Two nights in CataniaPosted Nov 30, 2017
Pros: Charming and stylish
Location: Many bars resterant and sites to visit.
We spent two nights in this hotel. The room was very ornate and had many interesting artefacts. The balcony and French Windows overlooked a church and resterant and we watched the locals directing people trying to park in the busy street below for a small fee. Breakfast was served in the kitchen by Teresa and lovely china and linen adorned the table. Freshly made juices and an array of local cheese bread cakes etc were provided in abundance. Parking and driving in Catania was challenging and my husband opted to use the hotel parking facility for €10 a night which he thought a little expensive. Catania itself had many interesting sites but spoiled by graffiti. Also hungry refugees were very evident and the locals seemed inclined to ignore them.

Absolutely Magical!Posted Sep 25, 2017
This was a magical place to stay! The B and B is in an historic building in a charming and historic part of Catania, and our room balcony overlooked an old church. The room was so beautifully decorated with antique furniture, chinoiserie, and embroidered linens. The owner had beautiful taste! The 4 guest rooms belonged in Architectural Digest magazine, and had gorgeous architectural elements such as high ceilings and original tiles.... This B and B was so visually stunning that it should be a FIVE STAR hotel! The owner Teresa was warm, friendly and very helpful. She was always available to help us with recommendations, and her adorable doggie was on hand to play with us and to greet us with a warm welcome every time we returned to the hotel. The breakfasts were fantastic with home made cakes and other delights, and were served family style with the few other international guests staying at this intimate 4 room B and B. We can't wait to visit Teresa again!
Perfect choicePosted Sep 25, 2017 on Hotels
We were very happy with our choice - it was an easy walk from the B&B to the main sights and we had spacious, spotless and comfortable rooms with a great breakfast included. Our hostess could not have been more helpful, helped us orientate ourselves and made us all feel very welcome. My son even enjoyed playing the guitar that was left available for use!

Service Above and Beyond - Definitely Stay HerePosted Jun 5, 2017
Pros: The hotel is in a great location. It is a very homely and welcoming place and it was a delight to stay here
Location: Great location, right in the heart of Catania with most of the sites easily accessible on foot
This is a truly delightful place stay and we can't recommend it highly enough. We had the top floor (Leela), which included the lovely rooftop garden/terrace, and it was very comfortable with lots of space. Theresa, who runs the B & B, is the nicest, most helpful person you could hope to meet. The level of service from Theresa is above and beyond anything that I have experienced anywhere in the world. She even helped us after we had checked out and we left a bag in the taxi that dropped us off at the airport! Her breakfasts are excellent including some very lovely cakes!! If you are visiting Sicily and targeting Catania you must stay here

A gem!Posted May 31, 2017
Teresa and her beautiful B&B provided the perfect backdrop to our quick Sicily stay. The rooms and private bathrooms are beautiful, and Teresa is full of excellent recommendations for restaurants in the area. The location of this B&B is perfect; very near Via Etnea and all the exciting spots, but on a quiet street. Teresa went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful, even waking up early on our first day so that we could drop luggage off before check-in so we didn't have to lug it on our tour of Mt. Etna and Taormina.

Beautiful B&B on historic streetPosted May 30, 2017
Pros: It's spacious, beautiful, immaculate and very centrally located, a very easy walk from just about all the major points of interest.
Cons: Nothing - it is perfect.
Location: Near the main shopping street, several historic churches, the fishmarket and the castle as well as dozens of restaurants, yet on a quiet street.
We came from the airport already advised (by e-mail) by our hostess Theresa about how much the cab should charge! We received a prompt and very gracious welcome and assistance with luggage, and were shown into a very high-ceilinged and beautifully decorated suite of rooms with flower-laden French balconies overlooking the street. Each morning our hostess provided a lavish selection of breakfast choices and made introductions all around the table. She marked up a map of the town with attractions and recommended restaurants and was most helpful with any questions we had, as well as making arrangements for a wonderful tour of Etna for us. Throughout the stay, she was readily availble and extremely helpful. We hope someday to return to Catania and would not dream of staying anyplace else.

Excellent stay!Posted Apr 3, 2017 on Hotels
A wonderful place from the moment we arrived. Teresa couldn't have been more helpful. The B&B is situated in a quiet street, just a few mins walk from all the main attractions. Plenty of great restaurants to try within an easy walk

Superb bed and breakfastPosted Apr 3, 2017
Pros: Everything! Atmosphere perfect for a visit to Catania, hospitality, spaciousness, comfort, location, breakfast....it was an amazing experience.
Location: A few blocks from the center...Piazza Duomo, the amazing fish market, Via Etnea, restaurants, the opera, walking to the Roman arena, the Monastery
Really beautiful bed and breakfast with exceptional hostess. (I do not use these words lightly) Teresa is the ideal hostess looking out for everything you might want, prepares a fantastic breakfast, and is there to answer whatever questions you might have or suggest things to do. The room itself was amazing as to comfort but also to style, decor, you were really in a Catanian palace. There are only three rooms so you will have to be lucky like we were to stay here. The location is excellent as well, easy walk to the touristic center.
