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.
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 staff were very helpfull Nothing
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.
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.
Staff is excellent. Price is very good. I will come back again.
location in center of catania
the bed as to hard
Friendly and helpful staff.
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.
Central location, friendly staff, great room.
Good central location with highly efficient and professional staff. A few problems re noise from nearby bars on the Saturday night!
Charmingly decorated, room spacious, staff friendly and helpful, location excellent.
Very friendly staff. Room excellent. Breakfast not too impressive - but italians don't do breakfast like brits.. Location fine for catania sightseeing etc. No. It was good and we would stay again. Really liked the place.
Excellent location, Luigi on the reception desk was exceptionally helpful and even arranged to send on the clothes I'd left to our next hotel in Taormina! We were offered a choice of room and selected a small but well equipped and comfortable room with delightful french windows and balcony. We were on the side of the hotel and this turned out to be quiet. I'd advise you to avoid the front of the hotel at the weekend unless you are going to be out yourself partying late (it's a bit of a gathering place late on in the evening). The breakfast service was not replenished - we went there half an hour before it closed and it was pretty sparse to say the least, but the coffee and croissants were excellent. It's probably best to get their early. Our bathroom was a little on the snug side which may be a problem for some, but then we did have a choice of larger rooms had we wanted them.
Male front staff service was welcoming and more...
Professional, discreet and what any experienced traveller requires, Bravo! Personal, hotel tour guide, facilitator for ones movements around Catania: local consultant...social, cultural and business.
Very friendly staff, helpful and competent. Breakfast rich and good. Position of hotel is good and room was quiet. I am looking forward to spend my time once more in this hotel.
The staff was very skilled and able to improvise regarding parking and more. breakfirst fine too.
Beautifully situated in the centre of Cantania with very high standard of rooms
The room was elegant, well designed and extreamly comfortable. The price was dirt cheap for the quality of the hotel (89 euros). The Hotel Royal is on the same level as a 5 star Grand Hotel.
great room, modern facilities in a baroque style design, interesting design of the lobby, great terrace, friendly staff who knows English. a bit noisy due to the passing car, but totally worth the effort.
Central location (easy walking distance to historic centre, quiet at night), helpful staff, attractive building
staff breakfast was very poor and the hotel is rather dark inside.
High quality accomodation More pillows required.
Terrace bar was very nice and service there was good.
Good location; palatial rooms - great bar with fantastic views Too many electronic hotels on shower, lights, curtains etc that were very confusing and difficicult to use
Staff were very freindly and willing to help i.e. they provided me with a map of the town so I could squeeze in some shopping after allday meetings! :o) The decor in the hallway is a bit dark, I guess this could be romantic if travelling in a couple but as a lone Business traveller I always made a dash to my room!
The room was really beautiful and the buffet breakfast was great - lots of selection and the freshly made coffee really added something. Loved having it out on the terrace too! The bathrooms were also a really nice size and had a great shower. The people at the front desk definitely could have been a little friendlier at some points, and the most friendly one gave us all wrong information for the bus times.
Hotel royal is placed in the prettiest part of Catania. A walk away from piazza duomo and piazza universita and Etna st which has amazing shops. It's the best location in the best price and value for your money. The hotel has a beautiful design, each room is special, very helpful staff and awesome breakfast. We had such a great time and we felt like kings staying there :-)
The location the hotel is close to city centre anb walking diatance to many historical monuments, shops and restaurants.
Beautifully decorated in Italian furnishings and tapestries. Inability to control room temperature. Hotel policy is not to run the air conditioner in October, despite the fact that outside temperatures were in the high 70's/low 80's during our stay. Since the A/C was not running, there was little air circulation in the room. Opening the exterior windows overnight was not an option since outside road noises and barking dogs were not conducive for sleep.
Staff vrey helpfull, very nice,would stay again. no complaints
The rooms are very nice, I stayed there twice, and once they gave me a suite for the price of a standard double room, which is nice as well. The staff at the breakfast were extremely nice and the lady at the reception made a tremendous effort to make our stay more comfortable having a little child. The location is not so bad, as it is walking distance from the center, but the street itself doesn't look very nice. You park your car in the street and at the reception they did not explain very well that you could buy your parking tickets there. Consequently, we had a fine.
Stuff is really really friendly! It is my second time in this hotel.. And I am very content! The end of breakfast should be at 11..
The Liberty hotel has it all: great location close to the center of Catania, extremely helpful staff, and charming decor.
The staff was very helpful and the hotel and room were both very comfortable. The breakfast was also very good. Catania is not the most scenic city in the world and the outside view provided on the hotel's website gave a much more flattering impression of the hotel's immediate surroundings than actually is the case.
very beautiful and comfortable in details
The personel was very kind, very helpful. The breakfast is fine, our room (Junior Suite) was very beautifully decorated and comfortable, with a terrace. Very calm area.
The nice ambience, the cleanliness, the quieteness altough it's a hotel in the hart of a very busy city. And the - according to Italian standards - nice breakfast.
Lage, Service, Ausstattung
Great accomodation, centrally located with a great breakfast. The staff were lovely and very very helpful always. Would recommend and will stay again.
location and character of rooms
I appreciated a lot the beautifull room: large, with fine fornitures and, overall, a ceiling with original decoration. The staff (Simona and her collegues) was very efficient and polite. If I'll come back to Catania I'll choose Manganelli Palace again
Welcoming delightful staff and wonderful painted ceilings Cracked mirror in bedroom
Small hotel with very nice atmosphere. The rooms are beautifully decorated especially the sealings which are hand painted. Friendly staff. Difficult to find parking space
We really liked Manganelli Palace. The central location was perfect to walk around Catania and to take the bus to Aci Castello. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our room was big with a decoratively painted ceiling. The bathroom was modern and very clean. But what it really made this place outstanding was the staff: Simona, Dario and Danilo. Kind and extremely pleasant, they helped us fully with our travel nightmares (BA and Alitalia), thank you all! We highly recommend this hotel to everyone in search of affordable luxury and individual courtesy.
Very helpful staff available 24 hours. Very quiet given position of our room overlooking a main road. Very safe and secure. Many hotels in same price bracket probably wouldn't compete. Controlling the air conditioning overnight
The staff was very helpful and our room was very nice I was disappointed that there was no jacuzzi in the suite as promised. That was the only reason we paid extra and there is not one. But overall the staff and the room were very nice.
Parking within hotel grounds, friendly staff The area of Catania - I would not return to Catania
Staff very helpful and friendly. Quite central. They should try to increase in parking facility. If you don't have where to park, then it is impossible to find a parking space in the streets. For a Hotel, with very few parking spaces, located on the 2nd Floor, a small lift, the Hotel is rather expensive. Prices are like a 4 star Hotel in other Italian Cities.
Excellent location for sightseeing. Beds and pillow (self selection) excellent as were the bathroom and breakfast. Highly recommended.
I liked the style of the room, the English language channels on the TV, the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness of the room..
comfortable bed, good aircon, decent size room, large in-room safe, fridge poor breakfast,location, bland corporate decor, lack of tourist info.
Very helpful staff, good internet connection.
Parking was good. Staff very helpful and spoke good english.
no vegetables by breakfast
Clean and spacious room and bathroom. RIch, fresh and tasty breakfast (eggs, bacon, chees, toasts, croissant, sweets, variety of coffee, cereals, milk, juice, tea, fruits, etc.). Well decorated both, hotel itself and rooms. 15 min by walk away from Calcio Catania football stadium. Seemed as very calm and safe street and neighbourhood. Close to Bellini Park and Via Etnea (main street of the city). Extremely helpful and friendly staff except for one time when a lady refused to pack breakfast as we had to leave early morning for a tour. If you are in the neighbourhood, you will always find the hotel as there are signs and directions for it everywhere! Away from train station Catania Centrale. Quite distant by walk from Piazza Duomo (central square of the city). Otherwise a hotel with amazing service standards - would definately stay there if I visit again. Would recommend.
Perfect location -10 min.walk from the city center. Friendly staff. Excelent value for money. Quiet zone.
Clean environment & helpful staff. The spacious balcony could have a small table & 2/3 chairs outside. Also a canopy to ease the heat from the sun would have made it more comfortable.
we enjoyed our stay in hotel mediterraneo very central breakfast was very nice rooms confortable
Hotel management was very helpful and accommodating.Carla provided us with lots of information about eating out,shopping and places to visit Getting there was a little difficult if you arrive by boat as we did from Napoli.I requested directions via your website when booking however did not receive a reply as to how to find hotel from the port.
I arrived in the evening and left the next morning, and I'm still very sorry that I couldn't stay any longer. Not only Catania is an amazing city but also this B&B is on a perfect location in the centre! The rooms are clean, in a theme, made with taste, I felt immediately at home! The staff is very very kind, helpfull, they are just wonderful people! I would really recommend this B&B to any traveller, excellent time is guaranteed! Oh and a suggestion, don't forget to check out their site: www.cataniacitycenter.com, they also organize excursions to the Ethna!!
the hotel staff are very kind and helpful! They offered every help they can with my stay there, including picking me up from the airport (you will have to pay but still it's less than the taxi fare), giving me advice/info on my trip plans, making phone calls booking cars for me. Plus, the internet there is free of charge!! I liked my room which is decorated in tranditional sicilian style, and I have the bathroom basically to my own, free apples in the kitchen. In a word I really love it and would definitely stay there next time I visit! if there is anything then I would say the breakfast could be improved :) what we have in the breakfast selection are only bread and cereal and jams.
The staff, their suggestions, and the location. I didn't have anything I didn't like.
The personell are very friendly, extremely helpful. From the day of my booking they went out of their way to make me feel very welcome.
The exellent English speaking staff. Wirless Internet connection. Location close to the centrum and architecture places of interest. Noise in the street.
The staff are fantastic, they made us very welcome and the breakfast arrangements makes it easy to swap info with other guests.
Internet for free. Staff is very friendly, flexible and helpful.
hotel staff the place of the hotel itself - difficult to find
Central placed hotel, you can walk to nerly every place in the old town of Catania. The staff was very helpful and friendly
It was nice to stay at the hotel. Very kind hotel staff.
Excellent Hosts. Great location. Best Breakfast of the whole trip.
there was no breakfast
The friendly atmosphere. I felt like at home.
Professionalism and friendliness of the staff, attention to detail in design, availability of necessary information, range of additional services (such as Etn trip)
very nice place, newly renovated with a very cosy reception that also serves as kitchen and breakfast room
the staff was extremely friendly and we felt very welcome we haven't slept so well as whole night was noice from some water pump, although close to main tourist points in catania the near area does not look nice
The staff was awesome! The location was very central to all the great sights. The bus and train stations were only a short walk away. Great value for the money and I have already booked with them again!
The B&B is perfectly situated, 5 min walk from all the main sights. Rooms are spaciaous and quiet, the breakfast is excellent.
convenient location no elevator (when luggages are heavy)
great location on the piazza duomo, beside the fish market and at the foot of via etnea. you cannot get any more sicilian. only downside of the location is the noise of the adjacent streets since the piazza is very busy
Great location in the centre of Catania overlooking Plaza Duomo. Noisy during the day......not a problem as we weren't there! 3 mins walk to the bus station to/from the airport. Minor point - no kettle for hot beverages in the room.....is that common in Italy?
Central location. Booking.com incorrect appearance of the page.Taormina hostels appeared, it was only 43 km between the two place.No lift. Narrow corridors. Terrible traffic.
Hotel location was excellent, right in front of Duomo. Room was spacious. Staircase a bit difficult to manage with luggage. Luckily receptionist offered to have my luggage taken up.
Breakfast not served in hotel meagre choice. Dirty very small shower room. Very hard beds, pillows like bricks.
The location is great. The showers are too small.
Location was perfect for city sights and walks. Lack of breakfast in the hotel.
Its location. We were given a room on the very top and it was tiring as there were many steps to go up.
Staff spoke excellent English, recommended great places to visit and eat and made us feel very welcome. Good central location.
The management were very friendly and helpful; available to provide information on transport, trips etc. Do take up the offer of using the roof terrace as it is a great little suntrap and has some fantastic views. (Terrace itself is a basic area on the roof). Location is excellent. The style of the b&b is unusual and felt like a bizarre hostel. Rooms are functional. If you are seeking a more traditional b&/b or hotel style environment - this would not be the place for you. The building was originally once very ornate and decadent; now it is a bit shabby. I travelled alone and the timed light system was scary the first night as it doesn't give you enough time to get from one part of the hall to the next. That was frustrating. a couple of nights was ok. More than that (especially if you use Catania as a base for your travels around Sicily) and you might want to upgrade or skip to Taormina where there is a wider range of accommodation (albeit more costly) but it is still as easy to travel aroud from the same base.
I liked the helpful friendly host ad the spacious, clean bedroom and bathroom. There was free wifi connection if you have your own computer and cheap rates for the use of the hotel computer.
the rooms are big and comfertable. beutifull dezigen. the hospetality of Jan Lica- great! no
The room and the building were very authentical, like typical Italian.The room and bathroom are big, clean and pretty. The staff is very helpfull. The location is the best. In the center and quite.
