A wonderful place in a prime location! Daniel replied very quickly to my inquiry and was very helpful as my friends and I decided on our final itinerary. Furthermore, when our flight (and resulting arrival in Catania) was delayed, he was more than understanding and very helpful. Finally, he even gave us an overview of the city and a map, and showed us where some fantastic places to eat. Overall, Daniele is a great guy and a pleasure to book from. The apartment itself is great -- two full size bedrooms, one with a balcony, a fully stocked kitchen, and decent bathroom. The only issue with the apartment was building-wide plumbing, don't flush too much toilet paper at once :) The location was absolutely perfect also. There is wonderful food surrounding the apartment serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner; as well as a little park to relax in. It is 5-7 minutes away from Catania's nightlife scene, 10 minutes away from the city center, and 10 minutes away from Catania's famous outdoor market. The airport bus drops you off just 5 minutes from the apartment, too, so traveling to and from CAT is a breeze. Overall, I would highly recommend the place as well as renting from Daniele.
The location is good, and there is a big kitchen and dining room with nice view over the Ursino Castle. But, the toilets are horrible with blocked pipes that were never cleaned and blocked sink. We were promised to have our private bethroom, but when we arrived someone just used our toilet before us, and it was clearly seen. When I asked the owner to clear the jams in the toilet pipes noone cared about it, and we had the same problems till the end of our stay.
The flat is very central and it was a good price for sleeping only. However, the rooms and bathroom were in bad condition, lots of things were broken and untidy.
Apartment is really spacious and in a perfect locality - in the centre of Catania, also has a great view to the Castello Ursino.
It wasn;t my first trip with the airbnb, but it was the first experience of this kind.
First of what the traveller should think of, before coming to the appartment is to write to Danielle, asking how to reach the point as the registration desk is different from the appartment adress and from the address on the site.
Another thing is appartment itself. It's big and rather comfortablem BUT:
- there were no airconditioner in our room (as it was promised). Only a broken fan.
- so we have to open the window just to breathe. And it was a very loud restaraunt right under. So the nights weren't calm untill 3 a.m.
- Another thing to be admitted is the bathroom. It has a shared balkony with the kitchen, so be ready that somebody can come from that side...
- Kitchen is another long story. When we came,the refrigetaor was full and the were no division of the shelves for the rooms. As we got to know later girl renting another flat stored her products in our refrigerator. Than the refrigerator was broken for 3 days. And it was very dirty all the time...
- Just 1!!!!! saucepan and 2 pans without handles for the whole appartment
- Little red ants in the kitchen
Of coarse there was a very beautifull view if Ursine castle. Especially at night. And a good international company. But I would advice to stay at the appartment if one is spending there nights only!!! as there are too many nuances which make it not comfortable!
Even if it was really difficult to find the exact location of appartment, place was really nice.
(but the keys are the same for all rooms)
O apartamento, è muito bem localizado, o quarto grande, vista linda para o castello Urzino
tem uma moça que vem todo dia limpar a cozinha, o banheiro e a salao
Os 2 unicos problemas è que so tem um banheiro e voce pode dividir o apartamento com alunos da escola de Italiano do proprietario e eles fazem a festa a te tarde no apartamento
