“Perfect place!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Perfect for our weeklong stay. Great location! Just as pictured. Enrica was fabulous and very accommodating to our arrival time, as we got in quite late. Upon arrival there were these delicious marmalade biscuits and bottled water in fridge. Everything we needed was in the apt. including extra shampoo and sun lotion. There was even some fresh basil and coffee! The host came to check on us and that was very nice. The bed was plenty big (my husband is 6'6" or 2 m tall). Plenty of space. We were very nearby the bus station which was convenient. This place was great for the price. Highly recommend!

“Nice location, nicest host, perfect vacation!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 for a stay in April 2013

La Casina is a charming little apartment, furnished and organized so that even though it’s just one room, it’s perfect for one or two persons, who want a place not just to sleep. It’s also very nicely decorated and clean.

But of course the best thing is the perfect location. As nice little street just 3 minutes to the famous fish market, 3 minutes to the bus station and so many things to look at. And as I found out: a venue (LOMAX) with nice concerts at the end of the street.

Enrica is the most sweet, obliging and helpful host with tips for your vacation. Fx she recomended me a guidet trip to Etna, which was fantastic! Should you get any problems, she response very quickly, so you never feel left alone.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 for a stay in July 2013

The unit is really to close to Catania's main town square, which has loads of attractions surrounding it. There is a major fish market, lots of restaurants & plenty of history. The unit is small but clean & well equipped. Enrica & Luca are great hosts & their English is extremely good. They were very helpful in many ways.

“Great place in the heart of Catania”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Me and my girlfriend were traveling with our 2-year old kid and stayed in Catania for one night. I already knew the city a bit, so I was looking for a place in that particular hood. The Casina is only 3 minutes (walking distance) away from the fish market and Piazza Duomo and is surrounded by little grocery stores, cafés, bakeries etc.
Luca and Enrica were very friendly, helpful and uncomplicated. The Casina has a very personal touch, everything was clean and we had everything we needed. We didn't use the kitchen this time, but with the market that close having the possibility to cook is a major benefit. Despite its vicinity to the lively center via Fornai is a quiet side street, so the night was very peaceful.
Keep in mind that this is just one big space, there are no separate rooms except for the toilet/shower. Daylight is also scarce, being at ground-floor of an old house, the only (opaque) windows are those of the main entrance and a backdoor. The artificial light is warm though, and I suppose it's a plus in summer when you'll be happy to have some shade.
We had a great time and would come back any time.

“Perfect location, great service”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed there for a week with 2 kids (4 and 6 yrs old). The casinas was really comfortable for the four of us. The location is very central, everything was in short walking distance. The main square was only 3 mins. We started every morning at the market that was super close.

The owners, Luca and Enrica are really nice and helpful. They picked us up at the airport, provided us with info about what to see and do nearby.

If you want to be in the heart of Catania, experience the real warm-hearted Sicilian hospitality, this is the place to book.

I would highly recommend to couples, too.
