Nice big, clean rooms in lovely building near Duomo, fish market and bus stop to airport. However when we were there staff were largely absent- we had to call up the receptionist on his mobile at 8am when there was no hot water and wait for him to arrive. It's also not really a bed and breakfast and has more... More

At first look you may think it is a rough area, but it is not. The rooms are large and so are the bathrooms. They also do laundry on site and free wi fi. The local fish market is right outside your door and is a lot of fun walking around the market. Many restaurants and site's to see within... More

Close to the city centre, very friendly staff, nice and clean room. Breakfeast is in a bar close by, coffee and a dolci, enough to put you up until lunch. Beds are very good, we slept well. Since it is close to the centre, expect some noise from the street. We liked it!

Great place to stay - comfortable, stylish and helpful owners. Air con works well and though you are seconds from the fish market it's easy to block out the noise. Avoid only if you can't cope with stairs.

Great b&b! Great location for visiting Catania, nice clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. We went there twice on our trip to sicily arriving and departing from catania. Make sure you arrange a time for meeting staff if you arrive outside opening hours. Nearby parking in a locked and secure garage. Highly recommend.

Poor room furniture, crumbling palace near the fish market (can you imagine the smell!) very poor breakfast at Bar Etoile (1 coffee and 1 croissant) ) with really unfriendly staff. It was a nightmare, never again!

We just stayed three nights in the apartment and loved it here. It's very spacious and has a kitchen that works well (stocked with some basic cooking ingredients which we appreciated), a gorgeous modern bathroom with the best shower we've had so far in Italy, and a lovely terrace where we had breakfast and dinner each day. The location is... More

Don't miss Catania in your Italian grand tour. But above all don't miss a stay in this wee gem of a bed & breakfast! Situated in the heart of the old town, surrounded by voices, colours, scents and flavors of the traditional fish market, every room is unique here, furnished with a vintage taste and decorated with design objects and...

A place you will always want to go back to, just next to the Fish Market in a good central location. We were shown a very nice room, but then offered the chance to upgrade. It was a no brainer! Lovely big bedroom, with a hammock in it too, then its own kitchen, which was well equipped and finally on... More
