    Catina

    We stayed two nights. We were a little skeptical of the area when we first arrive but we were not used to the city. The host, Daniella, was fantastic. She saw us and came right down. She carried the larger suitcase up the stairs. The b&b is two flights up but we did not have to go in and out too many times. The whole b&b has been updated except for the beautiful original ceiling and other architecture features. Our room had musical instruments and flowers on the ceiling. Beautiful! We were very close to the castle which is a museum and the Duomo. There are also other things to look at which we did not have time for. She gave us a fantastic local restaurant to eat at. Trattoria Giglio Rossa on Via S Anna. The food was fantastic. The first night we had the swordfish with almonds. The second night tuna with sweet and sour onions. For pasta penne with olive oil, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Best bread we had in the three weeks we spent in Italy

    Loved it!

    Location was great and such beautiful hotel! Very clean and nicely decorated. The owner was also super nice and overall we very much enjoyed our stay. The only area for improvement was the variety of food for breakfast- most of the food was just pastries and cake, not enough (or any) cheese and meat.

    Great location & comfortable room

    Owner spoke English, gave us a map with tourist attractions & the times they were open & the cost of admission. Rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable with modern touches. Breakfast was always delicious. Would definitely recommend!

    No lift B&B

    The building is very old and there is no lift to the B&B which is located at 3rd floor. I have a luggage and feel tire to go upstairs when check in and go downstairs when check out.

    Excellent location. You to walk to all the historical places . The property is amazing and some rooms have original frescoes in the late Baroque style. Emmanuela is friendly and gives great advice about places to visit and local genuine trattorias. We felt relaxed and safe with her. Would definitely stay there again.

    We stayed one night at Il Leone Blu and Manuela made us feel very comfortable from start to finish. She gave us local recommendations and even extended breakfast for us the next morning! The B&B is fully renovated but maintains all the original Italian details, and was super clean. Thanks for a great stay!

    Moderno e pulito

    B&B molto curato, pulito e moderno. Camere spaziose, pulite, e curate. Colazione poca cosa, ma ti viene offerto un buono per farla in un bar (ottimo) nella piazza principale di Catania.
