Great apartment, not conveniently located

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was clean and spacious, with comfortable bed and good hot showers. Unfortunately, it is located in an area that is almost an hour walk from the train/bus stations as well as the main attractions of Catania. We spent 3 to 5 hours each day getting back-and-forth ( waiting on buses and riding buses) and ended up taking a taxi back to the apartment at the end of each day. We asked the owner to refund the last two of five nights so we could move closer to the train station but he refused. He also refused to reimburse any of ourTaxi expenses saying that we should have known from the website how far it was. Website actually says “close to the center of Catania and the sea “. NOT!!

Also, if you are thinking of relaxing on the nicepatio furniture shown in the photo, it has been replaced with crummy plastic furniture with no cushions! Nice TV if you speak Italian.

Beautiful, clean apartment with a great balcony

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Alberto's place with my family for almost a week. Catania is a very busy place, almost never sleeps. The apartment is located closely to the city center, somewhere at the border between the real quit residential areas and the busy center. It was easy to get in the center of the city but it was perfect for good night sleeps to. The area of the apartment is full of local shops, bakeries, butcher shops and so on. We rented a car and the house has a yard where we were able to park safely, so that's a good point too. Also the location of this place also allows you to get out of the town easily (airport is in 10 minutes tops by car). Be aware though, driving a car in Catania is not like in any part if Sicily or Catania, it is way more challenging.

The apartment is clean and really well equipped, air-condition, coffee machine, washing mashing, flat screen and so on. It has a great balcony, a bit noisy but perfect for chilling, having a wine or even for having barbecues.

I was sleeping on the couch and it was comfortable, and the others said that all of the beds were comfortable too.

Alberto was a really great, and trustworthy host. He was really helpful and flexible about almost everything (early check-in check-out and so on).

So to sum up, I really recommend Alberto's place, I think it's a good choice, especially for those who are not planning on visiting just Catania. By car every major place was reachable (Etna, Taormina, Siracusa..) , and this place proved to be a good base point.

Thanks again for that.

Eine schöne Woche mit Freunden in Catania !

  • 4 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung war in einem recht guten Zustand, wenn man davon absieht, dass sie nicht soooo sauber war (staubig, einiges an Geschirr stand schmutzig im Schrank, die Spülmaschine wusch das Geschirr nicht sauber ...). Leider gab es nur ein Weinglas!

Die Schlüsselübergabe klappte gut, auch der Kontakt zum Vemieter vorab war sehr nett.

Una estancia para repetir.

  • 5 of 5

El ático es muy agradable y soleado con una bonita terraza para disfrutar tomando el sol o una copa al anochecer, la casa dispone de todos los utensilios imprescindibles para poder, si se quiere cocinar e ideal para cuatro personas (sería deseable un poco mas de luz en el baño y la cocina) . Aconsejamos tener vehículo para moverse, el bus que para delante la casa es impredecible . El propietario Alberto es muy agradable et très gentil y dispuesto a solucionarte cualquier problema.

Gracias por unas bonitas vacaciones

Inma & Francho

Très bonne location

  • 5 of 5

Propriétaire très sympathique au téléphone. Très bon accueil par une amie à lui. Appartement très joli, en bon état, beaucoup de serviettes de toilette très confortables, électro ménager qui fonctionne. Beau balcon terrasse où le linge sèche très rapidement et parfaitement. Pour rentrer dans la résidence portail fermé dont on a les clés, donc sécurisé, aucun problème de stationnement. Trois supermarchés pas loin du tout pour faire les courses, boulangerie, pâtisserie et vendeur de pizzas à quelques pas. Je conseille cette location à des familles de trois enfants (chambre de deux lits une place séparés, chambre lit deux places, canapé dans le salon où un troisième enfant peut dormir également). Belle vue, on n'entand pas trop les bruits extérieurs (à pat certains klaxons....)
