« A correct hotel but aged »

the hotel was "ok", but the room was really aged, stained carpet, a very "70s" experience, bellow the Mercure level. The bar was top, with a really professional and friendly bartender

« Short stay in Catania »

The staff were very nice, the lobby was very inviting. The barman was very nice. The rooms were clean but the bathroom needs to be refurbished. The hotel location is very central with a lovely view of Etna.

« an old hotel which urgently needs to be updated and renovated in order to keep the 4 stars category »

we spent 5 nights in Mercure Excelsior. Some of the staff is friendly and helpful while some other are unfriendly and uncooperative. The hotel is old, the room is ancient with the toilet in even more ancient state. It is particularly hard to mix the hot and cold water to get a shower at the right temperature. The curtain of the large window are wrinkled and it is impossible to make the room dark also because of the silly lights on the balcony, on all night. The room facing Etna is noisy cause of traffic and ambulances, fire service and police passing by at late night. The carpet in the corridors is in poor state and wrinkled, causing danger to trip on it. The elevators are probably of "Jurassic" period. It is disturbing to see the homeless sleeping next to the entrance of the hotel and all the dirt and garbage accumulated in the small garden right outside the hotel.

« Disappointed stay »

Room provided was ok, but number of staffs in reception wasn't enough, it took long time to check in / out. Towels were provided only one set and no replace in the second day. I had to use wet one in the second day. Restaurant at breakfast venue has never spoken to me even to check room number, the response was quite loose when I asked a cup of espresso. I didn't feel any effort to welcome guests from the staffs. Unfortunately I won't come back again.

« Weekend Stay »

The rooms are very dated and in need of upgrading. We had a very dirty, stained carpet in the room. This was also in 1st room offered which was the upgraded room.Painting all walls is also very much needed or new wallpaper. The room also smelt slightly damp when windows are closed. We also found a cockroach on the 2nd night which really bothered us. As we had booked a room with view of mount Etna, we would have preferred a room on the top floors. We had to change from 2nd to 4th floor to get the starting view. Corridors are also in need of upgrading carpet and painting. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Beautiful old fashioned bar and lobby.

« The faded patina of a bygone era »

Well it should be grand but it's rather faded. That aside it's was not too bad a bit of a nasty smell in the room, why did none of the staff smell it, you do wonder. But by far the worst thing was the restaurant when we had dinner on the first night. After arriving quite late we made the disastrous decision to use the hotel restaurant for dinner. The only thing the dinning room was full of was disappointment as it certainly was not satisfied customers having an enjoyable meal. When shown to a table with dirty chairs we should have taken this as a sign to retreat and go hungry. It was down hill from there after choosing from what was not an exciting menu we were informed they had run out of spaghetti, really what isn't that some sort of national embarrassment! Still we didn't run whist we could have done ohh how we wish we had when the poor excuse of dinner arrived. When they said they were out of spaghetti I think the translation was that we have run out of the 'ping cusine' you requested. Maybe the microwave operator was out of action too as who ever destroyed my dinner whilst allegedly cooking it surely didn't do that on a regular basis. Well if they did that would explain the lack of customers in the restaurant but this didn't seem to be a problem in other restaurants in Catania, not only did they have smiling customers but staff who could cook as the food was great in the ones we tried.

We were well,taken care of from our check - in until departure. The facilities are comfortable, clean and well maintained. Staff are first - rate and multi - lingual. The front desk staff are superb and very efficient.

Anonymous Friends - 28/05/2017

Very comfortable room; very helpful staff; good facilities; excellent location. The stay was a little expensive (twice the cost of staying in the best hotel inland) and with such a huge bathroom we were surprised that there wasn't a separate shower in addition to the bath.

« Good value for price paid »

Petty good location with polite and helpful personnel, but slightly worn down interior The customer service lacked a little bit of enthusiasm. Maybe if redecorating rooms and lobby the personnel enthusiasm could be boosted.

« Good classical hotel »

Good functional room and all facilities. The service was excellent with style. The restaurant and American Bar were very good experiences. Some noise from the street could be heard, but luckily this was not at a disturbing level.

« Not impressed »

Room had filthy carpets -- stained everywhere. Bathroom sink would not drain. Shower head had only two settings: superwide (everything in bathroom gets wet except for you) and narrow (weak garden hose). Tubes of bath soap and shampoo could not be opened easily, and then could not be closed correctly.

Excellent room however it was a non smoking room but previous guests had been smokers and there was a residual smell from the cigarette smoke

Anonymous Couples - 07/05/2017

Staff were very good and attentive. Serena at the Front Desk deserves special mention as she was very informative and helpful. Breakfast was good. Location was good - loved the view of Mt Etna from the window. Only complaint was the state of the room - carpet needs cleaning, bathroom needs maintenance (tap handles falling off etc) and hotel generally needs a refresh.

Overall, a pleasant and comfortable stay. The room and corridors were a bit tired around the edges and could do with a refresh, but the room was spacious and came with all the expected services.
