The staff were very helpful with information about the area, where to eat, where to catch the bus for our next destination, where to get stamps etc.. Also, the owners offered to pick us up form the airport for 17 Eur. but, i chose to just take a cab so that I would not inconvenience them. The driver felt like taking us to the cleaners which was obvious to me as we passed the same bowling alley at least twice and the meter kept rising. We arrive at the B&B with a total fare of 47 Eur. The owner negotiated it down to 40 for us. Don't trust a Catania cab driver.
Great experience/staff very helpful. Recently renovated but our bathroom must of had a leak from ceiling so some mould developing. Only there one night so I never noticed until morning.
I would definitely stay again if the repair was made.

Although the hotel seemed very busy, our four night stay here had a very helpful staff and manager. The reception rooms for meetings/weddings, family reunions, etc. are available. The hallways, restaurants and hotel rooms/suites were very clean and quiet. It is in a great location. Our 3rd floor balcony from our suite (a two-floor, bath and a half loft that could accommodate 3-4 people) had a view of Mt. Etna! Daily breakfast was very satisfying and and the Happy Hour/Apertivo on the rooftop bar was a very good value. Our king-sized bed was very firm and comfortable. Would definitely consider visiting again--there is so much to see -- not only in Catania, but an hour-2 hours away are other beautiful cities to visit using local, inexpensive ground transportation which is right outside the hotel's doors! We felt very welcomed by the local people and just wish we had more time to enjoy the beautiful churches, museums, parks and restaurants, trattoria's, and pasticeria's! We'll be back!

This is a really nice hotel with lovely grounds. Although everything was not perfect, the staff more than compensated for this by the effort they put into customer service. I highly recommend this hotel if you need to stay close to Catania airport. Also recommended if you want a nice quiet and relaxing holiday.

"Airport connection - a bit expensive though nice"
Stayed there for one night - had to leave very early in the morning to catch a flight from Catania airport. The hotel has little pool - though it was chilly to swim. The hotel has a beach, though it is open from June 1st only... The restaurant in the hotel was nice but looked a bit posh (it is 4 star hotel). When arriving, call hotel to book you a taxi. It costs 28 euros from the airport to go by airport taxi. With hotel it costs 15 euros only...

Nicely modernised hotel in nice old building, staff very pleasant, excellent breakfast, and ideal location near the impressive and lively central area; and even handy for the train and bus stations. Could not fault it. And Catania is a really worthwhile city to visit, so easy to take in if you are flying in to Catania airport.
