The brand new hotel had interesting design.The staff was excellent, very helpful, speaking very good english. Also we had a great big bed and the room was always clean and every day we had clean towels. No fridge in the room
Brand new room, with whirlpool bath, fitted kitchen, huge bed, parking space in front of the room/mini flat. Quiet with the air condition. difficult to find the right direction to get there. Close to a motorway
The staff are friendly and helpful. There is no restaurant.
very nice rooms, very modern and clean the hotel is not very well located... out of acireale and far from the sea... you need the car all the time!
Very nice hotel with very friendly english speaking staff. Excellent value for money. There is just one thing - you should have a car to get there.
great small hotel with easy access to various places (taormina 30mn, etna 40mn,catania 20mn, syracusa 1h30,etc...) close to acireale town centre (10 mn walk to all restaurants,bars,etc...), we liked the small swimming pool :great for children, good breakfast , parking easy, very clean room and lots of bath products in bathroom. we had room 200, no noise, no signs of trains either.staff very friendly and helpful. no, a good hotel for families enjoying a quiet well looked after stay.
The hotel was relaxing , with a nice pool. The staff were not pushy. We could'nt use balaconies because of odour possibly drains
room - lovely. Bathroom (shower) huge
The restaurant is amazing! Such good value for money. Try their pizzas! Excellent breakfast buffet as well. Unfortunately they had a problem with the water when we got there, but this was fixed by the evening and they kept us updated. However, on the last night, the air-conditioning stopped working and when I mentioned it they didn't seem too bothered! But the rest of the service was excellent. Free parking and use of a pool :)
We like all aspects of the hotel other than its situation ,but that was not the hotels fault we had not realised that it was a long drive to find a beach Our only fault was the width of the single beds which are abot 3inches narrower than British and amazingly enough it makes a difference
the bed in our room was short
The Hotel is a small well run hotel. The only downside id the railway and main road that run alongside, which can be noisy when sitting beside the pool. This does not affect sleep as rooms are double glazed.
The bar and general friendliness of the staff Location, there is not much around it within walking distance
Breakfast, the room was very nice, sky was free
Lovely private pool. Very good restaurant and good food and service. Very helpful staff. Room quite small but adequate.
Room spacious and clean. Close to airport. Shuttle pickup slow. Seem to run the shuttle hourly. So close to the airport it could be as needed or, at least, twice per hour.
Good location. Generally pleasant and helpful staff. quick response from room service. Excellent potato and mushroom soup in the restaurant!!. Except for the bathroom safety issue, the room was good and when no opener was available for the minibar, one was quickly supplied along with the room service. We had a great view of Etna from our room that afternoon--an unexpected plus after spending ten days in other parts of Sicily. Downgraded you on "facilities" primarily on the safety issue. Like all European hotels, no one seems to make it easy for older people to get in and out of the shower/tub safely. Besides the wall bar, there are hold bars that fasten to the edge of a tub which are helpful in getting out. I have seen some here in the US, don't think I saw any in European hotels. Also square toilet seat was a surprise--we even took a photo because we had never seen such before--but I don't find that it is very comfortable to sit on!
Nice big room I did not like the fact that all companies kayak booking hotel com amoma publish one price and when you agree the price changes and ther is all ways a folse information that at the end you pay more from the publish price or you have to pay extras which are supposed to be included so please stop bloofing the customers
Room was large and clean but next to some staff room at the very end of the hall downstairs so could hear loud talking. The location is good for travelers having to fly in and out of Catania airport. The hotel has a shuttle for 5 Euros. At a minimum coffee or tea should be provided for guests no matter even if they paid less than another guest. The hotel is not near restaurants and cafes so you would have to leave the hotel to go to a cafe.
Room was a nice size and it was clean. Steph was unfriendly and unhelpful. Also, shuttle bus was full when we needed it. We needed to get to the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning. That's why we stayed at the hotel! Had to take a taxi for $20 instead.
The staff was very helpfull and kind It was modern and confortable, but quite simple
Nice hotel for first timers who want to be pretty much within walking distance of a lot of attractions. We always were greeted with a smile both coming and going. It was our anniversary and they offered us a bottle of champagne. The rooms were lovely, very comfortable and clean. We had breakfast with an instant omelette, although the breakfast was only continental style with a good assortment; fresh fruit, yogurts, good bread. Would definitely stay there again.
Very clean comfortable hotel in city centre with friendly, helpful staff. Parking at hotel was free, but the ramp to parking was very steep. Could be difficult for someone not used to driving standard transmission cars.
Comfortable bed and good atmosphere I would have liked more choice for breakfast.
If one is travelling by car I can be safeloy parked in their garage The way the television was fixed. When lying on the bed to watch the tv I had to look sideways as it was fixed by the side instead infront.
The staff were extreamly polite and helpful. They showed us every place on map that we wanted to visit. The breakfast was very good too.
The staff... air conditioning did not work!
God service med transport frem og tilbage fra byen. De ville være dejligt med en senere hjemtransport fra Catania, 19.45 er for tidligt. Flere forskellige valgmuligheder i Restaurenten
All-round professionelt og udmærket; uden at være helt fantastisk godt Nej, det er jeg ikke professionel nok til
The hotel concierge and restaurant manager were very friendly, excellent communication skills and hospitable. The hotel was clean and well facilitated. Did not like restaurant opening times; 20:00, wish there was some flexibility with this. The room stated sea view but faced a construction site, could barely see the sea.
Middle-class hotel in the outskirts of Catania. Swimming pool is filled with sea water, ortherwise ok, although cannot be used used after 18:00. Looks like the hotel is focussed on holiday groups, there is personnel to keep you enternained.The hotel is in the harbour of Capomulini, if you want to swim in the sea you will have to swim in the water of the harbour, where there is hardly any ship traffic just leisure boats. At the same time the restaurants in the harbour are good and fairly priced. Car parking is private, it is possible to leave the car in the shadow. Easy to get to Catania, to the Etna or to Taormina. Standard rooms are inferior then what you expect from a **** hotel. Breakfast buffet could offer wider variety.
The location, period. see above
Location is excellent - Staff very cordial and efficient - Comfort rooms - very good breakfast NA
1) the central placement of the hotel 2) in low season they can park your car themselves in the garage 1) the city itself is awful: very dirty, all walls and historic buildings are in graffity even fountain and main street, a lot of poor and dirty people on streets outside the 1 main walking road (so in the evening it's scary to walk). We ran away from this city on 3d day, although planed to stay for 5. The main reason to come here is Etna - that is fantastic. 2) the hotel itself is business-style one with old furniture with respective "old smell" in rooms. Think that it should be cheaper
Food in the restaurant was very good. Staff very helpful, courteous and friendly Our meal on thursday 21st was exactly the same as that on the wednesday although very good 20th. Howevber a word with reception ensured we had different menu friday and saturday which were bo9th excellent. some thought need sto be put into serviuce for guest who stay more than 1 night
Staff were very friendly and the food was very good
Friendly staff (although the barman was sometimes difficult to find) Some loud, brash Americans who were obviously on their tour of Europe, and thought they owned it.
Free internet in the room and free drinks in frig, very nice deco overall.
position for exploring
Good quality, clean and friendly staff. A bit pricy. Location not great (Catania is not great as well) but close to the center.
The breakfast and the dining area were lovely and the staff excellent. We are very comfortable in recommending it to others
Well appointed and tastefully furnished. Friendly staff on the whole. Excellent food and breakfast - beware of the gourmet dinner, it has 8 courses! Not a great location, being tucked away in side streets a fair walk from the city centre. Driving is impossible - allow 1 hour to get to the airport at busy times.
the bed as to hard
We were in honeymoon and receptionist upgrade us to a suit.Staff is very helpfull and friendliness. Location is center and walk distance to many places. Smell of the room, Ac is not working proparly. Internet is expensive.
Staff is excellent. Price is very good. I will come back again.
Friendly and helpful staff.
location in center of catania
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast, featuring both hot and cold items, breads, cornetti, cakes, champagne, and juices was not only delicious but the best that we have had in Italy. The room was clean, modern with comfortable beds. The location was ideal - right on the main shopping street of Catania and only 5-10 minute walk to the Duomo. The hotel is also very near the main open market selling fresh vegetables, fruit, bread, meat, and clothes. We stayed at the hotel in February. The temperature of the room was preset to 26 degrees Celsius. It was a little bit on the warm side. Although we tried to change the thermostat, it always reverted back to 26 degrees. This is only a minor complaint however as everything else about the hotel is perfect.
The staff were very helpfull Nothing
The location of the hotel was good, it is on the main street and near restaurants. The bus to the Airport is just outside the door and cost only 1euro, so dont bother with a taxi. The staff could have been more helpful. we went upstairs to the roof bar on our first night and were charged €8 each for a drink, there was a buffet set out, but none of the staff bothered to tell us that if we paid one euro extra we could have had the buffet included. The reception staff didnt seem to know much about the Mt Etna tours, they werent able to book one for us, yet when we rang the tour operator from our room, we were able to get it straight away. The lobby of the hotel was always very quiet, very few people around, a strange feeling.
The location is excellent and the staff were so helpful and obliging. The cleanliness both of the room and the common areas was extremely good - better than in a number of 5 star hotels around Europe i stayed in.
I liked most the comfort of the room especialy the use of the air conditon,and the tideness of the beds.and next time i will be visiting Catania again I will book overethere.
Signage along the roads directing us to the hotel was very helpful. The staff at breakfast were very helpful, and the person on reception was helpful. It was a bit dated.
The structure is really nice The rooms would require a refresh
the vuew from the balcony riom was beautiful. We were there out of season, but the pools looked very inviting. We did not want to drive into Acireale, so the walk into town was a bit nerve racking.
architecture is nice ,situation in orange plantage , landscape beach is relatevly far to go
Good standard. Restaurant good quality. Excellent base for Etna
The pool area Unfriendly staff. Building weird like something out of a horror movie
Good location quiet peacful, nice swimming pool and lovely surroundings None
It was beautiful...friendly service. Looked like a rennovated castle.
The hotel is in general nice, namely the garden and the swiming pool. It's located near the beach, although it's on the other side of the road (no direct connection); The hotel is in front of a noisy road; the employees are nice in general but need a little bit more of organisation; we found the bedroom small for one couple and one child
Double room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety including hot food and fresh fruit.The hotel staff were very helpful. The hotel has a superb swimming pool and offers access passes to the adjoining beach. It also operates a complimentary airport and city centre shuttle. Free WIFI is available in all the rooms. The hotel restaurant meals were excellent and reasonably priced. Parking provided on the site. Have no complaints about this hotel.
Spacious room, clean and nice bathroom. Nice staff (Alfredo) ! Modern and nice pool, great breakfast, lots of choice. The hotel is about 5 min. from the city centre. There is a hotel shuttle, but the shuttle doesn't drive frequently. Drinks and food are pretty expensive in the hotel, glas of soda eur 4,-.
* REstruant made some good food (pasta at least). * Close to airport if yo on you way home (But is is not reaally possible to work to airport even it is only 2 km away). * Rooms to small! * Resturant service limited (only from 20 o clock in the evning, hence ,ot good for famillies with small childeren). Limited selection for room service! PRICY prices!
Rooms were very clean and good size Lower your food and beverage prices. We stayed at this hotel due to the location of the closeness to the airport. Also taxi that was hired from your hotel was an outrageous price for a five minute drive to the airport. Hotel should provide a shuttle to the airport as it is so close.
Pool. Still no fitness center. I stayed for a week and breakfast was the same every morning. Overpriced menu.
cleanliness and the pool
The pool was in excellent settings and very ease to enter if one is elderly. The food and service also excellent when we dined in the evening and the atmosphere was lovely. The hotel itself is a little shabby and too drab for a mediterranean seaside resort, it could do with a nice light uplift. Apart from that we enjoyed our two day stay. A little more care on the cleanliness in general
The location close to the airport and the nice room
Near to the airport, nice green garden oasis in the town. This hotel is too far from 5 stars.
