Lonely Planet review
This boutique-style hotel in an 18th-century building features luxurious rooms on one of the liveliest nightlife streets in town (thank goodness for double glazing!). Perks include international cable TV, free wi-fi, and fluffy bathrobes to wear on your way to the Turkish steam bath. Check online for regularly updated special rates.
Forty new rooms were added in 2012. A whole new wing of the hotel, adjacent to the original building, and a wellness centre and solarium are planned. More expensive suites have spiral staircases leading to a second level and marble bathrooms with jaccuzis. Some of the rooms have little natural light, so check before committing.
Our independent authors have visited Il Principe Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Catania.
