    Good Location and Service for Good Price

    The location is great! The room was huge (although the bathroom was very tiny) and the courtyard is beautiful. The internet didn't work the first couple nights but that's not an uncommon thing in Italy so I wasn't very bothered by it and they did try to get it working. There was a power strip next to the bed for plugging in many things which is really nice since so many places have no outlets for charging your devices. If you order breakfast it will be delivered to your room but this means the coffee won't be really hot and you don't get to select your pieces of fruit (I got a rock hard pear and yellow apple) but the price is very cheap.

    The property was charming and clean. What we would have wished is at least 1 English tv channel and a better supply of coffee and some cream in the room.

    Fabulous place to stay in Catania

    My friend had recommended this B&B and it was perfect. Great location right in the old town and close to the main square and stunning Roman Amphitheater. We had hired a suite with two rooms - the rooms have some of the old palace features, two double beds, a sitting and dinning area. It was lovely to have so much space for the times we were in the apartment. The staff were really helpful at pointing out the key sights and that there was an ice cream festival on in the park which was great fun. We didn’t eat breakfast there as want to enjoy being outside on the many squares with cafes for breakfast.

  • 2.0.Poor


    This was literally the crap hole of Sicily , DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! the mattress was paper thin, we did not receive room service, we weren’t given enough toilet paper, DO NOT BELIEVE THE GOOD REVIEWS, none of what the others said could be true. This was the most unpleasant hotel stays I’ve ever had. It’s a hotel room in a housing unit, you can literally hear full conversations through the wall. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY BEWARE!!!!!! We had no water the last few days of our stay WE COULDNT SHOWER , BRUSH TEETH, FLUSH THE TOILET!!!!!!!! DO NOT BOOK YOULL BE SORRY!!!!!!!!

    Location of this hotel is excellent for the centre of Catania. We booked a room but had a fantastic apartment with everything you need for several days stay. Unfortunately we were only there for one night. Eduardo came onto the road to meet us, we initially got a bit lost, and was really helpful giving lots of information on what to see in the city.
