As long term travelers who have stayed in many different types of accommodation, we were appalled when we arrived. The room was dirty, very basic (even though we booked a superior room). The place itself was very difficult to find as it is behind the main street listed as its address in a residential apartment block. At the time of... More

The B&B is a part of a huge flat on a first floor of a magnificent Catania tenemant house - full of truly Sicilian charm. The perfectly clean and comfortable room - vaulted! - was at least 5 meters high, and a bathroom - spacious and comfortable. The best part of the experience was Ivana and her family - very... More

Ivana is a really nice lady. She was flexible with arrival times and can arrange pickup from the airport. She even helped us with our lost luggage. The room was very spacious and clean. The B&B is close to the city centre, surrounded by restaurants and fast food places. We can highly recommend the pannini place just on the other... More

Ivana's B&B is a great little place in a traditional block of flats. Nothing to special from the outside, but lovely inside. Rooms are very large, clean and have all the key facilities. Included is en-suite, aircon, wifi, tv and breakfast. It's in the perfect location a short walk to main sites, bars and restaurants. The airport bus and bus/train... More

Just back from a week in Catania City staying with Yvana and her two fab children in an understated first floor apartment right in the heart of the city. Yvana couldn't do enough for us but we never felt hassled. We actually lived in her home which we did not know until we arrived, shared a kitchen with all facilities... More

Very conveniently situated for anyone who likes to get around and about. 10 minutes walk from the major bus and train stations. Only 1 euro bus ride back to the airport (about 20 minute trip).
