidy...

The location of the hotel is very good - near the sea and not so far from the city center. The staff was very helpful. The room was large and very clean. The breakfast was rich and very good and was served at the roof terrace with sea view. There is an underground garage where to park the car.

This is a nice hotel across from the water. The staff here were wonderful and most of them spoke English quite well. There are several restaurants close by. The included breakfast was good and included a variety of food. The room was large and clean. I believe the rooms on the ocean side were smaller, but, have a fantastic ocean...
