We've been at this B&B for 2 weeks now - we love it!
It's at the top of one of the old buildings of Catania's "Centro Storico" (historic center), but the interior has been beautifully and skillfully remodeled, tastefully decorated (nothing like the frilly B&Bs you find in the US) and very, very, very clean. All the amenities -AC, wifi, access to laundry, kitchen, 2 common living-room areas. Great convenient location - short walk to central train station and all the sights.
But the reason we love this place is the hospitality. The night we arrived, we were helped up the stairs with our luggage by Angelo - one of the 2 young owners - and then handed a couple cold beers and chatted up by Angelo and Nonna Pina. Angelo teaches culinary arts at the university, and every morning we get to taste his delicious home-made sicilian pastries. Angelo's cousin Cristian - the other owner - speaks english and helps us with our Italian lessons over breakfast. They give us tips on the best places to eat, best beaches, and even helped us find an apartment! Over a home-made Sicilian dinner one night Cristian taught us the Italian phrase "Sentirsi a casa": "to feel at home", and you totally will!
