Hotel management was very helpful and accommodating.Carla provided us with lots of information about eating out,shopping and places to visit Getting there was a little difficult if you arrive by boat as we did from Napoli.I requested directions via your website when booking however did not receive a reply as to how to find hotel from the port.
the hotel staff are very kind and helpful! They offered every help they can with my stay there, including picking me up from the airport (you will have to pay but still it's less than the taxi fare), giving me advice/info on my trip plans, making phone calls booking cars for me. Plus, the internet there is free of charge!! I liked my room which is decorated in tranditional sicilian style, and I have the bathroom basically to my own, free apples in the kitchen. In a word I really love it and would definitely stay there next time I visit! if there is anything then I would say the breakfast could be improved :) what we have in the breakfast selection are only bread and cereal and jams.
The staff are fantastic, they made us very welcome and the breakfast arrangements makes it easy to swap info with other guests.
I arrived in the evening and left the next morning, and I'm still very sorry that I couldn't stay any longer. Not only Catania is an amazing city but also this B&B is on a perfect location in the centre! The rooms are clean, in a theme, made with taste, I felt immediately at home! The staff is very very kind, helpfull, they are just wonderful people! I would really recommend this B&B to any traveller, excellent time is guaranteed! Oh and a suggestion, don't forget to check out their site: www.cataniacitycenter.com, they also organize excursions to the Ethna!!
The staff, their suggestions, and the location. I didn't have anything I didn't like.
The exellent English speaking staff. Wirless Internet connection. Location close to the centrum and architecture places of interest. Noise in the street.
Internet for free. Staff is very friendly, flexible and helpful.
The personell are very friendly, extremely helpful. From the day of my booking they went out of their way to make me feel very welcome.
hotel staff the place of the hotel itself - difficult to find
I liked the helpful friendly host ad the spacious, clean bedroom and bathroom. There was free wifi connection if you have your own computer and cheap rates for the use of the hotel computer.
the rooms are big and comfertable. beutifull dezigen. the hospetality of Jan Lica- great! no
The management were very friendly and helpful; available to provide information on transport, trips etc. Do take up the offer of using the roof terrace as it is a great little suntrap and has some fantastic views. (Terrace itself is a basic area on the roof). Location is excellent. The style of the b&b is unusual and felt like a bizarre hostel. Rooms are functional. If you are seeking a more traditional b&/b or hotel style environment - this would not be the place for you. The building was originally once very ornate and decadent; now it is a bit shabby. I travelled alone and the timed light system was scary the first night as it doesn't give you enough time to get from one part of the hall to the next. That was frustrating. a couple of nights was ok. More than that (especially if you use Catania as a base for your travels around Sicily) and you might want to upgrade or skip to Taormina where there is a wider range of accommodation (albeit more costly) but it is still as easy to travel aroud from the same base.
Staff spoke excellent English, recommended great places to visit and eat and made us feel very welcome. Good central location.
The room and the building were very authentical, like typical Italian.The room and bathroom are big, clean and pretty. The staff is very helpfull. The location is the best. In the center and quite.
It was right in the middle of the shopping area, with the markets on the door step. Places to eat were really close by. Lots and lots of stairs and no lift. Small bedroom and bathroom.
the owner and staff where excellent they looked after us very well and helped us with everything we needed.
location, air conditioning lack of power plugs around the desk or the bed, a little noise from the street, chemical toilet, flat pillows, noisy entrance door.
