Not a huge disadvantages but still it will be better to have a microwave in the kitchen, just to have possiblity of cook smth simple. And also - staff of the hotel are in the hotel not everytime - just by check-in and some other cases. For me it was ok - because I had a great and fast communication with personell of the hotel via email/sms, but maybe for old people, or people who need personal communication, or often advices of hotel staff -it could be a problem.
Ipnos was definitely one of my best choice of hotel ever! Before the arrival I was impressed with beautiful pictures of the hotel, but after arrival I was impressed even more! Hotel is located in very beautiful old style building, which is near the train station, smth like 10 minutes of slow walk with bags. So its good opportunity to save money on taxi - because on the train station you can catch bus or train almost to everywhere. Design of the hotel and rooms is amazing! Everything has an artist's touch!) My room (Room with The Sun:) was very huge with a lot of space and light,had fresco on the celling, very artistic decoration, huge windows and even balcony with the view to the sea. Bathroom was very modern, and also with a lot of space and light, and although it was located separately from room, which is not comfortable - but door of the bathroom was just in front of door of the room - so it was ok. You can use common kitchen (teapot, toaster, fridge - but not oven or microwave)-which is very useful too. Staff of the hotel are very nice and ready to help in every problem, or help with booking of tour or other things. So, I can advice this place to everyone, especially for people who appreciate art, and who want to stay in really unique and special place. For me it's the only place where are will stay during my next visit of Catania!
