“Feel at home in Catania”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

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!

Room Tip: We are staying in the big upstairs room - very big and comfortable, very nice. Have only seen insid...

A wonderful experience in this delicious Bed and Breakfast which I would suggest to anyone who would like to stay in a warm and very welcoming place for a visit to Catania. Very central and close to the market and the shopping areas. The owners and hosts of the place are very positive people, extremely helpful and willing to help out and give indications when needed. A very clean and colourful place with all necessities. 5 star service!!

Don't be put off by the appearance (and smell) when you're first let into this ancient old Catanese building. The extraordinarily helpful, friendly, interesting and hardworking owners (I was offerred and given a lift to the airport when I left) have wrought miracles with their 3rd and 4th floor apartments: bright, cheerful, comfortable, with effective air conditioning (critical for me when it was 39 or so outside). Breakfast is fabulously generous. All occupants have shared use of a kitchen/dining room (also airconditioned) - for me a great and I think unique treat, certainly at this price point, which permits (though not compels) gentle socialising with other occupants. The rooms are variously sized (I was in a double, there was another family sized room occupied by 3 Spanish ladies the night I was there: we ate together), and a third room I didn't see. I am someone who could easily afford the 5 and 4 * hotels in this city, but far prefer something more basic, less frills, and more character. I really can't recommend this highly enough.
