Bad - Bed & Breakfast and Design, Catania
Perfect place for a solo traveler
Really nice little hotel. No need to order the breakfast through them as they just provide you with a coupon for the nearby café. So better to just explore the area and have your breakfast wherever you want to. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom updated and the building very quintessential Sicilian. There's also a nice terrace in the building to enjoy on a warm night.

You ultimately get what you paid for
You get what you pay for. Good location, breakfast which is rather poor, served in a cafe in front if bb. Neighbourhood leaves much to be desired but very ose to centre. Wouldn't recommend to solo female travellers.

Fall short of expectation for a 3 star B & B
Alessandro is helpful and responsive. Location is convenient. The design of the B&B is interesting. However, need to improve cleanliness of beddings, towels are too rough & old, bathroom seat have cracks and air conditioner has water drippings, etc. Not usual for breakfast not included at B&B... as well.

We came for a short trip to Catania to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We spent 4 nights here. Excellent location so close to the centre. Large en suite room which was cleaned daily. Informative and friendly staff. Highly recommend this place.
