My family lived in Acqua dell'Arte while visiting me in Catania. The neighbourhood in not the best, but we are in Catania.. Inside it's very nice! Big rooms and bathrooms. The lady does the breakfast and is also very nice and can give you some advises for Catania.
I do have to say that there happen some bag robberies in Catania, but when people tell you to behave in a certain way, just do it. Don't take all your cash money with you on the street. If you leave it in your room, it's safe!! Best thing is to lock the door of the car and leave expensive bags at home. It's not that Sicily is more dangerous than other big cities, people are just very poor and if they see you have a lot of money with you, it could happen, that they try to steal it. Apart from that, you don't have to be afraid at all. I'm a blond girl and I walk around the evening all alone and no one even tried to do sth bad to me!
Another good thing of Acqua dell'Arte is that you can leave your car in the interior courtyard which is locked at night, but if you drive by car in Sicily you need nerves of steel! :D
