Good view but shabby

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was very neglected and we ended up leaving 1 day earlier. For two days there was no hot water for a shower. Got warm then cold again. Toilet seat was broken. A number of lights didn't work. The one in dressing room was off and room was so dark that I only realised when I got home that I had left a dark shirt behind.

The apartment had definitely been styled up for the photos. Needs some TLC

Spacious, clean, with everything needed for a self-inclusive stay - good kitchen, shower, beds.

  • 5 of 5

Baroque Catania has everything - lovely people, great food whether dining or shopping to eat in. Plenty to see in Catania. The bus station is central to get to anywhere in Sicily. And the weather is great so no complaints. Somewhere I'd go to again and it's only 3 hours away. The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped and the owner, Salvo, was charming and happy to help with tips on how to get the best out of our holiday. Great holiday.

Comfortable and well equipped apartment with a clear view of Etna and the Duomo dome. Great!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet apartment near everything catania has to offer. An easy walk to good restaurants, museums, and cultural sites. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped whether you want to make coffee or cook a full meal. The apartment is at the top of this lovely building full of character, so know you have a hike to get there. Lots of steps, but worth the climb : )

I highly recommend it, and thank out host Salvo, for his knowledge of the city and his willingness to share his recommendations for food, sites, pleasures of Catania.

Grazie Mille, Salvo!

arrogante verhuurder

  • 1 of 5

Door een sterfgeval in de familie en de begrafenis op de dag dat wij zouden vertrekken hebben we na contact te hebben gehad met de verhuurder onze reis een dag opgeschoven. Er zou voor ons voor de laatste nacht nog een kamer beschikbaar zijn. Op de dag van aankomst bleek hij een mail gestuurd te hebben dat er een overboeking was, maar uiteindelijk had hij toch nog een kamer beschikbaar. Op vrijdagochtend zouden we wisselen. We moesten onze koffers maar in zijn appartement zetten, zei een dame. Op de vraag of we eerst onze kamer mochten zien kwam er een man die met dezelfde mededeling kwam: zet je bagage hier maar neer. Toen we doorvroegen naar de kamer kwam meneer Salvo zelf naar de deur en zei bot dat hij geen kamer meer had. Wel belooft, maar een belofte is bij hem niet bindend. En daar stonden wij. Hevig teleurgesteld en ook heel boos om het feit dat hij zijn toezegging niet nakwam. Hij bood ook niet aan om een oplossing te zoeken. Echt, ik zal dit appartement bij niemand aanbevelen. En niet alleen om het arrogante gedrag van Salvo. Van de 3 airco's werkte er maar één (op halve kracht), de douche gaf zo'n klein straaltje dat het moeilijk douchen was en deze was in warmte ook moeilijk te regelen. Op de site ziet het er allemaal veel mooier uit dan het in werkelijkheid is. Enigste positieve: de bedden lagen prima.
