    Good

    It is located near the city center. There is a free parking in the hotel

    The dinner was not so good, as expected.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. The facility was nicely decorated and was clean. The breakfast buffet was very nice. The patio was a wonderful place to relax, talk with friends, and have a beverage. The neighborhood looked run down, but after spending some time in Catania, the entire town was run down. The Katane Palace was one of the brighter spots in Catania. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    The restaurant's menu offered mostly fish dishes and the prices were very high. The pillows were hard.

    The hotel is central. The cleanliness was over the top. The staff; real service with a smile. We were on a B&B basis and still the breakfast was excellent.

    The street where the hotel is situated is really unpleasant to walk through. And the view out of our 3rd floor windows wasn't nice either.

    Hotel's surroundings are not very friendly - slums look...

    Superb

    The hotel is delivering what is promised in the description. It has rather good location for both - city tour and business purposes. The hotel provides city map and it is easy to find Katane Palace Hotel, if you decide to walk around city. Wi-Fi was working without any problems and it is for free.

    The facade of the hotel does not give any indication that this is 4 star hotel, which is good for business travelers. Such facade could be also for 2 star hotels. On the other side, the interior is OK.

    The cloystered garden where breakfast is served definitely is lovely. Considering how Catania can be a true parking hell, the availability of a free underground garage among the hotel facilities is also a plus. In terms of design and decor the hotel has an old fashioned feel, so it might not appeal to a younger, trendier crowd, but rooms and bathrooms have been renovated quite recently and everything is comfortable and working perfectly - including the free wi-fi.

    The breakfast selection was amazing and the staff were great at responding to our queries.

    The initial room we had smelt of cigarette smoke and so we asked to change.

    Fabulous

    Pleasant rooms and public area. Breakfast courtyard particularly nice even in cold weather due to glass walls. Staff park your car in underground car park for you.

    The hotel is just on the edge of the seedy side of town which might make single women uncomfortable though this may be true of much of Catania

    It is very far from the central stations and this must be described to the traveler...however the hotel is very nice and good service.

    I thought they were a very professional organisation. They were helpful, the breakfast was outstanding. The room was clean and warm. The water pressure in the shower was strong. It was close to the train station. Free wifi that worked every time you needed it.

    Large room. Near to the airport.

    The coffee in the morning was appalling.

  • 4.6
    Guest rating

    It was close to the beach, restaurants and cable car to Taormina.

    Too expensive (€150/night). Charged us for wifi which only worked in the hotel lobby and not in the room. Our room was supposed to be a superior room but was not really very nice in my opinion and it had a terrible view- quite disappointing really.

    Very good

    Like an oasis, in a not so upmarket part of town. Good sized room with balcony and large bathroom. Good breakfast in a room which lead off to a lovely inner courtyard. Friendly and helpful staff who were able to offer help with Etna tours and local restaurants.
