“Charming B&B in a great location”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Our host, Carmelo, was extremely friendly and helpful in getting us set up for an excursion to Mt. Etna. Our room was stylish and pleasant, and the additional French doors ensured that there was absolutely no street noise. Breakfast was provided by means of a coupon which could be redeemed at a charming café on the nearby Piazza del Duomo. Since I love Italian bars and their incomparable cappucino and pastries in the morning, I found this an excellent way to provide breakfast. Catania itself was an unexpectedly pleasant surprise. We decided toward the end of our trip to Sicily to tack on a day in Catania in order to be able to get to the airport easily. Our only regret is that we did not plan more time there. The city boasts many charming neighborhoods filled with great restaurants, bars, and shops, making it a great foodie destination. The nearby university district is particularly fun. And of course, Catania is an excellent point from which to take an excursion to Mt. Etna.

Great Stay at Amenano B&B, very clean helpful staff, centrally located the outside and main areas have to be refurbished but once inside it is great with big airy rooms....... Highly recommended will surely stay there on our next visit.

Amenano B&B...great stay! Big, clean, well furnished rooms. The rooms are done with love and taste and therefore we stayed longer than planned and even came back the week after. We stayed in two different rooms and they were beautiful. The beds slept well and the bathrooms were spacious. Once the outside of the building will be ready the B&B will be perfect!

We have had an amazing holiday in Sicily - this also thanks to the great Amenano B&B we stayed in during our stay in Catania. The B&B is located very conveniently right in the middle of the city, close to the University Square, in a characteristically beautiful newly restored building. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished, with a great big bathroom. We also had a balcony and were able to enjoy the nice weather. The service was outstanding and the breakfast vouchers can be used in a cute little breakfast place on the University Square (2 min walk). The girls in the breakfast place are lovely and very helpful. In short we had an amazing holiday and I can definitely recommend Amenano B&B!! Anne

We stayed in a quadruple room with two levels (in the first level there was a double bed, in the second level there were two single bed), with a large bathroom with all the necessary things for bath care. Only the sleep quality at the second level was a little bit low, because the air direction of the air-conditioner was located mainly at the first level, so it was quite hot. I think it s a good solution because it is centrally located and it s clean. Moreover we found a helpfulness landlord, who gave us the permission to leave baggages in the hall in front of his room for several hours before our delay.

Reviewed 2 May 2008

There is a problem with the website pictures and descriptions. I saw no hydromassage Jacuzzi, no lounge, and the picture of the Duomo labeled terrace could not have been taken from anywhere on the property. The room I got did not look as good as any in the pictures. It was not a bad room but I was expecting better. There was no breakfast at the B&B you were given coupons for the Duomo café. I liked the café. The fitted sheets were apparently not fitted to the bed they were on and kept coming off one corner during the night. There was some noise during the night by partiers in the street.

Amenano is not a bad B&B it is just that the pictures and description and the price are better than the average B&B that it is. The room was good sized, the bathroom was large and everything was clean.

  • Liked — The location was good
  • Disliked — After seeing the website it did not meet my expectations
