Clean B&B, decorated in a design way. Personal attention and breakfast service by the owner in a very open and friendly style. Unfortenately during weekend noisy bars just in the same street, be prepared.

Don't take a room on the streetside of this B&B because right in front of you, you will find a very noisy bar with lots of seats on the footpath; the noise goes on till early in the morning... The rooms at the back give you a perfect night's sleep. The interior is very trendy and the breakfast is very... More

B&B Gem de Luxe is that kind of hotel that could be easily called pension. But stylish. Finally is a flat converted in a hotel. No more no less. The host Gabrielle was attentive and helpful. The hotel style is minimalist and there were several design items and furnitures. Phillippe Starck chairs and some other design firm objects around. All... More

Staff, Gabriella, is a very good host. Kind, interested, giving advice. Unusual as they have so many guests over the years, she did not give us the... More

Nice place to spend a night. Is located little away from the Dumo. Room was very well decorated and comfortable. People who like night life it is very good. The staff to receive us wasn't very warm & welcoming. Had some internet connection issues but the next day morning was resolved once Gabriella came. To find a parking was problem.

Very nice location with amazing staff, Gabriella help us a lot and give us very good recomendations about the island. The room was awsome. Good breakfast. The B&B is on the first floor, but the lift was too small for our stroller and we had to carry the stroller upstairs.

This little B&B is very conveniently located in Catania: it's within walking distance from the Dome and the main square, and there are a number of pleasant restaurants and bars nearby. The staff was very helpful and very welcoming, and the rooms are very stylish and elegant. Ours was also very quiet, as it didn't overlook the street. It's a... More

We spent 4 nights here recently. The location is excellent on a quiet side-street off Via San Guliano just 5 minutes on foot from the Cathedral Square. We received a very warm welcome from the owner who gave us a guided tour of the city on the streetmap including all the relevant sights and where to eat. The room decor... More
