every time we find a place to stay that has great location, service and price we entitle the review with "YOU WON" or some variation of that which we admit is a little cheesy but in this three second attention span world of readers viewing lodging websites, seems necessary to grab your attention and consider a place. We see the... More

This BB is just ideally located in the heart of Catania, al centro storico. Inviting beautiful terrace facing the Etna and the Duomo, overlooking the port. This is the 2nd time I book there. A must if you are in Catania.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of our trip. It is set in a beautiful building. The rooms are spacious and clean and have air conditioning and a fridge ( excellent when visiting Sicily in August!). The location of the hotel is fantastic. A 2 minutes walk from the main attractions and 2 mins walk... More

This B&B is located right in the heart of Catania. The rooms as the rest of the hotel are well furnished. Rooms include all amenities: mini fridge, airconditioner, television an safe. Decoration of the corridor is quiet peculiar especially if you love antiques and collectibles. We got a room with a Fantastic view over the harbour. Ask for it if... More

This B&B is in a center of Catania, near the Duomo and the mercato. The location is best for tourists. Our room is large and comfortable. A homemade jam prepared for breakfast was delicious. The B&B has two terraces. On one of them we saw the Mt. Etana before us while having a breakfast. From the other one shared by... More

This BB was suggested to us by our friend who had a good experience there, it was very well located, close the center, with beautiful views (Etna, city, churches, duomo) from the breakfast terrace. We were welcomed by David, who was very helpful and explained where to go in Catania. The room was clean, home-made orange, fig, tangerine jams for... More

My partner and I decided to spend two nights in this B&B after we read all the comments on Tripadvisor. The place has many good points, like the location (just close to the Duomo square) and the view from the lovely terrace. The breakfast too was ok, with home made jams. Unfortunately the room was the weakest point of our... More
