This was one of the best places we stayed at, out of about 15 all over Italy. The hosts were very friendly and even though they weren't there a lot of the time, they answered my text message promptly. The room was very pleasant and clean, and lots of nice towels were available. The location was within walking distance to... More

We highly recommend Charme B&B Alhambra - Simone and her family treated us like royalty. Rooms are tastefully appointed, spotless and comfortable. Breakfasts are great with a very good cup of cappuccino! Simone was also very helpful with on-line bookings for trains, buses and taxi services. Giarre is a lovely little place with not too many tourists, so you get... More

The hotel is located in a beautifully restored house, not far from the city center. The city is not charming or really pleasant, but it is near to everything, from the sea to the Etna. Our room was huge, with shiny parquet on the floor, an amazing painted ceiling and a tiny balcony. The bathroom was large and clean, with... More

Beautiful place, very nice and friendly people! Every time again. The beach is approx one km downwards, downtown about 5 minutes with the Etna in the background. Thanks for all, CU at Giarre! (~1/2 hrs from catania by motorway)

We have stayed at B&B Alhambra for four years in a row. It is centrally located in Giarre/Riposto, and only 5 minutes from the Autostrada. It is only a 30 minute ride to the shopping in Catania from the train station and less than 40 minutes to the airport by car. Taormina is only about 35 minutes. Alhambra is a... More

Alhambra is by far the best place to stay in Giarre / Riposto. Centrally located between Catania (major city), and Taormina (tourist mecca) and the beaches at Fondachello and Fuimifreddo. Easy access to the great shopping street in Giarre (Corso Italia) and dinner options. Riposto is just down the Corso another kilometer. Simona and her family run a clean, efficient,... More

The B&B is lovely with very spacious rooms and high ceilings. Bathroom very well appointed. Giarre is well-placed if you want to visit Taormina, Etna and Catania and is a much cheaper option than Taormina for example. If this is what you are looking for then this B&B is ideal. However, Giarre itself is not very nice and not much... More
