    Our stay at the B & B gianni e lucia has only had one catch, Sunday breakfast at Mcdonalds below. We understand that having day off Sunday, but perhaps a more welcoming place McD. is close to the B & B. Gianni perfect rest too. Recommended for anyone who wants to visit Catania.

    Great location, English speaking receptionist. They let us do an early check in (9 am!). Only points to improve: breakfast, kinda have the feeling that it wasn't so clean. If you have a problem with stairs-not recommended. Other than that we had a great stay!

    Convenient location is the nicest thing I can say.At night the vendors come out.The proprietor from the onset wasn't sure if he'd be available when we arrived- however he did communicate by email he would leave the key to retrieve at the McDonald's below the residence. He was rushed to check us in- then left not to be seen again -he indicated his assistant would be available in the morning to serve breakfast. The following morning-we told Julia we wished to cancell our third night of stay-the assistant accepted the cancellation. We were appalled by: dirty rooms,the lack of availability of any staff, the sub standard A/C, we discovered fruit jams for breakfast left each day in the fridge with spoons in left open and unwrapped,a voucher was provided for McDonlads because neither Gianni or Julia could be available for breakfast day 2 - but McDonald's were closed and... the list goes on... Mr. DaGianni left a note the eve of our second night telling us it was too late to cancel a third night of stay. Had they been available-even 5 minutes after check in at 9 pm we would provided the cancellation. Mr DaGianni forgets about his guests-there is literally no service and he becomes rude and aggressive when loosing a nights reservation. Ultimately we paid the 3rd night without staying.

    We had a lovely quad room overlooking the Piazza, which was fantastic. The location was perfect and central and the room very comfortable. It was excellent value. Gianni was extremely helpful and I would certainly stay there again when next in Catania.

    I only had one night in Catania and would like to have stayed longer. The B&B Da Gianni e Lucia was excellent, warm welcome and very helpful information on sights and airport bus. Only draw back was a difficulty in getting back in to collect my luggage on leaving. Otherwise very clean with a spacious and bright room. Would stay again. Word on directions, take a slight left out of station rather than straight ahead.

    After an outstanding welcome (our host was luckily able to reserve a parking in front the front door), we had a quick check in and were introduced to a nicely furnished, bright room. The position, with a balcony on the noisy square (piazza stesicoro) was not a problem as the isolating glasses were really working fine. Catania deserves to be visited, and B&B Gianni and Lucia is an excelent option for an accomodation. Thank you.

    We stayed at the B&B Da Gianna e Lucia for one night only.We found it difficult to find the B&B but once we had reached the station, the directions given were good. The owner was very helpful in suggesting where to park,where to go in Catania, where to eat, and how to get to Etna. The room was spacious but simply decorated.The bathroom was quite old but clean.The owner's welcome made up for the simplicity of the place.
