A large, bright and comfortable room in our flat in Catania, located just 10 minutes from the center.
The apartment is on the sixth floor, equipped with air conditioning and heating in all rooms, gas, internet wi-fi, TV, balcony and possibility to use a washing machine and kitchen.
The area is well served by public transport, but it is easy to reach the old town with a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. For guests arriving by car is it possible to park easily in the street for free, or if you prefer a garage to pay, there is one right in the same building.
Supermarket, tobacco, newspaper and other useful services are just around the corner.
The room is silent and quite, and from the balcony you can see also a (small!) piece of blue sicilian sea, just above the skyline of Catania.
The room is equipped with a big double bed, but if you need one more bed for your children or friends we have one single bed to add...the room is large enough, don't worry!
The bathroom is just in front of your room.

Ospiti cordialissimi e molto molto accoglienti. Una camera molto ampia, luminosa in un quartiere molto tranquillo e ben servito, a due passi dalle migliori pasticcerie di Catania e dal centro della città. Una soluzione ottimale per visitare Catania!!!
I can highly recommend Virginias apartment in Catania. Everything was exactly as described: The room is spacious and clean, WiFi and AC are working and we were allowed to use the kitchen. No problems whatsoever.
And most importantly: Virginia is a very likable person and a great host. She explained everything to us, provided a city map + audio guide and answered all our questions.
Virginia is very nice people.We are delay by filght cause get to the flat so late at midnight, but Virginia is very thoughtful waiting us and help us solve every problem.The room has air condition was very useful when it's very hot and the view is very nice ! Thanks Virginia !
A short but good stay at Virginia's home. She gave us very precise details how to reach the address so it was easy for us to come from the airport.
The room is large and comfortable and she gave us good advices (restaurants, bars...)
Virginia is a helpful person.The room is large and bright. At first view, the room looks clean. But under the bed and walls are very dirty. I cleaned under the bed. Because, dirt under the bed was uncomfortable. Her apartmant is not safe and she generally come back to home very late (about 1 or 2 am). So I have to lock the door. But then we asked her you will come home or not. and then we locked the door. Kitchen, bathroom and balcony of the house is dirty. There was a lot of garbage in kitchen. We can not know where we put our garbage.Sorry,I definitely do not recommend:(((
We can't thank Virginia enough for being such a great host and so patient. Our flight was delayed over 4 hours and we didn't get in until well after midnight and Virginia was so sweet to stay up for us and let us in. It was a short stay, but we know we would love to talk with her more on a future trip. The room was very clean and just what we needed.
People like Virginia make it possible foe any one to travel, alone if they choose, at any age, anywhere! Virginia was exceptional, and helped me organize a tour and connect with buses. She is very kind, communicated easily. Catania makes a great base for exploring a lot of attractions on Eastern Sicily, all connected by bus. The room is large, comfy bed, close to supermarket, has everything you need.
I fully recommend Catania, and seeing this part of Sicily.
I would like to say thanks to Virginia for a great stay, and recommend her to other travellers.
