I arrived at the airport and Valeria and Adrian were there to pick me up, they offer the service for 10 euros. The apartment was great very clean, like a cute studio, but with enough space, I didn't feel claustrophobic of anything :). Bathroom is big and nice, good water pressure and temperature. Comfortable bed with TV and good wifi. Valeria game a map and explained all the good spots even recommended restaurants to try the Arancino al Ragu. Delicious!! The best part was that I felt like I left Catania with new friends, her and her boyfriend. They arranged for me a tour in Mount Etna that was AMAZING~!!!!! Overall incredible experience, it was my first time using airbnb. I hope all the next times are as good as this one!
Great location and great room - everything we needed. I'd definitely come back here again next time
It's in a great location, in a lovely building, on one of Catania's main streets.
But, like some others said, not all rooms are the same. We had the infamous room no.1. well, the bathroom could use some cleaning.
but overall the room is nice. small and tidy. all you need for a stay.
The flat is clean and has a tv, air conditioning and a confortable bed. However internet comes and goes, also when we arrived we had to wait ten minuts outside in the street in the dark before somebody came. We were expecting Valeria but instead she send another guy without explaning us who he was. The guy broght us inside the building but we had to wait because first he had the wrong keys. When we arrived the flat had no water and had to wait 1 hour before being able to shower. In the morning a man (maybe the owner) tried to open the door with another key without knoking, when we opened he didn´t apology nor he introduced himself. At 11 another guy knoked asking at what time we would live (we were told we could stay till max 12) because there was another a reservation and told us that living at 11:30 was better for them. To cut the sotry short, the flat is ok, but the organization is bad, waiting time for water was annoying for us and we did not felt that safe.
We don't recommand this place. We booked 5 nights and stayed only 4 nights at this apartment at the end.
The first night, Valeria welcomed us in a place that wasn't looking like the picture at all, and that smelled cigarette very bad. We complained about this and she only moved us to another place the next morning.
Then when we decided to change our plans : cancel one night at Valeria's apartment, to leave catania earlier than planned. From there, things started to get very complicated : it was 3 days before the 24 hours limit put on the air bnb condition, and yet, Valeria who didn't put any other personnal condition about how to cancel a night wouldn't accept our request.
Of course, we already paid for the five nights, and she said that air bnb was taking some of her money if we were cancelling one night. Her other excuse was that nobody could have booked this night since it was only 3 days before. Once again, she didn't put anything on the website about what were her cancelling condition.
We ended up negotiating at 22h30, with one of her friends: their conditions were : "you pay half a night since you cancel the last night in the middle of your stay, and if you don't , then we don't cancel the night and you pay the total."
during this conversation we found out that the amount air bnb was taking from her, was only the 5 euros of the night reservation, which was the comission air bnb is taking in any case when someone book a night on the air bnb website... So, it never was her money, it actually was air bnb's. We tried to explain to the guy, that they didn't put any other cancelling condition, and that this money was never valeria's but it didn't change anything.
We had to pay half a night in cash, so he would cancel the last night we booked. We have no trace of anything and they didn't live us any other choice.
Valeria doesn't understand how air bnb is working and was dishonnest about this since she didn't put anything on the website before facing the situation. She didn't even had the honnesty to come in person to deal with us, and this way we really think she's not a realiable person.
what happened was really unexpected and it ruinned our last days of vacation in catania.
I don't recommend this guest. Judith together a friend of her booked for 5 nights. I had more free apartments and I gave them the bigger and they liked it. In a second moment, when I went away from the house, at 11PM, she wrote me an email and told me that there was some cigarette smell. The next day I gave them at 10 AM another clean apartment. However during her stay she wanted to cancel the last night sending me 2 days early, during night, an email telling me that they wanted to stay only 4 nights of the 5 booked on the website. So the next day they weren't at home all day so at 22PM I've sent my partner to talk with them and try to understand what happened and if there was some problems during their stay.
Everything was perfect with the apartment but, apparently without a good reason or notice, decided to cancel the last night, but as my cancellation policies I refund the half sum of the remaining nights cancelled during the stay. Once she blocked the apartment one month before, therefor nobody else could book my apartment, I propose her to do the half payment of the last cancelled night, also to pay the cleaning service of two apartments. I think it's quite honest.

This apartment was fine for our one night stay. It was really just one big room with a comfortable big bed, small table, and small kitchen with cooking facilities and mini fridge. It also has aircon. Good location, close to the duomo and piazza teatro massimo, which is full at night and a fun place to grab a drink. Overall, a good experience. Would recommend.
