A good budget option in a great location, BAD is not exactly luxurious, but is clean and comfortable. The breakfast - unexpectedly - was actually offered (using vouchers) at a cafe across the road, and not necessarily the most relaxed way to go about starting the day. Friendly and helpful reception. Did seem more like the private rooms of a... More

I saw here the pictures of the apartments were things were a bit different. We have stayed here for 2 nights in a room with a separate private bathroom ( in the hallway). I know it's not the most expensive room they have, but you expect that if a room was cheaper, that doesn't mean you it has to be... More

BAD is unusual as it promotes itself as a B&B that is 'curated' by two designers so the emphasis is very much placed on how it looks and the originality of the art and ideas in the rooms. On those aspects it's hard to fault the ambition. We did have some interesting (slightly odd/scary art in our room). That was... More

Based on reviews we stayed at this place for two night. The room still smelled of bleach when we arrived. When we returned later, the room had an unmistakable smell of cigarette smoke absorbed into the bedding. There are many chips out of the walls that haven't been painted over. Above the bed without a headboard, there were two greasy... More

I was well shaft that it was all going accordingly, as I went to Catania for a weekend, last bits I read... More

We booked online and arrived around 18:00, so the B&B was expecting us. We took a taxi from the train station(15euro). It was dark outside so happy Alesandro came to greet us at the door right away. We came to visit Catania for two days, but were pleasantly surprised with our room, how clean and quiet it was, we decided... More

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
