If your idea of a $150/night B&B is a quaint inn with a resident owner who provides personalized hospitality and little touches that make all the difference such as coffee or tea 24/7, a nice sitting room, and a breakfast which features their own home made muffins or superb omelettes, then this is NOT the place for you. Other than the $150/night room rate, this is a warren of 5 rooms carved out of the bottom left lobby of a long since gone to seed building in a very sketchy neighborhood. The owners are absentee, and leave the joint in the hands of a friendly expat from England and a combination breakfast hostess and chambermaid. The rooms are decent size but furnished with the cheapest pinewood junk. The bathrooms are functional - toilet and shower. A few desultory packets of shower gel are left for the guests (no shampoo, sewing kit, q-tips, laundry bag) There is no coffee or tea in the room, or anywhere else for that matter. The TV has 150 channels all in Italian, no CNN or BBC. There is no easy chair or sofa. There is no sitting room for the guests.There is no parking at all despite the misleading hint in the listing, There was one glass in the bathroom and it was dirty. And street parking is dicey, while paid parking is 13 Euros a night one dismal block away. As for breakfast, mainly things that comes out of a cellophane wrapper-- melba toast, treacly pound cake, jelly, butter. No eggs. No omelettes. No fresh muffins. No fresh squeezed orange juice. Even the milk is from a shelf-stable container. But the very sweet lady will make you a cup of coffee. If you must stay in Catania you would do much better at a hotel, preferably one with parking.

We just spent 3 extremely comfortable nights here and could not recommend it more! Alessandro gave us a lovely warm welcome on our arrival and spent at least 20 minutes talking us through all the sights of Catania worth visiting. As other people have said the B and B is not situated in the most desirable of areas. However, we found if you turn right on leaving the B and B and then right again you can avoid those areas completely. We found it a fine walking distance from the centre of the town and sights. It is also situated very close to the train station and a 5 mins walk from the AST ticket office,where you can buy a return ticket to Mount Etna for just over 6 euros. The breakfast selection was ample.It was served in an attractive garden (a welcome oasis from the rubbish strewn streets of Catania) and a delicious way to start a day of sight seeing. The room was a good size and the Wi-Fi had excellent reception. Overall a brilliant and comfortable start to our Sicilian adventure.

Stayed here for one night before going on a five day hike in central Sicily. Not that easy to find. Suggest you take a taxi. The neighborhood is a bit dodgy, but only a few blocks from the old town. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was small but nicely appointed. Breakfast was a typical continental morning meal. They have a pleasant outside area in a small garden. There are several tables, it is a pleasant place to take your breakfast or to sit an enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening.

Behind two gates you'll find a secluded b&b which offers you a rather calm and spaced room. I don't have any negative remarks about the room, beds or breakfast but the location is next to a street crowded with refugees. About 400 mtrs. from Il Giardino you walk beside the old Catania quarter where the derelict houses are squatted by female and crossgendered prostitutes.

This B&B is housed in a beautiful old building called the Palazzo Fischetti in a little square not far from the station. The b&b is accessed througha number of doors andwe were carefully looked after by Stefania. Our room( 3) was large and comfortable. There was a fridge, toiletries, a hair drier. The shower worked well. Stefania served us a delicious breakfast and gave us a map. Thoughshe hasn't a lot of English she gets all the information across. The wifi works well. The area around is rather rundownand we did feel a bit nervous at night. However we would go back as it was very comfortable and good value and should be lovely in the summer when one cansit outside.
