The location was excellent, close to the market and the old centre of the city. The rooms (I stayed in two different rooms) were stylish and very clean The host was very helpful with information about what to see and do in Catania.

The b&b is very particular, clean and original... we really loved it! It is in a perfect position, just beside the fish market and all interesting things you can visit in the city! Alessandro is very friendly and gave us some good suggestions about where to go for dinner and shopping. We had a very good stay in Bad Catania!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this quirky b&b for a night. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was really spacious, it was clean and we loved that we could get into the terrace from our room and enjoy the sun with a beer which is available from the fridge in the reception for a small price. The only...

We really liked this quirky B&B. Close to the sites and especially the fish market. That meant it was very noisy in the mornings. I used earplugs. We had the mini apartment which was great. It had a personal terrace too with great views to Mt Etna. There were no other internal windows though with views. It isn't a place...

Amazing location in a typical catanian quarter, in the city centre. Great service and reception. Lovely and spacious apartment: well designed and functional. I loved 2 floors and the terrace (great place to enjoy breakfast or dinner, remember to turn the lights on in the evening). If you want to try living in an authentic place, meet sincere people and...

A good budget option in a great location, BAD is not exactly luxurious, but is clean and comfortable. The breakfast - unexpectedly - was actually offered (using vouchers) at a cafe across the road, and not necessarily the most relaxed way to go about starting the day. Friendly and helpful reception. Did seem more like the private rooms of a...

I saw here the pictures of the apartments were things were a bit different. We have stayed here for 2 nights in a room with a separate private bathroom ( in the hallway). I know it's not the most expensive room they have, but you expect that if a room was cheaper, that doesn't mean you it has to be...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Conceived like a small Boutique hotel, BAD is the first Design Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Catania. Much more than a simple b&b, it is a unique mix of hospitality and creativity, ideal for both those travelling for pleasure and for business. It unites the fascinating Catanese baroque architecture with contemporary art and design. At BAD one breathes the creativity of Giulia and Alessandro, the two owners and curators. Professionals in the World of advertising and graphic design, they have expertly created within the ample and comfortable rooms different ambiences, exhibiting psychedelic wallpapers, amazing 19th Century Sicilian artifacts, vintage furniture and works of young aspiring artists. Every room of the b&b in fact has a different mood, colour and feeling, with two or three beds, private bathroom and naturally all the comforts you would expect. BAD is in the beating heart of Catania: in a XIX century building, next to the historical fish market "la Pescheria" and within a stone's throw of the Cathedral and main monuments of the city. Furthermore BAD is only a few minutes away from the airport, the train station and the port, and just 100 meters from a bus station which connects to other main Sicilian resorts. Because BAD is more than a sleeping experience. ... more   less

“I Was in the blue room, and you know how sometimes you get many; yea, 5 star ranks on adds, fotos arrangement, a bit far fetched from what is, and so on. I was prepared, but still hoping..well that goes to show that we must remain optimistic, I was surprised that it was just how i imagined, big enough room, lovely features, chandelier, the shower was a bit tight but did the job..”
