We booked this hotel as a package deal with lastminute.com (flight&hotel together) only to be told by the hotel, by chance as I emailed them to ask about a shuttle, that we wouldn’t make the cut off time for check in and we needed to cancel our first night. The hotel agreed to refund us for this first night, and... More

Why are you even here? You'll be asking yourself this as you search the street for the entrance to the B&B, then as you climb the stairs in the run-down stairwell. Oh god, what were you thinking trying to save a few euros? This is a hole in a bad part of town. But then the door opens to your... More

Arriving at Catania Centrale station, we knew it was an 8 minute walk to Via Antonio de Curtis. However, the lack of proper street signs on every corner meant it took us ages to find the road of our B&B. We asked for help/directions from passing Italians and walked for ages before we found the right road. Then we struggled... More

I agree that this B&B lacks a sign in the street so it is a bit complicated to find. At least little sign on the front gates would be a huge help for a tourist.However, did not meet any Italian who would refuse to provide directions (although in Italian), so found it quickly. You can not change the neighborhood but... More

Our average score is based on the fact that even if the hotel looks acceptable from the inside, the outer aspect is the one that requires strong improvement (it is located in a shabby neighborhood full of immigrants, it does not have any kind of advertising or informational tablet to indicate the hotel itself, we were in the front of...

We arrived on the street and I've seen on the internet that the location was a bit sketchy. We called the buzzer and entered the interior courtyard and the receptionist came after us because we didn't know where the recetion or the hotel entry was, there is no sign whatsoever, on the street nor in the interior. The staff were... More

The hotel has no sign so it was nearly impossible for us to find it... the entrance was very very dirty and full of cats. The rooms are very nice and the beds are very confortable. The breakfast is nothing (coffe & croissant) and for that breakfast you have to go 500 meters on foot.

The B&B is located in the centre of Catania. The people were very helpful e.g., recommended and organised the tour guides for our Mt. Etna excursion. Thee rooms were clean and spacious. The air-conditioning worked very well and quiet, which was essential for these hot August days. We had some nice days in Catania and its surroundings.
