As long term travelers who have stayed in many different types of accommodation, we were appalled when we arrived. The room was dirty, very basic (even though we booked a superior room). The place itself was very difficult to find as it is behind the main street listed as its address in a residential apartment block. At the time of...

The B&B is a part of a huge flat on a first floor of a magnificent Catania tenemant house - full of truly Sicilian charm. The perfectly clean and comfortable room - vaulted! - was at least 5 meters high, and a bathroom - spacious and comfortable. The best part of the experience was Ivana and her family - very...

Ivana is a really nice lady. She was flexible with arrival times and can arrange pickup from the airport. She even helped us with our lost luggage. The room was very spacious and clean. The B&B is close to the city centre, surrounded by restaurants and fast food places. We can highly recommend the pannini place just on the other...

Just back from a week in Catania City staying with Yvana and her two fab children in an understated first floor apartment right in the heart of the city. Yvana couldn't do enough for us but we never felt hassled. We actually lived in her home which we did not know until we arrived, shared a kitchen with all facilities...

Very conveniently situated for anyone who likes to get around and about. 10 minutes walk from the major bus and train stations. Only 1 euro bus ride back to the airport (about 20 minute trip).
