We booked this hotel because we were arriving at Catania Airport in the evening and we had a car to hire and then didn't really want to travel at night. The hotel was perfect for this but I was also sorry that we hadn't allowed ourselves much time to enjoy the hotel and its facilities. The hotel does look like it is mainly used by business travellers or guests like ourselves who are moving on but it is located close to the beach and there are restaurants located along the beach road.
Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated but we were very disappointed to find that a wing of the hotel had no running water that night so we couldn't shower before dinner or use the toilets in the rooms. The hotel was apologetic but not prepared to reduce the price of the room and as this wasn't a budget hotel I felt that was not acceptable. Normal service was resumed the following morning and we were able to shower before breakfast.
Breakfast was very good. We sat on the terrace and had a choice of cooked and continental breakfast with cereals, juices and yoghurts as well as some wonderful assorted bread with cold meat and cheese.
So taking everything into consideration I did think the hotel was a good hotel but overpriced considering the inconvenience of no running water.More
