A very affordable and pleasant apartment. It is very modern, clean and spacious - two bedrooms and a fold out double in the lounge room. Shower worked well; has a washing machine and a lovely clean open kitchen - great for families doing the own cooking thing. Sweeping views of the sea on one side and views of Mt Etna on the other. Nearby to two good restaurants and a fabulous pastry shop - cannola to die for. We hired a car - don't know about the public transport. If going to Sicily again I'd book this one.
I stayed one night and it was just me. Maybe this place is more for larger groups and in warmer weather.
The staff was very helpful. I discovered AS116 was closed in the direction I needed to go (discovered by chance) and they were helpful in finding another route for me.
They could improve the breakfast. The cereal was stale.
I stayed for one night and Lorenza was super lovely very charming old style building in centre with market across the street and close to the duomo,room was tastefully decorated and comfy with great breakfast and good coffee

We spent 3 nights there. Staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast is very nice and the room was spacious and clean. The B&B is well located but not noisy. The only thing was the wifi which wasn't great and TV didn't work well but it was a good excuse to disconnect anyway. Would highly recommend the place!
Our friends had stayed twice before at these apartments and we had high hopes. Unfortunately, the apartment did not live up to those hopes! On arrival, we were disappointed and tried to get the apartment changed, but this proved impossible. Our apartment, 3C, was gloomy, on two levels and quite dangerous. The upper level, containing the bed, was squeezed under the low sloping roof and we both suffered from heads bumped against the wooden beams. The lower level, with the bathroom, living room and kitchen, was accessed by a steep spiral staircase, painted in a rust colour. Negotiating this at night, to visit the loo, nearly caused us both to fall and was really a hazard. There were no facilities to hang towels or wet clothes after swimming and the one window overlooked a building site!
It also overlooked a much more pleasant apartment in the same complex with a lovely roof-top terrace, which looked lovely! Our advice is to book through the staff directly at the hotel. We stayed for ten days and it would have been much better to discuss with the staff, who speak good English, exactly which apartment from the 17 available would suit your needs best.
The really good part of our stay was the kindness and assistance from the reception staff who had their office on the same floor. Their help with local knowledge and booking excursions was invaluable.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Thank you Julia and Julian for letting us leave our luggage after check out. The hotel has a nice and relaxed atmosphre, with a good
room and private bathroom, the kitchen downstairs is very convient. We had a great time staying at the hotel and visiting Catania.
Our first impression of the hotel was the male receptionist. Unfortunately, our elderly taxi driver spoke no English insisted on going into the hotel, as we questioned the taxi fare which had been inflated from 15 to 40 euros.The receptionist dealt with the taxi driver with diplomacy and tact. We were then taken to our room which was exceptional - spacious,extremely clean, bathrobes and slippers, large flat screen TV, balcony, sofa and more room than we knew what to do with. The pool was lovely but you had to wear a bathing hat before being allowed to swim. The restaurant was spacious, the food was good but my only criticism was the menu didn't change. However, the choice at breakfast was excellent.We had a lovely stay at this hotel.
