A last minute booking led to one of the best stays I've had in months!

Giuseppe is the best host you could ask for, friendly, knowledgeable and well connected locally.

The room was fantastic! One of many themes available, but every detail was spot on.

Was so sad to leave, as Giuseppe really made me feel like one of the family!

Can't wait to come back!

We stayed at Etna Glo in the Asia Room for 3 nights on our trip to Sicily. The room was clean and spacious, and we were able to get a pack and play type bed for our two year old daughter to sleep in which was very nice. The owner, Giuseppe, is a fantastic, friendly host and has great information to give about Zafferana including things to see and restaurants to visit. He also was able to provide us with discounts to be used during our visit to Etna itself which saved quite a few euros from the regular cost.

Breakfast on the patio was nice with a good selection of pastries, bread, meat, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, juices, and coffee.

The sign for the property is a little small to see, and our GPS had a difficult time accounting for some of the one way streets in Zafferana, but navigating by address number and remembering that the property is right on the corner of an intersection made it easy to find. Everything in Zafferana is within walking distance.

We only spent one night here but had a wonderful stay with a very hospitable inn keeper, Giuseppe. We stayed in the Asia room and it was quite nice. Giuseppe remarked about how good the water was and after visiting other cities in Sicily, he is absolutely correct. Think about it every time you take a drink. He was also very helpful giving us directions and in finding restaurants, including making arrangement for us to get a discount. Definitely recommend staying here. He was preparing breakfast for us before anyone was up and was helpful throughout making coffee over and over again for those of (Americans) who love our morning coffee.

Room Tip: stay out of the first floor room. Upstair rooms are better.

We loved our stay at EtnaGloB&B. We were there to enjoy the food festival, Ottoberata, and were just one easy block from the front edge. Our room was lovely, and the location could not have been better even without the festival. Easy walking to the attractions, and lots of cafes and restaurants close by. Giuseppe, our host was most helpful in directing us to the best way to view Mt. Etna and even gave us a voucher for our lunch at the cable car station. All in all, a delightful place to stay in a delightful small town.

I truly can't say enough about this B&B, Guiseppe and Letizia made me feel like I was home. They picked me up from the bus and welcomed me into their beautiful B&B, which is centrally located. The room was gorgeous, and immaculately clean. Breakfast was amazing, complete with warm pastries and homemade jam. Guiseppe even drove me to a trail head for a morning hike (and made sure I had a midday snack). Etna GloB&B is the perfect place to stay.

Each room of the family hotel has its unique style, for example USA, Paris, Africa.
Friendly helpful stuff, tastiest breakfasts, clean and cozy rooms!

Location is perfect - the city is in 2 mins by foot but it's quite and peaceful. It's convenient to get to Etna by your car or by bus.

Thanks to owners for such nice stay!

Room Tip: Ask about the country you love more style (for ex.Africa or USA), call the hotel and discuss, they a...

This is a newly appointed B&B centrally located in the small town of Zafferana, with easy access to Mount Etna.
The owner Guiseppe is very friendly and most helpful, going out of his way to give directions, suggestions and advice on the locality and Sicily in general.
Our room was comfortable and modern. The breakfast was delicious, fresh rolls and pastries brought daily by Guiseppe served with fruit juice and coffee.
Also on the property is a wonderfully relaxing spa with Hydro-pool, Steam room and a local masseuse is on hand for a massage, which is very welcome after a stressful days driving on the Sicilian roads.
Thank you again to Guiseppe, would highly recomend
