Great accomodation, centrally located with a great breakfast. The staff were lovely and very very helpful always. Would recommend and will stay again.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
location and character of rooms
Parking within hotel grounds, friendly staff The area of Catania - I would not return to Catania
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.
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
It's a small hotel near main shopping street Via Ethnea and very clean and cosy. We arrived in the dark and my first impression was, that the location is not so good, but I noticed that the hotel is closed and that only the guests can enter the lobby and the hotel itself. That gave me a reassuring feeling. In the morning, the picture was opposite; in front of the hotel is an open market till 1PM, but you don't hear the noise, when they are setting up the tables and stuff in the morning. The landlord was very nice and careful. As far as the breakfast is concernd, I liked the variety and the freshness of the food. And not to forget - they serve the real italian coffee at breakfast, which keeps you awake all day.
morning noise because of location above street market
The hotel is very central and the location is great. The staff are quite nice and helpful. All in all the hotel is clean. Surely will visit the hotel once again. Breakfast is set up quite early and so one has to wake up a bit early for breakfast.
it was cossy hotel with afishent stuff' very clean quite in the center of the towen waht eles can man wishb in a busy city. no budy new how to get ther ther is no mark on the enterance . no parkink place for the guest.
Nice large room, very friendly staff! The surroundings of the hotel building might be a bit putting you off at first, but when you enter the actual hotel on the first floor: what a surprise!!!
The hotel itself is very clean, modern and new, centrally located just off Via Etnea. Easy access to town. Very good value for money. Finding the hotel was a challenge, not signposted and situated on 1st floor. The street itself is dirty and riddled with market refuse, although it is quickly forgotten once you enter the hotel. Breakfast was very poor. Cleaning staff at the hotel were very friendly, sometimes more so than the receptionists themselves.
The hotel staff was very kind and always helpful. Room was new and clean and has a nice bathroom. The hotel has a good location at the city center. It was a little bit difficult to find the hotel on the street. Bigger hotel sign would help.
English speaking staff, central location, value for money Street market surrounding the hotel, noises during the night, lack of parking, hard to find, poor breakfast.
The hotel is located on a wonderful location, family, clean, comfortable, beautiful and surprisingly large room, rich breakfast... Great... Better than many 5 star hotels. For each recommendation!
Staff very helpful, and its location is very close to all the nighlife and sights Nothing
Central location, good for shopping, quiet hotel in a side street, staff was extremely nice and helpful, breakfast fairly basic consisting of just (but good) coffee and a selection of nice croissants Mosquitos in my bedroom so got mosquito repellent spray. Left shutters closed but window open at night, so didn't get any bites.
The Hotel is central and clean everytime I take a shower the water was cold. We were 2 in the room and only 1 of us had a hot shower.
To δωμάτιο ήταν άνετο και καθαρό. το προσωπικό του στην reception
Very convenient position and the rooms at the back very quiet.
The hotel is clean and the room is comfortable. It is situated near the market.
The location is central to many spots in Catania and the rooms are adequate for the price. Internet was free but, not unlimited as a key had to be obtained every other day. Staff does not speak English and did not go out of their way to make any accommodations, communication overall was poor and there were last minute shuffling of rooms which, was annoying. Staff seems to be unclear on some basic pricing policies set out in rules set by their 3rd party booking agencies.
The room was big and wonderful, with the fresco painting on the roof. The balcony was over a crowdy street, with people, cars and motorbykes all day long passing by, coming and going from the nearby market, but when we closed the window, it was so calm, we could sleep without any problem. Everything was very clean and functionnal.The location is great, near the center, with many restaurants and places to go, but also just in front of the hotel there is a bus stop where you can take directly the shuttle to the airport. It's a little mess for arriving to the room. First you take the lift to the 1st floor; there you take your key, later you climb up and down several flights of stairs; later a corridor to the room... it's because of how is made the hotel within the structure of an old building, but it's foolness, anyway. The breakfast was not included and it costed 5 €!. The prize I think is too much, bat you cannot find better prizes in Catania, as I could check...
The hotel has some rooms with beautifully decorated ceilings and our room was quiet, which we had asked for, and looked over a very pleasant courtyard. There were also good views of Etna from the breakfast room balcony.
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
Professionalism and friendliness of the staff, attention to detail in design, availability of necessary information, range of additional services (such as Etn trip)
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!
very nice place, newly renovated with a very cosy reception that also serves as kitchen and breakfast room
Excellent Hosts. Great location. Best Breakfast of the whole trip.
It was nice to stay at the hotel. Very kind hotel staff.
The friendly atmosphere. I felt like at home.
Central placed hotel, you can walk to nerly every place in the old town of Catania. The staff was very helpful and friendly
there was no breakfast
The B&B is perfectly situated, 5 min walk from all the main sights. Rooms are spaciaous and quiet, the breakfast is excellent.
the location is excellent, It is on the main road and very safe. The facility is too poor. The single room is as only a little bit bigger than the single bed. You even have no space to open your suitcase. The bed sheet is not standard white one, but very old, definitely no family will use that kind of bed sheet. The curtain is so thin and small that it can't cover the window, the outside can see everything through the curtain. The tower is not white one, looks dirty and ugly, I even dare to touch it.
Good location and nice staff. Too many.......
I very liked family atmosphere in the hotel, nice place in the center of Catania.For this price very good option. small breakfast - just only 2 crosiant (i usuallly eat on breakast much more :)
