No words to express how kind Lea and Francesco are. Really. This was my second time that I stayed with them. As I had a very early flight, I got up very early. Francesco woke up just to give me breakfast and bid me farewell. He even gave me a VEGAN croissant. This kind of service is rare even in...

The position is perfect, right in center. Francesco, the owner, is very nice and helpful. He prepared an amazing breakfast. The room is nice, big, with good air conditioning. Just the wifi in room was very weak. Some bad smell in the toilet, but not too disturbing, as somebody else said. I was by car and i found parking free...

We loved our short stay here. The location is fabulous, right across from Chiesa di San Placido and a block down from the duomo. I reached it easily on foot from the Archi Alibus stop (5 mins). The view of the church from the breakfast room is to die for. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice. Our room was spacious...

We stayed here for one night before heading back home after our Sicilian journey. What a cool way to end it with a homely and quirky little B&B! The B&B is located in a piazza behind the Duomo and the room we had had a balcony with a view to Etna in the distance and a window with a view...

Together with Bianca (a dog) and Memole ( a cat), Lea and Francesco run this lovely B&B, that you will find on the 3rd floor in an old building. But don't worry, there is an elevator. We stayed here for a week and that was a great choice. The location is with a walking distance to everything and the mainattractions....

We booked here naturally due to all the great reviews. The location turned out to be good though at arrival the setting is not pretty nor is the first impression upon entering the building. The hosts were very nice and helpful. The decor is eclectic beyond description but not really in a quality, tasteful way. The biggest problem was the...

My four-night solo stay in B&B Bianca couldn't have been better. The room was spacious, bright, warm and homey, complete with a scenic balcony. It was cleaned every day, and had everything I needed. Zero complaints at all, wonderful. However, it's Lea and Francesco that make the place shine. They're both excellent hosts - relaxed, chatty and exceedingly friendly. The...

“Room #1 is in the back, overlooking the rooftops and a bit of the sea. Here it is quiet, and you have two small balconies with the sun shining in. It is like a little apartment with a big bed, sofa, TV and a private bathroom.”
