Pros:

Good location within easy walking distance of the centre of city of Catania, bus station, close to the fish market, Piazza Duomo, Castello Ursino, etc.
The owner ( all the best to Mr. Giuseppe !! ) and staff are extremely kind and helpful.
Our room was clean, pleasantly furnished, comfortable, large and elegant.
The breakfast was good, into an verry nice room.
The B&B have only 4 rooms, so is quiet from inside.


Cons:

Bathroom was very humid and the ventilation sistem don't work very well, is hard to put fresh air in there.
TV lcd don't worked, some problems with the aerial antena.
No lift/elevator in the building.
Some noisy from outside busy street, in the night.

All in all, my final note is 9 from 10.
Recomanded !

My wife, daughter and I arrived at Catania airport on May 29th, 2012 and proceeded to the Avis rent-a-car office. We hired a small Fiat Punto Evo and drove to the Acquadellarte B & B.

We arrived in the street just outside the entrance and were trying to locate the exact location of the place when a man opened the right side rear door and leaned in and grabbed my wife's handbag. She was screaming but I was unaware that a robbery was taking place. He managed to take it and escaped on the back of a motor scooter with an accomplice. The bag contained all of our cash which amounted to A$3,000 + Euro 2,500 and all of my wife's credit cards, driver's license etc. etc.

It was a huge shock to say the least! Welcome to Sicily!

My wife and daughter made a police report while I called the banks and reported the stolen cards.

The operators of the B & B were kind and understanding but we did wonder if they were in on it all.

The room was comfortable and the service excellent. Just be very aware of your surroundings at all times....

We will never return to Sicily!!

A wonderfully stylish and reasonable B&B within 5 minutes walk of the Duomo. Very friendly staff and the owners speak good English. The exterior is bleak but the rooms are palatial. Breakfast filled us up for the day and there are restaurants nearby [ not tried but looked OK]. We would be glad to return.

The B&B is in a wonderful old building and has been totally renovated, whilst keeping many of the original features. It is in a great location within easy walking distance of the centre of the beautiful city of Catania. It is also possible to park in the courtyard of the buiding. Our room was spotlessly clean, pleasantly furnished, comfortable and quiet. The owner and staff are extremely kind and helpful, giving us useful advice about the city.
Would definitely return.

Excellent place to stay. Close to the fish market and Piazza Duomo. The staff is very helpfull and speaks excellent English. I had the lavender room, spacious, quiet and very clean. The owner was really helpfull in advising me where to go and what to see. I can really recommend this place and next time I'm back in Catania I would book it again.
