I am thinking back to our time in Sicily as I put together our picture book of our 2019 trip and as I think of Umberto's, the location, the hospitality of the hosts and the accommodations, I cannot recommend this B&B enough. We arrived late in the day and they proactively reached out to let us know there was a festival going on in town and suggest alternate routes into Milazzo. They met us at the door and helped us get situated after the drive from Catania and could not be any more helpful. Highly recommend!
We stayed for only one night as we were heading to the Aeolian Islands the next morning. We arranged for Riccardo to pick us up at Catania airport. We arrived around 9.00pm and we were shown around and then went straight out to dinner. The location is excellent in a quiet street but close to the port and restaurants and cafes. We stayed in a family room with one queen bed and two singles. Room was spacious and very clean. Bathroom was also spacious and clean. The place is decorated in a quirky and stylish way. There is a decent breakfast included in the reasonable price. Overall we recommend B&B Umberto.
I cannot say enough about this place. To make a long story short, we ended up here, which was the wrong hotel and no reservation. I needed to call my family but needed WiFi. The owner was so kind, and let us use his internet, gave us drinks and tried to help us as much as he could. Turns out my family members thought we were coming in the next day, and booked a totally different hotel, (because this one did not have reservations for the entire week). Anyway, we were stranded with no hotel, but luckily they had one here for the one night. The owner was so kind and truly made us feel like family. The room was clean and very comfortable. It is also an excellent, centralized location. They offered a light breakfast and coffee, complimentary. I would absolutely recommend this b&b to anyone and will stay again the next time I’m in town!…
House was perfectly clean, room was large and host was helpful. Breakfast was excellent and the house centrally located near the cruise dock. Bank is next door. Cost was reasonable. Car parking abundant along street and free.
Ricardo saved us! Ferry problems left us stranded in Milazzo at midnight, and he answered a call and graciously agreed to host us on such short notice. The room was meticulously clean, spacious and welcoming. Despite a late night, he was ready to serve us breakfast at 8:30, complete with fresh-squeezed orange juice. Ricardo was exceedingly accommodating as we scrambled to salvage our trip to the aeolians, and meeting him was without a doubt the highlight of our time in Milazzo.
