Bed & Breakfast CasAnsaldo
Ranked #3 of 25 Giarre B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2012

My husband and I only stayed one night in CasAnsaldo but we really enjoyed it. Our GPS had no problem finding the B&B and Antonio was very welcoming. He is totally dedicated to his guests and made sure we were happy with everything. The room we had was the salmon room, it was lovely and the price is very good for what you get. It’s located in a quiet residential area with a view of Mount Etna just outside the house. No problem parking the car outside which isn’t always the case in Sicily. Antonio recommended restaurants and things to do, a travel agency wouldn’t do better, he’s so proud of his heritage and always ready for a chat. We’d definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Only saw our room, the salmon room and it was large, with a huge bed, confortable and quiet.

The best asset of this B&B is the owner, Antonio.
He is highly educated and very helpful in all aspects.
The rooms and breakfast are just as described in former reviews - very good.
(mattress on the medium-soft side)
Antonio was kind and helpful.
It is advisable to get in touch wit Antonio on the phone in order to get specific directions how to find the place without wasting too much time.

Casansaldo is very well located if you intend to visit Etna, Taorimina and Catania.
The train station is less than 10 minutes by foot if you have no car.
Antonio is very kind and give you a lot of informations. The last day, sunday morning, he wake up very early to prepare breakfast, you had to be at the airport at 8 O'clock.
Friendly environment in a residential area. We LOVED it.

Very comfortable, quiet room, clean bathroom, friendly environment. Antonio was kind enough to come to pick us from the center of the town, since our GPS didn’t work, we had not a map of the town, it was already evening and we were lost. Then, after we arrived to Casansaldo, he guided us to a nice pizzeria where we had good pizzas. Nice breakfast. We loved the place and the host, we would return anytime. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable.

We stayed three nights at CasAnsaldo and we loved it! Antonio was really helpfull and did everything he could to make sure we were comfortable. Because we travelled with our four-months old son this was a real blessing. I can advice this B&B to everyone who seeks a comfortable B&B for a reasonable price...

It was like staying with relatives, as Antonio really looked after us an made our stay in the Etna, Taormina, Catania area. He was able to recommend excellent restaurants very near by. He was full of information about what to do. Being in a quiet residential area made sure we go our sleep. And Etna was visible from his front door.

I only had a one night stop at Cas Ansaldo before flying back to Ireland. My room and ensuite was newly decorated and very clean, as were the other rooms, which I was shown round, and the kitchen / diner.
Antonio was a welcoming host, sharing his knowledge of the local area. He provided a very nice, traditional Sicilian breakfast.
He also arranged a trek on the foothills of Etna for me, which was excellent - highly recommended.
