Vintage Italian designed, tall beautiful doors , room ceiling painting, staff friendly and helpful. This place is right next to the Borgo metro station in Catania. If we return to Catania, we will definitely go back to Etnea suite 668

Catania on foot
Our stay was most enjoyable and the hospitality of the owner and her assistant was first class. The furnishings were somewhat dated, but perfectly clean and comfortable.The 20 minute walk into the old town centre might put some people off , but we liked it very much and enjoyed the experience. Parking was less than 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Friendly and helpful staff. Ideal location as hotel on main street and a walk walk into city centre. Rooms quiet despite the traffic outside. And air conditioned. Lovely decor. Breakfast included. Would go back ourselves and recommend to others planning a trip to Sicily/Catania.

6/10 Good

Quirky but comfortable
This is a quirky hotel, the room we had was old but has been properly modernised to make for a comfortable stay. One of the beds was a little too old and it certainly would not have been the place for a romantic trip away, unless you want the rest of the hotel to know about it! Generally though the room was good and even though it is on a busy road extremely quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast adequate and the hotel smart, comfortable and full of character. The only reason I would not rate the hotel higher is that it is a long way fron the key sites of Carania albeit they are easily reached by the regular local bus services.

6/10 Good

Downsides: Location - it's about 25-30 minutes walk from the main tourist sites and squares of Catania, so not very convenient if you're visiting as a tourist (better if you're up for figuring out buses - we did eventually but they're patchy on public holidays). Walls are quite thin, we heard a lot of noise from other guests. Upsides: Reception staff were friendly and spoke good English, they helped us book a taxi to the station. Building and rooms have a nice old character feel (ours had a very high ceiling). Fairly cheap relative to other hotels we looked at in Catania. But overall we'd prefer to spend a bit more and stay closer to the centre if we returned.

4/10 Fair

location location dont stay here on your vacation
firstly to say that neither my wife nor i have exacting standards when it comes to holiday accomodation- not snobbish at all. but: depressing location. couldn't open shutters 'cos of proximity to slum. usual uninterested reception (certainly you must not travel to sicily in search of human warmth, nor even much basic civility). 'palazzo' was probably, at some stage, not a profoundly ironic name for this buiilding. breakfast was only moderately poor. room was very clean (also something you CAN rely upon from sicilian accomodation. navigation to dead centre of town is easy - just straight down via etnea - and not too far (or TOO scary). in sum: this is not a hotel. it is poorly equipped, badly in need of refurbishment (it's so dark!) and anyway located in an area suitable only for a hostel (where punters younger than me might actually enjoy the rather basic grafitti tagging visible from their 'window', just across the escalator down to the metro
