This is a hotel room, not an accommodation in a private house. For me this is off of the AirBNB philosophy but, anyways, it would have been fine if only the communication had been clearer. The room is luxury: very clean, tidy, quality bed+towels, it is located in the center of Catania and in a very safe area. There was an issue (twice) with the air-co, but it was solved in few hours by the staff of the hotel, so good job! The communication with the host and between the host and the staff of the hotel should have been better. For instance, although the receptionist at the hall confirmed me that breakfast was included in the reservation, it finally turned out it was not (in the advertisement breakfast is "on request" but it is not mentioned whether this implies an extra cost). This adds an additional 7€/day. Breakfast was at buffet, tasty and generous, but I'd have appreciated knowing the cost at the time of the reservation. Also, as this is an hotel, a compulsory tax applies ("tassa di soggiorno" of 1.5€/day) not mentioned anywhere. When I complained for these additional costs, the staff recognised the lack of transparency. We finally came to an agreement in paying only half of the costs. I didn't want to make a fuzz out of it and, after all, it was fine, but this inconvenience left me disappointed for half a day. In summary, this would have been a 5 star review but I don't feel comfortable in giving a high rate due to lack of communication about: 1) the cost of breakfast 2) the "tassa di soggiorno" 3) the fact this is a hotel room.
I had a great time in Catania, Fulvia's place is really lovely and very close to everything. I was travelling by myself and could reach everything I wanted (proximity to Via Etnea). Fulvia made me feel welcome and even picked me up from the bus stop - in the morning there is a huge food market right in front of the flat! Amazing!
Fulvia is just the BEST! I had a great time with her right from the start. she came to pick me up at the bus stop, and had a wonderful 24 hours in Catania. The bedroom is spacious , cute and clean, plenty of room to put your clothes, the balcony on the roof is just awesome.. It was just perfect for a single woman traveling. :-)
Fulvia was a wonderful host. I stayed two nights in her apartment and loved it. Her apartment is in the center of Catania, next to the food market. If you are looking for an authentic Sicilian travel experience i can warmly recommend this location. Do shop some pane, tomatoes, fruits and enjoy the food market atmosphere from the balcony with a glas of Vino. Fulvia was very friendly, sympathetic and helpful.
