“The personal touch made our stay”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Wow, we can see why EH 13 is rated #1 on Trip Advisor. We know this is the result of Salvatore's hard work and dedication to his B & B. His attention to every detail is evident prior to and during our visit.
He has created a wonderful space for his guests to enjoy and relax. The modern touch is so fresh and clean.
He arranged everything from tours to directions anywhere we needed, nothing seemed to be too much for him.
He was thorough, organized, the breakfasts are amazing and we appreciated the delicious healthy choices.

His enthusiasm for Sicily and Catania are infectious and his help and many tips for this area are very much appreciated.
From restaurants to shoe shopping; groceries and coffee pods to deli foods and the many wonderful sights; we loved them all.

We would not hesitate to spend another 4 days with him in the future.

What a find! Stylishly decorated rooms, a wonderful breakfast, great views of Etna from the balcony, but most of all, Salvatore, the most friendly host you will ever meet. Find him and go there! Keith & Zoe, London

We've been in a room with a slow bed, I didn't like it but it was fine. The elevator is very small and it broke down twice during our stay, 5 floors. Its location is good. You can hear the noise from the street. He gave us a bottle of wine because of my birthday, a nice detail. The breakfast was good, different sweets and jams. Salvatore helped us very much and he booked for us another B&B for the next day and a tour to the Etna.

The rooms are fully modernised and well equipped, the breakfasts excellent and the host, Salvatore, was brilliant in every respect. Attentive, helpful and knowledgeable and makes a great cup of coffee!
When the weather is kind, the view of Mt Etna from the room's balcony is stunning.
With your own car you do need to find local on street parking or go to a nearby parking station but while we were there we were lucky to get a spot right outside the door of the building.
We would recommend this B&B to others.

I almost don't want to tell you about this one, keep it for myself as a little secret. Its a B&B with really lovely decor and absolutely central to Catania.
The jewel is the owner Salvatore, he is so kind and helpful. He booked us in at a lovely restaurant where we got tasty and not expensive local food. Ask him to go to Mama Rosa's if you are interested. Its on a back road but its very lovely and Mama Rosa hand makes all the pasta. Its said to be the best pasta places in Catania. Then we wanted to visit Etna, so he booked us on a fantastic tour with a man from Milian called Andre, he was so interesting and very well informed. Included in our discounted price was a fantastic meal at Etna base camp. We only stayed at EH13 one night, but it was great. Very clean, very chic, breakfast was fresh pastries, scrambled eggs, bread, jams juice, coffee tea... Very nice. Yes, I'd stay there again, and yes I recommend it to you

Room Tip: Not many twins, so ensure you ask for one if you need it. There is a balcony on one side so ask for...

If you're looking for something a little different to your average boring hotel room, want a friendly host (Salvatore!), who goes out of his way to make sure you enjoy your stay, and a room with a view to Mount Etna, then stay at Eh13. It also is centrally located and offers a great breakfast to start the day with local pastries too. Salvatore will give you a list of excellent places to eat (all good!) and some of his personal contacts who can give more customised tours. We booked this based on Tripadvisor reviews and it lived up to its high rating, mainly because you got a personalised experience you just don't get at large hotels. Highly recommended!

Eh13 was the first B&B for us in Sicily when we arrived in Catania. The first thing that showed how welcome we were, was that Salvatore meet us down on the street. The B&B is located on the 4th floor.

Salvatore then showed us how everything worked. Starting with how to operate the elevator, using the door locks, TV and finally how to operate the hairdryer... Must say Salvatore is the most friendly hotel landlord I ever met!

Salvatore organized our tour to Mount Etna, gave tips about which restaurant to visit and arranged a rental car for us.

The breakfast is typical of southern Italy, rather sweetish for Scandinavian palates, but you get enough.

The room was nice and spacious, clean and big enough for us two and the luggage. there's a balcony with view towards the park.

I do not hesitate to recommend Eh13 to anyone going to Catania. The location is excellent with short walking distance to good restaurants.
