My husband had a business trip to Catania. I went with & we decided we'd stay longer & see some of Sicily. This hotel was booked through his job. It is in a central location in the City of Catania. Very pretty hotel. We were greeted at the car, and were treated wonderfully. The room was clean & comfortable, and...

We stayed in the Excelsior Grand Hotel on the first night of our honeymoon in Sicily and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is furnished to a high standard and the rooms are modern and comfortable. The service is excellent - the on-duty manager kindly sent a trolley of prosecco and fresh fruit up to our room free of charge when...

I stayed at the Excelsior a while ago and am only now writing a review as I was reviewing another hotel. My stay there was so terrible, I didn't feel like spending a second longer thinking of the place. I've stayed in many hotels in my lifetime, and I can pretty much attribute one of my worst experiences to this...

A week later I returned and had room 434 for 7 days and this one had the notorious sewer stench which...

Terrible, bland, big hotel with unbelievable noise in every room. Decor is run down. Staff indifferent. Food inedible. Location is OK but that is it. The shower is tiny (no tubs) with a broken door allowing water to spray all over the bathroom. Lighting was terrible. No internet access. Phone didn't work. Tiny television. Poor toiletries. It is clean but...

The hotel is clean and modern, however, there is a definite problem with the plumbing. Our room on the 1st floor had such a stench that we were nauseated. When I reported the problem, a maid came with a spray can of room deodorizer. When I told her that wouldn't do, a man came and poured something down the toilet...
