The most positive aspect of Villa Romeo was the excellent staff and convenience to the railway station. All the staff, without exception, were helpful, friendly and courteous. The most disappointing fact was the lack of wifi in the room. There was very little access to wifi in the whole hotel actually. Also, the breakfast was very poor; very little choice and very little of it.

Villa Romeo is convenient to the train station and is easily reached via a centro loop bus from the airport. The exterior belies the interior quality and atmosphere found inside the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Interior rooms have direct access to a beautiful courtyard, other guests access the courtyard via hallways. Breakfast is typical Italian. The only drawback may be the distance to typical tourist sites, but these are well within walking distance. This hotel is a good value and especially relaxing.

I have been to Catania five time during these last 18 years. This was the best lodging experience, also taking into consideration the reasonable rates that are charged. The charming, helpful and efficient staff, the hotel's vicinity to the autobus and railway stations, the breakfast items, and the venue's internal environment all combine to make it a more complete experience. A repeat holiday is very probable.

The staff of this hotel are incredible! I broke my hip the second day of my stay and the people at the hotel went out of their way to help via communications with my family and bringing luggage to the hospital twice. I had stayed there one night - the room was spacious, clean, breakfast good, and the staff already helpful at that point. I will always remember this hotel and how thoughtful and helpful they were. I recommend this hotel highly. PS The hotel has a courtyard with beautiful orchids.

Bathroom really dirty (the same in the room where stayed our friends). Room quite noisy as nearby is karaoke bar. Our room was interconnected with another one by (locked)wooden door - so we could hear every word from our neighbors. I must admit that breakfast was excellent:-) But 4 1/2 Tripadvisor points is really mistake (for money paid)

The Hotel Villa Romeo is situated at a distance of 2 – 3 mins by foot from the Central Railway Station of Catania and the bus depots (there are 3 bus depots with departures every half an hour or so to all the main cities in Sicily) , you can take a city bus from the Airport and get off at the last stop which is the railway station and easily get to the Hotel. It is about a 20-30 minute ride airport - hotel. The rooms very spotless clean and spacious and we had access to a terrace full of colourful flowers. Towels were changed and rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast had a sufficient variety. There was a terrace full of plants and flowers ( rarity in hotels in city centres!) even next to the breakfast hall, good for relax. When the bar is closed there is an automatic machine with coins for water and snacks. Mr. Carlo at the reception was really kind and helped us a lot with all the necessary info and timings we needed. In all our stay in Sicily we never came across such kindness and hospitality.

A nice clean hotel. However our room was very noisy at night and we would advise guests to ask for a room away from the main road. The directions to find it were excellent. We found it hard to find a good restaurant within walking distance. What a pity Catania is so spoiled by so much litter. Quite filthy. Our room was clean and spacious and the staff helpful and courteous.

The courtyard (which most of the rooms open into to) is wonderful. Breakfast limited, but OK. The location (by the train and bus station) is very convenient, but not charming. The hotel is a bit run down (e.g. neither the cooler nor the safety box in working condition). A hidden gem is a very good and inexpensive restaurant just around the corner, I Moschettieri on Via Marchese di Casalotto 11.

On our way into Catania we were robbed. The hotel staff were excellent at putting us at ease and went out of their way to help - even going with us to the Police station to file the report! We had to make numerous long distance calls to cancel credit cards, find out about new passports, reschedule flights,etc. but at check out the staff refused to have us pay for the phone calls due to our troubles. Catania is not a safe place but if you have to go, we would recommend Villa Romeo.

This is a lovely hotel and very close to the station. The room was small but it was a single so this was understandable- but it was scrupulously clean and well appointed. The breakfast and the room in which it was served were definitely above average. The staff on the whole were exceptionally helpful and coped wonderfully in helping me sort out a few issues with organising trips to several local attractions. The 30 mins free email was also a nice bonus since I found emailling in most places I stayed in Sicily quite expensive. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We really enjoyed our stay at hotel Villa Romeo. the hotel has a real charm and is not far from the historic centre, very near the station and this is very useful if we don't have a car ; if we have a car the station helps to find our way to the hotel , we don't have to cross the busy streets. The employees are very helpful and smiling . We stayed 4 nights there with a real pleasure. The breakfast buffet is great . The breakfast room looks on a patio with exotic trees , wonderful! if We go back to Sicilia We'll choose this hotel without hesitation.

As a woman travelling alone, the hotel was a pleasant surprise in an area that first appeared somewhat bleak, especially in rainy January. The location turned out to be perfectly fine, with the train station and bus depot a few short minutes away, and the popular market within walking distance. My room was surprisingly elegant and charming, and would've been cheap at twice the price (compared to N. Italy). Breakfast was also very good. My first taste of Sicily was in the evening, at the train station where the food was flying out of those trailers parked just outside...Fabulous and inexpensive eats!

We stayed for a couple of days at the end of May, everything was perfect: the breakfast, room service, cleanliness. The personnel was very friendly and competent. The location is good - the bus station and railway station are just around the corner. The attractions of Catania are within 10 minutes walk, the immediate surroundings are just ordinary buildings, so the very first impression might be a little confusing. We were happy there and recommend the hotel to others.

Our last night in Catania, the staff recommended the "primo piano" for dinner and it was the best food we had in all of Sicily! We were allowed to store our luggage at the hotel for several nights while we were traveling within Italy and the staff helped to make very early morning taxi arrangements for us to the airport.

The single room was a little small but had good sized bathroom, walls were a little thin! The double room was very spacious and well equipped.

Breakfast was fine - a lifesaver was the boiled eggs - overload of croissants / cake everywhere else. Would definitely stay again, Catania a very lively place.

The hostess was absolutely marvelous and very helpful. Parking was on the street but next to the hotel (free). Loved the property, Cantania traffic was impossible, but the hostess was simply amazing.

It was a nice stay. I asked about what to see here and was told what to see and that information was good. If I go back to Catania, I will stay there again. And having FoxNews in English (I'm an American) was great.
