Good location....grotty city

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The opulent dining room with chandeliers and ceiling frescos was magnificently redolent of another age - quite a contrast to the busy car square below
Location: Catania is not a pleasant city....but the main squares, markets (incl fish market) are within easy walking distance. The bus station is close by.
Our room looked down on a narrow street where the daily dramas of Italian city life played out below. Our room was modern, clean and functional, the bathroom excellent. The two men who run this hotel could not do enough to help us. They were friendly, informative & funny! It's a pity there are no lifts - the 50 stairs are hard going with suitcases!

The location is great, right across from the train station and bus to airport. Metro close by. The kitchen was always open so one could make tea or have a snack all of which were gratis. The owner provided good information for getting around to sights. So-sos. Room very small for a couple. Bed was pretty hard but everything spotless in room and bedding was crisp. We asked for a quiet room and were provided with a very quiet room. Good place to spend a couple nights (we were there for two nights) in Rome.

A little gem

Posted Aug 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
I have to admit that on driving through the outskirts of Catania I was a bit concerned but it turns out to be a very beautiful city. The same goes for this B&B. At first from the outside it does not look inviting but once you are in it is beautifully finished, modern and fresh with WiFi and air con in all rooms. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is an honesty fridge that should be double the price that they charge. Highly recommended.

Great hospitality

We could not fault the B&B for the care and attention the owners give to their guests. The rooms are spacious and well kept. Breakfasts had plenty of choice with a multitude of cakes to choose from as well as the usual fayre. Do not judge the B&B by the building it is housed in, as it is in complete contrast to it. We would recommend that visitors use the main road that the B&B is situated in to walk to the centre of Catania. only 5-10 minutes away, as the other route takes you through a less salubrious area.

Great place to stay in Catania

Posted Nov 2, 2012
Pros: Staff very helpful and room cleanliness was good, also wireless internet was secure and reliable. Room was quiet at night.
Cons: A bit tricky to find the first night
Location: Close to Piazza Duomo and the markets. Need to avoid walking around the small back streets alone at night but that's the same in any large city.
Very good place to stay. Room was clean. Cristian & Angelo (the owners) were very nice. Breakfast was good if a bit different from what I would normally eat, e.g. cakes, etc. Fruit, yoghurt and cereal provided also. Good coffee. Shower cubicle quite small. Fine for me but if you were a larger person, you might have trouble closing the door! A bit difficult to find the entrance to the B&B. Look out for the wrought iron gates and push the button for XX Miglia. Very secure and much nicer inside than it looks from the outside. Beautiful paintings on the walls and ceilings in the breakfast room.

Unsual and friendly B&B

Posted Oct 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Excellent exotic breakfast with a wde range of local cakes as well as more traditional continental breakfast items. Over our 18 days in Sicily this is the best breakfast range we have come across having stayed in a wide range of hotels, etc. Property is on the fourth & fifth floor of a building with no lift, so need to be able bodied. A couple of rooms have a very steep stairs so if this is an issue for you make sure to ask for the other rooms. Some amazing ceiling paintings in the fourth floor breakfast room and some of the bedrooms. Not in the touristy end of town but convienent for the train and bus station.

kindness of staff & location

Posted Sep 14, 2012
Pros: good service
Cons: a bit of noise in the morning as the bedroom was next to the dining room
Location: close to city center and train station
The hotel is just at 5 minutes walking distance to the bus/train station and also very close to the city center. The hotel is clean and has lots of character. A big thank you goes to the staff who has always been happy to help with any queries. They have been very very helpful. Thank you guys for your kindness. If we are back in Catania, we'll chose the hotel XX Miglia again. Many thanks and good luck.
