    The staff at Hotel Royal were incredibly helpful, kind and friendly. We stayed in a gorgeous room and the hotel is in a lovely quiet but central location

    Superb

    Splendid view over Catania until the Sea from our room. Great offer, and a good breakfast on the terrace in the morning.

    Air conditioning a bit loud in the room, switched it off anyway, so no issue.

    Superb

    Great location in the city center, nice hotel staff, never had any problems with anything. A decent breakfast buffet, given that Italians normally only have a very, very small breakfast.

    The room was a bit dark; one of the lights was not working, making it even darker. Not a major problem, just a bit strange. Also, the hallways to our room were quite dark.

    I cannot commend the staff highly enough. Helpful beyond the call of duty. The hotel is located perfectly for tours of both Catania and Mount Etna. The rooms may seem gloomy at first but ours was comfortable although the bathroom was a little cramped everything worked fine and it was clean. Meals on the terrace at breakfast and for dinner at night were superb. Very friendly waiters. But again, I must stress that the Reception staff were fantastically helpful and pleasant. Not concerning the hotel, but if you arrive by bus at the port, be careful of rogue taxis. Local youths who are not taxis, but just announce they are. When you get in and see their swimming gear, lack of a meter.....

    The general decor was very attractive - done out in a boutique style, but not pretentious. Situation near the duomo is perfect. Breakfast was very good, generous selection of food, served on an attractive terrace over looking the city. Excellent value for money, and very friendly and helpful staff.

    A beautiful hotel in the heart of Catania. Very large spacious room, very friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast. Very good value for money.

    Though the location is great being so near to everything, we had a nightmare trying to find the place by car due to the one way systems and adapting to the sicilian way of driving. I would recommend you try arriving at the siesta time, between 2 and 6ish and that you have your route planned out fully before arriving in Catania

    One of the most convenient location in Catania with the nice view on the open air veranda for breakfast. Upon your wish you can seat inside. Withing walking distance there are many good restaurants, shops and also sightseeing. We were enjoying staying there, the staff was very helpful, free WI-Fi and very nice inside. And it was great deal for the staff to call car service to the airport for 25 Euro instead of 40 Euro if you go by taxi. Albert and Elena from Moscow

    +++Beautiful interiors & palatial style. Lovely room +++Appropriate value for money +++Perfectly located central to central Catania; shops & restaurants

    ---Receptionist lied to me; telling me that a taxi to the airport will be slightly more than the "hotel-organised" shuttle (a simple car) when in actual fact a taxi had a standard-rate of €18 & his "shuttle" was €25...

    The hotel has a xviii-xix century feeling, whilst still very nicely renovated. The rooms and bathroom is sizeable and clean with nice furtniture, definitely good value for the money. The hotel is 5min located from the very center (Dom), whilst still not on a very busy street. Nice view from the terrace.

    The breakfast was disappointingly basic and medium quality, did not fit to the nice atmosphere of the hotel. Though the location is beautiful (eating breakfast on a terrace, which can be closed during cold), but very low variaty of food: German chees (in Italy?), private label cheep yoghurt, just one kind of meet, sweets were all the same taste just different form, nothing really special to Italy.

    nice spacious rooms The best (half outside) terrace for breakfast !!

    The hotel has very nice rooms decorated in "old" luxury style with cloth wallpapers and massive furniture. The design of room is very nice and the room has balcony with set of table and chairs. Block of 4+1 outlets at table allows you plug all your electronics, WiFi Internet works fine. Staff is very friendly.

    Only shower is avaliable in the room (at least in the room we were). The breakfast is very basic, has no any hot dishes (boiled eggs only - cold) and very bad tasting juices, similar instant ones.

    The staff are the very best thing about this hotel - courteous, helpful, responding promptly to all requests. This is true of both front of house staff and of waitress service at breakfast. Freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast, and capuccino, are provided at request. Breakfast is served on the first floor terrace which is light and airy, with tables both outside and inside. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms I have had contained a shower cubicle, but that was also spacious. The hotel is in a nice area of town.

    Public transport does not serve the hotel, even though it is on a main thoroughfare. To reach it on foot is a bit of a struggle with a suitcase, as steps are involved. That said, the hotel is good value for money so I do not mind paying for a taxi. The service used by the hotel is run by a father-and-son team; both are delightful (the cars are a Jaguar and an Audi).
