The best feature here other than the impressive frescoes in the reception area has to be the location. Just off the main pedestrian concourse which slopes gently down to the Duomo. The owner is a scion of the family whose 100+ year-old palazzo has now become this hotel. The room was fine, very atmospheric, loaded with antiques as is the...

This place is amazing, very good location, kind and helpful staff. Thanks particularly to Serafina and Carlos. My room was huge and I especially loved the desk and the bay window. Bathroom, although outside of the room, was no hassle at all and quite spacious. Stayed solo for three nights and definitely would stay here again when I visit with...

Good value for money. Our bathroom was out of the room but we didnt have to share. It is basic but clean and has friendly staff. If you look for a cheaper option and dont mind basic, this is great!!!!

The location is brilliant -quiet yet very central. We had the suite which was quirky with its painted ceiling and spotless and so spacious. This is a no frills budget hotel but was absolutely perfect for our three night stay and we would certainly recommend it. Each night we ate an excellent meal at a place recommended by our host...

If I could I would give it 10stars. Very easy to get to once you learn how Italian streets worked. Near the hop on hop off bus so being a tourist was easy. The host Carlo was very nice and extremely helpful from start to finish. We asked him about Etna tours and recommended a company. He even called and...

the hotel is in the heart of Catania, right near the Via Etnea, between vila Bellin and University Square. Equal distance. 15-20 minutes walking from the central bus station, a lot of restaurant and stores closer, nice monuments...the hotel is located at 1st and 2nd floor of an old nobiliar building. very impressive. the rooms are very clean and warm....
