“Quiet Neighbourhood at Night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

This B&B is 10-15min walking distance to the elephant fountain. Room we had was very spacious, comfortable and clean, with ensuite bathroom. The staff would also come over in the morning to make breakfast for everyone. They were all friendly and English speaking (I think most of them are students in Catania). However, I felt rather uncomfortable whenever we head out for dinner at night because the neighbourhood around the B&B gets really quiet after 9pm! (and dinner usually starts after 8.30pm here!) I would not recommend female travellers to stay here, especially if you are travelling alone. I think staying closer to Via Etnea will be better as the restaurants and bars are there and you could enjoy your dinner and nightlife a little more without worrying about the quiet and long walk back to the B&B.

My sister and I stayed at this excellent B&B. We were welcomed with refreshments, advice and warmth. The room was charming. We were in a separate building around the corner from the main B&B but this was fine. We overlooked a little street and it was quiet except for when the rubbish carts came to collect in the middle of the night. The breakfast was excellent and there was facilities to make hot drinks and get snacks throughout the day. Staff were friendly and all English speaking. We would definitely recommend it.

This is simply the best B&B in Catania, a wonderful place to stay. The location is perfect for any traveler it is a close walk to everything. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. It is very clean and safe.. They provide a full breakfast and offer sailing tours and tours of Mt. Etna. If you are planning on coming to Sicily this is the place to be!

Late at night, this hostel does not look promising, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm really happy with my stay here. The staff are very welcoming and they are onsite most of the day. Breakfast is complete, with bread, yogurt, cereals, cheeses, meats, fruits and coffee. Each room has a theme and is artistically decorated. We had our own washroom and there is a computer for free internet access. It is only a 10min walk to the Piazza Duomo. We liked one of the restaurants they recommended so much, we ate there twice.

The B&B is run by an excellent team of dynamic girls. Everything is well established and managed, nothing is missing. Should you need any info, they make sure that no request gets lost or forgotten. Fresh, crispy bread rolls every morning, personal attention, direct, and easy going style but professional. The B&B is a 10 minutes walk from the center area in either direction. The street is unattractive but ignore because the B&B itself is sparkingly clean. I certainly would choose again.

Three of us from Malta stayed 4 nights in a triple room (The Volcano Room - with a brilliant balcony view of Mount Etna!) The staff were all so very accommodating and sweet. They went out of their way to store our luggage on the last day and suggested excellent tourist attractions along with a map they provided. The room was spacious and had a funky Volcano theme design! The beds were comfortable and the balcony great for stepping out to watch the street view. The location was close to the markets, the Piazza del Duomo, and a short walk to one of the bus stations. Breakfasts were wonderful with a variety of fruit, home made cake, other sweets and cereals, yogurts, juices and the piece de resistance was a personalized coffee every morning...cappuccino, espresso, etc. Highly recommend this B&B for your next stay in Catania.

Room Tip: For a terrific view of Mount Etna, choose the Volcano Room. Although it is on the street side and ca...

We rented a triple room for one night. The host was very kind, she sat down and gave us a map with suggestions for our night.

I forgot a document in my room and they went out of their way to mail it to me.
