Reviewed October 23, 2012

We visited 8 hotels in 15 days, and Salavatore's enthusiastic guidance as owner/concierge of this B&B was the best. He found us a guide for Etna when the main tours were booked and saved the day, and he had excellent restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. The B&B also serves great breakfasts.

First of- I highly recommend this place.
The location is great. The bed is big and comfortable. The shower is excellent. The breakfest is above the average. The hospitality is more than perfect.
Having said that, here's some info: this was our last night after 14 days in italy and we were looking for a central place in catania to spend the night with a flight in the next morning. The b&b is next to the main shopping street that leads all the way to the duomo square. There are two ' tripadvisir top rated restarants' close by. The breakfest was great and we loved the fresh pastries and cappuchino the most ( there were other things as well). Once again- the bed was very comfortable and for a tall person it's great having a big bed. The hospitality was 10 out of 10. The room was modern and clean. We were looked after and well taken care of. A great stay. I totally recommend this place.

Salvatore is a most attentive host at athe eh13, a 5 rooms B&B in a 70's building of 10 stories one block away from the central avenue of Catania. The rooms are all very specially furnished, well equipped, clean, with a welcoming atmosphere. Since in the middle of town not quiet as on the countryside :-(. The breakfast is prepared with the personal flair of Salvatore, plus you can order eggs and more, the coffee is freshly prepared, everything at its best. Salvatore will pick you up downstairs, show you where to park your car (special rates for his guests at the parking) and carry your luggage to the 4th floor. He will explain all about Catania (safe zones and others, places to see, places to eat, specially where you can get Casarecce alla Norma). Absolutely to be recommended.

We stayed here recently just for one night before flying back to the UK from Catania. Salvatore the owner was waiting for us outside when we arrived (which was handy as the hotel isn't very obvious although is next door to a shop with the same name) and was incredibly helpful and friendly, showing us all the best restaurants on the map provided in the room. He even gave us his mobile number in case we wanted to ask him anything. The room was really clean and modern, with lots of extras like toiletries and slippers.
Our flight was early the next morning and we had to check out by 6.15am so naturally assumed we'd be too early for breakfast, but Salvatore arrived at 5.30am to prepare breakfast just for us! He'd put on an enormous spread of breakfast items from pastries to fruit and yogurt - such a lovely touch.
Lastly, the location was perfect too, only a short walk into the centre and just off the main shopping street Via Etnea.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Not much more to say than what all the other reviews have said - this B&B is brilliant and Salvatore is the best host. So friendly and extremely helpful but he also gives you your privacy when you want it.

He greeted us out on the street, even though we were 15 minutes earlier than we said we would arrive,checked the cab fare was fair (which it was), carried my very heavy pack up to our room and in fluent English gave us a running commentary on everything we needed to know about our stay in Catania. It was like staying at a favourite uncle's house.

The rooms are immaculate and beautifully appointed. Big comfortable bed, beautiful clean bathroom, wifi, tv, air-con,balcony, etc.

Breakfast was excellent with Salvatore cooking our eggs for us to our liking and a good selection of cereals and juice. Coffee was good too.

The B&B is excellently located - a 5 minute walk to the main part of town. Make sure you check out the fish markets - quite the experience and only a five minute walk away.

The value is exceptional - about half the amount we'd spend for a hotel with better amenities and friendlier service.

An absolute ten out of ten for this B&B. I would recommend it to anyone. Salvatore is a champ.

This is a gem of an hotel in a fantastic location. The owner Salvatore is a brilliant bloke who will go out of his way to help you. We were only there for one night at the start of our honeymoon, but he treated us like royalty. Breakfast is great too. Highly recommended.

For our first visit to Sicily, we flew into Catania and needed a nice place to stay in the heart of the city. We found it with Salvatore's cute, some might say funky, small b&b. With only 5 rooms on the 4th floor, the tiny elevator that holds only 2 people adds to the experience.

Salvatore's wife is an interior decorator and it shows, the colors and decor are impressive. Great breakfast, great location near Bellini gardens and endless advice and help from Salvatore, always delivered with enthusiasm and his love of country. Highly recommended.
