    Not at all good value for money. Poor/cold/rude service. The decor of our room was old and tired. Neither the aircon or tv in the room worked. The hotel bar was closed the two times we tried to get a drink there, at 16:00 and 22:00.

    The breakfast was cold & the staff not at all helpful. There needs to be senza glutine added to the menu. Staff were lovely at reception but it is in a noisy people traffic area with noise down the lane at all hrs. The aircon had a timer on it which went on & off all night without being able to fix it. I had a phone call after midnight waking me to ask if I had made 2 bookings, surely they could have asked thst at checkin. All in all not a great experience

    the staff try really hard but we found them to be pretty unhelpful and at times rude - we don’t like being in the middle of a conversation with a member of reception and having the phone answered. wifi connection poor in some rooms and in the basement where breakfast is. had to call someone from reception 4 times to come fix the air-conditioning unit which was stuck on 26 degrees in the middle of summer. we kept being told someone was coming .... but they never turned up.

    room was quite spacious - comfortable bed and large bathroom. breakfast was good - plenty of options to choose from. cable channels - TV in english overseas is always a good thing!

    The breakfast is good; however we suggest to have more variety rather than offering the same items each day. Also, the hot dishes of the breakfast were not kept warm.

    Il Principe hotel has a great convenient location within short walking distance from Piazza Duomo and Via Etnea; yet it is situated in a quite area. This was a real benefit for us to participate during the feast of St’ Agata during February. Nearby convenience stores remain open during the night. The hotel’s decor is nice and clean, and the bedroom and bathroom are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. A mini bar is also available in the bedroom. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    The desk staff were not overly helpful (except for a Gabriel). On our return stay we were given a room with no only skylights and the air con had been switched to winter - so we could not cool it. We asked to be moved and they were reluctant because we had 'been in the room and they would have to clean it', they eventually moved us to a room with an opening window.

    Great hotel for easy access to the old square, the local food market (which is fabulous) and some main sites. Some good local restaurants close by.

    Reception staff (a woman) was the most arrogant and unprofessional person we ever met in more the 20 years travelling. DO NOT PAY upfront for your room! I warn you to first ask to check it. For the price we payed for a suite (which is only a large room) we could have rented a luxurious flat in Catania. The room was dark, the bathroom was very badly kept, lots of damaged equipment and overall the hotel needs urgent repairs/renewal. The staff at the bar were polite as some of them during the breakfast, which was also of poorest quality considering the price you pay: cold scrambled egg, cold rashers, fake mozzarella (tasted like gum), horrible coffee machine. Do ask for a separate dish and an espresso. Location is great if you like to be close to the centre, but be aware that it is loud (Italians party until late into the night) and if you have young children they'll hardly sleep. If you rented a car, big mistake, as getting to the hotel is horrible and there is no way to park. If you want to use the hotel service it's a hugely expensive EUR 15 per day and they simply park it on the road. All in all a huge disappointment and a huge waste of money. I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone unless I wish to make them a bad joke!

    The only lounge is the small reception area. An extra pillow and blanket would have been welcome --- it can be cold in early February ! The television only caters for Italian guests... the BBC World News is available, but no entertainment (films,etc), which would be welcome at the end of a busy day or when bad weather keeps one indoors. The new venue next door, SKALA, seems to attract lots of smokers.... walking past them to reach the Hotel was walking through smog, and the street littered with cigarette butts.

    A room at the back of the Hotel was far quieter than the very noisy front of the Hotel, where several bars party loudly into the early hours. The general décor is magnolia but pleasant. I hope to visit again next year.

    The bath was cold in the morning after 9. The plug in the bath didn't lift up and needed fixing - you had to use fingernails to get it out. The parking service consisted of some driver moving the hire cars to just along the street just around from a T junction where cars swing out, and the hotel taking no responsibility for any damage caused by parking. Another couple had their car damaged by the driver, and the hotel took no responsibility for this saying it was outside the hotel - they said it politely with a compassionate smile but....

    Nice looking hotel, pretty good sized room with a balcony. It had a good location.
