Perfectly converted and very welcoming...a room view to the garden provides a relaxing artmosphere while the gentle staff compliments the stay.Centrally located within walking distance to the main street. Definitely one to consider for a stay over in Catania.

A Green Haven I really loved this B&B. It is hidden away from the busy centre but it’s not too far to walk at the end of a night out. The owner was friendly and helpful and the place has a really, personal, relaxed feel to it. Our room still had the character of the old building with beautiful old...

If you are looking for a quite and cosy place in Catania, Casa Barbero is a good place to stay. Ask Antonio Mazzoleni for a room in the courtyard. You can walk down Via Etnea and reach the city center in 10 minutes. You can leave you car at a supervised parking 200 mt. from Casa Barbero. Very convenient.

We stayed at Casa Barbera for just one night but having been the year before we knew we wanted to revisit it. This time we were in an upstairs bedroom which was just as delightful as the ones in the courtyard, perhaps even more so as we had a small private balcony where we could sit out and enjoy an...

Dear Guest, in Italy is not "inhuman" honoring a commercial contract, I do not know in your country ... by the way I communicated that, as our practice is out of Policy, I wouldn't charge the night if I resold the room. You chose to come here and to leave this comment. P.s. funny that the other 500 + comments...

We had the best time staying with Anthony and his family. The location was exactly where we needed to be to take the CircumEtnea Railway onward to our next destination. The hosts were readily available by phone and cheerfully provided for our needs. The room was very nice and beautifully decorated.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Barbero. It is well located in Catania and is a true oasis in the centre of the city. The check-in details were superb. The garden is charming and the room well appointed with all amenities in a very nice bathroom. The hosts are pleasant and helpful but are not always available. We particularly...

Very pleasant, clean, nicely decorated bed and breakfast. The host is very friendly and helpful, and very child-friendly. The breakfast is good and served in a very pleasant courtyard. We will certainly stay there again when we are in Catania.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the city center of Catania, an elegant residence dating back to the early '900 wisely transformed into an elegant and charming B&B. This Bed and Breakfast retains the charm of Art Nouveau that lives through stucco and frescoes, expertly blended with contemporary furniture, all combined with warm colors and quality materials that will make you feel at home. In the centre of the residence and in front of every room, all with ensuite bathroom, a place of great relaxation is at your disposal: a Mediterranean garden where breakfast is served during the warm season or where you can have a break and use our free wi-fi. The B&B is 200mt away from the Borgo Metro and a few steps away from Cavour Square, crossroad of the Catanese autobus service. In a few minuts you can reach the Bothanical Garden, Villa Bellini (the city park), different restaurants, taverns and pizzerie. Via Etnea, Unesco heritage and shopping street, is attainable in 5 minuts. ... more   less
