The comfort of this home and Ivanas hospitality I couldn't have done this without her and her comfortable home. Despite the accident I have such... More

Ivana is a really nice lady. She was flexible with arrival times and can arrange pickup from the airport. She even helped us with our lost luggage. The room was very spacious and clean. The B&B is close to the city centre, surrounded by restaurants and fast food places. We can highly recommend the pannini place just on the other... More

Included is en-suite, aircon, wifi, tv and breakfast. It's in the perfect location a short walk to main sites, bars and restaurants. The airport bus and bus/train... More

Yvana couldn't do enough for us but we never felt hassled. We actually lived in her home which we did not know until we arrived, shared a kitchen with all facilities... More

Very conveniently situated for anyone who likes to get around and about. 10 minutes walk from the major bus and train stations. Only 1 euro bus ride back to the airport (about 20 minute trip). As for this family run B&B you could not wish to meet more friendly, honest and helpful people. Two lovely children which only adds to... More

While I lived in Catania, I stayed at Ivana B&B many nights. The home is beautiful and full of Sicilian charm. The location was perfect, as it was right in the heart of the city. The best (most authentic) restaurants were only quick walks away and so was the night life. The best part about the B&B is Ivana and... More
