Nice finding at the heart of the city. Rooms are clean and Wi-Fi is also available. Price was excellent too. Its located on the Second Floor of a block of flats, next to the H&M on Via Etnea. Great place and would surely return.

On arrival, we were welcomed by a gentleman which we assumed to be one of the owners. He was very kind and helpful but that was the only time we saw him and did not meet anybody else even when checking out during our stay.

I stayed in this B&B last weekend with a friend. Location was perfect, it was very clean and with a good breakfast. And most of all, their friendliness made us the greatest stay we could have in Catania. If I ever go back to Catania I will not look for any other place to stay.

We arrived 15 minutes after 8pm. Nobody answered our door rings. Luckily I had an Italian phone and was able to call the number on the door. We were "greeted" by a man who we felt was not happy to see us and he pointed at our room with a grunt. We walked into our room, questioning the strangest check-in... More

We stayed only one night in Catania and were happy with our choice of this hotel. It is small, on one floor of a big old house. The rooms are big, clean and the street noise can be (almost ) all shut out. The breakfast for 3Euro was okay, nothing great, but good enough. We had wifi and a save... More

B&B Rubens is situated in the centre of Catania and in the busiest street, via Etnea. We arrived around 23.45, I had to ring the bell twice and call the B&B for the door to open; we were greeted by a man with a sad face (probably we woke him up); I do understand it was out of their time... More

The Hotel is directly on the main street on the second floor of an old style building. The hotel is a big appartment which has a couple of rooms. It is a mixture of old and new.

“Insist on getting a room without the view of Etna. These rooms are giving out to the main street, horribly noisy. You can see Etna from almost every place in Catania.”
