We had a lovely stay here for one night whilst travelling around Sicily. Alessandro was super helpful with things to do and see and the room was just what we needed. No complaints at all! The B&B is situated extremely close to the main square and is perfect if arriving by train. Thanks Alessandro!

This was a second stay at Bad Catania. We were 4 and we have chosen the family apartment. It is a place perfectly suited for a family with teenagers, but not necessarily very young children because the apartment is on 2 levels; the room (air conditioned) and kitchen downstairs bathroom (which is small), toilet and terrace level 1. Furthermore, the... More

Great place in a great location (Fish market). Very friendly and very helpful staff! The beds are super-comfy and the place is quiet at night. We slept with the window open (April). Only downside is that our room did not come with the bathroom. The bathroom was at the other end of the corridor. But we will definitely come back... More

The b&b is very particular, clean and original... we really loved it! It is in a perfect position, just beside the fish market and all interesting things you can visit in the city! Alessandro is very friendly and gave us some good suggestions about where to go for dinner and shopping. We had a very good stay in Bad Catania!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this quirky b&b for a night. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was really spacious, it was clean and we loved that we could get into the terrace from our room and enjoy the sun with a beer which is available from the fridge in the reception for a small price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Conceived like a small Boutique hotel, BAD is the first Design Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Catania. Much more than a simple b&b, it is a unique mix of hospitality and creativity, ideal for both those travelling for pleasure and for business. It unites the fascinating Catanese baroque architecture with contemporary art and design. At BAD one breathes the creativity of Giulia and Alessandro, the two owners and curators. Professionals in the World of advertising and graphic design, they have expertly created within the ample and comfortable rooms different ambiences, exhibiting psychedelic wallpapers, amazing 19th Century Sicilian artifacts, vintage furniture and works of young aspiring artists. Every room of the b&b in fact has a different mood, colour and feeling, with two or three beds, private bathroom and naturally all the comforts you would expect. BAD is in the beating heart of Catania: in a XIX century building, next to the historical fish market "la Pescheria" and within a stone's throw of the Cathedral and main monuments of the city. Furthermore BAD is only a few minutes away from the airport, the train station and the port, and just 100 meters from a bus station which connects to other main Sicilian resorts. Because BAD is more than a sleeping experience. ... more   less
