Central Location
Our main host Teresa was lovely and welcoming even when we arrived outside of the usual checkin hours. Overall the hotel is good value for money. The breakfast is something to be desired but at the price point it is fair!

The wifi does not work and hasn't worked for some time despite what is claimed. The young man that works in the afternoons is a bit rude while Stella is a pleasure.

I would recommend this hotel. It is very central, found in Via Etnea which is the main street. It is close to all shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The only downside is that the internet (Wifi) did not work from one of the rooms. However, we would definitely stay there again.
