This B&B is ideally located just a short walk from all the major sites in the centro storico. We had some trouble finding it as it was our first trip to Catania, but someone from the B&B came out to find us and guide us in. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and an introduction to the city. Spacious rooms, lots of hot water in the shower, generous breakfast, quiet environment. We look forward to a return trip. Very good price!

Located within a five minute walk from La Piazza Duomo, B&B Globetrotter made for a perfect base camp to explore the gorgeous city. Surrounded by the vibrancy of the Catanesi markets, the Globetrotter is equally as colourful and unique, filled with beautiful old art books and a bright décor. The bathroom and kitchenette were clean and the beds quite comfy. The helpful and welcoming staff - Cécile and Daniele - went out of their way to make us feel at home, sharing their local knowledge, expert advise and extending to us some classic Sicilian hospitality. If I were to return to Catania - which I certainly will - I would stay here again. 10/10, highly advised.

A very special and relaxing place to spend your holiday,we would certainly recommend it to anyone.The location of this bed&breakfast is perfect for a stay in Catania, not far from the Historical center and of the marvellous Castle Ursino.. Service was very friendly and helpful too-nothing was too much trouble. We thank them for their cordiality and hope to be back soon.Joan

We stayed three nights at the B&B Globetrotter in Catania and had a very pleasant time. The B&B is very nicely set and decorated and located right next to the city historical center. The staff that welcomed us was extremely friendly and spoke several languages. They called the owner of the Palazzo Biscaro so that we could visit it, they recommended some places to eat. We had our breakfast with the other guests sitting around the table next to the kitchen corner, which was a tasty and fun moment. he mattresses were hard and plesant to sleep on. Just great!

A stay at the Globetrotter B and B in Catania is a wonderful experience. The friendly staff are multi-lingual, knowledgeable, and go out of their way to be helpful. The rooms are clean and comfy. The breakfast at Globetrotter is exceptional, with cereal, breads, pastries, cheese, fruit and of course caffe and teas. There is even a guitar in the lounge, and an atmosphere of international friendship. The location is steps away from the main Piazza and Duomo, and huge bustling fish and vegetable markets. There is also a central bus station nearby, as well as Via Etnea, a long mostly car free boulevard that has the best shopping in Sicily, including side streets filled with open air markets every morning, where bargains and treasures abound. For the price this is far and away the best place to stay in Catania!
