Very helpful staff and central location.
Marco and his staff were wonderful, helping us to get into the courtyard to park, finding sights in town, dinner in a local trattoria. His enthusiasm for Catania is contagious. We found the rest of the staff and his wife to also be very gracious and helpful.
Marco and all his team were very welcoming, charming and informative.The B&B was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious - I particularly liked the warm and scrumptious pastry that was served. Generally, the atmosphere was great and I would recommend Etnea316 to any of my friends who visit Catania.
The Hotel Etnea 316 is exactly as they advertise: budget friendly, clean, convenient location, but the people who welcome you and help you while you are there are the real reason that this hotel gets high ratings and a promise of a return the next time we visit Catania.
The friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable staff. They carry your luggage up and down the stairs and to your room. Comfy bed. Location. Breakfast, especially the delicious local pastry served warm each morning. 24 hour reception. Fridge in the room. That the owner is a fully qualified tour guide and you can book tours with him. Value for money. Attractive original features such as shutters, floor tiles & ceiling roses.
There is nothing we didn't like but we would have been nice to have two comfortable chairs in the room
Good location.Exellent staff.
It's a good space, the staff are extremely friendly and proactive. The rooms are beautiful.
Nothing. I think this place is brilliant value.
The staff was very helpful making our stay carefree. We felt comfortable and safe in our roomsThe location was perfect. We would definitely return to Hotel Etnea when in Catania.
Nothing to dislike at Hotel Etnea. The manager Marco and his staff speak impeccable english and are there to help you out, whether in excursions, where to shop or eat and even which bus to catch. Apart from that Marco is a walking encyclopedia and will even arrange excursions. The location is very central and the buffet breakfast is good and fresh. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to staying there again.
The rooms are beautiful and large enough for a family. The location is very good. Staff were very nice.
Breakfast was limited and staff were very busy so often had to leave to help guests check out.
too many mosquitoes to sleep well
Great staff Huge, renovated room Excellent bathroom Central location Very clean
Nothing - we wish we had more time in this great little town
Staff very helpful Marco very efficient. On arrival and departure carried our luggage up and down stairs Provided a good level of advice on area eg buss routes, places to visit.
Everything- Exactly Staff! Thanks Dear Gaetano and all "Hotel Etnea 316 " Staff.One day we will stay again at your Hotel.
Rooms are beautiful and large, part of an old mansion, I expect. Big windows look out on the street scene. Location is good for exploring. Staff were very helpful.
Parking was difficult in Catania. Limited choice for breakfast but it is a budget b & b.
Having stayed one night and one day (late check-out) there wasn't anything which we didn't like. Marco and his staff are really wonderful and helpful. Felt like staying with old friends.
Etnea 316 is located in the heart of the city and its Liberty style rooms and balconies overlook the Villa Bellini and Via Etnea. Clean, comfortable rooms with delicious breakfast. The staff made me feel at home and feel like a local. Their attention, along with the beautiful hotel, made my trip to Catania a real delight. Etnea 316 is now my go-to place to stay when I'm in Sicily
All the staff (we met Marco, Paola, Gaetano and Ravi) were very friendly and helpful. The building and furnishings were interesting and had great character and the location was excellent for exploring Catania on foot.
More fruit available at breakfast would have been nice. That's about the only criticism all I can think of.
the staff, and the location,and the price was fair for the city center
A very friendly team managing the hotel which is on the first floor ( staff will help with luggage). The rooms are quite large and comfortable. The common area is very relaxed and very comfortable to sit when you want to get out of your room. A big thanks to Marco who organised a tour of Catania and Mt Etna. His knowledge of the history of the region was amazing.
No wifi in my room. But I was very happy to sit in the common area with a drink to catch up on emails etc.
The helpful, friendly staff and the size of the room. The location was great. Transport close by, great arancinis on the corner and restaurants nearby. Marco and team were great hosts.
Breakfast menu was a bit limited if you are not use to eating pastries for breakfast and the shower was a tight squeeze.
Marco and his team are very warm and friendly willing to go that extra mile. Location within town great easy walking to all the places of interest. For those who are active and still want to do morning run or walk Villa Bellini across the road. Nice ans safe. Plenty of eateries within a short walk. Bar downstairs basic but very freindly . corner shop to the right on etna has drinks and small selection of foods.
nothing really. Bathroom shower a wee bit small. Sometimes strong water smell. Our room on the front so early morning waking with street sweepers.
Marco and the staff are very welcoming and we had a problem with our toilette seat ,after me telling them t was immediately fixed. Very helpful with tour info and bus info. It felt like a home away from home after oly two nights
Fantastic location, close to everything but the thing that stood out was the amazing staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to Marco and the team for making our stay so delightful
The staff at Hotel Etnea were so friendly and helpful. We really got a lot out of our trip with Marco to Mt Etna. He provided us with so much information on not only Mt Etna but also on all the historical sites of Catania. He is an excellent guide. Our room was sooooo spacious. We felt really comfortable there. It's high ceilings and little details remained true to the era in which the building was erected which gave our stay a very authentic Sicilian feel. The location of the hotel was great. It was a straight walk down the beautiful Main Street past all of the great shops and cafes to the main squares, markets and bus terminal.
The wifi only works in the lounge area but that was not any major drawback for us. It may be for others though.
