The hotel is very clean, artistic in good tastes, and very welcoming. The staff gives a personal unique service, being a small hotel. Outside it might look shabby, and maybe the parking area is small, but the rest is so much excellent.

My husband and I had the short but sweet opportunity to stay at this incredible establishment while on our way home from our honeymoon. We got in late and had to leave early - but wish we could have stayed longer. Elettra was very kind, patient, and accommodating despite many miscommunication mishaps (on my part). Upon arrival Michele (the house... More

We have stayed at this B&B many times because of it's easy location to Catania airport and all the action of the city center. Don't let the exterior of this Baroque building that needs a little TLC fool you...this B&B has an elegant decor inside, very clean spacious rooms, and a friendly staff make it a great place to stay...

A wonderfully stylish and reasonable B&B within 5 minutes walk of the Duomo. Very friendly staff and the owners speak good English. The exterior is bleak but the rooms are palatial. Breakfast filled us up for the day and there are restaurants nearby [ not tried but looked OK]. We would be glad to return.
