The ideal place to stay in Catania. Bright rooms with cosy home atmosphere, very convenient location in a quiet location in the historic centre of the city near the Central street, the major monuments and attractions in Catania. Helpful friendly staff will always help with the organization of excursions and itineraries for tours of the city. In the morning a... More

This is not the first time we stayed at Picone B & B..in fact it was our third time.. The location is ideal near to the famous shopping street Via Etnea, as its only round the corner, its also a 5 min walk to the Catania daily market. Rooms at Picone, are spacious, clean and very well kept. We were... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights from 14/10/13. The location is very good as its close to Via Etna and most of the tourist attractions in Catania. The B&B is located up a flight of stairs, but the owner was very helpful carrying our luggage up for us. The rooms were large, bright, clean and had air... More

Location is good, within walking distance of centre (10 min). It's a 1st floor in typical classic-style building of Catania, rooms are clean, owner is very helpful. Air conditioning works fine (and it was totally necessary in August). Possibility to have a surveilled parking place nearby (100m). Breakfast has 2 options: 1: a coupon for a pastry+coffee on a bar... More

This was the only bad B&B experience of our 3 week trip. The location is good and Michele is very friendly, but we would have left after the first night if we'd been staying more than two nights total. It is also bad value and not worth 70E a night. We paid 60E for a comparative palace in Palermo. The... More

The room we stayed in was nicely furnished and very comfortable. There were balconies looking in two directions and the location was outstanding. The pipes were old, though, so the shower was always in danger of flooding. The WiFi router wouldn't let us online, and Michele shrugged this off as a configuration problem with our tech and declined to do... More

Charming B&B with a very friendly owner. Unfortunately we couldn't get to sleep because there was a lot of noise from the streets. Also the room was full of mosquitos. Wouldn't go there again.

This was a very personal bed & breakfast. Michele the owner had little English but had thoughtfully ensured that an english speaker was present when our group of 6 arrived. However because he was so helpful common language was not necessary. He made wonderful coffee each morning and directed us to good restaurants and we looked forward to our contact... More
