Exceptional 9.4 From 58 reviews

Very good 8.0
We stayed two nights. We were a little skeptical of the area when we first arrive but we were not used to the city. The host, Daniella, was fantastic. She saw us and came right down. She carried the larger suitcase up the stairs. The b&b is two flights up but we did not have to go in and out too many times. The whole b&b has been updated except for the beautiful original ceiling and other architecture features. Our room had musical instruments and flowers on the ceiling. Beautiful! We were very close to the castle which is a museum and the Duomo. There are also other things to look at which we did not have time for. She gave us a fantastic local restaurant to eat at. Trattoria Giglio Rossa on Via S Anna. The food was fantastic. The first night we had the swordfish with almonds. The second night tuna with sweet and sour onions. For pasta penne with olive oil, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Best bread we had in the three weeks we spent in Italy

Loved it!
Location was great and such beautiful hotel! Very clean and nicely decorated. The owner was also super nice and overall we very much enjoyed our stay. The only area for improvement was the variety of food for breakfast- most of the food was just pastries and cake, not enough (or any) cheese and meat.

Great location & comfortable room
Owner spoke English, gave us a map with tourist attractions & the times they were open & the cost of admission. Rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable with modern touches. Breakfast was always delicious. Would definitely recommend!

No lift B&B
The building is very old and there is no lift to the B&B which is located at 3rd floor. I have a luggage and feel tire to go upstairs when check in and go downstairs when check out.

Perfect stay in Catania
Manuela's property is both beautiful and ideally located. The building interior, recently restored, is stunning. The location is near to the main squares, and easily within walking distance of several major sights and nice restaurants. As a host, Manuela gave us a great greeting and offered her time and effort for helping us with some logistics. She went above and beyond, without question. Awesome stay. Fantastic service. I would recommend staying here. Manuela, thank you for a lovely time in Catania.

Manuela was so helpful. It was a lovely stay. the ceiling in this room (no.1) is absolutely amazing. Close to everything. It is difficult to find first time though. Taxi driver was going round in circles. look for door no. 38 and to be sure - look up. There is a sign but it is on the second floor.

Poor 2.0
Catania is a very strange city. No real hotels. After having been at Taormina, this was such a let down. It was in a part of questionable area, you have to go up six flights of stairs, no real help, supposed to have breakfast, nothing prepared. It truly was a joke, however, Catania is not really a pretty city, and perhaps, a little scary, the restaurants were great. Just don't get a hotel

A great place to stay in Catania!
We all had a great time in the excellent family room at Il Leone Blu. Manuela and Dario could not have been more friendly and helpful. Il Leone Blu is very well located, adjacent to the piazza where you find the historical Castello Ursino. Lots of friendly bars and restaurants close by. Parking was very easy.
