    This B&B is located in the city centre of Catania, right across the Castello Ursino. The room was really nice and specious and had a little balcony with great views. Rooftop terras was amazing with great views over the city centre and the Etna. Host was Oke. Didn’t speak much English and was not very helpful. One night we couldn’t enter our room because of the old lock but the host wasn’t reachable. Only the next day in the afternoon he asked what was going on. Breakfast is only cornflakes…

    Very Good

    Nice B&B with balcony views of a castle/park. 25 min walk from train station but good location with bars/restaurants (can get a bit loud in the evening, though, since many young people hang out in the castle park). Lovely rooftop terrace, too; and a self-service Kitchen with free breakfast. Only major drawback was that there weren’t any Covid precautions. The receptionist didn’t wear a mask and got on the elevator with us. Overall, recommend

    The owner did not know how to speak proper English, luckily, we spoke Spanish and managed to communicate with him appropriately. I did not receive a key for the main entrance door, and due to that, we had to always ring or wait for someone to open the main door downstairs. The facility was clean, the breakfast was not good, but you could use the kitchen, the terrace was nice, the location is top 100%, you have many cool places around, the room was clean and big, the AC was fully functioning too.

    We spent there three nights. On the first two we were completely alone in the building, but on the third we got some company. That time it turned out that the walls are super thin. Unfortunately the kitchen is not too well equiped. Except for these, the B&B is perfect for a short time. The location is really good and the view from the roof is amazing!

    It had to be Bed and “Breakfast” but we did not have any breakfast for 2 days. When we asked about breakfast, they showed us a kitchen where we could not find anything to eat, even there was not a kettle to boil water. In addition, while we were in the room, one of the staff open the door without knocking it, which was very disrespectful. The location is good, rooms are big and clean, bathroom was good.

    If you're looking for a cheap, central, quiet place to stay, you're in the right place. The facilities are quite old, there was literally no atmosphere in the building because there were no other people than us. Credit card machine didn't work on check-in. Would probably not come back since we prefer a place that's more alive. Anyway the highlight is the rooftop terrace with a beautiful view over catania and the volcano.

    As a regular traveller, I have just a couple of basic requirements for a nice stay. First a clean, comfortable bed for a good night's rest, and second, a clean bathroom with hot water shower or bath. This property failed on both accounts, and even for a budget price, I am certain there are many other properties in Catania which would meet these criteria. As far as fitting the definition of a B&B, the breakfast portion fails miserably.
