We spent one night at Alex'. He is a very helpful host, took time to explain to us what tour of the city would be the best. The room and the appartement are both very cosy, and bonus : Alex speaks excellent French ! Bénédicte & Romain from Paris, 13.12.14

His apartment is spectacularly decorated, as is evident from the pictures, not to mention well-located, but most importantly Alessandro is a fantastic host. Flexible when our bus was delayed, always willing to help and give recommendations, and has a very deep knowledge of Catania.

B&B Alex is an immaculately restored apartment on the second floor (no lift) of an Art Nouveau building in a tranquil area of Catania, quite close to the Villa Bellini and to the bustling Fera O Luni market. The large, high ceilinged bedroom has an extremely comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking the quiet Via Aloi and guests have exclusive... More

Generally, we had a nice holiday in Catania and it was partly due to Alessandro. He is a great and caring host, who tells you a lot about the history and traditions of Sicily. The apartment itself is decorated in good style and it is close to the main sights of the city. Highly recommendable.

Alessandro hails from the city of Agrigento, but you'd never know it because of his downright scholarly knowledge of Catania. He's full of historical information, eating and drinking recommendations, and suggestions for day trips (our jaunt out to Aci Castello was one of the highlights of our entire vacation). The location of the b&b is fantastic, on the edge of... More

Alex was a terrific host and the B&B was spectacular. The room was of typical Baroque architecture with high ceilings, lovingly restored, and comfortably and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was spotless. The breakfasts were enough for three people despite being only for me. A high quality, very affordable choice. Could not have been better for a starting point to see...
