This is a large quiet hotel very well situated in Catania. It could be excellent except for the fact that there was no air conditioning and that breakfast, while served on a terrace with view on the roofs and surrounding churches, is simply continental. You should bring a frontal light if you want to read in bed. Does not deserve 4 stars.

We loved Catania, and the Hotel was very well situated to make access to the city easy. The breakfast is stupendous, absolutely stupendous. Of all the Hotels in Sicily and Rome that we stayed at this was the best. The only flaw was that the computer was down when it came to pay...and that was frustrating.

This hotel is a little gem in the middle of a very busy city. We stayed here the night before our flight home (7:40am) and the staff gladly arranged a car service for us for a 6am pick up. The hotel is about 15 minutes away from the airport and there were some great restaurants/bars close by. We ate at Via Coppola and had drinks at the Wine Bar. THe hotel is very funky - it was very different from the lobby to the hallway to the rooms. It was a great spot for us, the only downside is that the room was pretty hot and the AC wasn't working so we had to open the window. Since it is a college town, it is very loud on the streets until the early hours in the morning. Even with the windows closed it was pretty loud.

The small hotelis well located. Key staff are very knowledgable and helpful. The included breakfast was above average in variety and of high quality. The diner in the restaurant was a high point of our 6 weeks in Europe, in part due to the knowledge of Sociaslian wine and food by the senior water.

Hotel elegante e confortevole, vicinissimo ai principali monumenti della città e collegato perfettamente alla rete dei trasporti pubblici. Bellissima la vista, dalla terrazza del ristorante, sulla strada più 'barocca' di Catania, via Crociferi. Suggestivo anche il panorama dalla camera su piazza Duomo. Le camere, curate in ogni minimo dettaglio con molto gusto, sono dotate di ogni confort. Personale gentilissimo e qualificato, estremamente disponibile. Ottima la colazione.

First off, do not walk from the railway station to the hotel if you've got heavy bags. The walk will take a little while and it finishes with a very steep hill. Check in was quick and efficient, however the lift was not working and then 30 minutes later, all the power turned off for over an hour. Rooms are very nicely decorated. Large, comfortable and clean. World's smallest TV!!!! It's about a 12 inch LCD mounted on the wall opposite the bed. With the room so big, it makes it difficult to watch from bed - and the remote doesn't work from that distance. Nice breakfast in the function room. I would recommend this hotel, and easy enough to get to Catania Airport from here.

The room was excellent; comfortable, quiet and very clean. The decor was beautiful.We stayed in the Standard Double room, so I wonder how good the superior rooms are!! The staff at Reception could not have been more helpful. The Hotel was very central for all the places to visit. Everything was within a short walk, although the hotel is sited on quite a steep hill. My husband and I both look forward to staying at the Hotel Royal again next year.

Our favorite hotel for the entire trip, good food and service. We wished we were staying longer in Catania, a lively city. This hotel is very difficult to find, we searched for 30 minutes following signs that led nowhere. A nice gentleman from another hotel showed us the way. It was worth the trouble, a beautiful hotel and nice people.

Unfortunately our stay was extremely brief due to departure flight times but the staff were extremely accomodating in arranging for an early 07.00am snatched breakfast. The reception were helpfull in recomending some local restaurants in an area not blessed with a lot. We would have loved to have sat out on the roof terrace cocktail bar but the October weather was against us. It's in the university area so there are quite a few good looking bars around but there is a definite scent of strange tobbaco in the air. The trouble with young italians is their love affair with spray paint and the rather grim walls of the old town have been all but covered. The museum andthe roman remains look very unloved. OK for a stop over destination but an afternoon and evening just about does it unless you need a base for Etna and the eastern seaboard.

After holidaying around Europe and experiencing different levels of customer service it was such a relief to arrive at Hotel Royal and be provided the level of service you should receive as a customer. The staff were amazing and so very helpful. I highly recommend eating at their restaurant as the level of service is nothing like we have ever experienced from a hotels restaurant. If you are coming from catania train station you may want to get a taxi or bus as it is a long walk if you have luggage.

Hotel spettacolare,ci aspettavamo di trovare un vecchio hotel con mobili antichi, invece abbiamo trovato il capolavoro della tecnologia: c'è una centralina accanto al letto con la quale puoi comandare porte luci e finestre della stanza. La tv è piccola ma con le casse a fianco al letto e nel bagno collegate il discorso cambia...l'unico inconveniente è la piccola salita da fare a piedi per raggiungerlo, ma tutto sommato se dovessi ci ritornerei.

The location and price are OK. The rooms are nicely decorated. The gym was out of service. Breakfast was supposed to start at 7:15, but at 7:20 the employees were still outside smoking their cigarette, and the breakfast room closed. We walked in with them, nothing was ready, so we just left as we were in a hurry.
