“Nice B&B in the centre of Catania”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

This B&B is located right in the heart of Catania. The rooms as the rest of the hotel are well furnished. Rooms include all amenities: mini fridge, airconditioner, television an safe.
Decoration of the corridor is quiet peculiar especially if you love antiques and collectibles.
We got a room with a Fantastic view over the harbour. Ask for it if you happen to book there. The breakfast is delicious with home made jams and marmalades, the extra touch is given by the spectacular view of Mt Etna dominating the view.

Definetly worth spending a night

Room Tip: Ask for room 3

San Placido Inn is a great Bed and Breakfast in Catania, where u can stay easily, with all the utilities u need, and an amazing position.

Staff is so kind and real Sicilian guys.

I cannot write a lot about it, cause this place is just amazing, and perfect from all point of views.

Room Tip: There are couple rooms with a balcony, but anyway there is a terrace opened for all u need, and that...

This B&B is in a center of Catania, near the Duomo and the mercato. The location is best for tourists. Our room is large and comfortable. A homemade jam prepared for breakfast was delicious. The B&B has two terraces. On one of them we saw the Mt. Etana before us while having a breakfast. From the other one shared by some rooms we saw a port. We enjoyed lunch time there. The owner family was very friendly. They always speak with a smile and smile.... I'm pleased with this B&B. I will stay once again when I go to Catania. Recommended B&B, this is!!!

This BB was suggested to us by our friend who had a good experience there, it was very well located, close the center, with beautiful views (Etna, city, churches, duomo) from the breakfast terrace. We were welcomed by David, who was very helpful and explained where to go in Catania. The room was clean, home-made orange, fig, tangerine jams for breakfast were delicious. It is close to some nice restaurants and bars, wineshops etc. and good as a starting point for trips to other places on the eastern coast of Sicily and of course Etna. We spend a nice week there and we would go back anytime!

My partner and I decided to spend two nights in this B&B after we read all the comments on Tripadvisor. The place has many good points, like the location (just close to the Duomo square) and the view from the lovely terrace. The breakfast too was ok, with home made jams.
Unfortunately the room was the weakest point of our stay. Dirty, very dirty and untidy. In the shower the water didn't go through the wastepipe and remained stagnant. The plastic carpet in the shower, that was supposedly white, had a strong layer of brown dirt, and furthermore the bathroom had a kind of electrical sucker to suck up the water and it made noise all night long.
In the fridge there was still food left from the previous client. The sheets didn't even cover the mattress and if you put your arms in the windowsill you could have been sure that you left with a lot od dust.
We were supposed to stay there 2 nights, but I called the owner the same day to tell him we would leave the day after (mainly because the first day had already been payed in advance). The morning after he did'n even come to the B&B to check if the room was really dirty or not, or to apologize.
We wouldn't really come back to this place... there are more B&B or hotels around the place that have a much better realtion quality/price

Found this B&B on Osterie & Locande D'Italia Slow Food Edition, We arrived late in Catania that day and had no place to park, the owner did his best to find one for us. The staff were also very nice and tried to show us the very best of the city. I enjoyed the most their breakfast on the terraces. A warm hut in the heart of the city. I only wish we could have stayed longer there.

We were heading from Siracusa to visit friends in Naples, but I wanted to see Etna, and since a ferry goes from Catania to Naples overnight, Catania was a perfect place for a stopover. Our hostess in Siracusa recommended San Placido Inn, they had a room available, and so we booked it without hesitation. Orazio, the owner, is beyond nice. He and his staff are so helpful, and very accommodating (we needed to leave our luggage there for a while, after we checked out, but before our ferry departed). The bed was large and comfortable, and we had an excellent night's sleep. The views from both our bedroom terrace and the breakfast terrace were lovely. Orazio recommended a fabulous place for dinner. We fell in love with Catania, especially its people, and our only regret was that we had not allowed more time there. If we revisit, we will make sure to stay once again at the San Placido Inn!
