Booked this place for three nights because of the pictures of the bedroom, bathroom and breakfasts. Yes the rooms are clean but they were actually really dark. We had the private external bathroom which is starting to worn out and dampy. The breakfast was not as generous as shown in the pictures. We were only offered several crossants (filled with... More

When we arrived the door was locked and we had to call the owner who initially said we would have to wait 20 minutes, 10 minutes later his wife arrived to let us in. Unfortunately she spoke no English but we spoke to the owner again on the telephone and he explained where we could park and breakfast times etc.... More

The B&B is very centrally located in the city of Catania so that the main shopping and sightseeing street Via Etnea and a small street with lovely restaurants are nearby. The host provides you with pastries, yoghurt, coffee and tea in the morning. In the fridge you also always find water. The room is very clean and quiet. Upon arrival... More

Spent a week here in July 2016. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the lively via Umberto. Don't be put off by the external bathroom, as it is exclusively yours during your stay. The biggest selling point is it's location, within walking distance of all sights, close to a number of good restaurants and bars,... More

We booked a room for three people. The room is very nice, clean and well-equipped. The B&B is located in the city center, near many restaurants and attractions. There is self-service breakfast with croissants, fruit, cereal, coffee, tea and yogurt. Although our room was next to a main street, the room was quite noise-isolated and the curtain was thick enough... More
