First of all I have to say, for the most part, I did not like Catania so my initial reaction to this B&B was negative. However, after staying there for three nights I realized the accommodations were pretty good. The room was very large and beautifully decorated. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a great... More

The rooms were beautiful and spacious. But the hotel is quite a long walk from the historic centre. We stayed there during the New year period and virtually everything was closed nearby. The only restaruants that were open were closer to town. We also thought the breakfast could be imprved (only sweets and pastries). They should consider serving alternatives like... More

We stayed at Antiche Volte for five nights recently, it was a lovely secure facility with great rooms and a most helpful staff. The breakfasts were wonderful, many choices. The location in Catania was also great, it's an easy walk to and from the train and bus stations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Antiche Volte to any other... More

We stayed at this lovely B&B in Catania for two nights in July 2013. It is located on the first floor of a Baroque building and is about 10-15 minutes walk to Villa Bellini and Catania's legendary markets. The room is one of the best we have stayed in over several years of travelling in Italy. It was big, beautifully... More

A lovely floor of rooms each with an ensuite. The room I stayed in had a wonderful high ceiling decoration and ornate lighting. Pristinely clean in the room and bathroom. Breakfast is a wonderful experience of smiling, helpful staff with a fresh twist to breakfast. Fresh squeezed juices and home made cakes along with the usual cearel selection all in... More

We stayed at this B&B during Easter week. We didn't have previous reservations and they were able to accomodate us by a knock at the door. Georgio and Mathilde are the owners, a young couple very busy making a successful and comfortable place to stay in Catania. Rooms were large, great bathroom, nice attention to details throughout, even down to... More

I discovered this place via a friend who lives in Catania. Ever since my first visit there in June of 2012, I have made this exquisite B&B my home whenever I travel to Catania. Perfect location to city center, shopping and lovely restaurants and outings. Extremely helpful and welcoming staff. Beautifully decorated and unique rooms. A must!!

Had a great stay. The B&B was beautiful with a large room and big bathroom. Lovely decor and comfy bed. Shower had good pressure. Breakfast was nice with fresh orange juice which we thought was delicious with croissants, sliced.meat, boiled eggs and cereal.

We arrived in Catania late at night and attempted to book in to this hotel. Despite having booked via an on-line booking site - they had no record of our booking. We were gutted! Despite this the staff were so apologetic and helpful and immediately rang another hotel a few 100 metres away and booked us into the other hotel.... More
