    This was business travel and the reception desk was not able or willing to add the business address on the receipt. It appeared to be an easy task but they refused as it appeared to be to troublesome for them. This is not normal considering the price of the rooms.

    Good

    Convenient location with beautifully quiet, extremely spacious room at the back. Free drinks in mini-bar. Large bathroom. Safe car park.

    Very, very meagre breakfast : I saw one woman look at what was on offer and refuse everything except a coffee! I have stayed in the same room four times. in 2009 it cost €49, this time it was €99 + €12 for the car park. The shower door still doesn't close despite my commenting on it every time I stay. There is a huge damp patch on the wall of the bedroom - this has grown twofold since 2011.

    Location is Ok, but house numbering at via Etnea is not contiguous, look map first :) Adequate service, simple breakfast.

    WiFi does not work at 1st floor, only at the lobby. Wired room internet has no use with iPad.

    Fabulous

    The hotel had a great location just about a kilometer from the historic center of Catania. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Parking (once we found it) was easy and adjacent to the hotel. Room was a good size, with two small balconies. Price was EXTREMELY economical for the size of the room and the location.

    While there were several small imperfections, they were quite easy to overlook given the LOW price of our room. The air conditioning in our room was quite weak, and only really began to cool the room down after we left and returned several hours later. We were put in the annex, which required a key to a second door and an old/small elevator to use, which was somewhat inconvenient given our amount of baggage, but not horrible. Parking was difficult to find (had to double park and ask the hotel staff), but once they explained it was really conveniently located. Breakfast was somewhat limited.

    The welcoming smile of Sign. Max on arrival and the service offered by the rest of the hotel staff is most gratifying.

    Really nothing. Espeacially the room and hotel security is not good. And the rate of taxi booking at hotel reception is very high for hotel to station.
