The Grande Albergo Maugeri Hotel is a 4-star Hotel in Acireale, Catania, Italy, located in the heart of this charming Medieval city of eastern Sicily, exactly halfway between Catania and Taormina and minutes away from the beautiful Parco Nazionale dell'Etna national park that extends on the slopes of Europe's biggest volcano. The famous pebble beaches on the Ionian Sea are just a 5-minute drive or a 10-minute bus ride from the Grande Albergo Maugeri.

The Hotel Grande Albergo Maugeri is easily reachable from anywhere on the island thanks to its excellent railway and highway connections. Tourists will appreciate the possibility of traveling for day trips or night-time walks to some of Eastern Sicily's best locations, such as Taormina, Catania, Syracuse and Messina, and will have the opportunity of parking their car in the hotel's private parking lot, which includes accessible parking. This luxury accommodation in Sicily boasts a total of 59 rooms and also has a restaurant and an American bar.

For lunch or dinner, Opera Prima features fine Italian dishes, such as pasta alla Vecchia Aci - a tasty pasta dish with eggplants, zucchini and pesto. Business travelers are also welcome and will have the opportunity of organizing conventions and seminars. The hotel's congress area with 5 meeting rooms can host up to 250 people, and are equipped with video projection, teleconference facilities and wireless Internet access. There's also a computer station, secretarial services and a technology helpdesk. For parents, babysitting/child care can be arranged (surcharge applies).

A pearl of Eastern Sicily!

Acireale is a lovely small city with a colorful history that is notable for its fine buildings and its magnificent views of the Ionian Sea. The Hotel Grande Albergo Maugeri is close to the Piazza del Duomo, that boasts an impressive Cathedral and the City Hall and is Acireale's most well known landmark. The nearby Basilica di San Sebastiano is considered a fine example of Sicilian baroque architecture and attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The city is famous for its Carnival celebrations, which are among the most spectacular in Sicily. If you feel like going on a shopping spree, the Corso that stretches close to the hotel is lined up with shops where you will be able to buy souvenirs as well as traditional clothing. Forget your diet and enjoy a granita (a semi-frozen dessert) or a cassata, Sicily's iconic dessert, in one of the many bars and pastry shops!

Perfect for an Etna visit, 10 minutes bus to the seaside, the hotel is in the city centre. Helpful staff about public transport to Catania or the seaside.

The hotel is in an ideal location of Acireale, just up for the Corso or main shopping street, right onto a wonderful Piazza. The room was large, great comfort climate controls for a Sicilian hotel, comfortable beds and nicely equipped bathroom. The only disappointment was a late night event one evening. The room was large and comfortable for a family of four plus a baby! Breakfast was not great, breads and rolls weren't fresh but who cares when there are several great bars just within a 100 steps!

I really enjoyed my vacation in Sicily and I spent a great time in Acireale. I loved the breakfast in the hotel and its central position.
