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.

Luftiges, dank hoher Decken großzügiges Appartment mit herrlichem Ausblick über Catania auf das Meer

  • 5 of 5

Die Kommunikation mit Alberto lief sehr unkompliziert und herzlich. Seine Tips waren sehr hilfreich, er war immer erreichbar. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, Dank Klimaanlage gut klimatisiert, das Auto konnte gut abgesichert kostenfrei geparkt werden. Herrlich waren die Abend auf der Dachterrasse, auch im Hochsommer war es dort wegen des Windes nie zu warm. Der Stadtteil ist geprägt von typischen sizilianischen Grillständen, hervorragenden Pasticcerien (Freni nebenan ist fantastisch!) und man ist fern des Touristenstroms. Alles für die Selbstversorgung Nötige findet man in direkter Nachbarschaft. Es lohnt sich aber, für weitere Wege einen Leihwagen zu nehmen, der Busverkehr ist alles andere als zuverlässig.

Das Doppelbett hat eine hervorragende Matratze, die Matratzen im kleineren Schlafzimmer sind für Menschen mit Rückenproblemen nicht wirklich geeignet, für Kinder sollten sie kein Problem sein.

Alles in allem ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt in einer sehr schönen, urbanen Unterkunft.

Dieser Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine modern eingerichtete Wohnung erlebt. Bushaltestelle vor der Haustür. Ein sehr freundlicher Vermieter.

Gut waere ein Busfahrplan, ein Stadtplan und eine Wegneschreibung zum Meer.

Tolle Wohnung, toller Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Bushaltestelle ist direkt vorm Haus, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten um die Ecke.

Hilfreich wäre ein Busplan, also wohin fährt welcher Bus und wann und ein Stadtplan, eventuell auch einige Ausflugstipps.

Sehr netter Gastgeber

Mooi penthouse in Catanië

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben het appartement van Alberto een week gehuurd. Van hieruit kunnen vele excursies worden gemaakt. De Etna, Taormina, Piazza Armerina, Syracuse en Noto liggen "in de buurt". Er is een prima bakker op 50 meter. Tegenover is een supergoede eetgelegenheid.

De omgeving is wel druk, maar het appartement ligt hoog genoeg om daar niet veel last van te hebben.

Alberto is een aardige, attente gastheer. De communicatie verliep prima.

Très bonne adresse hors centre-ville

  • 4 of 5

L'appartement est très bien, avec tout le confort, propre, très agréable avec une grande baie vitrée et une terrasse (mais l''été il doit faire très chaud malgré la climatisation) , dans un quartier un peu éloigné du centre-ville, très bruyant mais finalement très sympa à vivre. Le propriétaire est charmant. On peut rayonner en voiture à partir de Catane dans une grande partie de la Sicile (conduite sportive!).
