It's quirky
This is a small palazzio hotel with a great location near to the main market in Catania. The building is full of eccentric art and this is enough to make it a memorable place to stay. A slight downside was that the bathroom (at least in our room) was not that well put together; the shower leaked and the sink would not empty. Small problems and we enjoyed our stay.

Good if quirky hotel in central Catania
Lovely if very quirky hotel. Large rooms with excellent bathroom. Surprisingly quiet for the centre of Catania. Quirkinesses is due to lots of contemporary art around the building including a 4m high flamingo and catwoman. Lovely breakfast served on a terrace overlooking the city.

Amazing little find in Catania! What a fantatic place! The staff were very welcoming and full of information about the history of the building! The roof top terrace was great and the balcony where they set up breakfast is just incredible! The room and the bed was extremely comfortable! Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting somewhere a little bit different :)

Unique stay in city centre art gallery!
We only stayed for two nights, but absolutely loved it. The building has been carefully restored and adorned with unique artwork, for admiring, and creating great photo opportunities! Our room was at the very top of the building, allowing us privacy, and usually the terrace to ourselves. Bathroom products are top quality, and breakfast was plentiful, delicious and beautifully presented - and you can enjoy it whilst watching the city come to life across the Piazza. The overall location is perfect for getting around sightseeing, and you enter the hustle and bustle of an Italian market as soon as you leave the hotel gates.

Unique, quirky but pleasant
Unique and quirky hotel. Very good breakfast and cappuccinos (or your choice of drink) to startyour day, comfy bed, fairly quiet (the market sets up outside the windows every morning). Floor has multiple short steps, rather hazardous in the middle of the night. Light fixtures are more for looks and provide adequate light, but rather harsh. Decor is a bit strange, and fragile. Moved some of the pieces to avoid breakage. High end bathroom fixtures, roomy closet, soft towels, and nice bedding. Good WiFi included. Definitely not for anyone who can’t handle steps, not for children. Helpful pleasant staff. If you are up for something different this is a great choice.

The hotel offered to arrange a private transfer which was ideal as otherwise, it would have been hard to find. Once discovered, a perfect location in the city. Not noisy but an oasis of calm. Quirky accommodation but clean, stylish and comfortable. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast is to die for!

An Oasis in a Catania
The Asmundo was an amazing place to stay. The rooms were large and overlook a piazzaa. There were plenty of over areas to spill out and relax such as a lounge room, a kitchen and the rooftop was fantastic to buy supplies from the local markets and relax and eat. The house is full of antiques and heirlooms. The breakfast on the balcony was delicious and varied and the service was first rate. Salvatore and his team were extremely helpful even to the point of running around when we arrived to help us find a parking spot (which was challenging). Catania is a bustling and intriguing place to visit and the Asmundo is a perfect place to stay. It’s location is also right in the heart of the old city.

The hidden gem - historical hotel Catania Sicily
What an amazing hotel, from the outside you wouldn't even know its a hotel but as soon as you walk in its like you are stepping back in time to a palace. The rooms are huge and the facilities are first class, we also had breakfast included in our package it was delicious and you know its fresh because the manager Salvatore buys all the produce fresh in the morning from the market which is located in the street just outside the hotel. Salvatore and the staff were so helpful and nothing was to hard they went out of their way to make our stay so wonderful.
