Great check-in experience93% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Our cozy little flat is located in the very core of Catania, in a very authentic part of town. A part of the terrace is a winter garden closed by glass walls and furnished as a living-room and dining room. That's perfectly comfortable also when it's cold - if it's ever cold in Catania!

Luka and Gio’s place is small and lovely and perfect for couples. The apartment is in the city centre, yet very quiet, which is not easy to find in Catania. It has everything one needs and the terrace is beautiful. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars around, and it is a v…

I am especially grateful to Eugenia for reading - and following! - the many tips we have so carefully listed on the Airbnb guide section: finally someone gives us feedback about that part ;)

The flat is very cosy and there's everything you need for a perfect stay in Catania. A well organized kitchen, a nice bedroom and a terrace. Gio and Luca are very well organized and helped us to arrive smoothly as well as to explore the city and the region at its best. The area i…

Thank you, we are specially glad to hear that our endeavours to make the flat as user-friendlier as possible have been successful! A special thank also for your description of the area where the flat is: we believe that it is one of the strongest points of our flat, because it is just a few blocks off the main street and the bars and pubs areas, but far enough for being rid of usual tourist traps that unfortunately have been popping up in Catania as well - and most of all silent at night, which is not always the case downtown Catania.

We stayed at Gio's place for a week which was an enjoyable experience. Luca is a well-organised host: he provided us with all the relevant information. The neighbourhood is not so tourists which offers some hidden gems: a kiosk with freshly squeezed juice, cafés with grilled meat…

Thank you for your feedback! Unfortunately there is no space in our bathroom or elsewhere in our flat for a bigger boiler, but the one we have is a 50 litres one: unless you shower very very long, it generally fits for two showers and is very fast in heating more water after the first one, in no more than 15 minutes after the first shower it gets to full capacity again.

Great apartment in a not so great neighborhood and be aware of the sixty-step walk-up.

I am glad that you have liked my apartment, which is "Located on top of a building dating back to 1700", as stated in the English version of the description of the flat. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the neighbourhood, instead: it is one of the oldest and more authentic ones in the historic district of Catania, with families still sitting in front of building doors, kids playing in the street, lots of university students around during the day, your local bars and cafes and the bread shop making bread twice a day. It is a perfect location if you are curious about knowing how locals live, while still staying next to the main street and to the areas where a stranger can stay without having any sort of contact with real life in the place he or she is visiting.
