La Casina ('small home') is a studio apartment newly refurbished in the pulsating heart of ancient Catania, between Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square), the historical fish market 'à piscarìa' and the medieval Castello Ursino (XIII cent.) Completely indipendent, on the ground level of a quiet side-street, it is an interesting and discreet alternative to the usual Bed&Breakfast. From its central location, it is easy to reach the Alcalà bus station (3 min. walk to Piazza Borsellino), where continuous connections can bring you to the Airport, Train Station, and all other touristic destination in Sicily.

The apartment of approximately 30 sq/mt has a doublebed and a sofa-bed, and is thus ideal for 2-3 persons, including children, who are welcome free of charge untill 3 years of age. We like to think of diversity as a value to be preserved, that's why La Casina, formerly a shoe-maker workshop, has been renovated in respect of its past history and style, and refurbished with furniture that we personally restored by hand. That's why we like to welcome guests every time different, of any nation, religion or belief. That's why we are gay-friendly. That's why our fares are low-cost.More

Nice one-room apartment with kitchen and shower. Not quiet due to street, but right in the centre of Catania, next to the lively fish market.

Interaction with guests
We always like to receive our guests personally, and only in very few cases we might use the help of co-hosts for check-in and welcome. During the check-in and registration we like to chat with guests about their plans and to share with them all the tips & tricks regarding the neighbourhood, the historic center, and their points of interest. After this 'welcome time' we like to leave our guest the maximum freedom of movement and total privacy. Nevertheless, we live just a few meters down the same street, so in case of need we are normally quite close to help and support, and even if we should be out or away, we always remain available for support over the email, mobile phone and what's app.
