Thoroughly recommended. The apartment is within an older building, overlooking a central courtyard. It is very quiet indeed, considering the location, and thoroughly secure. Ten minutes walk from the Duomo on the one hand and the Central Station and Bus Station on the other, so perfectly placed for exploring Catania and surrounding area. Good accommodation though perhaps the shower could do with a bit of upgrading. Really nice owner who has a flat next door, but is out working most of the time.
The map on the site is inaccurate - the property is nowhere near indicated! In fact the location is MUCH more convenient than the map suggests more
