6/10 Good

Hotel przy Piazza Duomo
Wybraliśmy ten hotel ze względu na jego doskonałą lokalizację, przy pięknym Piazza Duomo , w sercu miasta. Lekkim rozczarowaniem był fakt, że dostaliśmy pokój na ostatnim piętrze ( bez windy ! ), bez balkoniku , zaledwie z niewielkim oknem wychodzącym na plac. Ale widok i tak nas zachwycał. Pokój był klimatyzowany, wyposażenie standardowe, łazience przydałoby się odświeżenie. Klucz dostaliśmy dopiero o 14, pomimo adnotacji o dostępności od 13:30. Niemiłe wrażenie sprawia brudna markiza przy głównym wejściu.

10/10 Exceptional

Easy check-in, great location in Piazza Duomo, yummy restaurants nearby and attractions within a 20 min walk. My single room had toiletries, towels, breakfast included w/choice of regular or sicilian breakfast 7-10am, lobby always open and very nice desk clerk, guests allowed leaving passport (pick it up on way out), have to leave key in lobby when going out, pick it up on your way to your room (IMO a good safety practice). The public beach is a bit dangerous to get to by foot. Kinda chilly at night (February), maybe need an extra blanket. I recommend this hotel.

2/10 Poor

Most awful place I ever stayed
I booked two rooms with balconies. The hotel gave our rooms to other people and shoveled us into 2 arctic rooms. No applology at all. The guy told us he could give us money back and asked us to leave. It is night time in Catenia, Sicily. There is no elevators. The guy did not allow my husband to park the car in front of the hotel so he could carry out luggage to 4th floor. The staff said that he would carry everything up. End up he only carried 2 suitcases. He forced me and my daughter each to carry one suitcase to 4rh floor. The room is terrible. Everything smell very bad,the mattresses, the chairs, the pillows, the beddings. The whole rooms smell like men's locker room. I have to use t-shirts to cover each pillow so we can sleep. After two nights, the t-shirts and our PJs all smell terrible.The bathroom is awful. Everything is loose and seems going to break in any second. The towels are just some very thin rags. The so called "full breakfast" is just one croissant and one coffee in a cafe across the square. rates it 3 star. All other web booking sites rate it only 2 stars. I feel it is much worse than motels in north America.

8/10 Very good

Location was great with a room overlooking the square. Unfortunately at around 4am each morning, the city cleaner cleans the square with an leaf blower for around an hour!

6/10 Good

Perfect location
The location for this hotel couldn’t be better, it’s right on the Puazza Duomo.10 minutes walk from the ferry station and a good 15 to 20 minute walk to the train station. The fellow who checked me in at night the fellow on the desk in the morning were nice. The breakfast is a sweet bun and coffee at a lovely patisserie across the Piazza. Everything was great except the room. It’s really depressing. Dark peach sponge painted walls with glitter. Old furniture and linens and towels. It has a rooming house feel about it. Definitely needs updating!
