                      The hotel had parking facility but it is not properly sign posted when you arrive

                      Too far from the city center to walk and you have to call for a pricy taxi.

                      The hotel is functional and the location is close to almost everything. The room is spacious and the sea view is a nice plus.

                      The third floor is a little noisy because of the roof garden bar positioned upstairs....the street traffic could be loud at times if you ask for a room with sea view.

                      Hotel and rooms interior equipment, cleanliness, polite personal

                      Hotel is located between two very living and noisy streets what is not possible to estimate from the hotel pictures. More expensive rooms with the "see sight" are more "noisy street sight"! The spa und wellness declared in the description has nothing to do with the see and hotel has no swimmingpool. So spa is some body care of course separately charged 20 eur. In the large area round Catania is no rock and sand beach, only special public see swimming places built on the rocks, also with special daily charge. So no direct free of charge swimming in the see!! First floor rooms on both hotel sides are unusable noisy with direct view on the streets. We demanded the room change from 1. floot to 3. floor. Sweet oriented breakfasts.

                      It is to far from city center and it is just one bus who passes at 1 hour and the taxi is very expensive

                      We were told on booking that our room had a view of Mount Etna. We were placed on the first floor looking out at some vacant land. If you strained you could see the tip of etna on a clear day. More worrying though was the pile of boards beneath our window which would not lock so anybody could easily have climbed into the room. We complained and were moved to the 3rd floor. We could see a bit better there but again the window didn't lock. A guy came with a screwdriver to fix it. Overall the staff were slow to respond to our complaint and not very friendly. The phone also wouldn't work and when I called and asked them about they said a colleague would revert to me but never did. The breakfast was not great. The location is well out of the town centre so it's only useful if you have a car. Overall it's not a bad hotel but it was overpriced.

                      Very helpful staff especially manager Fabio, an asset to the hotel, could not of done enough. Sushi bar in hotel was excellent too, with good cocktails. Clean spacious airconditioned rooms with spacious bathroom.

                      No private beach, busy main road outside, with self appointed parking attendants trying to collect money for free on street parking. Restaurant in hotel, while food was good and staff helpful, being charged a covering charge before you eat anything of €5 each seems a lot especially when your a hotel guest.

                      Good sized room and bathroom. Good choice at breakfast.

                      Parking in basement very tricky especially if you have a big car. Steep hill into carpark. Bathroom was needing attention. Mould on grouting. Not easy to find and if approaching it from the wrong side of the road not east to turn around. Need to cross the traffic on a very busy road.

                      Its location close to the city centre and by the beach. The spa was wonderful, nicely decorated and great staff.
