CHECK AVAILABILITY

The idea behind the bed and breakfast Solsicily is to offer a 3-star service at an affordable price. The building, a palazzo constructed during the second half of the 19th century, and the interior have been remodeled, though still maintain the original style of the period in which it was first built.

Solsicily is situated within the center of Catania. This location is ideal for those who want to enjoy seaside holidays without missing out on city life. You can enjoy the exhilarating nightlife of this passionate and multicultural city with its young population. You can also sample the typical dishes and traditional sweets of ancient Sicily in a variety of pubs and restaurants.

This B&B is well connected to the public transport system. Guests are also provided free parking during their stay (limited availability).

Our staff will always be pleased to be at your service, be it recommending a day trip outside the city, choosing the most important cultural events to witness, or simply suggesting convenient ways of traveling around. We offer you all our hospitality, with amenities such as free WiFi Internet access, and make the best effort to render your stay in Catania an affordable and memorable experience.

The B&B îs located in a very comfortable area, practically close to everything needed, be it transportation, shopping or the historic center. The owners are very welcoming, always happy to lend a hand or advise regarding the itinerary. Room was refreshed every day without special requires. Atmosphere is overall familial with the kitchen as common ground for interaction.

very nice stay, room was excellent. Breakfast was great if you like sweet (like most Italians do), savory choices were very limited. Also, breakfast is only until 9:30. The B&B is very near (5 mins) to main street (Via Etnea) and squares, shops, markets, bars, restaurants etc. BUT you first have to walk past a collection of shady characters, working girls (and their clients) and squats. They didn't hassle us at all, but I (female) would not want to walk there at night by myself. Also, the B&B is on the 3rd floor, no elevator.

I stood only one night. The surroundings are relly terrible. The house is nice and rooms are spacious. I left early in the morning and so I didn't get any breakfast.

Number of stairs a real challenge, and locked doors and absence of lighting when entering lobby made access somewhat difficult. The room was OK but the noise from the toilet pump very intrusive. Breakfast was a free for all with cereal packets, bread, etc dumped on the table whilst proprieters sat and used computers. More of a back packer experience than what we had expected for the money. We did not find the area at all threatening but it was nearer bus station than it was to the main sights.

The owners of Solsicily were very helpful during our stay in Catania and our room was fine. It's true that the street where the B&B is located is in a bit of a strange area: it's in the center of the city but this street and a few others nearby are not in good condition. But don't worry, the main streets you need to walk along are fine, just avoid the dark alleys.

Very spacious bedrooms. No lift to go up to the 3rd floor, so you have to carry your suitcases all the way up, but it's feasible.

Christian and his lovely family treated us very well and were very helpful. Area is a bit dodgy and we weren't brave enough to go out at night time, but our room was big, airy and clean.
