          10.0

          Location is central and the staff were excellant... We liked the classical style of the hotel

          No extractor fan in the bathroom, bathroom had a stale/mould smell by the end of each day - the room we stayed in was a bit noisy

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          nice terrace for breakfast; friendly staff; comfortable

          the bathroom smelled of drains; the corridor was too dark so we could not read the number and name of our room; the electronic gadget for lights, curtains etc is not userfriendly for

          Hotel Royal has a very central location, within walking distance of main sights. The dinner was excellent! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

          Will rather perfer "what I liked least". The room was extremely spacious (we stayed in a suite) but the furniture old. This did not matter so much to me, but some people will be put off.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Hotel is located in the centre of the ciity up a fairly steep steet. Bedrooms are spacious. Good bathroom and very clean. Owners have gone for a certain feel to the hotel and some visitors might find the decoration in the rooms a bit gloomy. There was a small terrace at the top of the hotel with a few sun beds and a hot tub. It was nice to sit out in the early morning and late evening earing fruit we'd bought from the local market. Breakfast is good and breakfast room is located on a big terrace. Hotel staff were very helpful. I would certainly stay here again. Some of the guide books don't give a good writeup about Catania however we found it was a nice place to stay for a couple of nights before moving on elsewhere. It's nice to stay in a place that's not full of tourists. If you want to do some shopping you'll find the prices are much cheaper than other resorts such as Taormina. Some lovely architecture but a shame about graffiti on some of the buildings.

          8.0

          Courteous receptionist. Old palazzo but renovated. Best of both worlds. Excellent location: quiet, yet just 5 minutes from the main attractions.

          Poorly maintained. The fan of the air conditioning system didn't work. Instead of sending a person to come up to see what was wrong, the receptionist offered us another room because there was no one who could fix it at that time (3:30 in the afternoon). In the second room, the air con worked, but the hair dryer did not work. The TV also didn't work. There was no additional outlet for our own hair dryer. We ended up drying the hair in the hallway.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Good location for sightseeing around Catania. Very nice room with lots of space. Reception staff were very helpful and had plenty of advice.

          That i couldnt use my laptop in the room, couldnt get the WIFI signal, so had to go down to 1st floor lobby area.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          position in city and availability of parking were excellent.

          The air conditioning system in the room was erratic and noisy causing discomfort and poor sleep. An inoperative light made the use of the main mirror impossible. Staff did not respond to complaints on either issue until I asked to see the owner and threatened to refuse payment. The hotel is a triumph of design over functionality.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          The room had a nice view on the old city. There was a patio for sitting outside (without a view). The breakfast was on a nice terrace outside.

          There was no wifi. Room was quite dark and complicated system for remote control of appliances.

          Beautiful palatial room with friendly, helpful staff.Breakfast was excellent - dinner was satisfactory.The rooftop eating and entertainiment area was a plus

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Great location for exploring the city centre. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Good secure parking. Large bedrooms. Decent choice for breakfast.

          Large party booked when we wanted to eat dinner there and it was clear that the kitchen could not cope with both, which led to cold food being served at a snails pace - even the staff apologised for the delay in serving us.

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          very dirty hotel, dirty room, and dirty carpet. poor breakfast

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          The hotel was great and provided fantastic views of the city, Staff were also very helpful.

          The only comment I would make as a negative is that the hotel is at the top of a very steep hill that was not mentioned in the description.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Hotel was very good surprise. Very stylish hotel is centrally located in a truly historic Sicilian house. Excellent staff, genuine concern for sensitive reception, brilliant waiter at breakfast, ......

        • Single
          6.6

          It is old and eccentric; my room norma, was really unique and spacious. Could get lost in it. The hotel reminds you of someone's home, a bit unkempt and needs work but still incredibly charming

          The lights were incredibly complicated, no porter or even luggage cart and hard place for drop off

        • Couple
          7.0

          Good location, a short walk from the cathedrals, large clean room, however somewhat dark - only small window. Rooms cleaned very well every day. Parking in the private locked area for 10 eur. Terrase is beautiful, overlooking the roofs of catania, where breakfast is served. We had one dinner here, excellent food, large glasses of wine.

          Dark room, funny smell in the bathroom, very warm in the room - not possible to operate the air conditioning.
