King’s House Hotel Resort Mascali Reviews
Great view on Mount Etna! Jun 12, 2013
We were staying in this 3 star hotel for 3 nights. As we arrived at the international airport of Catania we had to drive about an hour to get to the hotel (30 km). First: you do need your own transportation to get around here. The hotel is located about 200 meters from the sea (nice to walk, go fishing, not very attractive for swimming and / or sunbathing). The distance to Mount Etna and Taormina is about 17 km each.
Friendly staff, due to our late arrival they prepared us some cold, Sicilian dishes. We felt welcome. You can order a range of drinks. We choose white wine: in jugs of 1 liter for 8 euro (1/2 a liter 4 euro, a glass 2 euro).
The hotel has a main building with reception, bar, restaurant and a couple of rooms. The other rooms are situated in two floor (ground floor and first floor) high buildings around the pool in a beautiful garden with lots of flowers and a breath taking view on Mount Etna. We were staying at the far end of the garden with the best view! But we had to wait for that till the next morning.
We got our keycard and a bag with the remote controls of the a/c, the television and the television satellite. A young man accompanied us to point out the room but left the luggage to ourselves. He gave a hand to my friend who was staying next door when we had to carry up the suitcases on the outdoor steps to the first floor.
Very large room (4 beds, one made as a sofa), a large private balcony and a large terrace in front of the entrance (shared with the adjoining room). In the room a fridge (not a mini bar, an empty fridge), television, safe and a a/c. The one in my room you could switch on or off, but controlling the temperature or timer didn’t work. Spacious bathroom with sink, shower, toilet, bidet and hairdryer. Soap and shampoo provided. Rooms sparsely furnished and decorated but clean!
Free wifi throughout the hotel, worked very well in the rooms too.
The breakfast (buffet style) was good. Especially when I remember how Italian breakfasts used to be: café latte (coffee with milk) and some bread. Now we had coffee, tea, bread, Danish roles, cheese, meats, boiled eggs, cereals with milk and a fresh fruit salad!! Served at the first floor in a very hot room.
You find more information at: www.kinghousehotel.it , the site is in 5 languages, but that is only the homepage. The rest is in Italian!
Conclusion: if you have your own transportation and your goal is sightseeing this a good location for a friendly price!
