    Отличное место для бизнес поездки или на выходные.

    Маленький Отель в котором всего 4 Номера.2 номера на 3 х человек и 2 на двоих.Все выполнены в разном стиле,очень приятно и современно.Виномерах есть все необходимое,в том числе и нормальный фен.Убираются ежедневно,меняют полотенца и постельное белье. Завтрак сервируется с 8 утра до 9.30,сладкие закуски,сыры,колбасы,несколько видов сока,чай кофе,фрукты.Так же всякие снэки. Персонал приятный,если приезжаете ночью,вам дают небольшой квест(инструкцию) для поиска ключей в маленьких коробочках прикреплённых на стене. Если вы без машины то расположение супер,и вокзал и автовокзал в шаговой доступности.До центра минут 7-10 средним шагом. Специализированной Парковки нет,придётся оставлять на дороге,а это черевато,так как это все таки юг Италии,если машина застрахована бросайте как хотите,как делает все население. В общем я рекомендую,я была с дочкой. Фото совпадают с реальным состоянием отеля.

    Perfect stay.

    The stay in hotel symposium was great. The staff contacted us two days before the stay about the keys and the breakfast, since we arrived so late that they would not be there. They organized breakfast for us to our mini fridge and Cafe vouchers for cappuccino and colazione to use at the nearby cafe, which was very delicious also. The bed was super comfortable and the room was clean and cozy. The railway station is very close and easy to access. We have nothing to complain about. Everything was perfect.

    Mer enn forventet!

    Oppholdet her var en opptur. Vi hadde en overnatting på vei til Taormina og en overnatting på vei tilbake. Har bare positivt å si! Flotte rom, god service og god frokost. Kort vei til fots til gamlebyen i Catania, som var utrolig flott. Skulle gjerne hatt en dag til her. Ble litt forelsket i denne byen :-)

    Rather disappointing...

    Surely well located if you just pay attention to train and bus stations, but rather far away from places of interest, which supposes to walk more than fifteen minutes in specially ugly surroundings. Bed and breakfast is itself situated in enough unpleasant surroundings. Once in the building, do not confuse Symposium with another bed and breakfast three floors up, and keep in mind that the name Symposium is indicated, not in big characters on the door, but in very small ones on the right wall, with the consequence that we first missed it. Another point is that we finally never understood what actually was check-in time. The room was correct and clean. But the main disappointment clearly was the breakfast, a collection of (of what, by the way?) apparently industrial biscuits/cakes/croissants under plastic. Choosing something was not easy...

    民宿而言,職員準時到達等候開門,有廚房。由車站去酒店很近,亦可步行去旅遊景點,非常方便。不過本身大廈樓層牆身簿,聽到別人說話。
