Staying at Brigida's was great, she was helpful and gave us directions to find the bnb. She also recommended a fantastic economical place to eat which was the best, we loved the food. Also the accommodation had a lift which was good for getting our luggage up the stairs.
A really wonderful place to stay in Catania! Very close to all the sights. Clean and very safe. Step outside the front door and you are on one of the main streets. To the right is the Duomo and other sites like the open air market. To the left a wonderful stroll to the park while looking at Mt Etna the whole time. The hosts were very helpful and available to answer questions.
As a woman traveling by myself, safety is a top priority. I felt very safe in the hotel and in the surrounding area. In fact, I liked it so much I'm going to stay here again very soon!
Brigida was very nice and helpful. However, the place is dirty and extremely noisy. In my room I had to endure the whole day and night a poisonous smell of public toilets coming from the en-suite bathroom. Pointing this out to the owner did not help to solve the issue. The bed cover has probably never been washed, judging from its smell.
The building being very old, there is no acoustic isolation, so it is impossible to sleep due to all the traffic noise from the very central street below the windows. Moreover, noises from inside the apartment also penetrate all walls at any time of the day or night: the telephone was still ringing after 10pm, somebody was tingling cups in the kitchen as late as 11pm, people coming back at night would just clash the doors, talk loud, etc.
All in all, a very bad experience that makes me wonder how trustful positive reviews of this place are.
It is very hard to beat this location. The hosts were courteous and helpful. The place is very basic, but it was clean, quiet, and therefore was everything I needed.
accueil passablement gentil; chambre un peu froide (en février), très bruyante le samedi-soir; sanitaire aussi bruyant (sanibroyeur); pas d'isolation acoustique entre les chambres...
Brigida is a wonderfully considerate host - and San Demetrio Rooms was clean, spacious and comfortable. I had a great time staying here, and will definitely consider this again the next time I'm in Catania!
Nice people and perfect district!
the place is in the very main street of catania but peacefull, the room small but clean with ac. the owners are really kind and carefull! very good experience!
The room we stayed was wonderful with all ameneties as promised and exceeded my expectations. Brigida was helpul in providing the guidance to the place and area is centrally located with good restaurants. Overall i would recommend this to all who would go to Catania..:-) Thanks Brigida
Fantastica ragazza, sempre sorridente, gentile e grande lavoratrice!!!
