Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Catania

Elegant and comfortable apartment in the center of Catania

The apartment is located in the center of Catania in a mansion just restrurrurato and very quiet. It has a double bed, single bed and a sofa bed in the living room. It has a kitchen, a bathroom and a room with a washing machine. Nearby is a parking lot. From the house you can visit on foot to the center of Catania and take several public buses that connect directly to the airport and the train station

Well described property.

  • 4 of 5

Really good location. Quiet once you are inside the external door. Good bed, nice balcony. Things that would make it better for me would be some comfortable seating (not dining seats). A bigger coffee pot and a good sharp knife would also help. Nettles are growing on the balcony - not sure they are meant to be there, personally I would treat them as weeds and get rid of them. Overall I was very happy with my stay.

Wonderful place, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

Our “hats off” to Ellie from Peppino’s Art & Bed Space. We drove from Taormina to Catania on a Sunday and arrived in a torrential rain & thunderstorm. Although we had a rental car map, we managed to lose our way! Ellie helped us with texts/phone calls – and we arrived to find a clean, spacious apartment with a “Welcome” note from Ellie, a package of candy, and a collection of much better maps!

We stayed in the apartment known as Peppino’s Cinema, their “attic apartment”. It has two lovely balconies. One is off the bedroom and has plants that screen the balcony, a table (with umbrella) and two chairs. The other is off the kitchen area and is a perfect place for later afternoon “tea”, or wine/beer. The bedroom is large and spacious with two nice sized free standing closets. The kitchen has a great rustic table, chairs, and good counter space. We put the gas stove to work because we prefer to cook our own breakfasts and dinners. The refrigerator was small but did us well and we found sufficient pots, pans, utensils, etc. The bathroom had a window with shutters, which we liked, and there were good towels, a bathmat, etc. There were two air conditioner units. One in the kitchen and one in the bedroom. Both were quiet and did a great job. Our weather was humid and hot so we did use the ac but on our last day the breezes picked up and we simply opened all windows – great! This was another plus as there were lots of windows in the bedroom so you could enjoy looking out across the roofs and skyline of the city.

When you reach Peppino’s, there is an outer door that you unlock with your key…As mentioned, we stayed in the “attic” apartment and so were expecting stairs – but you should be aware that there are two sets of marble steps that lead to a short walkway; then to reach this apartment you climb a very narrow short flight. No problem for us except for lugging large suitcases up and then back down when we left.

Peppino’s is located in the heart of historic Catania. Ideally situated, we loved being able to walk to so many grand buildings. We also enjoyed the fish market – a photograph can't capture the shouting, laughing, interacting and smells! What amazed us is that the market pulsates until about 11am and then the city brings in a truck that literally washes the plaza clean! We found excellent produce (fresh be vegetables and fruits) at reasonable prices near the fish market plus vendors selling meats, cheeses, breads, etc. Great place!

Nice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 days in this apartment the end of January. Nice place. Clean and comfortable and Mirella (on staff) was very helpful in meeting all our needs. (She even suffered through my poor Italian - helping me learn - until I gave up and used English for certain things. She was perfectly comfortable in English, too.)

The apartment was in an area where there was no parking readily available but Mirella helped me get our car into the parking lot about a 5 minute walk away. From the apartment, we were able to comfortably walk around a good bit of Catania, observing lots of the preparations for the Feast of Saint Agata. Very nice.

Catania in January

  • 5 of 5

A really cosy and inspiring place to stay, even during the off-season. A real home-away. I will recomend the place to all our friends visiting Sicily.

Catania eine sehr sehenswerte Stadt

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schoene Wohnung und genau wie beschrieben komplett ausgestattet. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir mit einer Flasche Cinzano Asti Spumante, Weihnachtsplaetzchen und zwei CD's ueberrascht.

Ellie die Gastgeberin ist sehr hilfsbereit, war immer fuer uns erreichbar und spricht sehr gut deutsch. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral (tolle Dachterasse, jeden Tag Sonne bei 15-20 Grad)

In einem schoenen gepflegten Haus, aber trotzdem sehr ruhig. Der Bahnhof und Busbahnhof ist In ca. 5 Minuten erreichbar. So kann man ohne Auto viele Ziele ganz entspannt erreichen.

In der naeheren Umgebung gibt es einige empfehlenswerte Restaurants, Bars und Geschaefte.

Wir haben ins in der Wohnung sehr wohlgefuehlt und koennen sie uneingeschraenkt empfehlen.

GRAZIE ELLIE !!!!!!!!!

The apartment was lovely. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. But the best thing about this place is the location. It's right near the Piazza Bellini. Beautiful opera house, loads of bars. Easy to walk to everywhere you'd want to go. Really great!
