Fodor's Review

Large and modern, with a restrained atmosphere and impeccably designed rooms, this hotel is situated in one of Catania's most elegant zones, right next to the designer shops of Corso Italia. The marbled lobby is spacious and guest rooms have a careful balance of neoclassical and new furnishings, with double-pane windows adding to the peace—ask for a room facing Piazza Verga, a neat tree-lined square. The service can be erratic, though, as the hotel tends to fill up with

groups. You can dine at the Ristorante Le Zagare, while the American Bar should provide solace if you're craving a Manhattan.
