I booked this apartment for a 10 day stay in Catania, Sicily for myself and 4 friends.
First, getting there was very easy: To travel from the airport to the apartment, one only needs to take the Alibus. This bus will drop you 2 blocks from the apartment.
This property is walking distance from many great features. The infamous fish market is two blocks away (providing you with delicious, fresh food and a great cultural experience). It is walking distance to many historical sites, bus stops, and restaurants too. Really, the location couldn't be more perfect!
Next, the apartment itself is even nicer than what is pictured. When my friends and I first entered the property, we were struck by its size and cleanliness. The bathrooms (2 of them) were large and well-kept. All kitchen appliances (stove, oven, toaster oven, refrigerator, freezer, washer) were in good working order. Beds were clean and comfortable. The only issue: the 4 wooden chairs in the kitchen were flimsy and we were afraid to sit on them.
While the property is on a noisy street, when you close the windows, it is very quiet. None of us had any problems sleeping due to the traffic.
Ivan, the property owner, does not speak much English, but is incredibly friendly and makes an honest attempt to communicate. He even provided us with a large plate of fruit and cold water when we arrived! He was quick to solve any problems. For example: the Wi-Fi stopped working one day. I sent a quick text to Ivan and he was at the apartment in 10 minutes!
We had an incredible 10 day stay in Catania. I would highly recommend this property.
