Property Information:

Cristina (Sicilian) and Rob (English) welcome you to the '5 Balconi Bed & Breakfast', a sunny palazzo built in the 1800's, with lots of colour, character and charm.

We are situated in the historic heart of Catania, right above the 13th century Ursino Castle, which dominates the piazza and gardens of Federico di Svevia. Here you can wine and dine 'al fresco' on delicious typical dishes at very reasonable prices, while soaking up the atmosphere of a real Sicilian quarter.

We offer elegant and luxurious rooms: a single, doubles (1 with an extra single bed) and a twin. The twin and double w/extra bed also interconnect for a family of up to 5 people. All have 5 metre high domed ceilings and chandeliers, very comfortable beds with mosquito nets, duvets in winter and flowering balconies of iron and marble.

NB: Air conditioning/heating, TV and free Wi-Fi are standard in all the rooms. Tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge, DVD and video player are also available for guests use.

Our breakfasts are nutritious and delicious and can be taken in your room or in the communal dining area.
The breakfast options are:

Fruit juice ~ fresh fruit (in season)
Cereal/muesli with milk ~ yoghurt
Freshly baked bread/toast with butter and organic marmalades ~ Sicilian 'cornetto' (filled croissant)
Tea (Indian, herbal, green. mint etc) ~ coffee (espresso, macchiato or cappuccino) ~ Hot Chocolate.

We are only 10 min. from the airport, a 15 min. walk to a long, golden sandy beach and a convenient base for exploring the Eastern side of the island. (Taormina, Etna, Enna, Pantalica and Siracusa are all within a 45 minute drive).
