This is a great base for a visit to Catania. Giovanni and Patricia really look after you and gave us some great tips for places to eat etc. The apartment is beautifully and thoughtfully done. The location is great - close to a fantastic market.

What a wonderful apartment! Though our stay was brief, we absolutely loved Giovanni & Patricia's apartment, Amuri at Palazzu Stidda. As soon as we arrived, Giovanni was there to greet us and walk us through the apartment. He provided us with many recommendations and a map of Catania. The location was excellent, down a quiet alley near old town. The... More

We were warmly greeted by our host and made to feel most welcome. We stayed in their flat No 1, and found it charming and perfectly suited to our needs. Great wi-fi, bed, towels, and breezes through the open windows. Plenty of room to move around and space to store clothes during our stay. Hosts provided wonderful recommendations for dining... More

我們是前一天很晚才向負責人查詢空房資訊的,負責人亦能當晚迅速及詳盡地回覆令人深刻! 不但如此,appartment內全部木製家俱亦由owner 設計及製作, 房間亦給人一種溫馨安全的感覺。他們一家亦很好客,提供了不少當地資訊。特別一提 他們推介的餐廳及雪糕店真的很令人回味啊! If you want a memorable stay, that is the place ! :D Don't think, just BOOK !!

Giovanni and Patricia’s apartment is magical. It’s the kind of place you walk in and immediately think ‘I want my home to look and feel like this.’ It has everything you need to feel at rest, safe and relaxed - sunlight, flowers, balconies, Wi-Fi, a washing machine, a full kitchen, a very comfy bed, great bathroom, etc. The location is...

Great place. Totally fulfilled our expectations. The location was simply fantastic, right in the middle of the old city centre - only a 100 meters from the local marked. The hosts, Giovanni and Patricia, where truly amazing. When showing us the apartment, they told us where to buy vine, find restaurants and stores. They also helped us plan trips to... More
