    my Catania 2nd Visit just as good as first

    Picone b and b was very pleasant stay. The host Michele was friendly and his cleaner. Got bearings quickly about location which was superb fantastically close to daily market. Bellini park and Via Etnea down to elephant and all sites fishmarket bus station to dline play as. Old plumbing I got used to noises from bathroom but Catania is old so i understand. So altogether good b and b very convenient for Alibus park Bellini stop and all Catania sights. GREAT choice of breakfast in or ticket for cafe up street. Very happy to recommend and communication and help good with google translates help. Would recommend. Only down side was 2 channels on tele not necessary for holiday tho. Cleaned daily and fridge to keep items cold was good. Rate 4.6/5 and great for price :-)

    Quaint, generous intro to Sicily.....

    This old but well kept property was like a much needed refuge after a very long travel day into a chaotic city we'd never traveled to. We rented a car at the airport and so arrived onto the hectic streets not really knowing what hit us. We passed the hotel a couple of times because was difficult to locate; we parked nearby and one of us had to find it on foot. I rang bell to large door with big sign and Michele was there to greet me. He jumped into the car with us and directed us to near by parking garage where we could leave the car. He spoke very little English and we spoke little Italian but we managed to communicate the necessities! He carried my bag all the way back to the hotel and showed us to our room. We had two balconies overlooking a bustling street. Room had everything we needed even if it was quite old. The bathroom here is Eco-friendly and so you have to put waste paper in bin NOT in the toilet. We've had to do that in other countries before so were used to it. Michele let us store our bags in his spare storage room the entire next day because we were hiking Mount Etna-he was SO very kind and really made our first experience in Sicily a great one.

    Good small b&b

    Michel who runs the place very helpful and accommodating. Excellent location. Clean room. Breakfast a little limited but I don't think Sicilians eat large breakfasts. Also, throwing toilet paper in a basket and not down the toilet (see other reviews) a little strange but not uncommon in Sicily In general. I'd highly recommend Picone
