Catania is a city on the central eastern coast of Sicily and has about 300,000 inhabitants. The metropolitan area is much bigger though, with roughly 750,000 people living here. It's located between Messina and Siracusa and at the foot of Mount Etna, the highest point on Sicily and an active volcano.

Made a reservation, made the prepayment; arrived there and realized they didn't book our room. I don't see how that's possible, especially when you make a prepayment! We were booked by the owners at a really poor nearby hotel for the same money but that's not what we asked for. Not recommended. ... more
Nice hotel near to main train station. Very polite stuff but with bad English ,but if I compare with outside world they were great. Standard breakfast menu. In overall I can offer this hotel - will be good choice. ... more
