Good Economical Choice

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a good place to stay for a week. Basic rental with combined kitchen/living area, bedroom separated by curtain, and small bathroom with small shower. Laura was very pleasant to deal with and helped with visitor information. True that there are no cars on the street/alley because it is too narrow for cars. There are lots building sounds that you will hear from the people living around and above you however. Easy walking to various locations and grocery store and panificio close by.

Very quiet but central to everything.

  • 4 of 5

This is a very quiet apartment, but centrally located with good access to most attractions in Catania and even a supermarket 100 metres away. It remained quiet through Carnevale and the yearly celebrations for Saint Agatha. The apartment has all that you need and even reverse cycle air con, which was useful in the cold February that I was there. The owner was away when I arrived but I was meet by Luca who was extremely helpful and both him and owner speak very good English and are happy to help with directions etc. It was a very good experience.

Nice holiday-flat in good location

  • 4 of 5

We were in Catania to find a student-flat for the Semester 14/15. This vacation was close to the center, to the university and everything important like baker, supermarket etc. The houseowner was helpfull with advices for visiting Catania and the prize for what we got. All in all this vacation has everthing you need and is a good place to stay for a week or two.

Im Herzen vom antiken Catania

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einige sehr schöne Tage in dieser kleinen zentralen Wohnung im Herzen von Catania verbracht. Die Wohnung ist einfach aber sehr charmant. Es ist alles da, was man braucht zum Kochen und sich wohl fühlen. Absolut ruhig gelegen in einer kleinen Gasse ohne Straßenverkehr. Man kriegt hier echtes sizilianisches Leben mit :-)

Einziges Manko: Es gibt keine Tür zwischen Toilette und Schlafzimmer. Das fanden wir etwas gewöhnungsbedürfig. Die Wohnung hat auch außer der Eingangstür mit Glasscheibe keine weiteren Fenster.

Die Lage der Wohnung ist sensationell. Um die Ecke ist ein Lebensmittelgeschäft, eine Bäckerei und auch alles andere was man zum Leben braucht. Wir sind immer zu Fuß unterwegs gewesen, dann kann man abends auch ein Glas Wein trinken. Man findet aber auch ohne weiteres in der Nähe leicht einen Parkplatz. Catania ist wunderbar für Veganer, da es mehrere köstliche Restaurants und Cafes gibt, die sich auf Veganer eingestellt haben oder sogar rein vegan sind.

Fazit: Die Wohnung ist super für ein Pärchen, das einen Stadtrip nach Catania machen will. Der Preis ist verlockend günstig. Die Vermieterin Laura ist überaus liebenswürdig und charmant. Sie ist immer erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Grazie mille!
