“The place to stay in Catania”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The location is very good as it is along the main shopping street of Catania. The room is spacious and clean on a daily basis. The owners, Luca and his mother, are extremely friendly. They really makes us feel at home. We would definitely recommend here if you are travelling to Catania. Definitely value for money

This is a very convenient place to stay if you want to be in the city centre. The building must once have been a very grand town house. The bedrooms are spacious, some with balconies overlooking the main shopping street, not as noisy late at night as you might expect.
The owner is very eager to make you feel at home and will even provide an iron if reqested. Breakfast across the street at a bar was actually a better option than some hotels we stayed in.
It is a budget B&B but has everything needed. The bathrooms are definately not 5 star and could do with up grading but at this price we had no complaints. The beautiful Botanical Park is within easy walking distance and makes a peacful haven in a busy city.
All in all - excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the main street are fine but ask for one overlooking the internal courtyard if you...

B&B Lanza is a great little find right in the heart of Catania. A simple, family run business the very low cost might put you off at first. But don't dismiss it as a grotty hostel, the Lanza is simple, but clean and everything works (internet, TV etc). The rooms are massive and a feature of these old Baroque buildings is the high ceilings and ornate trimmings that really make you feel like you're experiencing old Sicily. The management are kind and efficient and know the city well.

There is also long term, secure parking across the street!

Enjoy

Room Tip: Ask for the en suite - it's also off the road so quieter

This B&B is right on the main street (Via Etnea), an easy bus ride from the station. Luca and his mother were very friendly and welcoming hosts, and we had a pleasant room with a small balcony over-looking the inner courtyard, (so it was quiet). Although there was no WiFi in the room, it was readily available in the sitting room down the hall. The room also included a fridge, which was a nice feature.

Breakfasts were actually in a fancy cafe across the street, and consisted of a large, fresh, filled croissant and a coffee.

The location is great, with lots of shops nearby and it is an easy walk to the main square and the various markets and sights. If the weather is clear, Mt. Etna is visible from the park just south of the B&B. There are frequent buses to/from the station and the airport running along Via Etnea.

We strongly recommend this B&B hotel. The accomodattions are spacious and friendly. The rooms have air condittionig, TV and fridge. The runner is very kind and always dissposed to help you in any way he can. You can have a very nice time in the center of Catania close to the Bellini Park & in the beutifull Via Etnea. Come here if you are looking for a good and non-expensive experience, we'll come back as soon as we can!
