Palace Catania | UNA Esperienze, Catania
By far the worst customer service we’ve ever experienced at a hotel. It began during our check-in with some confusion over the NOT free shuttle service. This alone would not have been enough to warrant a low rating; however, the front desk attendant was very rude during the process. Talking down to us like we were children and even scolding my wife about providing her passport. Apparently, she didn’t hand it to him fast enough for his liking. I tried addressing this treatment with the front desk the following day and was told: “well it was late at night and maybe he was just frustrated or tired.” Not quite the response you would expect. Also, breakfast included does not mean a full breakfast. If you want the full breakfast you will have to pay an additional 10 euro pp. Seems really petty if you ask me.

Everything was perfect except they had only one man who, sometimes, showed up as a bellhop. So, bags were a bit of a problem.

Excellent hotel. Outstanding customer service at check in. Rooms were oversized for Italy. View from the roof of Mt Erna was amazing. Best hotel for the money in Sicily.
