This Hotel is located in the center of Catania with plenty if monuments, shops and restaurants in the close neighborhood.

The hotel has no fancy outside but on the inside it has the atmosphere of a traditional Italian Palace with marble, wood and classic furniture and decoration.

And even though perhaps a bit outdated, it serves the atmosphere well.

The hotel has a private inside parking that can be used free of charge as long as there is space - and space is limited - I estimate 5 cars at the most so better check twice.

The entry to the garage is in the street next to the one that has the main entrance. There is a big sign on the corner of that street saying “Katane Palage garage”
Whe you are there it needs hotel staff to sneak the car in because the entry is very very narrow ( if you rent a big car - too bad- it won’t fit. I had a peugeot 308 and it just fitted). When you arrive use the back entrance of the hotel and report that you have arrived at the reception. They will send someone to do the parking.

The reception area is small and connects with a corridor to the bar where there are numerous big fauteuils to sit. This us also where the entrance to the restaurant is.

You can go up by stairs or elevator. The room is spacy with again, a classic interior.
There is a minibar with 2x water and 2x soft drink, that are for free and that us refilled daily.

The room has a flatscreen tv - a nice desk, and a mini-safe.

The WiFi is free and was very fast when I stayed here ( must say hotel occupation was low )

The bathroom is classic as well with typical Italian marble but offers all you need.

Everything went smooth and staff was very friendly and helpful with directions etc.

The price was very attractive but December is clearly off season so it will differ in Summer.

When looking for a nice place in Catania center with a classic atmosphere this is a good pick!

The lobby, restaurant and rooms are adequately sized and appointed, and services are good. It does really matter, but an odd choice is that they furnish no glasses; just the cheapest, thinnest and most crinkly plastic cups imaginable. No noise from the outside but inside walls are paper-thin - I constantly heard a baby cry from down the hall, and phone cals from next door.

Nothing to complain about: nothing to get excited about. Room size ok but small shower room had that been added during an upgrade look. Menu perfectly adequate, as was buffet breakfast. Staff helpful.

Driving the streets of Catania can be a real challenge, however, finding parking is even more challenging. This nice, clean hotel offers free parking! I️ found that very rare in Italy and a huge plus! The room was spacious and the cost was very reasonable. I️ would definitely stay here again!
