The owner is very nice and friendly, but we had to call him to meet us at the location and waited for 20 minutes. The accommodation is right in the center of Catania, but complete service is far from anything we've experienced in other cities when travelling around Sicily. Both, the street and the building are very dirty and smelly, carrying the luggage up the stairs was difficult because of the scaffolding blocking the staircase. Rooms are very dampy and the toilet is not very nice. Breakfast is very poor.
