The rooms of the hotel are elegant and clean. Good wifi in the room and lobby. Especially the hotel's crew who gave us great advices and helped us. Special thanks to Bruno from the crew who did above and beyond for us!

Pleasantly suprised by this hotel. Reception staff very helpful and polite. The room (101) was excellent, clean and with a balcony that was at least the size of the room we were in. Breakfast on the roof top was enjoyable. the only down side was the service at breakfast, not quite the 4 star we were expecting. Having to ask...

The hotel itself was comfortable and modern, if impersonal. The location, however, was very disappointing. Our room "with a view" overlooked a main road, which was so noisy that the balcony was useless. The sea view was apparent beyond the road (and the graffitied walls, wire fencing, litter, and a sad merry-go-round. A well-known American fast food emporium was the...

Nicely renovated hotel with comfortable and well-equipped rooms and helpful staff and with a wonderful rooftop breakfast room. Although the hotel is located a bit further away from downtown, it is situated along the coastline with wonderful view to the sea.

The hotel was very nice but Bruno who works the front desk really made it great. He was so charming and informative! He joked with us and ended up sending us to a restaurant down the street called Andrews. It was the best dinner we had on our 14 day Italy trip! The people there were incredible! We told them...

This was my second stay in Catania so I decided to stay somewhere with a sea view. This hotel does have one but it's not exactly picturesque.
