Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2013

XX Miglia was amazing! The staff was so friendly, and went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The room and washroom were beautifully decorated and very clean. The breakfast was outstanding as well, we would undoubtedly return if we come back to Catania:)

Christian and Angelo are very friendly and make you feel at home. they do their utmost to help you and give you all the information. they go out of their way to give you a great service.

you will not be disappointed to stay there.

We booked this B&B at short notice as our travel plans were altered to spend a day in Catania. XX Miglia is close to the station and that was important to get the train the next day. We arrived to an unprepossessing area, and wondered if we had done the right thing! Christian answered the door, helped us with the luggage up the stairs and ushered us into this absolute oasis in the midst of the heat and chaotic traffic of Catania. Our room was lovely with the most beautiful ceiling. Well appointed with an exceptionally comfortable bed, good bathroom, tea and coffee making in the room, and plenty of space, our night here was great. He tells us there will shortly be a lift and a more salubrious entry, which will make it even better. Breakfast was generous and delicious, and Christian makes a great cappuccino!

Room Tip: Ask the proprietors. They are straightforward and honest. This is such good value just pay the extra...

The first impression was of terror, my son could not believe it, told me something was wrong. An entry horrible, with a hallway and stairs very worn for years, strange people coming in and came out through the same door to enter the hotel. Thank God we did not go because it turned out to be a very simpatico, run by its owners, super clean rooms, very well behaved, the only thing that the largest room is on the third floor and have to climb the stairs. The people outside the hotel living in other departments that are in the same property, but are very quiet and never happened at all. Breakfast is very rich, cakes, pastries, pancakes, and everything else is done by the owners, all very rich and abundant. Also they washed clothes for a very reasonable price.

La primera impresion fue de terror, mi hijo no lo podia creer, me decia que algo estaba mal. Una entrada horrible, con un pasillo y unas escaleras muy gastadas por los años, gente extraña que entraba y salia por la misma puerta de ingreso al hotel. Gracias a Dios no nos fuimos porque resulto ser un hotel muy simpatico, atendido por sus dueños, super limpias las habitaciones, muy bien atendidos, lo unico que la habitacion mas grande esta en el tercer piso y hay que subir por las escaleras. La gente ajena al hotel viven en otros departamentos que estan en la misma propiedad, pero son muy tranquilos y nunca nos sucedio nada. El desayuno es muy rico, las tortas, pasteles, panqueques, y todo lo de mas es hecho por sus dueños, todo muy rico y abundante. Tambien nos lavaron la ropa por un precio muy razonable.

Room Tip: No se deje guiar por la primera impresión! Do not be guided by the first impression!!!

Very well located within easy walking distance from the train station and major Catania sights. Wonderful breakfast and rooms. The hosts Cristian and Angelo are the nicest and most accommodating people in all of Catania, Sicily, and Italy (and maybe the whole world)! You will not be disappointed staying here!

We had a very nice stay at this B&B. The staff was so nice and accommodating. They have a lovely breakfast every morning. One day, some of us went off on an early morning trip that left from the train station at 7:00. Christian and Angelo got up early that day and made each of us a bag of pastries and juice to take with on the bus!

More seriously, one of our party got injured leaving a nearby restaurant during our stay in Catania and had to go to the hospital. Christian went with our friend and made many visits to the hospital, helping translate for our friend. Even after we had to leave, Christian is keeping in touch while our friend recovers and is able to return home.

The building itself is kind of odd, though. It's a long walk up without an elevator and there are many other apartments / residents that use a common entrance. Don't let the outside appearance put you off, however. The insides are quite nice, with modern furnishings and facilities.

NOTE: This is the same hotel that is also listed on TripAdvisor as "B&B Xxmiglia"
