                      The rooms are very nice and quite large, old style palace.

                      The reception makes a very bad impression: the door on the street is closed and one has to ring the bell. It is very old.Then you have to go to the 2nd floor of the building (the other floors are occupied by other people). The elevator is very small and the strais are steep. Frankly, until you reach the reception, you think this is a trap.

                      The hotel was a great location in Catania. The rooms were very nice and large. The breakfast nice and staff were very helpful always.We would recommend this hotel to others.

                      Very central location, close to all site in Catania. Good parking in the courtyard of the Palace. Nice quiet hotel.

                      The wifi facilities did not work at all during our 2 day stay. Hotel was having a router problem they could not fix. Also one lamp had no light bulb so a corner of the room was dark, requested it be look after but it was not.

                      The hotel is located within walking distance of great restaurants, bars, and city sites. The staff were very accomodating and professional. Parking was secure for 8 euro/night and easy to get to with GPS.

                      Although the staff was wonderful my reservations were not honored as I booked them. I reserved a parking space and arrived and there wasn't one, booked a single room non-smoking for 3 nights and was told after 2 night I would be moved. They moved me to a suite , which was lovely however someone had been smoking in the room. I am allergic to cigarette smoke and they could do nothing about it. I would not stay here again.

                      Wonderful baroque interiors, excellent location, 100 meters to airport bus stop, excellent free wi-fi, very nice staff. Would definitely recommend a trip to catania just for the hotel!

                      staff was noisy during breakfast while washing dishes. bathroom is a bit out-of-date, but otherwise is clean, well supplied and functional.

                      The management helped with all of our needs...pre-arranged (by email) transport from the airport, help with sight-seeing and theatre bookings and so on. The desk staff were always helpful and cheerful and the second capuccino at breakfast was really welcome. There are numerous really good eateries nearby, even though the area at first seemed rather seedy. Streets were transformed into restaurants after dark and we were soon comfortable with the locality...and there was a self-service laundromat a block away. (Don't miss the guided tour of the Benedictine Monastery, now part the University and be sure to climb Etna!)

                      amazingly spacious rooms, frescos on ceilings, very friendly and helpful staff, very convenient location in a very center of Catania

                      absolutely nothing bad to say - perfect combination of value for money

                      Very nice and large room well decorated and clean. Staff is a bit relax but very helpfull. Wi fi works well in the room.

                      The hotel is in fact a large apartment at the second floor of a large building transformed in hotel. So reception and breakfast area are small The lift is ancient like in many italian buildings. The staff is not trained like in a four star hotel but helpful.All this was largely compensated but the room size and nice decoration.

                      It is a nice place centrally located good value .

                      Air conditioning wasn't the best.

                      The staff was incredibly helpful and professionally. We travelled with our baby and the room was clean, big and quiet. So, we highly recommend it.

                      Location, friendly staff, comfortable room (superior).

                      Small, unreliable elevator (hotel in 2nd floor), breakfast not ready in time, some maintenance issues took too long to be resolved.

                      Excellent location. Excellent staff at recepetion and the breakfast room.

                      Rooms were a bit cold in this high-ceilinged old palazzo (it was February to be fair).
