Room was a nice size and it was clean. Steph was unfriendly and unhelpful. Also, shuttle bus was full when we needed it. We needed to get to the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning. That's why we stayed at the hotel! Had to take a taxi for $20 instead.
Good location. Generally pleasant and helpful staff. quick response from room service. Excellent potato and mushroom soup in the restaurant!!. Except for the bathroom safety issue, the room was good and when no opener was available for the minibar, one was quickly supplied along with the room service. We had a great view of Etna from our room that afternoon--an unexpected plus after spending ten days in other parts of Sicily. Downgraded you on "facilities" primarily on the safety issue. Like all European hotels, no one seems to make it easy for older people to get in and out of the shower/tub safely. Besides the wall bar, there are hold bars that fasten to the edge of a tub which are helpful in getting out. I have seen some here in the US, don't think I saw any in European hotels. Also square toilet seat was a surprise--we even took a photo because we had never seen such before--but I don't find that it is very comfortable to sit on!
Room spacious and clean. Close to airport. Shuttle pickup slow. Seem to run the shuttle hourly. So close to the airport it could be as needed or, at least, twice per hour.
Room was large and clean but next to some staff room at the very end of the hall downstairs so could hear loud talking. The location is good for travelers having to fly in and out of Catania airport. The hotel has a shuttle for 5 Euros. At a minimum coffee or tea should be provided for guests no matter even if they paid less than another guest. The hotel is not near restaurants and cafes so you would have to leave the hotel to go to a cafe.
nice room ,very clean with a good view there was aproblem with the aircondition and TV but help came quick
It is very centrally located
in the middle of the city - on the shopping street and close by the nicest buildings, squares - view on Etna AND Dom
Clean and elegant hotel right on Via Etnea.
Location is close to train station and city centre Location is terrible at night although convenient by day.
Location to rail station, price, internet In a very hard to find location, not suitable for women (safety) Aircon did not work during stay, room safe did not work, no breakfast staff to assist.
Very attractive, comfortable room; friendly staff; The neighborhood around the hotel was kind of slummy; we never found "the sunny, yellow piazza" that was mentioned on the website. The hotel had obviously been remodeled, but the location is less than desirable.
staff was knowledgable and friendly
Other than near Station, not a particularily good location. But very reasonably priced for area, and very good rooms.
I love this hotel: my room was very large and comfortable, the hotel is positioned very close the city center and all the staff was kind and competent. nothing, all was excellent
It is close to shopping area. 1- location . 2- no facilities
Parking within hotel grounds, friendly staff The area of Catania - I would not return to Catania
I appreciated a lot the beautifull room: large, with fine fornitures and, overall, a ceiling with original decoration. The staff (Simona and her collegues) was very efficient and polite. If I'll come back to Catania I'll choose Manganelli Palace again
Very helpful staff available 24 hours. Very quiet given position of our room overlooking a main road. Very safe and secure. Many hotels in same price bracket probably wouldn't compete. Controlling the air conditioning overnight
location and character of rooms
Great accomodation, centrally located with a great breakfast. The staff were lovely and very very helpful always. Would recommend and will stay again.
The staff was very helpful and our room was very nice I was disappointed that there was no jacuzzi in the suite as promised. That was the only reason we paid extra and there is not one. But overall the staff and the room were very nice.
Welcoming delightful staff and wonderful painted ceilings Cracked mirror in bedroom
Small hotel with very nice atmosphere. The rooms are beautifully decorated especially the sealings which are hand painted. Friendly staff. Difficult to find parking space
Staff very helpful and friendly. Quite central. They should try to increase in parking facility. If you don't have where to park, then it is impossible to find a parking space in the streets. For a Hotel, with very few parking spaces, located on the 2nd Floor, a small lift, the Hotel is rather expensive. Prices are like a 4 star Hotel in other Italian Cities.
We really liked Manganelli Palace. The central location was perfect to walk around Catania and to take the bus to Aci Castello. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our room was big with a decoratively painted ceiling. The bathroom was modern and very clean. But what it really made this place outstanding was the staff: Simona, Dario and Danilo. Kind and extremely pleasant, they helped us fully with our travel nightmares (BA and Alitalia), thank you all! We highly recommend this hotel to everyone in search of affordable luxury and individual courtesy.
The hotel is in general nice, namely the garden and the swiming pool. It's located near the beach, although it's on the other side of the road (no direct connection); The hotel is in front of a noisy road; the employees are nice in general but need a little bit more of organisation; we found the bedroom small for one couple and one child
The location close to the airport and the nice room
Rooms were very clean and good size Lower your food and beverage prices. We stayed at this hotel due to the location of the closeness to the airport. Also taxi that was hired from your hotel was an outrageous price for a five minute drive to the airport. Hotel should provide a shuttle to the airport as it is so close.
The pool was in excellent settings and very ease to enter if one is elderly. The food and service also excellent when we dined in the evening and the atmosphere was lovely. The hotel itself is a little shabby and too drab for a mediterranean seaside resort, it could do with a nice light uplift. Apart from that we enjoyed our two day stay. A little more care on the cleanliness in general
Pool. Still no fitness center. I stayed for a week and breakfast was the same every morning. Overpriced menu.
* REstruant made some good food (pasta at least). * Close to airport if yo on you way home (But is is not reaally possible to work to airport even it is only 2 km away). * Rooms to small! * Resturant service limited (only from 20 o clock in the evning, hence ,ot good for famillies with small childeren). Limited selection for room service! PRICY prices!
Spacious room, clean and nice bathroom. Nice staff (Alfredo) ! Modern and nice pool, great breakfast, lots of choice. The hotel is about 5 min. from the city centre. There is a hotel shuttle, but the shuttle doesn't drive frequently. Drinks and food are pretty expensive in the hotel, glas of soda eur 4,-.
Near to the airport, nice green garden oasis in the town. This hotel is too far from 5 stars.
cleanliness and the pool
Double room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety including hot food and fresh fruit.The hotel staff were very helpful. The hotel has a superb swimming pool and offers access passes to the adjoining beach. It also operates a complimentary airport and city centre shuttle. Free WIFI is available in all the rooms. The hotel restaurant meals were excellent and reasonably priced. Parking provided on the site. Have no complaints about this hotel.
Da gentileza dos seus funcionários,do restaurante que é de facto muito bom além de oferecer um bom ambiente num pátio acolhedor. Reduzir ou eliminar o ruido dos ventiladores do A.C. no último piso.
Conforto do quarto. Atendimento poderia ser mais amigável.
Staff is excellent. Price is very good. I will come back again.
We were in honeymoon and receptionist upgrade us to a suit.Staff is very helpfull and friendliness. Location is center and walk distance to many places. Smell of the room, Ac is not working proparly. Internet is expensive.
location in center of catania
I liked most the comfort of the room especialy the use of the air conditon,and the tideness of the beds.and next time i will be visiting Catania again I will book overethere.
The location is excellent and the staff were so helpful and obliging. The cleanliness both of the room and the common areas was extremely good - better than in a number of 5 star hotels around Europe i stayed in.
The staff were very helpfull Nothing
the bed as to hard
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast, featuring both hot and cold items, breads, cornetti, cakes, champagne, and juices was not only delicious but the best that we have had in Italy. The room was clean, modern with comfortable beds. The location was ideal - right on the main shopping street of Catania and only 5-10 minute walk to the Duomo. The hotel is also very near the main open market selling fresh vegetables, fruit, bread, meat, and clothes. We stayed at the hotel in February. The temperature of the room was preset to 26 degrees Celsius. It was a little bit on the warm side. Although we tried to change the thermostat, it always reverted back to 26 degrees. This is only a minor complaint however as everything else about the hotel is perfect.
The location of the hotel was good, it is on the main street and near restaurants. The bus to the Airport is just outside the door and cost only 1euro, so dont bother with a taxi. The staff could have been more helpful. we went upstairs to the roof bar on our first night and were charged €8 each for a drink, there was a buffet set out, but none of the staff bothered to tell us that if we paid one euro extra we could have had the buffet included. The reception staff didnt seem to know much about the Mt Etna tours, they werent able to book one for us, yet when we rang the tour operator from our room, we were able to get it straight away. The lobby of the hotel was always very quiet, very few people around, a strange feeling.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Ótimas instalações, com muito boa manutenção e bons serviços.
Os funcionários da recepção foram extraordinários. Mt amáveis, solicitos e inteligentes na seleção do que mais nos convinha. O hotel está mt bem situado para quem quer conhecer a cidade e os arredores. Os quartos são óptimos, o pequeno-almoço excelente e o pessoal 5 estrelas.
gostei muito do pequeno almoço na varanda, dos empregados do hotel e dos lindos quartos acho que o hotel não tem que alugar para festas ou casamento salas que fiquem no mesmo piso dos quartos.
Por favor escreva pelo menos 15 palavras
A localização é boa...perto do Duomo e alguns restaurantes bons em tôrno dêle...a vista é muito bonita se conseguir um quarto que tenha a visão lateral do mar. o atendimento do pessoal da recepção deixa a desejar...alguns falam só o italiano e acho que alem do ingles deveriam falar tambem espanhol.
A localização e centralidade bem como o conforto do hotel
Funcionários atenciosos, prestativos e simpáticos. Quartos confortáveis, limpos, bonitos e bem arrumados. Recomendo!
Localização excelente. Bom pequeno almoço.
Do estilo Liberty (muito coerente): hall da entrada e quarto lindos!!! Da simpatia dos funcionários.
O quarto amplo bem decorado com comforto,e atendimento com gentis funcionarios a internet é boa O box para o banho destoa das instalações é apertado e é desagradavel o banho por toda hora se esbarra no controle da agua e acaba desligando a ducha
O serviço é de primeira. Os atendentes são ótimos e foram muito agradáveis e parecem amigos de muito tempo. Não gostei da localização. A rua à noite me pareceu muito escura e abandonada. Seria bom que o hotel trabalhasse junto à prefeitura para tornar a rua do hotel mais clara e com aparecencia de mais segura.
The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean. I would whole-heartedly recommend the Hotel Etnea 316 to anyone thinking of visiting Carania. Also, take the guided tour that Marco does, it was terrific. The shower is small. Like barely large enough to be usable small. However, this is Europe, and it's to be expected.
Funcionarios. Pessima localizaçao.
A localização central. A placa com nome é quase imperceptivel, só se enxerga em frente a ela.A região é de imigrantes que inclusive não falam italiano e não ajudam a encontrar o hotel.
The Hotel is central and clean everytime I take a shower the water was cold. We were 2 in the room and only 1 of us had a hot shower.
The location is central to many spots in Catania and the rooms are adequate for the price. Internet was free but, not unlimited as a key had to be obtained every other day. Staff does not speak English and did not go out of their way to make any accommodations, communication overall was poor and there were last minute shuffling of rooms which, was annoying. Staff seems to be unclear on some basic pricing policies set out in rules set by their 3rd party booking agencies.
The room was big and wonderful, with the fresco painting on the roof. The balcony was over a crowdy street, with people, cars and motorbykes all day long passing by, coming and going from the nearby market, but when we closed the window, it was so calm, we could sleep without any problem. Everything was very clean and functionnal.The location is great, near the center, with many restaurants and places to go, but also just in front of the hotel there is a bus stop where you can take directly the shuttle to the airport. It's a little mess for arriving to the room. First you take the lift to the 1st floor; there you take your key, later you climb up and down several flights of stairs; later a corridor to the room... it's because of how is made the hotel within the structure of an old building, but it's foolness, anyway. The breakfast was not included and it costed 5 €!. The prize I think is too much, bat you cannot find better prizes in Catania, as I could check...
The hotel has some rooms with beautifully decorated ceilings and our room was quiet, which we had asked for, and looked over a very pleasant courtyard. There were also good views of Etna from the breakfast room balcony.
Very convenient position and the rooms at the back very quiet.
Central location, good for shopping, quiet hotel in a side street, staff was extremely nice and helpful, breakfast fairly basic consisting of just (but good) coffee and a selection of nice croissants Mosquitos in my bedroom so got mosquito repellent spray. Left shutters closed but window open at night, so didn't get any bites.
The hotel is clean and the room is comfortable. It is situated near the market.
To δωμάτιο ήταν άνετο και καθαρό. το προσωπικό του στην reception
