We only stayed there one night, but loved both the B&B and the town of Acireale. Al 22 B&B is a beautiful little B&B with a fantastic roof top terrace (where breakfast is served when it is warm and sunny), nicely decorated and comfortable rooms, and very friendly and helpful owners. We were greeted warmly and given some very helpful tips on places to visit in the vicinity (like Castel Mola). Moreover we just loved Acireale, not touristy at all, authentically Italian, full of beautiful churches and buildings (although some of them are quite desolate, but maybe that adds to the charm).
The location of both the B&B within the town and the town within the area is great: about 30min to famous Taormina, and equally about 30min to the access road to Mt. Etna. When traveling by car, just make sure you have good directions to the B&B, as the oneway system in central Acireale is really tricky! Despite knowing more or less where the B&B was located it took us 30min of circling just to be able to find the right one ways leading there. The effort was well worth it!
We can highly recommend both the town and the B&B, and if ever coming back to Sicily we will definitely stay there again.
Thanks for a brief but great stay!
