Property Description

Our place is in a loft-style with a beautiful hanging garden situated in the very heart of Catania, in piazza Vincenzo Lanza n. 14, a few steps from viale XX Settembre and via Etnea, very close to Giardino Bellini and the central shopping and pubs area.

Given this, it is easy to avoid the busy traffic on the streets and discover the city on foot, reaching the beautiful and important historic centre, stopping on the way at pleasant pavement cafes to watch the passers by or entering such cafes to pick through the daily papers. We allow ourselves the title Quality B+B because we are able to offer spacious, light rooms well furnished and very comfortable, as is the bathroom.

We live to spoil all our guests, not just because good treatment is the Sicilian way, but also because we like our guests to visit us again at a later date. Our policy also allows us to give discounts to young people and guests who stay for a week. Furthermore, for those of you who want to stay longer, Sunday is free. Finally we are available to accomodate all your travel arrangements and day-to-day necessities. View House Rules

    Because the explosion of Etna, our flight had been delayed. Although just staying in Catania for one night, this lovely place make us forgetting all the exhaustion and tiredness. Warm and lively atmosphere, thoughtful and kind household (though we speak different language) , and a local and delicious breakfast, painted a beautiful color for our trip in Sicily.

    My stay was great. I came to stay a few nights to visit some friends for New Year’s Eve and found the apartment to be large and beautifully decorated. The woman who runs the b&b is very kind and accommodating. The only small issue was that the apartment seemed rather chilly. I’m not sure if maybe the city isn’t used to the cold weather but it was a bit cold. Overall I recommend this place if you’d like an accommodating host and a wonderful terrace view.

    I loved it here. Such a sweet host! Eleanora makes sure you have everything you need. She was very generous and let me stay a long time after checkout because I had a late flight. Her home is gorgeous with a beautiful terrace and close to the city centre. The bed was really comfortable too. This is not really a place to go to meet people, it's more of a gorgeous B&B, ideal if you're looking for a luxury bohemian escape from the hostel scene. I'd definitely stay again. Thanks for a wonderful stay

    Very pleasant. As others have said, the b&b is a great experience in itself and Eleanora a great hostess. The shower needs work. Nonetheless a good place to stay in Catania.

    While the place is nice, and the host extremely kind and helpful, this is probably not the place for a solo traveller. It's a better proposition for a couple.
