Returning yet another year for our 2 month stay in Historic Catania. Welcomed by the new GM, Nicola we were thrilled with the wonderful additions. A cafe upon entrance is delightful serving sumptuous selections for breakfast. Also used as a recreation room for reading, cocktails or to watch a sporting event. Compliments to Vania for her culinary/barista skills. Delicious homemade...

CONS: Very odd, I've never stayed at an empty apartment before! Plenty of drawers and cupboards but no cutlery, no glasses, no plates etc, though hilariously there was a kettle (but no spoons/mugs??) and some large cooking tins! Not sure what they expect you to do with those! Ridiculous, as if people are going to bring their own cutlery and...

Friendly and helpful but average service. Room is spacious, clean, equipped with basic amenities, and well maintained. Has an elevator- accessible to wheelchair users, bulk luggage and high floors. Less than 10 min walk to Piazza Duomo, less than 5 min to local (and cheap) eateries. A little climb away from a number of places of interest. What we like...

+ Very friendly people + Centrally located + Good shower + Big patio - You can hear everything through the walls - Cigarette smoke came from neighboring appartement through wall or ceiling - In the cold season very drafty and cold due to lack of sealings, probably typical for the country - More dishware would be nice

The flat was very spacious, and even though the furniture was a bit essential, everything was in perfect conditions. Three small balconies were giving space to chill out during fresh mornings. The residence is right in Catania city centre, and shops, amenities, museums are just round the corner. The spectacular city cathedral is just 5 minutes by foot, as well...

Két napot töltöttünk itt és teljesen meg voltunk elégedve a szobával. A szoba nagy és kényelmes. A lakáshoz tartozik egy kis konyha és mosógép is. Az utca zaja felhallatszik, de nem vészesen. A szobában jól működött a légkondi is. A wifi jel a szobában elég gyenge volt, de a folyosón kiváló. Mindenki számára ajánlani tudom. We spent two days in...

Very good apartment. The staff were friendly and helpful. Has all you need for cooking in the kitchen. The apartments are situated in 5 minutes walk from Piazza Duoma. We arrived at the hotel before the time of settlement and we settled without problems. The only negative is not a normal working WiFi. Worked only Facebook and then only in...

The place is huge, pretty clean and has an awesome balcony. Great for lazy morning ... breakfast & coffee on the balcony.The staff there was very nice. The building is at a walking distance from most of the sites of Catania. We regretted that our stay there was so short. Plus, Catania is a beautiful city!!
