Dirty bathroom and patio, uncomfortable bed

Posted Jul 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
The worst B&B ever! The owner met us in his beach attire which I found very awkward and unprofessional. He was rude and when we asked for Catania map he said he doesn't have it. We were showed the room and instantly regretted our decision to stay there. The room was old-fashioned, the patio and bathroom very dirty - cigarette butts and rubbish on the patio. The drainage in the shower didn't work properly, you had to stop running water midway and wait. There were notices everywhere with the orders to switch off the air conditioning and lights. Both mornings he would come to the reception at 7am and would start yelling into the phone and would wake us up. The bed was really uncomfortable and squeaky with the mattress springs poking painfully, so we didn’t get any sleep. The AC remote has been removed from the room so that the guests would not use it. Also he lied to us about the bus timetable to Etna. He told us that there were 2 buses a day, at 8am and 11am. Next morning we left at 9.30am, dragged our heavy backpacks with the hiking equipment in +30 heat to the bus station, only to find out that the 11am bus never existed. The only bus to Mount Etna leaves at 8am, end of story. We were close to tears to be honest. When we came back to the B&B, it was obvious that the owner let himself in for reasons that were not clear to me. The bins were not emptied, there was no toilet paper and the sheets were not changed. Overall impression of Sicily/Catania/this B&B - horrible.

Great hotel

Posted Mar 6, 2012
Pros: Location
Cons: No safe for your valuables
Location of this hotel is fantastic, right in the centre, so very easy to get to restaurants, cafes and bars, and to see all the sights.. The owner was very helpful in pointing out things to do and answering any questions we had. The room and bathroom were both fine. If you're after somewhere to sleep and relax for two or three hours in between holidaying, this is a great hotel.
