We stayed at this lovely B&B in Catania for two nights in July 2013. It is located on the first floor of a Baroque building and is about 10-15 minutes walk to Villa Bellini and Catania's legendary markets. The room is one of the best we have stayed in over several years of travelling in Italy. It was big, beautifully...

A lovely floor of rooms each with an ensuite. The room I stayed in had a wonderful high ceiling decoration and ornate lighting. Pristinely clean in the room and bathroom. Breakfast is a wonderful experience of smiling, helpful staff with a fresh twist to breakfast. Fresh squeezed juices and home made cakes along with the usual cearel selection all in...

We stayed at this B&B during Easter week. We didn't have previous reservations and they were able to accomodate us by a knock at the door. Georgio and Mathilde are the owners, a young couple very busy making a successful and comfortable place to stay in Catania. Rooms were large, great bathroom, nice attention to details throughout, even down to...

I discovered this place via a friend who lives in Catania. Ever since my first visit there in June of 2012, I have made this exquisite B&B my home whenever I travel to Catania. Perfect location to city center, shopping and lovely restaurants and outings. Extremely helpful and welcoming staff. Beautifully decorated and unique rooms. A must!!

Had a great stay. The B&B was beautiful with a large room and big bathroom. Lovely decor and comfy bed. Shower had good pressure. Breakfast was nice with fresh orange juice which we thought was delicious with croissants, sliced.meat, boiled eggs and cereal.

We arrived in Catania late at night and attempted to book in to this hotel. Despite having booked via an on-line booking site - they had no record of our booking. We were gutted! Despite this the staff were so apologetic and helpful and immediately rang another hotel a few 100 metres away and booked us into the other hotel....

The B&B is located in a large residential building in a pleasant location within easy reach of the train station and city centre. There is parking behind the building. The rooms are very spacious, air-conditioned, clean and tastefully decorated; I was particularly impressed with the artwork on the vaulted ceilings. There is WiFi in every room.

Antiche Volte is a B&B located OUT of the city center of Catania. Although the lady at the front desk told us that the walk to the center was about 10 min, we like to correct her as the walk is at least, when you really step on it, about 20 minutes minimum! And we are tall peoplle with long...

Dear Madam, Thank you for leaving a review on tripadvisor. Some small clarification: the B & B is located in the City CENTER onf Catania, Via Umberto, in fact, is one of the main street linking the sea to the gardens of Villa Bellini (via Etnea). The center of Catania is very large so the distance 10 or 20 minutes...

I recently stayed at this B&B for a long weekend. It was extremely clean and wonderfully decorated. The rooms are all unique, most of which feature beautiful vaulted ceilings. The staff is extremely helpful and the breakfast is delicious! I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone staying in Catania.

THE PLACE: This B&B sits in a spacious apartment in a residential building, quite conveniently located, in an elegant part of the town, and at a walking distance (20 min) from the old city (you don't want to stay in the old city as it is quite dirty and can be a bit dodgy in certain parts).
