- August 2008 - In spite of the look, the neighborhood was quiet
and seemed safe at night. The hotel is in walking distance from
the train station, which makes it a perfect location for a brief
- May 2007 - A magnificent and elegant hotel at a reasonable
price. A tiny bit out of the way ... but that only means walking
a short distance to the sights.
- May 2007 - We were
very happy with this hotel. The reception staff were extremely
helpful and spoke English. The room was huge with good bathroom.
Public areas were bright and clean. Best breakfast in all Sicily!
Location was convenient - short walk from railway station (also bus
station) - though streets between hotel and station are very run
down with some derelict buildings. Would not wander around there
late at night. In other direction, town centre is about 10 or 15
minutes' walk away. We took a taxi direct from airport, costing 25
euro in May 2007.
- May 2007 -
Excellente surprise, l'hotel est très agréable. La ville est
surprenante et sympathique, surtout pour les oiseaux de nuit. Hotel
un peu décentré, mais pas trop, aller au centre est possible à pied.
- June 2006 -
Magnífico hotel. Pequeño y acogedor. Habitaciones amplias, bien
amuebladas y con muy buen gusto. Personal del hotel muy amable y
profesional.Buen desayuno... excepto el café. No muy próximo al
centro, en una zona industrial muy solitaria por la noche, aunque
sin ningún tipo de problema. No tiene garaje, pero es fácil dejar el
coche por las noches.
- November 2006 - Amazing Hotel! - I stayed here two nights
in July when I was unexpectedly in Catania. It is close to the
airport and they took us in right away. We had no place else to go
and they were kind to take us and the rates were reasonable for the
luxury we received. The rooms were neat and clean and luxurious. The
shower was clean and spacious. We had an early flight out of Catania
and were too early for breakfast, but the gentleman at the desk was
kind enough to get us some coffee and make us feel welcome. Our
motorcycle broke down and he directed us to a place nearby so it
could be fixed. They could not have been more kind or helpful to us.
I am going again to Catania and am going to book my stay here again.
- January 2006 - Loved Hotel La Ville - We spent a week in
this excellant Hotel.The outside area is not much to look at but
don't let this put you off. The hotel is one of the best we found in
Catania. The service is excellant,the staff are very helpful and
they give you a service with a smile. The rooms are comfotable and
very clean and quite. We recommend this Hotel as its very good.
- December 2004 - Great Catania Hotel - In March 2004 our
ferry to Malta was cancelled due to bad weather. A kind cab driver
took us to the Residence Hotel La Ville, which is a few blocks from
the train & bus station. The room was spacious, quiet, beautifully
furnished and even had a small kitchen area. Hotel is located at Via
Monteverdi, 15. The desk clerk even called our hotel in Malta to say
we were going to be a day late.
