A wonderful week in February

Il Principe hotel was well situated and an oasis of quiet elegance in. Bustly city. All of the staff were helpful knowledgable and spoke English. The breakfast buffet was wonderful fresh and obligingly served. We ordered freshly prepared eggs and coffee and toast and it appeared within a short time. We were helped with taxis and booking events. Our only issue was regarding internet access. There was a very confusing and rather comicated way to access it. It never lasted long and we lost it up in the bedroom. Explanation was that it was 'secure'. Didn't bother us unduly but it may younger guests or those working.

Wonderful Hotel

We had a great stay at Il Principe Hotel in Catania. Incredibly friendly staff, clean and spacious room (suite) and great range of breakfast items on the buffet.

Sauber, central schön. Das Personal war nicht sehr aufmerksam, vor allem während dem Frühstück. Ansonsten alles perfetto.

Das Frühstück war nicht gerade umwerfend. Langweiliges und trockenes Brot, Fleisch— Wurstwaren ok, Käse langweilig, Kaffe aus Kaffeemaschine –> Selbstbedienung, Eierspeisen: vorhanden.... Toll waren die frischen Früchte und Säfte.
