Property Description

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, 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).

For how to reach us from the airport by bus/ car , please downloads maps and directions from www.5balconi.com

5 balconi is the perfect place to stay in Catania! Eccentric but cozy, the place is walking distance to all the main sights and great restaurants, the rooms were comfortable and clean, and Rob was an incredibly kind host who made sure we were set up with everything we needed. Cannot recommend this place enough.

Me and my mum had SUCH a great stay here last week. Rob and Cristina really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and at home. An absolutely delicious breakfast with tasty fresh blood orange juice and ricotta croissants, a lovely outside space on the balcony to street-watch and the whole place is full of character. They also looked after of one of our suitcases for several days in between stays when I couldn't carry it due to an injury. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
