Alex welcomed us into his wonderful B&B for two nights. He was warm, welcoming and very informative about all the sights and attractions in Catania. The room he provides in large, spacious, comfortable, quiet, and beautiful! The bathroom has been renovated and is almost like visiting a spa with a cascading shower head. We definitely recommend this B&B to future... More

We spent one night at Alex'. He is a very helpful host, took time to explain to us what tour of the city would be the best. The room and the appartement are both very cosy, and bonus : Alex speaks excellent French ! Bénédicte & Romain from Paris, 13.12.14

His apartment is spectacularly decorated, as is evident from the pictures, not to mention well-located, but most importantly Alessandro is a fantastic host. Flexible when our bus was delayed, always willing to help and give recommendations, and has a very deep knowledge of Catania.

B&B Alex is an immaculately restored apartment on the second floor (no lift) of an Art Nouveau building in a tranquil area of Catania, quite close to the Villa Bellini and to the bustling Fera O Luni market. The large, high ceilinged bedroom has an extremely comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking the quiet Via Aloi and guests have exclusive... More

Generally, we had a nice holiday in Catania and it was partly due to Alessandro. He is a great and caring host, who tells you a lot about the history and traditions of Sicily. The apartment itself is decorated in good style and it is close to the main sights of the city. Highly recommendable.

Alessandro hails from the city of Agrigento, but you'd never know it because of his downright scholarly knowledge of Catania. He's full of historical information, eating and drinking recommendations, and suggestions for day trips (our jaunt out to Aci Castello was one of the highlights of our entire vacation). The location of the b&b is fantastic, on the edge of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have realized the B&B Alex Catania to offer a pleasant stay to everyone wanting to spend their holidays in Catania.We are at the heart of the "art nouveau" quarter of the town: built between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, it is some hundred meters away from Via Etnea, the Cathedral and the main historical monuments.A careful renovation has transformed the apartment in a B&B where our guests can find a perfect union between style and modernity, between class and convenience. Architecture and old-style furniture live in harmony with new and original solutions.We offer our guests a bedroom, the living room and private bathroom with bathtub and shower.Transfer possibility from and to Catania airport, and from and to Agrigento. ... more   less
