No wifi in the room. No signal
Friendly staff, comfortable room. Free bottled water in the room fridge. Parking is 10 euros a night but well worth having as it is secured parking in high-walled area directly behind the hotel with access via electronic gate. About 15-20 minute walk from the Duomo up Via Etnea and only 5 minutes from Via Santa Filomena, a pedestriansed street full of restaurants.
Can be slightly noisy at breakfast if you want a lie-in as breakfast area is on the same floor between the rooms.
On Airport bus route and in good location. Comfortable room and adequate Sicilian breakfast. Some rooms face via Etnea so request side room if you want it a bit quieter. Secure car parking.
If travelling by car an easy and acessible loction given the variety of one way streets int he city - spacious parking lot and very secure.
Eyerything. In particular the nice staff. They forwarded our travel guide we forgot in the room to our next travel stop.
kind and hospitable owner and staff, location, facilities, fairly good breakfast , renovated rooms
Very central location at the Via Etnea, the main road of Catania. Spacious room.
Being located at the main road I expected it to be noisy from the street. Luckily my room was on the back side of the hotel, so the streetnoise wasn't very audible. However the rooms are not very soundproof. I could hear guests in other rooms, but it was even more annoying the housekeeping staff was very audible at seven in the morning. It seemed like they weren't even trying to keep it down, banging carts and talking loudly. Breakfast was pretty meager, and some of the products like the cake tasted stale. The staff was friendly though. The bathroom didn't have a lot of amenities and there may have been some issues with the sewage, cause it was smelly at times. And not necessarily bad, but a bit strange is that the closet had a wide variety of garment hangers, the ones you get when you buy clothes or pick up clothes from the dry cleaner. All in all I would rate this as a more luxurious hostel, not a four star hotel.
The hotel is situated on Catania's most vibrant street but at the quieter end. Our room looked out on to a side street and was quiet. The bathroom was of a good size with a spacious shower cubicle. The hotel's car park was secure and not difficult to find. Breakfast was perfectly adequate for Italian standards, i.e. plenty of choice of sweet pastries.
Front desk staff weren't overly friendly or welcoming.
The parking is not for free and the wifi is terrible
Wifi was not working for none of the 3 days we stayed there. Also the hotel for some unclear reason did not have an iron which we needed to iron a shirt as we were going to a wedding.
staff friendly Breakfast is ok clean.
place looks run down,compared to he pictures shown, needs a face life.
Private parking, good location of the hotel, great cappuccino!
Not fluent in English, hotel split into two separate buildings.
location is very good
the young lady at the reception was really kind and helpful close to the city center spacious bathroom
after the first night we had to change our room because of the walls thins like paper - we heard our neighours' every single peedrop landing... wifi unstable for breakfast we went to the supermarket to get some vegetables and salamis
Friendly Service and good location. Easy secure parking.
Great price (one third of what I paid in 2012); secure parking for the car; HUGE room
Parking expensive (€10); very meagre breakfast
Excellent location, very helpful staffs ,very clean they changed towels and beds everyday, sleepers were very good bonus, excellent room big with balcony and quite, had an excellent sleeps. Fridge in room was excellent idea but would also be helpful if there is coffee/tea facilities in rooms, cause especially at night it will be very handy..then it is more EXCELLENT value for money.
Nothing...and no doubt we'll recommend to our friends. Thanks to San Max....overall we had a great time!!
spacious room very helpful staff
Whilst it is a small hotel, it provided off road parking was well situated for the city center and provided everything required for our stay. This hotel was at a very attractive rate and everything considered, I would certainly recommend it.
Breakfast was extremely basic.
clean room typical Italian breakfast friendly staff - gave us the information about transport in Catania - how to get to the beach, information about trip to Etna and the current situation in Etna, free drinks in minibar 10-15 minutes to the Piazza Duomo, bus station nearby - bus to the airport (bus 457), buses to the lava beach (Aci Trezza, Aci Castello) We really recommend to visit the restaurant next to the hotel:-)
should use buses to the bus and railway station (Piazza Papa Giovanni, and the second one nearby the Piazza Duomo) - but we knew it before we came
The hotel is very central easy to find and staff are very helpful
There was nothing I didn't like
Location, staff, nice room, clean.
Breakfast includes a lot of unhealthy stuff like cake and only white bread. Some fruit would have been nice.
Large and comfy rooms. Private access a bonus.
Large rooms, space, being in the city but in a quiet zone, nice breakfast
