Incredibly kind staff. We arrived late due to a delayed flight and somebody stayed at the reception for us until then. The host was also generous in giving us good advice for safe parking, activities and get arounds. The bed and breakfast is ideally located, at 2 min walking to catania's heart. The building is very old and charming. Our room was decorated simply but functionally. Everything was clean and the bed very comfortable.

centrally located basic rooms
best location for someone who wants to stay close to the airport and still be at the center of the town with very near by night life location ( 3 minutes walk). The owner is very nice and the process of check-in was effective and short. The building itself is old and the entrance is a slight challenge. the biggest concern is with the noise coming from the cars in the street even in the late hours.

Great friendly hotel with Amzing Sri Lankan Staff
Great friendly hotel, very central with lovely bedrooms and a funky lift. Only lost a few points from me as the bed in room 5 was Very uncomfortable and sagged when anyone laid on it - replace the bed guys! Owner suggested a room change after the first night and the second room was great. Beautiful building with great ceilings in each room. Special mention to the two Amazing Sri Lankan Staff who work in the hotel - nice to meet you gents, and thanks for your hospitality. Would recommend.

Great Location!
Hard to find as is everything in Catania. No or limited signs and crazy drivers. The place exceeded our expectations. Amazing location, beautiful frescoed ceiling and quite a bargain.

Charming and Comfortable
We very much enjoyed our stay at Antica Dimora. We were first greeted by Pinella, who was very kind and friendly. She made us feel at home. Pinella answered all of our questions about things to see and to do in Catania. Antica Dimora is very centrally located and within walking distance of everything. Pinella also recommended the restaurant Pitti for dinner. If you’re a meat lover, then this fantastic restaurant is for you. Our room was a triple room which was up the stairs from the dining area. One area (which in itself was its own bedroom) had a queen bed. The other area had 2 twin beds. The linens were new, fresh and clean. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The wifi was fast. The bathroom was not en-suite but was just outside the room door. As this was the only room up the stairs, this bathroom was just for our room. Breakfast was a wonderful spread of breads, cakes, meats, cheeses and a lot more. Pinella also arranged a taxi for our departure to the airport. Yes, I would return.
