Very Good 8.0
A nice hotel in a fabulous location. Our room looked right on to the Main Street but wasn't too noisy. Could have been more comfortable. Just one flat pillow per person. Staff were a little distant but pleasant. Would stay again for the great location and view of the street.

Great place near the heart of Catania
Great location off Via Etnea. The staff were very accommodating. Room was lovely and spacious. Only challenge was the bathroom down the hall. The bathroom was fine, it was just really hot and humid in there and if you need to dry your hair, you are better off asking if they have a separate hairdryer you can use in the room. All in all, I'd return. There's a great reasonably priced winebar/resto just across Etnea and a small pizzeria. Would recommend.

a unique and historical building
a unique place with lots of history and in a building that used to be 'old palace' style the way the rooms are arranged (all were connected like the palaces with these huge doors which have now been blocked off) and the paintings on the ceilings and walls are very nice. The downside is that you have to leave your room to go down the corridoor to the bathroom since they are not on-suite in the room bathrooms (as was the original design). but very friendly staff and great value for money and a great location
