We enjoyed it here and returned,We had a very similar room but on a higher floor, this time. The bedroom was very quiet. There is a gym but we always do so much walking from the station to the hotel and around Catania we are aways too tired to use it.
The room is big, with a sofa, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities and en-suite bathroom, with Bath, shower, bidet, toilet and sink.
The range of TV channels is great, many movies in English.The staff are very friendly and helpful.Breakfast is plentiful, machine for freshly squeezed orange juice, lots of fresh oranges in a big basket.fresh coffee on request and local granita, scrambled egg, bacon, lots of cake and pastries, yoghurt and fruit.The local bread rolls are delicious.
Around the corner there is a restaurant and a cafe selling hot pastries and great cakes, so we'd eat breakfast in the hotel, lunch out in Catania and supper in our room with a bottle of wine and snacks from the cafe.Shop around for a good deal, I checked the hotel's website and also got an offer for free welcoming drinks on arrival, I had to remind the staff, so had them on day 3 which was still fine.There are 2 elevators and we never had to wait long for one.The hotel sent me an email to check-in in advance to save time, this worked well. Hotel is immaculately clean. less

Thank you 223marianneg for your second visit and your very positive and detailed review. You highlighted many different details, including the availability of Sky Gold in all our rooms with a lot of free channels and movies also in Original Language. We are sorry we forgot to offer the welcome cocktail on the first day, but glad you had it a couple of day later. We also read you enjoyed our breakfast and our cleanness. So I hope we can wait for your 3rd reservation soon.
