“Perfect location for Catania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

I recently travelled to Catania for the first time. Donatella and Enzio were very helpful and run a wonderful B&B.

It is close to shopping and restaurants. It is quiet as it is a few streets away from the main road. There are a few markets for fresh fruits within walking distance. The rooms are very quaint and have their own private bathrooms. I was fortunate to have a small balcony with my room.

They made me feel very welcome and safe in their home!!! They offer a lovely breakfast with pastries, coffee, juice and water.

Only concern would be if you cannot handle a lot of stairs as their location is on the third floor and there is no lift. Also they only accept cash.

But other than that I will definitely return and stay here again.

Stayed August 2013, traveled solo

The B&B is beautifully located for the sightseer and the shopper!
It was the perfect choice for both. We spent a just a day in Catania at the end of our trip to Sicily but we were given a lovely room which was spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. The owners, Donatella and Enzio were extremely kind, friendly and always very willing to giving us directions for the main shopping street or the other main sights in the city. Great experience overall, highly recommended.
