For my two weeks at Catania I had picked the Hotel "Savona" from the Internet because of its central location a few steps from the Piazza Duomo and because of its reasonable price of Euro 50/night (without breakfast, which in Italy you can easily consume on your way out in a bar).

My instinct did not fail me that this was a traditional hotel of the good old style. My room was on the third floor. As there is no elevator, the kind receptionist immediately offered to carry my suitcase upstairs.

Both my bedroom and bathroom had French door windows, which actually opened!

They were overlooking an interior courtyard and were thus completely quiet despite the heavy traffic on the Via Vittorio Emanuele II in front of the hotel entrance.

The furnishing was simple, --a bed, a wardrobe, a table, a full-length mirror, but what more does one need to sleep. Of course, there were also the modern amenities of TV, telephone and a refrigerator with a minibar.

The shower was hot with strong pressure and every day I got four new immaculately white towels in all sizes.

The cleanliness was superb!!! Not only were the floors of the hallways, bedroom and bath shiny, but the white muslin curtains and the blanket were as fresh as if no stranger had ever stayed there.

Above all it was the friendliness of the staff that made me feel at home at the "Savona". Whenever I will return to Catania, I shall stay there again.
