Nice hotel right in the heart of Catania. Clean and comfortable but room not the most spacious, a little small, you wouldn't want to spend time in the room unless sleeping; No facilities of note, the smallest gym in the world (4 items) and no pool; Also WiFi is not free and is €6 an hour!! Nice roof terrace where we could get hot water to make tea as there is no such thing as a kettle, which would add something to the hotel if supplied; Overall decent, but think you are paying for the location more than anything else and with the price of the WiFi I would reccomend choosing other hotels in Catania as there is better;

1st time staying in Una Hotels.We were upgraded upon arrival to an executive room which was indeed very spacious. We were greeting at reception by Rita who was very efficient and was very welcoming and gave us a good feel for the city of Catania and the hotel. We ate in the hotel also which was also very enjoyable. We will stay in an Una hotel again.

Very considerate staff member on arrival - making the effort to speak slowly and simply so that I could practice my beginners Italian. I haven't had that in any other place that I have travelled within Italy. Very impressive hotel. Complicated if parking in the hotel car park - we had to ask a policeman to let us up the 'closed off road' then you take the first right (very narrow) then first left and will see the sign for parking.

i stayed in two rooms. the first faced a courtyard and was very quiet. the only problem was a shower area the use of which always flooded the bathroom floor. the second room faced the street. too noisy and the carpet was dirty and had wine stains. for the most part, i enjoyed my stay and would return. the location is perfect.

If the price fits your budget, there is no question that the right choice is Una Hotel Palace. After a long train ride from Naples, we were greeted in the evening with the absolute warmest of receptions. The staff was impeccable, cordial, and helpful above and beyond the call of duty. They assisted us in arranging for transportation, recommendations on nearby attractions and dining, and even coordinated a Mt. Etna excursion for us. Our room was enormous, spotless, comfortable, air-conditioned, and fully furnished with every amenity and then some. I was floored to step out on the patio late at night, turn my head toward the end of the street, and have a striking view of the lava erupting from Europe's most active volcano. The breakfast buffet here was top notch by comparison. I don't mean to sound like a salesman, but after long days of exploring the city and volcano we truly looked forward to returning to our room at Una Hotel Palace. We had no idea what to expect of Catania as a city for vacation purposes, but we found a great deal to do here. The hotel is central to so many sights and shopping that are easily accesible on foot. Be sure to visit the daily outdoor market and explore the Duomo, Anfiteatro Romano, and the Castello Ursino which was buried in 20 feet of lava. You absolutely must sign up for a Jeep tour of Mt.Etna where the guide will take you through recent lava fields, inside ancient calderas and lava tubes. We recommend the evening excursion which will allow an improved view of the active lava eruption. You will love Catania and you will without question enjoy Una Hotel Palace.

There were two problems: 1) a sauna is provided, the first time I requested usage it was heated and an excellent experience. The second time was a disaster, it wasn't heated when I wnted to use it and I was made to feel that it was my fault. The night desk clerk was very uncooperative with my request. He was on duty the morning we checked-out and agaain brought up the subject and said it was my fault! The second problem occurred when I ask the representative to make a restaurant reservation. He said he did, but when we got to the restaurant, no reservation was recorded, because the reppresentative hadn't given our name to the restaurant! Otherwise our stay was excellent.

I was very pleased with this new hotel! The rooms are beautiful and the service was spectacular. The rooftop garden was incredible. We had drinks and watched the smoke from mount Etna. A short walk to a beautiful plaza with great food. A cute shop near bye that sells small sculptures made of lava rock was a wonderful surprise. I will gladly stay here again!!!!!

Central location. Great room. Good breakfast (cold coffee). Only stayed for two nights, but overall impression was excellent. Room price was 110 euros/room/night, hence excellent quality/price comparison. At that price, would stay again. The only negative comment is that the coffee was cold in the morning (they leave the coffee in a thermos bottle and it quickly goes cold).

Éramos 3 amigos. Estuvimos en Catania 3 días al comienzo del viaje y la última noche(10 días después)la pasamos allí también ya que nos había encantado el hotel. No os perdais la Happy Hour en la terraza del hotel, 7ª planta rodeada de sillones y sofás donde poder tomar una copa al aire libre, con vistas increibles de la ciudad.La mejor relación calidad-precio de toda Sicilia (finales de agosto) 105 €/habitación triple incluido un desayuno bufett bastante bueno. Muy, muy,muy recomendable.
