Located on Sicily’s east coast and second largest city, Catania, the Mercure Catania Excelsior hotel stands on historic ground in this resiliant city centre. Catania has been buried under lava from Mount Etna seven times, and the city has been totally revived each time.
The Excelsior Grand's 176 rooms and suites are decorated with simple colours and furniture. The understated décor creates simple elegance. Some rooms include balconies while suites have private balconies that overlook Mount Etna.
The hotel restaurant, le Zagare, serves dishes with regional flavours using Sicilian products. They also have a lounge bar called Bar L’Incontro.
The hotel also includes a fitness centre.
