Gianluca is a nice and helpful person and room was clean. Entrance of guesthouse was a nightmare and had 72 steps for our room and sometimes even a smell of drainage. The room and entrance are not as seen on site. Not enough light in the room. It is very close to market and shops.

This B n B is located the heart of the city, with the most fascinating night life. The young owner is very helpful. Lovely crisp white sheets and all the rooms have private bathrooms and air conditioning.

We booked this B&B because of its location in central Catania close to Via Etnea and in this regard this B&B exceeded our expectations because it is spot on in the center with good bus connections and within walking distance to shops, the market and some restaurants. The host was very friendly and nice, however when we asked for directions... More

The location of this B&B in Catania is perfect, next to Via Etnea and the Roman Amphitheater. The rooms are spacious and clean, our room had its balcony at the Via Etnea, great view! Restaurants are close by as well, the bus to the airport stops in front of the house.

The title says it all really. The review by Alex_123654 puzzles me as our experiences were 180% different. Except for the missing AC remote (which Gianni brought on request) and the slow draining showers. Those are correct. But hey, those are minor details.

What can I say - the worst B&B ever! We are still very much upset and very disappointed about our recent stay in this establishment. Upon our arrival the owner met us in his beach attire. He was quite rude when I wanted to pay by card, firing back 'you should have read my email, I told you cash only!'.... More

Gianni bends over backwards to help you with your stay, from calling restaurants to make reservations, to sending someone to open up for me since I booked a room the night before. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and bat of all, had a balcony that opens onto the town square. I watched lots of activity for half... More
