Interaction with Guests
Guests during the living room will be able to address me every time they will think, since my habitation is on the same Landing.
my quarter is full of pub, restaurants, theatres, in the evening beautiful coming back is at home take from the night liveliness.
walks on foot are certainly recommended for admiring everything how much offers the old city centre. However at few meters there are the stops of the public means. Guests who arrive to airport can reach the accomodation either on the bus line 457 or the taxi with fixed rate.
turn the conditioners off when one goes out or the windows are opened, turn off the taps to fine water use, turn the lights which one actually need on.
It is important for the ecosystem to contribute to the energy saving.
We had a really incredible experience staying in this apartment. The location is perfect for taking day trips all over Sicily, as well as visiting the Cantania area. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and welcomed. A tour of the apartment was given to us and local points of interest and stores were shown to us. They have a basket filled with maps and tour options which made our stay enjoyable and fun. The apartment is just as attractive as the pictures. It felt like home to us for the time of our stay. The apartment was very clean and has a complete kitchen which we like to have when traveling. Since Rosa and her husband live in the building, it was easy to get the questions answered that came up along the way. We would definitely recommend staying with Rosa and her husband and if we find ourselves in Sicily again, this is the place we would stay. Thank you again Rosa.
After arriving in Catania, we buzzed Rosa at the big door, and her husband let us in. She explained the apartment to us though we don't know much Italian an she doesn't know much English.
Rosa's apartment was as described. There was plenty of room for my wife, mother, sister and I. The only downside was that the bathroom had to be reached through the room with the twin beds.
It was very safe feeling inside the large the courtyard building and the windows let in a lot of light when the shutters are open.
There's a small grocery right by the apartment, as well as a great gourmet burger restaurant. Most of the other main Catania sights are in walking distance too.
Wifi reception isn't very strong on phones, but it works fine on computers. The reception is a lot better from the patio outside.
The host lives in the next apartment over, so if any questions/issues arise, she would be able to respond promptly.
L'appartamento si trova in una posizione molto comoda per visitare la citta'. In pochi minuti a piedi si raggiungono i posti di maggiore interesse e nelle vicinanze si trovano ristoranti, piccoli alimentari, bar, una farmacia..
E' affacciato su un cortile interno con un terrazzino molto bello. E' pulito, i letti sono comodi, la cucina e' fornita con il necessario per cucinare tranquillamente. Forse l'unico piccolo difetto e' la connessione wifi abbastanza debole.
Rosa e' molto gentile e disponibile ad aiutare in caso di necessita', la comunicazione con lei e' stata molto buona. Consigliato!
Our stay at La Terrazza was wonderful. We were supposed to arrive at 5pm from Malta but arrived extremely late because of a severe storm (1am) and Rosa's father was still able to let us into the apartment. The apartment is on a second floor walk up and was very clean and comfortable. It was in the middle of a bustling, lively part of Catania with everything we needed right around the corner. Even though it was in a lively area there were no problems with noise. We had very little communication with Rosa because we had everything we needed. When we did communicate, regarding our arrival time, communication was great even though I sadly cannot speak Italian. Thank you Rosa for a wonderful stay!!
The apartment was very well located in a nice old building. Despite this there were some items to critisize:
1. the apartment doesn't look as on the photo. Its much more tight therefore it shouldn't be used for 5 people
2. its quite noisy in the morning. Despite located in the court motorbikes and cars are leaving quite early
3. The equipment of the kitchen is quite sparely fortunately there is no need to cook often in Italy
4. Price is quite high
5. Communication was quite challenging due to language skills (Italian was the only language which is spoken)
I'm sorry if some little mishap bothered you , but when you travel all that matters is being in a warm and elegant with good people,
about the kitchen facilities are provided for six people may not have tried well in wall units. However, it was a pleasure to meet you.
Me and my kids had a good stay in Catania.
The terrace is very nice and well fitted for breakfast, drinks and dinners. The location, at a court yard, is quiet, even as it is situated near the city center. The house and apartment is very atmospheric.
Groceries, restaurants and bars are within 5 minute walk, bus/train in 10 minutes. Very well located.
