With free Wi-Fi in all areas, San Gaetano offers spacious air-conditioned rooms in the historical centre of Catania.
Score from 70 reviews Wonderful
The location is brilliant. Despite what the guides say, Catania is well worth visiting but for the people and ease of access rather than the buildings (which are OK). The social ritual of "passiagata" starts on Via Etnea.
No one there when we arrived. You have to go to the "hotel" being run by the same people on the floor below, to find someone.
Shabby Staff don't know much Fairly noisy
Location (in the center)
The room was small, with old furniture. The view from the windows was in interior of the building without fresh air, mosquitoes. The hotel was in a flat from the building. Elevator was small.
Great views from the balconies
Good location and nice room
Toilette without bidet, not acceptable for an Italian b&b
Nice spacious room with the balcony, excellent location.
The cleaner was waking me up in the afternoons. And actually I booked BnB Alba, but was staying in the Hotel Sofia (they both are actually in the same building, but it was slightly different from what it said online). There were no hangers in the wardrobe. And no additional blanket - nights were pretty cold.
The location is great; the room was freshly renovated and very clean.
There is horrible noise from the street even at night.
I got a great deal for my money at this place, tv was great, there was a lot of space, and the bed was really comfortable. Plus it was so sweet of the staff to bring breakfast right in to your room!
The wifi was a little on and off. But, some places don't have wifi so I was just glad I could use it a little.
It was one of the best places I ve ever stayed, I really liked everything. The room was well furnished, perfect wifi connection , location and view from the balcony are fantastic. It is much more than a simple bnb , the level is much higher, 100 %recommended.
Location is fantastic - right in the middle of everything on the main rd. Staff friendly and helpful.
They need to get some maps if catania for tourists, but otherwise great.
no breakfast included (even if you can find some coffee or cakes). the hot water finishes too soon, because the boiler is a tiny 30 lt thing. there is parquet even in bathroom , with some insects coming out from it. for the rooms to the part of etnea street, they are very noisy until late night, because of buses and trafic.
service was excellent and very friendly and b&b clean and tidy. very central and easy to find
the bed unfortunatly a bit to creeky
Excellent...just the right location
Very well situated. Staff nice and very helpfull. Big rooms
Too noisy. No car park
Stefania was wonderful and so helpful. The balcony overlooked the main street. A market just around the corner and the beat and least expensive restaurants were right there
The lift was tiny but fun
Great location, in the center of Catania.
Very good apartment in the city centre, a very friendly lady who runs the hotel, clean room, good bathroom Balcony faces the main street Via Etna About one hour to get to Mt. Etna by car All sights are in walking distance There is an elevator You may order breakfast for 2,5 per person if you wish (sweet pastry, marmelade, tee/coffee/milk)
It is very noisy all day round - if you close the balcony - it doesn't help But it didn't bother us much, as we stayed for two nights only
