The Location is excellent and they offer parking too but its a bit sad that they don't allow you to keep the car untill 4pm in the car park even though the parking is never full and you pay 15 euro per day. Wifi almost never worked. Breakfast is very poor only Beverage and 1 Croissant but the hot chocolate...

Superb location in an 18th century palace facing the Cathedral and Elephant fountain. Our corner room on the top floor was comfortable and surprisingly quiet, probably due to the double windows. Very friendly and extremely helpful staff. Only beware that the breakfast is (as often in Italy) rather symbolic and that there is (naturally, given the age) no lift in...

The Hotel is a simple straight forward accommodation but with a great location, looking onto Catania's main Piazza, which is a hive of activity. The thing that really makes this stay exceptional are the fantastic staff, particularly Simone who is the most helpful concierge/ receptionist that I have ever experienced. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and he is...

The hotel is not really a Hilton, but you also do not pay a Hilton price. I had a great room with a perfect view on the elephant monument and the cathedral. The great look was nevertheless accompanied by rather lively and not exactly quite night and early morning life. Bring you earplugs.

Great location with fabulous view onto the main square. Good access for transport and main attractions. Great staff went out of their way to help us get information on organising trips and visits while we were there. We used the hotel as our main base and travelled to other parts of Sicily. This is an authentic small basic boutique hotel....

Great location at Piazza del Duomo. It's located right in the square with great views from the public areas of the hotel. Only about 20 minutes or less to walk from the Catania Centrale train station. Rooms are a good size, but the bathroom and shower were quite small. Beds are not comfortable, but it is worth it for the...

The location is perfect and Simone was always there ready to help. Breakfast is typical Sicilian available from a bar at the hotel's ground floor. One can enjoy the view of piazza Duomo specially at night.This hotel is really value for money.

We visited the Centrale Europa Hotel in Catania for 3 nights. The location of this hotel is perfect. We asked for a quiet room and so we got a room that did not face the main Piazza. Although this view would have been amazing, we are people who need our sleep so our quite room was just perfect for us....

Hotel location and view throug the window is superb! Room and bathroom was big. Air conditioned. Installed new plastic sound proof windows. One receptionist was very helpfull, told many good information about city and Etna trip. Room walls needs repainting. Bathroom not clean enough.

It has wonderful view. I paid 50EUR for piazza view and double bed for 1 person. Great location and wonderful view. But it' all. Nonetheless, if I visit Catania again, I will stay here again. It will be best hotel in Catania...

“The rooms on the Piazza are double glazed so the noise is not excessive but the view fantastic!”

“Rooms with a great view on the square might not suit everyone so you can ask for one that suits”

“Ask for a room with a view, which I am sure you don't need to, as they all seem to have a view of the Piazza Duomo-- but we asked and received. There are rooms with small terraces, and some with windows. When we arrived there were no terraced rooms left, and we got a room with a window which was just as great and had the same view.”
