Boutique hotel Catania - Ref: CTA

Located a few meters from Piazza del Duomo, in the historic center of Catania, the palace houses on the 1st floor a small luxury hotel of 7 rooms with the atmosphere of a private residence.
Symbol of Catania Baroque architecture, this beautiful building was created in the 17th century by the architect Francesco Battaglia. With its 18th century stucco decorations, decorated wooden coffered ceilings, wrought iron balconies overlooking Piazza del Duomo and terracotta tiles covered with hand-painted floral or geometric motifs, the palace still retains a historical character of great richness.
The decoration of the rooms perfectly combines the charm of past centuries with a contemporary style. The minimalist style of the rooms skillfully exalts the historical characteristics of the palace. This small charming hotel is a unique place where one can experience a stay at a historical palazzo without sacrificing luxury and comfort. You will appreciate the attentive service and cordiality of the staff, the stylish decoration of the rooms, the intimate and refined atmosphere. Breakfasts based on organic regional products, fresh fruit juices, almond milk, seasonal fruits and Sicilian pastries can be served in the bedroom or in the small lounge.
Its geographical location in the historic center will allow you to easily reach on foot all the sites such as the Pescheria (the famous fish market), the Massimo Bellini theater, the monastery dei Benedettini, the Palazzo Biscari, the cathedral di Sant'Agata and the Via Crociferi, the emblematic street of the Catanese baroque. It is also an ideal stopover for visiting the Etna volcano, Taormina and Syracuse. For parking, the hotel offers a valet parking service at a reasonable price.

The 3 deluxe rooms are spacious, luxuriously furnished and stand out for their historic character (decorated wooden doors, ceilings with decorated stucco or wooden boxes, fabric tapestries). The choice of contemporary furniture and italian design balances perfectly the modern and the ancient. Each of the room enjoys a balcony with views of Piazza del Duomo. The 3 superior rooms distributed between the 2nd and 3rd floors are tastefully decorated in a contemporary and cozy style. Some of them have a balcony with views of the historic center. The standard room has a window but no view and can only accommodate one person or two children. All rooms have perfect soundproofing. All of them are equipped with bathroom (shower), safe, air-conditioning, TV, teas/herbal set, coffee machine (only in deluxe rooms).
