Great location. We had one of the suites and it was spacious and clean. The stairs could be a problem for some people. The owner organised a trip to Mount Etna for us with a small group of people. You do need warm clothing for this trip.

Excellent owner, nice room clean and beautifully set up, good location within reach of historic center, restaurants and shops. The only thing I cannot write about is breakfast because we had a very early morning flight to catch.

I really appreciate this appartment made in an old style. Huge bathroom. From the balcony, one can admire the activity (specially in the afternoon) of "via Teatro Massimo" - in the evening it gets loud though, can't open the window. Parking available in the courtyard.

Very large renovated rooms with anti-chamber, high ceiling in traditional building from the XIXth century. At the entrance of the pedestrian zone (but you can park your car in the building's courtyard). Breakfast is generous and with a good assortment of pastries and fruits. The owner is very preservative and speaks good English. We stayed 2 nights and would come...

Sergio really went out of his way to make my stay enjoyable and seamless. My flight was delayed/cancelled and he stayed up til 1am to receive me, keeping in contact the whole time.

Dear JC I'm glad to know that you have been happy with my structure. I thank you for what you wrote in the review. Really I did not do anything special but just what I would do for any visitor. The hospitality and respect are very important to me. I wish you to spend good holidays.

Great location, nightlife, food and attractions. Also close to local transport. Stayed in one of the highest rooms, literally around 100 stairs to get up, would not recommend to an older person as there is no lift. However very clean rooms, lovely staff who will help you with any enquiries. Bathroom is a little on the small side but other...
