Be careful with positive ratings: - No loving touches like it seems looking at the pictures - The room doesn't look like on the pictures! - Close to the centre but in a run down building in a not so nice location - "Italian" breakfast if you know what that means...no fruits, no fresh bread, Mulino Bianco biscuits & packed...

We thought we had added a night the week before arriving, but they had no record of it. They quickly found us accommodations a block away, and on the next day got us settled in. Nice, clean place, with an attentive staff. Excellent location, adjacent to the main market and Eliphante Piazza

I was in Catania for one night and booked this hotel. Location was perfect, hotel inside an old palazzo. Nice bedroom with amazing bed. Breakfast is served in the palazzo's living room with its high ceilings and big windows. Would recommend it.

Great hotel with a great price!! I strongly recommend it. It is on the 1st floor with no elevator, but rooms are perfect and so is location. Very nice staff and good breakfast. To park inside you have to pay 5 euros. If I went back to Catania, I would repeat this hotel

We really enjoyed our stay at Acqua dell'Arte. The room was beautiful and the location was perfect - just 3 minutes walk from the main square. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was nice. The only drawback was that the room was not completely sound proof, so at night we could hear everything that happened in the corridor, and...

Great location, friendly, clean, comfortable and great value. Plus they offer parking if you need it. I can't recommend it more highly. It's down the street from the fish market and a ten minute drive from the airport.

Great location only minutes from the La Pescheria and Piazza del Duomo. Additionally only minutes away from Piazza Borsellino where buses go to Syracuse or the lido (beach) area of Catania. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Accommodation spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very good air conditioning. Whilst we had no Italian we had no problems. We paid €65 per night for...

This B&B is located near main tourist places of interest and Restaurants. Our suite was very quiet and had a large comfortable bed with a huge ensuite including spa bath (wonderful after a long flight). The hostess was lovely and gave us a map and highlighted all of the main places of interest. She also recommended restaurants, which were very...

We stayed two nights at the Acqua dell'arte in Catania. It fully met our expectations. − ARRIVAL − We flew into Catania and took a taxi from the airport. It took no longer than 10 minutes. The taxi had no a/c (inspite of the temperature being 41°C!), and the driver requested € 30, even though it should have been 8-10...
