Nice B&B in the middle of the historic centre

Posted Aug 25, 2016
Pros: The hotel was located in a top location on the main street to the historic centre, vibrant well into the night with tourists and locals alike.
Cons: It is recommended that guests seeking a silent location do consider the actual location of B&B Stesicoro before making a choice - it is city centre.
Location: Historic centre, major bus routes/stops within 100 m of the property, fish markets, duomo, churches, trips to Acitrezza, AciCastello, Mt Etna, Coast
I have stayed at B&B Stesicoro for 5 nights. The reservation was made through Expedia and managed very well by the manager of the B&B. The entry of the B&B is located in a little back street, and contrary to some comments I have read on various sites, the location is extremely safe and heavily patrolled by local police, police and carabinieri. On arrival I was welcomed by Fabio, the owner-manager of the property, who undertook every effort to explain the amenities and provided information of the area. Breakfast was served from 7.30 am each day and consisted of fresh fruit, fresh pastries, freshly made coffee to order as well as small goods and cheeses. The breakfast area was clean and well maintained during breakfast service. Rooms were cleaned and made up every morning - this included arranging beds and linen.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Wifi was great. The rooms were clean, and looked like they had been remodeled recently.

Don't let the alley put you off

The entrance to the b&b is down a foreboding alley, but once you make it through the threshold the place itself is nice. It's on a main square in Catania, connected to the main shopping street - so very handy for shops/restaurants/bars, but with the corresponding noice

Great stay. The guys that run the place are really really helpful and friendly and made me feel very welcome. Having an extensive kitchen, with everything you could think of was a big bonus.

well situated and very helpful staff

Don't judge a book by its cover, a small front door is in a dark alley, it did not look like much plus the residence is on the second floor. As they answered the door we felt at home, they only have 5 rooms with all you need. We had a full breakfast as good as it gets in Sicily. But what mad this place great it the night watchmen who help us with directions, recommended restaurant and suggested places to visit that made our stay in Catania enjoyable. As we were driving around Sicily the only down fall is parking in the municipal garage a few blocks away just across the town market

Very nice room on 2nd floor of a Baroque building - no lift but staff carried bags upstairs. Owner and staff cheerful and pleasant. Room on corner of busy Via Etnea and Piazza Stesicoro -very noisy at night. On street parking hard to find.

Passaggio a Catania

Posted Oct 11, 2016
Pros: posizione centrale
Cons: tv distante, camera un po' rumorosa
Mi sono fermato due giorni al B & B . Posizione centralissima in via Neve angolo piazza Stesicoro a circa quindici minuti a piedi dalla stazione centrale e comodo all'alibus, la navetta per l'aeroporto. Ubicato al secondo piano senza ascensore. Ambiente accogliente. Check-in gentilmente eseguito al difuori dell'orario indicato. Personale disponibile, premuroso. Camera spaziosa, bene arredata, armadio ampio, letto comodo, un po' rumorosa la notte perché affaccia su via Etnea, la via del passeggio di Catania, televisore di medie dimensioni, distante, aria condizionata efficiente, una abat-jour non funzionante. Colazione un po' al di sotto dello standard dei b & b frequentati.

Godmorgen !!! Tak for din anmeldelse og for dårlig score, at han gav os. Det sker, er det stadig vanskeligere at behage alle. Bare en skam, at skrive som en anonym vi ikke forstår godt, hvordan og med hvem vi var forkert.
