Central location, spacious rooms, good air conditioning and wi-fi, the staff is very helpful. Carlo helped us with planning all of our day trips.
Needs a minibar. The bathroom is exclusively yours to use but it is located outside your room.
Beautiful and large room, no noise, perfect location right in the center of Catania (Via Etnea). The host family was extremly nice and helped in any possible way. It was by far the best stay ever and we just loved it. Very clean and save. We for sure will come back to Catania, just to stay at the Gattopardo House again. Best value in town. If you go to Catania, go to Gattopardo House! And I am usually very critical regarding hotels...
Can't think of anything I didn't like. Really! Also my 13 years old son loved it (WiFi worked perfectly, ha ha)
The building itself is really beautiful, and it's located on a very nice spot in the city centre. It's great you can rent such a classy room at this rate.
Nothing, it was perfect!
I have lived in many countries and traveled to many places, yet only in Sicily and in Campania you can find places like this. A stunning apartment with handmade affreschi and other breath taking decorations in an apparently "normal" building.These are lands full of hidden treasures and this place is one of them.
Perfect. However for the breakfast it could make a deal with one of the two historical pasticcerie in Via Etnea, instead of the expensive and not do good bar used at the moment.
Carlo and family/staff provided us (family with child) excellent facilities including a spotless room for us to share, beds that felt they've never been slept in (very comfy), enough room inside with tv, desk, chair, bag facilities, wifi; separate bathroom (bit small) clean and great water pressure etc; access to kitchen, dining, sitting rooms and clothes line (no wash machine) but Carlo did welcome us upon arrival and advise us around including useful advice about Catania & surrounds. Thank you for your exceptional professionalism in service.
No self service wash machine close by but found Hydro Wash about 15min walk away, lady there was great too.
great location and very nice decor and atmosphere
The place was lovely and quirky and Carlo a great host, very helpful.
Best value in Sicily. Quiet, tidy, efficiently managed guest house, in a magnificently restored baroque palace, with an unbeatable location just off Via Etnea a few blocks from the Piazza Duomo, the fish market, etc. Discrete, english-speaking management; will keep your bags at check out so you can enjoy the city for a few more hours. For breakfast, skip the voucher offered by the hotel, instead head down to Caffe Prestipino off the Piazza Universita - the quintessential old time Sicilian pasticcheria. We took a room with a spacious shower and window onto Via Etnea. To mix with actual Italians, grab aperittivo and/or dinner at the urbane, but laid back, Bar Glamour on nearby Via Carcaci. For an aperol spritz and munchies, Bar Savia or Pasticherria Spinella, farther north on Via Etnea, are popular locally and great for people watching. Enjoy!
Central location and very helpful staff.
Lot of space, high ceilings, excellent interior decors, excellent location. Very good value for money.
Private bathroom not directly connected to the room... but that's was the deal!
The staff was very helpful and the location was pretty good.
My bed was a little uncomfortable, but I prefer firmer mattresses.
Front of house family were helpful in all ways, especially regarding places to visit, map locations, bus and train information. Reasonably priced for location. Old fashioned charm of non-glitzy but charming retro-palazzo style.
i liked the location
the bathroom was outside the room. the style of the room was not victorian as i thougt it would be.
Location, Manager Mr.Carlo and his wife are nice people,
To much noise from street Etna but it is OK the windows are closed
Very centrally located hotel. I had one of the superior rooms with ensuite bathroom. Huge room looking out onto Via Etnea. Spotless. There's no breakfast- just go downstairs to the coffee bar on the corner.
We had a great time and Carlo and his wife were excellent hosts, nothing was to much trouble, thank you both. The hotel is in an excellent location and only a few minutes walk from most of the major attractions in downtown Catania. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable and even though the balconies (yes we had two!) overlooked Via Etnea the room was also very quiet. Highly recommended and we will be staying here again the next time we are in Catania.
what is not to like? Location excellent, room excellent and hosts were amazing!
Everything about Gattopardo was exceptional for the price: location, friendly proprietors and very very spacious rooms. Baroque architecture Catania would be one of the highlights in any Sicilian holiday and as soon as you walk into Gattopardo you are there.
big room; great decoration; excellent location; nice staff
no internal washroom
Very good location just in the main street, friendly staff.
Difficult to find car parking.
Heart of the centre but quite. Very helpfull and kind staff.
Very clean, very spacious, good quality windows and beautiful rooms and furniture. Very friendly owner.
Claudia 's parents were super-nice. We arrived very late at night and they stayed there and welcome us. Although the language problem, we had a good conversation with them and they were super helpful in providing us local knowledge.
Excellent location in the centre of Catania, very close to all highlights. Very friendly and helpful staff.
This hotel is located in the heart of Catania, very close to Cathedral and other sighseeings. The room and the bathroom were clean. Carlo, the owner, is a very nice and helpful person, who made my staying in Catania pleasant and safe. Free wi-fi is also a plus.
