One of the best Bed and Breakfast I never Seen... Very Clean, friendly and comfortable place in Sicily. Close to the center and surrounded by the topical architectural building and by fish market. Design first!

Nice little room which is well maintained. Good sized bathroom coming with it. Very clean as well. We had no hot water one day, but the host took immediate action and fixed the issue in minutes. The host is very friendly.

We loved to stay in BAD as the B&B is directly located in the centre of Catania. Allesandro is a very helpful and caring host! He has got special tips concerning great restaurants. Looking forward to come back!

This charming B&B was perfection. The host was extremely flexible with our changing travel plans and helped get us settled as soon as we arrived (English speaking). The artwork, details in the rooms (fun lamps and furniture), and balcony overlooking the open market made the...More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bad, the proprietor Alessandro was charming and helpful. The accommodation was clean,fun and quirky though a little tired and could do with a freshen up. There were a few minor negative points- hence the 4 star rating-like the shower...More

About
Description
Conceived like a small Boutique hotel, BAD is the first Design Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Catania. Much more than a simple b&b, it is a unique mix of hospitality and creativity, ideal for both those More travelling for pleasure and for business. It unites the fascinating Catanese baroque architecture with contemporary art and design. At BAD one breathes the creativity of Giulia and Alessandro, the two owners and curators. Professionals in the World of advertising and graphic design, they have expertly created within the ample and comfortable rooms different ambiences, exhibiting psychedelic wallpapers, amazing 19th Century Sicilian artifacts, vintage furniture and works of young aspiring artists. Every room of the b&b in fact has a different mood, colour and feeling, with two or three beds, private bathroom and naturally all the comforts you would expect. BAD is in the beating heart of Catania: in a XIX century building, next to the historical fish market "la Pescheria" and within a stone's throw of the Cathedral and main monuments of the city. Furthermore BAD is only a few minutes away from the airport, the train station and the port, and just 100 meters from a bus station which connects to other main Sicilian resorts. Because BAD is more than a sleeping experience. Less

Hi, an italian breakfast (cappuccino and croissant) is served in a Pastry Shop in the main square, in front of the cathedral. A continental breakfast (with egg, bacon...) is served in a Bakery shop in front of our building.
