Art and Luxury
Like staying in a friendly art museum. Beautiful, thoughtful decor everywhere. Incredibly attentive and professional staff. Just a beautiful stay in a perfect location - the heart of Catania's market district.

6/10 Good

Our time at Asmundo di Gisira was akin to staying at a museum. The breakfast room had lovely wall art, and our room was well-apportioned. However, I believe this is NOT the place for an active traveler. It is more suited for someone who chooses to sleep-in on vacation, and have a day of lounging. Also NOT the place to stay if you have a flight at 9 a.m. (or earlier) as you will not receive the breakfast that is part of your room price. This is also NOT the place to stay if you don't want to micromanage your vacation. We scheduled a winter hike of Etna, requiring us to leave the hotel at 7:45. Thus, we were informed that we could not have the included breakfast. We thought it nice that a breakfast bag was prepared for us - until we saw what was inside it: two child-size juice boxes; two "fizzy" waters (who drinks fizzy waters on a hike?!?); two finger-sized pastry; two packages of saltines; and ONE Lidl mini chocolate bar (for us to split?!?). PERFECT for a person that is on a diet (I guess?!) and maybe ONE person (not two...!!!). I also advised the front desk upon check-in that we also had a 9 a.m. flight on Monday and would require a "takeaway" breakfast as well that morning, as well as boarding passes printed. Well, you can probably guess, come Monday morning as our taxi awaited, NO boarding passes printed (although sent at 4:45 p.m the afternoon before to the email given to me) and NO breakfast bag (because I didn't "confirm" - huh? That my flight was exactly

2/10 Poor

My room was up 53 steps due to a broken elevator that was not available for guests for a number of months. No one at the hotel was even remotely interested in getting the elevator repaired. The hotel's location was actually beyond fantastic. Hotel had no sign on the outside; very strange.

6/10 Good

The people at reception were very helpful. However, there is no elevator and there is no signage outside the hotel. The room was large but a terrible use of space. Two twin beds almost on top of each other and the lighting options were awful. There were bright bulbs and red bulbs. There was a step UP to the sleeping area and another to the bathroom. The rain shower came sideways out of the wall not from the top. Very little counter space for your cosmetics but a huge bathroom. As I stated, this room made very poor use of it's space. I thought the price was very high for the services rendered. One small bottle of "free" natural water was provided with the room. I would not stay here again.

Beautiful place, feels like a palace and especially the roof top terrace! We saw a shooting star there August 27, 21! So grand and dreamy!
