We had a very pleasant stay here. Room was airy and clean, landlady was very pleasant and it is very close to centre of town. For those planning extensions to Taormina and Syracuse, this B&B is right next to Alcala bus loop and all the buses stop there so you do not have to track to the bus terminal which... More

We're generally not B&B people, but picked this one for it's location. The outside of the building looks run down, as do all of them in this neighbourhood, but the inside has some impressive designs from it's 1700s origins. We had our own bathroom, and the breakfast was OK. We were right on the street though so others may not... More

We had a very short stay in Catania, but what we saw was very interesting. Christina and Elettra were so welcoming and assisted us in getting away to the airport very early next day. Interiors were beautifully decorated and clean. Position was very good, being within easy walk of the cathedral and other sites. Highly recommend Acqua dell'Arte

We spent three days, and after a small difficulty, and being a bit off put by the exterior,have nothing but praise. We cannot fault the people, the poison or the interior. just five minutes to the fish market, the main square. Maybe they need a little bit of help with upgrading the IT… but this is splitting hairs. Would gladly... More

We decided to get a local bus from the airport which was very good but we struggled initially to find the B and B, Although the outside appearance can be discouraging the welcome and the decor exceeded our expectations. The room was wonderful - very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful but a little "bread based" - some fruit would have... More

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

A quickly arranged trip to Catania and this b and b was a great find. Lovely room with stucco ceilings and a beautiful bathroom with a spa bath. Everything was immaculate. We had a lovely stay in Catania and had great fun following the story of Saint Agata. The food is wonderful and the fish is fresh out of the... More

My family lived in Acqua dell'Arte while visiting me in Catania. The neighbourhood in not the best, but we are in Catania.. Inside it's very nice! Big rooms and bathrooms. The lady does the breakfast and is also very nice and can give you some advises for Catania. I do have to say that there happen some bag robberies in... More
