                      The internet was not reliable on my room. It did work properly in the foyer and on the first floor. Inconvienent.

                      The design of the hotel. Nice pool area. The view from the balcony and from the breakfast room.

                      Nice hotel friendly staff. Pool area nice and quiet. Food for breakfast lunch and dinner was good, breakfast included in rate which was good. Lunch is a set menu but expensive.

                      This is a nice hotel. The pool is nice. Breakfast is very nice especially the view for breakfast place. The location of hotel is convinient if you have a car. and the staff are helpful to guid you where to go and what to see and eat.

                      The room was dark. The design of the room is nice but I was missing light in the room. It is all black.

                      The solitude, as if it is your own villa and your own other guests. The staff is so helpfull and tries to make your stay remarkably good. The other guests are as surprised as yourself about the contradiction between old and new styles in the villa, Best of both worlds we experienced when staying in oldflowery charm and modern discogold rooms.

                      The fact that the jacuzzi is for the suites only, we expected the rooftop view and waterworld experience to be available for all guests. Breakfast could be more bio with healthy ripe fruits and lots of freshly baked brown bread.

                      The hotel is a palazzo in beautiful condition. The restaurant was excellent and the staff was very helpful.

                      The location of this hotel is out of the way and difficult to find.

                      Very cool hotel, great design features and layout, the lobby area, dining areas, bar and roof garden were simply superb. Free internet wi-fi appreciated. Fantastic italian food and breakfast. Sophisticated furniture of room. Great location if you want to travel around Catania, but it's also 5 minutes to get the center. Overall it's an excellent hotel with a great value.

                      Everything amazing, but they didn't have my preferred vodka... ;-)

                      Excellent staff, most helpful. A good restaurant with reasonable prices for the set menus.

                      Quite large and bright room with nice decorations (nicer than hey look on the pictures :)

                      The choice of food for breakfast was somehow limited especially in hot food. For our taste to much sweets :) but I think this is kind of Sicily thing to have a pastry for a breakfast :)

                      Free parking outside the hotel, you don't need to pay the parking inside hotel. Good starting point if you are leaving the city and drive north.

                      Quite expensive compare to what we got, poor room, looks like a 3 stars hotel, those nice pictures are better than reality. breakfast is poor as well, but nice view. Internet signal is poor in some rooms, and not easy to connect, we use iphone, need to write user name and password in a login page every time use the phone, too bad. Far away from city center. Be careful when you entering your credit card password !!!

                      Well kept 19 century villa, our room in fascinating modern design; view from the balcony over town and sea; very quite - since far from city noise and traffic, very clean room, nice little pool, safe car park - all at very good rate

                      Appaling breakfast quality - all industrial taste; if you like lots of Italian cakes with artificial sweeteners & spices - than it's ok. Restaurant in the basement fresh food quality - good wine - but every day the same and very boringly cookded; no other restaurant around the hotel - so one has no choice since driving by car into town is difficult and time-consuming; hotel is very difficult to find by car; Wi-Fi internet did not work for six days

                      The building and its decoration

                      Very low or - sometimes - no WiFi signal. It is impossible to connect to the web from the rooms. Very far away from the town center. Small parking area.

                      One of the hotel bar staff was very friendly.

                      Wifi? - not - Don't book this hotel expecting to use wifi it never works in the rooms and is sporadic in other areas (we were moved 3 times). Hotel generally needs updating. Hotel is a long way from the town and in a run-down area. Shuttle is once a day and doesn't turn up usually. We moved hotels half way through our trip due to the poor standards.

                      We spent a very, very good time in this place. An excellent staff, very supportive, and very kind. The room was very stylesh, spacious enough, with slippes, bathroom robe and everything you need to have a comfortable staying. In fact, we adore this luxury villa, and more than everything, we spent a relaxing time inside the pool area. I have not enough words to described the pool area: impecabil design, very relaxing lounge chair and so good cocktails... So, I strongly recomand this villa to everyone who love the quality and beautiful things. And I forgot to remind abut testy breakfast, and the beautiful panorama of the town when you drink your good cafe in the morning.
