When u first get there it is sketchy. The building is old it's in an apartment block. However inside its a paradise. The rooms are super clean u can eat off the floors. The breakfast is a standard Italian breakfast

Dear Lisa,
It' s true! A person should not judge things simply by what they see on the outside.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. Your positive comments are certainly a great motivator for us.
Sincerely,

Lucia Caponnetto

My partner and I stayed here three nights in mid-September 2013. Lovely modern clean room with a great view of the sea. In a nice part of town - a long walk away from the touristy bit, but all the more interesting and enjoyable for it. The hospitality we received from Sandra was terrific. (Alitalia lost our luggage and Sandra did everything she could to help us.) We would not hesitate to stay here again next time we are in Catania.

We were back again to Catania and stayed at Nettuno B&B for the 5th time.

As usual we were happy with our stay. Sandra and Lucia are wonderful host.

Clean, good location, comfortable bed.

TIP: The noise from the amusement park at night can be blocked out by using the metal shutters on the window and having the air conditioner on.

Enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: Sea side room for sure!

Firstly it's not the easiest to find the place, even if Lucia of the B&B gave good instructions. Don't get distracted/worried by the look of the building which is just a apartment building from the '80s because after you enter the B&B part on the 5th floor you get to a state of the art place which was carefully refurbished 2 years ago.

Ask for a room with seaview and you get some nice looks - not amazing, but was good to have a view (coming from a landlocked country:)
Lucia was extremely nice and helpful, we even got a small bottle of prosecco as a welcome gift. She gave good hints, ideas, maps to get around the downtown which is a bit further to be fair (we took the car).
Breakfast was very rich for a normal Italian breakfast, incl. even homemade cakes.

The only downside I can remember of the bit low level of sound insulation of the door, so bit noise fellow guests at the corridor woke me up. So if those doors could be replaced it would be really perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with seaview

Dear Mr. Gorbòi,
Thank you for the nice and lovely review on Tripadvisor.
We really appreciate hearing that you enjoyed your stay at our bed and breakfast !
Sorry about the noise :-(
We never receive complaints about the sound proofing of our rooms but it is possible during busy fall travel weekends renting certain areas cannot be avoided, but in the future I would recommend calling me as soon as you become disrupted, and that way I can immediately address any noise issues, and you can get a great nights rest!
Look forward to seeing you and Monika in the near future ;-)
Sincerely
Lucia Caponnetto

Nice rooms, recently renovated, clean, modern and comfortable, overall charming, good value for money.Stayed during winter time and although temperatures in Sicily are never too low the B&B could do with activating the central heating; air conditioning is available though in the rooms.
Extremely slow internet but for free, and good breakfast, but do not expect anything close to an english/cooked breakfast.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify which B&B you will be given a room at when you make the booking as Venere...

This is our 4th stay at the Nettuno B&B!

We love the place and the owners Sandra and Lucia. They are great people!

The rooms are very clean and modern. The view from the seaside balcony rooms is the best!

Again we were happy with our stay. We'll be back!

B&B Nettuno is a very clean, modern and reasonably priced B&B. The sisters who run the B&B could not be more helpful or friendly. They provided us with maps of Catania, booklets with info on local attractions and told us which buses to catch - even drawing maps of where to find the bus stops and writing messages to show the driver about where we wanted to go! The room was spotlessly clean and looked newly refurbished - we had a balcony with a sea view. Whilst the building from the outside looks worn, once you are inside the B&B is lovely. We would not hesitate to recommend B&B Nettuno.
