    Services are excellent. Staff tried their best to help customers and to provide information (eg. Using computer to translate customers' request, provide electric pot...etc). Room was decently decorated, comfortable and spacious. Location is great for travellers who need to take bus or train.

    good location , clean , good stuf ,and neer the main railway station . hard to find by car and parking .

    Extremely good location, just 5-minute walk from the Central train station. It is super if you want to take bus to travel to other cities, such as Taormina and Siracusa as the hotel is just next to the bus station. Very clean and comfortable room with a small balcony in our room. Although the breakfast area is small, however, the choices of food are enough and we were served with fresh boiled eggs.

    Although it was about a 10 to 20 minute walk to the centre this hotel was in my opinion ideally situated. It was right next to the bus/coach station and a stones throw from central station. There were some lovely scrumptious cafes and restaurants in very close proximity and shops alike. The staff were very helpful indeed. The reception staff were friendly and took time to explain where various places were.A very good recommendation on the restaurant front thankyou.

    All I would say and it is a very small point but having an english tv channel available even if it was a news channel would have been good and tea/coffee facilities in the room would have been the icing on the cake. Apart from that thankyou very much to all of the staff for making my stay pleasurable and comfortable.

    It's clean and cheap, breakfast is good.

    Location is aweful, what a dump! Doesn't feel safe walking from the hotel to town in the dark... Staff did not speak English/German/French or Dutch and the beds are way too hard. Keycard didn't work had to wait half an hour to enter the room.

    Handy to train station and free airport bus stops outside the door. Very friendly staff.

  • Single
    7.8

    The reception staffs are friendly. It is located very close to the bus terminal and train station so it is very convenient before / after visiting other cities on bus or train. Yet it is about 20 minutes walk to the city center. You can also take local bus to get there though.

  • Older travelers

    Top condition, excellent facilities, nice and clean. Friendly staff. Close to Central Station/Public Transport. Area unattractive. Some basic command of English language by reception staff would be helpful. At the same time I have to improve my Italien. Hotel might qualify for 4****.

    My room had obviously been recently renovated. Both room and bathroom were modern, clean and comfortable. Complimentary disposable slippers were a nice unexpected touch. Staff were helpful, even though their english language skills were limited. One person pulled up Google translator on her computer so we could communicate! Close to central train station (a plus and a minus), with the bus to/from the airport conveniently across the street from the hotel.

    I arrived in the evening and wanted to go for a stroll, but the neighborhood didn't seem inviting. The hotel is just a few blocks from the train station, which in most cities isn't usually the best area. The closest cafes (same/next block) seemed clean and well-lit, so it didn't seem like a dangerous place, but I wasn't comfortable as a woman wandering around alone.

    Location was very convenient for the bus from the airport, and for onward buses and trains. The decor and furnishings were modern, clean and attractive. The breakfast was very good.
