On our recent vacaction to Sicily, we decided to stay two nights in Reggio di Calabria before crossing to Messina. It was a good choice, not only because the city is an interesting one, but more so because of our stay at Casa Blanca. Owner Sergio was the perfect host, helpful and quick to respond to emails when we booked from Canada, warm and welcoming when we arrived from the nearby train station, and available to give advice about sights and, even more importantly, good restaurants. We happily followed his guidance regarding ice cream, pizza and restaurants cooking local specialties and enjoyed delicious food.
Both our prettily decorated bedroom and the ensuite bathroom (our room actually did have a large bathtub!) were a good size. We were located at the back of the building, so it was very quiet. Casa Blanca is a comfortable, secure place to stay, in a good location for the train station, main shopping street and the lovely lungomare, a promenade along the sea which was quite glorious when we were there. The sea was lovely, the sky blue and the view of Sicily was enticing. However, what impressed us the most about Casa Blanca was Sergio himself. He is young, enthusiastic and quick to offer assistance, from carrying luggage to booking our transport to the ferry terminal. He even telephoned Messina to confirm our car rental reservation on our behalf, which we much appreciated because our Italian is limited. His pride of ownership shines through. Casa Blanca is a small establishment (no elevator) that is run with care and attention to detail. We highly recomment Casa Blanca without hestitation.
