This is one of the best B&B's you'll ever stay in - comfortable, beautifully decorated in an imaginatively adapted palazzo in easy walking distance from the centre of Catania. Antonio was a thoughtful and helpful host and every detail of the stay was outstanding - so much so that we came back for another two nights before leaving Sicily.

After crossing the main gate, one enters a very nice and peaceful courtyard with tables and seats where it is pleasant to take breakfast, work or simply relax. The rooms are very clean and quiet. The service is perfect and people extremely nice. Indeed, a place where I will certain come again and that I recommend strongly. Jose Teixeira

We stayed for 3 nights in July. Our room was lovely and clean, very large with a beautiful bathroom. Breakfast was served in the courtyard, and was more than adequate. The location is great as it is in a quiet area yet close to the main attractions. We would certainly recommend.

I was visiting Catania to attend a scientific meeting at the University of Catania - just up Via Etnea about 1 km - and first tried to register for the sister B&B, the Inn on the Garden. Due to technical problems at the Inn, I was automatically rebooked at Casa Barbero. That was a very nice thing for the hosts... More

In the middle of the city but very quiet with beautiul courtyard/garden where a nice breakfast is served. Our room was fantastic and very spacious. We had our own terras overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom was beautifully designed. Mr. Antonio was very helpfull and friendly. We had a great time.

I was already several times in Catania, every time in different B&B. Casa Barbero is definitely the best one, and I will prefer it also the next time I travel to Catania. Advantages: close to the city, but very quiet, big rooms, pleasant garden, good breakfast, fast internet, and the most important - very friendly host and hostess.

Antonio is an excellent and efficient host. Our arrival was a bit out of hours, so he sent all required indications to find the keys by SMS/email: very effective. The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable, a bit dark as the only source of light comes from the patio, that is a wonderful green and quiet place. The breakfast... More

Casa Barbero is a very tastefully decorated and comfortable B&B in the heart of Catania. An excellent breakfast is served in the delightful courtyard garden and Antonio is able to give you advice on how to get around and which restaurants and bars he recommends. Most places of interest in Catania are within walking distance. There is a metro station... More

Great help and thoughtful advice. The B&B was just what we needed and we highly recommend the place. We stayed there twice and the check in procedure is really easy and the space in the courtyard is delightful. Catania requires some work.

Antonio and his wife are great; they are very well organised and incredibly helpful. You have to self-check in because they are only around during the morning but Antonio sent very detailed instructions via both email and text message. Antonio also responded to my enquiry very quickly when I could not find the A/C control. Whilst on the subject of... More
