Great location, friendly, clean, comfortable and great value. Plus they offer parking if you need it. I can't recommend it more highly. It's down the street from the fish market and a ten minute drive from the airport.

Great location only minutes from the La Pescheria and Piazza del Duomo. Additionally only minutes away from Piazza Borsellino where buses go to Syracuse or the lido (beach) area of Catania. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Accommodation spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very good air conditioning. Whilst we had no Italian we had no problems. We paid €65 per night for... More

This B&B is located near main tourist places of interest and Restaurants. Our suite was very quiet and had a large comfortable bed with a huge ensuite including spa bath (wonderful after a long flight). The hostess was lovely and gave us a map and highlighted all of the main places of interest. She also recommended restaurants, which were very... More

We stayed two nights at the Acqua dell'arte in Catania. It fully met our expectations. − ARRIVAL − We flew into Catania and took a taxi from the airport. It took no longer than 10 minutes. The taxi had no a/c (inspite of the temperature being 41°C!), and the driver requested € 30, even though it should have been 8-10... More

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here and had a great stay. The landlady and housekeeper (whose names I forget) were so lovely and accommodating. Our room was huge, very clean and the bed comfy. The other pluses are the location and parking. Great value for money, great B&B.

We had a very pleasant stay here. Room was airy and clean, landlady was very pleasant and it is very close to centre of town. For those planning extensions to Taormina and Syracuse, this B&B is right next to Alcala bus loop and all the buses stop there so you do not have to track to the bus terminal which... More

We're generally not B&B people, but picked this one for it's location. The outside of the building looks run down, as do all of them in this neighbourhood, but the inside has some impressive designs from it's 1700s origins. We had our own bathroom, and the breakfast was OK. We were right on the street though so others may not... More

We had a very short stay in Catania, but what we saw was very interesting. Christina and Elettra were so welcoming and assisted us in getting away to the airport very early next day. Interiors were beautifully decorated and clean. Position was very good, being within easy walk of the cathedral and other sites. Highly recommend Acqua dell'Arte

We spent three days, and after a small difficulty, and being a bit off put by the exterior,have nothing but praise. We cannot fault the people, the poison or the interior. just five minutes to the fish market, the main square. Maybe they need a little bit of help with upgrading the IT… but this is splitting hairs.

We decided to get a local bus from the airport which was very good but we struggled initially to find the B and B, Although the outside appearance can be discouraging the welcome and the decor exceeded our expectations. The room was wonderful - very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful but a little "bread based" - some fruit would have... More
