We booked here naturally due to all the great reviews. The location turned out to be good though at arrival the setting is not pretty nor is the first impression upon entering the building. The hosts were very nice and helpful. The decor is eclectic beyond description but not really in a quality, tasteful way. The biggest problem was the... More

My four-night solo stay in B&B Bianca couldn't have been better. The room was spacious, bright, warm and homey, complete with a scenic balcony. It was cleaned every day, and had everything I needed. Zero complaints at all, wonderful. However, it's Lea and Francesco that make the place shine. They're both excellent hosts - relaxed, chatty and exceedingly friendly. The... More

Our two last nights were spent in Catania at this beautiful b&b Bianca. A bit difficult to locate at first since its inside an appartment-building. It's located on the third floor (there is a private elevator), comfy,spacious and we haven't felt so much at home elsewhere, as we did here in b&b Bianca!. Our room was located on the back... More

Our two night stay at Bianca's with Francesco and Lea was fantastic. The stay and the house was actually one of the highlights of our trip and has inspired us to better our own apartment in Shanghai. Very warm people, fantastic location, beautiful rooms and great suggestions on local eats. It's a perfect combination.

Leia and Francesco are exceptional hosts. They are so nice and accommodating. Since we were only staying one night in Catania, Leia made sure to recommend everything we should see within our short stay. She recommended some great places to see, eat, and enjoy. The best recommendation was her dinner recommendation, if you get to stay at her B&B, ask... More

We only stayed 1 night at Bianca, at the end of our trip to Sicily, but we wish we could have stayed longer as we had a lovely time. Lea and Francesco are wonderful hosts who gave us a very friendly welcome, including lots of information about the city (in perfect English - Lea you are too modest!) - where... More

Dear guest Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry you haven't got the time for appreciate Catania as a city. I am sure it's been a question of time.

Contacted Leia at Bianca B & B and Apartments quite early as we wanted to be sure to get a room here during our stay in Sicily. We previously had plans to visit other parts of the island but decided to spend all of our seven nights here. It proved to be a right decision in retrospect. We visited Siracusa,... More

Wow, this is a really nice apartment, with some funky stylish decor. I'm not normally such an aesthete, but this was very tasteful. The hosts were very caring and served us delicious local fruits in the morning. There is a cat and a dog who are also very pleasant.

We stayed 1 night in Catania and were a bit deceived about our stay in B&B Bianca. It is a nice location, close to the piazza del duomo, bit at the same time very busy. Although the website stipulated that breakfast would be offered at 7 am, it would only be available at 7:30 at the earliest. The card the... More

Lea and Francesco run a first rate establishment. They are somehow able to make you feel as if you have a private apartment with the most helpful neighbors ever. We had the most wonderful conversations with them. Their recommendations for restaurants (and their warnings, in one case), proved absolutely prescient. L&F have, over time, picked out a small group of... More
