Guest reviews for Hotel Villa Ducale

5 out of 5

Four days in April

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, amazing bathroom, helpful staff
This hotel provides personalized attention without seeming fake or overwhelming. The staff can make any request happen, and they seem genuinely happy to help. For us, they were able to provide a night time meal since we did not arrive until after ten. The view is spectacular, at all times of the day, and the rooms have individual balconies. The restaurant includes breakfast (which is delicious and full of variety), tea time, and cocktail hour, all of which are complimentary. They also have a good dinner menu. The rooms are extremely comfortable and they are cleaned just about every time you leave, which is always nice to come back to.

would love to stay again

This was one of the nicest hotel we stayed at during our 2 week tour of Italy. The room and amenities, wonderful! The rooms and bathroom very spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff could not have been friendlier and so helpful. Free Wi-Fi, just need to get a password from the staff, half hour to hour time limit, but if more time is needed, just need to ask for another password. The view was the best, to the right Mt. Etna to the left the sea. The hotel is close to a local bus stop so no need to walk far, just need to cordinate time, this was great for seeing the town. Best to take a taxi to and from hotel. We took taxi from train station to hotel cost $25 Euro. Thought we'd save money by taking the bus for departure, not worth the time to wait and cordinate with the other bus that goes to the station. The breakfast was very good.
