Hello, I,m Teresa and I wanted to thank you for this rewiew...even tough it is never too late because your stay in my house was last July...now is frebruary 2012. I would like to remind you that you have been hosted in the Rani-room (frescoed ceiling) quite large and confortable and that the total cost you paid divided by 3 person (still today) is € 33,00per person including breakfast. I think in July staying at a hostel in a dormitory with other 20 people costs about € 20/25 including ''plastic'' breakfast......Regard noise: in July in Catania, people like to have dinner outside to enjoy a little coolness of the evening (if any..) and I don't believe that in the historical center of Athens or any other european city center you can hear the silence whisper...anyway if you like absolute silence, if you like to spend your holidays as hermits or if you always want to meditate in silence choose a place over the Etna (always allowing eruption!!!) thanks

What a cozy, welcoming place to rest after a long day of travel! Teresa is very accommodating, and helpful with recommendations. The rooms and bathrooms are absolutely immaculately clean. Teresa has thought of all the details to make the stay comfortable/enjoyable, from the high quality linens, to the delicious breakfasts, to the beautiful exotic decor and the scent of fresh cut flowers. The location is ideal and walkable to most destinations in Catania that you'd want to visit, not to mention that there are a good sprinkling of bars and restaurants within the block. Our stay at this B&B was so enjoyable, it was hard to leave the room, let alone leave Catania!

Our room in this friendly B&B had an incredible scene painted on the vaulted ceiling, just like ones we had seen in museums set in former palazzi and a balcony overlooking the street. The breakfasts were wonderful, with fresh fruit and homemade quince jam. The location is very convenient to the historic sites in Catania.

Room Tip: Only one room has this incredible ceiling, but the others have their charms as well.

After 2 weeks road-touring Sicily in November, 2011, we felt completely welcomed by Teresa and Marco. Well-travelled themselves, Marco and Teresa know how to make you feel at home. The breakfasts were brimming with kiwis and other fresh fruit, along with delicious cappuchino or espresso. Teresa took time to point out must-see points in the city (including the sublime monastery), as well as pointing us to two imaginative and delicious slow-food restaurants. This B&B is completely clean and opens out of a wonderful old courtyard. Our double room was enormous and completely comfortable. While bathrooms are across the hall, they too are immaculate and each of the rooms has their own private bathroom with a door only you have a key to. I'd definitely come back here as soon as I get the chance.

Unlike the previous reviewers we were not all that happy with this place. The location is good for sight seeing in Catania. The room was a large corner room, however, on a Friday or Saturday night that means that you have bars with outdoor seating on both sides which play music until late. The outdoor seating only appears after dark so it was not apparent on booking in. Each room has its own bathroom across the hall from the bedrooms making it difficult for those not carrying a bathrobe - no robes are supplied. One of the first comments the proprietor addressed to us was that we should be very careful to turn off the lights because electricity was expensive. This left us feeling like unwelcome distant relatives she had felt obliged to take in and frankly it is her job to manage the business expenses not her guests.

Breakfast was good standard Italian breakfast. The only tourist information available was a city map and information on tours up Mt. Etna but as the weather was bad that was of no use. We mentioned at breakfast our plans to go to Siracusa for the day but no information was offered re buses even that several bus companies operate from the bus depot and each travels to a different part of Sicily. In the end we left a day early and decided not to stay at B&B's in the future.

ciao Joy, ciao Alexander, thanks for taking your time to write this rewiew...I believe that when you decide to make a trip the first step is to choose the location, the next is the choose the structure..I realize that not everyone knows what is the difference between an B&B and a Hotel..so if you don't know the difference of the type of the accomodation the fault is not mine....I don't think that in down-towns of New-York, Berlin, Barcelona you can hear the sound of silence...for this you must choose an hotel on the slopes of Etna. As for turning off the lights when you live the room: I say to all (italian, american, spanish, french etc)not only for the economic factor but above all for the environment..I,m sorry that you have misunderstood my request.Regard the tourist information, I think that goes beyond the citymap or Etna escursion. I explained that you could visit Taormina or Siracusa by bus, there are buses every hour for both cities..if your wait at the bus stop was more than one hour you could ask....When I asked how it was your day in Siracusa you answered that you are not there, you have waited more than one hour and half and tourist offices in New Zeeland (where you live) works better...
THE WORLD IS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE IS DIFFERENT..
Another note: WEATHER, I don't have the power to make sunshine on command....
I hope that your trip to Malta in a hotel has been better..
ciao
Teresa
