We stayed at the San Max twice and found it to be clean comfortable and safe. The staff are so helpful and knowledgable . Do not be put off by the street as we found it to be without any problems at all. The location is really good with busses very close by. The town centre is a short walk...

Stayed here for 5 nights. It was its location that made me stay here and for good reasons. It has a bus stop 20 meters away from the hotel (where the airport bus also stops) and its located in one of the main streets (from where you can see all that there is to see on foot if you do...

I stayed here for a week and really enjoyed my stay. I was travelling alone but had booked a double room. The room was clean and comfortable. I expected more traffic noise but actually heard very little so no problems with that. Bathroom was nice. There is a safe in the room and also the wifi worked really well. The...

Because we are driving having protected parking is essential! The hotel has it. The staff was so very helpful in planning our touring and shopping. I want to especially mention the 15+ mps WiFi. It's the fastest we have had and so nice for keeping upmon USA news.

We stayed at this lovely hotel in February for four nights B&B at an amazing price of 170 Euros. We arrived on a Saturday and left the following Wednesday. Clean, spacious, good value. Breakfast was typically continental but filled a gap. Our room was at the front and expected to be disturbed but we weren't at all the double glazing...

I stayed at this hotel from 27th to 31st August, 2015. The location is the best it could be. There is the bus stop in front of the hotel, where you can catch the normal buses and also the bus that takes you to the airport. By walking, you are able to reach most of the touristic points of the...

Highly recommend this small, independent hotel. I was given a wonderful intro to the town by Max along with some tips on where to go and not go, since I had this one night on my own. I had a superior room, which was bit sparsely furnished and huge! High ceilings, comfortable bed, and a large terrace overlooking the interior...

Only stayed here for one night but in that time it was extremely clean, the staff were helpful and the room was extremely spacious. Situation in a busy street with lots of restaurants and shopping. Supermarket only a quick 2 min walk from the hotel.

Highly recommend San Max Hotel to anyone staying in Catania. Very spacious and clean accommodation in a really central location. The staff here are really friendly and helpful - we troubled them for advice on everything from early airport transfers, to requests to open wine (to enjoy on our little balcony!), to directions, etc etc and they were always friendly...
