B&B is close to the city centre and clean. There is a little lounge. The landlady was friendly I had booked a room with balcony and air-conditioner. Both didn't exist. It was too hot (or loud, if you opened the window) to stay. I was promsed a better room so I waited but when I realized that I waited in... More

Very nice and clean place. Luca and his mom were very kind and helpful to us. The air conditioning unit worked perfectly. Within 10-15 min walking from the center, and close to many good restaurants and cafes. Right next to the Bellini, a beautiful garden in the heart of Catania. Highly recommended!

The only good thing about it is the location, via Etnea and, probably, the price. Old, badly maintained, broken shower enclosure. The one sidelight, in the shape of a woman's high heel boot!?!, wasn't working because unplugged. Unfortunately there was no socket to plug it in! Luca, the owner, wanted to be paid in advance (house rules, he said). We... More

The location is very good as it is along the main shopping street of Catania. The room is spacious and clean on a daily basis. The owners, Luca and his mother, are extremely friendly. They really makes us feel at home. We would definitely recommend here if you are travelling to Catania. Definitely value for money

This is a very convenient place to stay if you want to be in the city centre. The building must once have been a very grand town house. The bedrooms are spacious, some with balconies overlooking the main shopping street, not as noisy late at night as you might expect. The owner is very eager to make you feel at... More

B&B Lanza is a great little find right in the heart of Catania. A simple, family run business the very low cost might put you off at first. But don't dismiss it as a grotty hostel, the Lanza is simple, but clean and everything works (internet, TV etc). The rooms are massive and a feature of these old Baroque buildings... More

This B&B is right on the main street (Via Etnea), an easy bus ride from the station. Luca and his mother were very friendly and welcoming hosts, and we had a pleasant room with a small balcony over-looking the inner courtyard, (so it was quiet). Although there was no WiFi in the room, it was readily available in the sitting... More
