A nice hotel about 20 minutes walk away from the Cathedral. We stayed there as a wider family group and enjoyed it. Catania is a bit of a dump but this Hotel was very modern and fresh inside. Breakfast was nice. The manager and staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel is centrally located with rooms that are big, modern and clean. Breakfast was very good too, varied with sweet and savoury options. The owners are helpful in every way from the day I wanted to book till the end of our stay. We were a big group, thus it was not easy to accommodate all of us but they made sure our requests were honoured. Thanks ...we will be back!

This headline sums it up for me. We had no previous experience traveling to Catania, nor did we have any friends or family who could offer recommendations. That being said, after spending a lot of time surfing around the internet, we took a shot with OttoMood Ala Ovest Catania Centro. Ribella was an outstanding host and help for us. She was very attentive and responsive from our inquiry to check in a bit early, to making a dinner reservation for us on our first night, as well as offering other recommendations, all of which were very good. We had a triple, a Queen and a Twin, so it was a good sized room with a big sofa, too. The super tall doors that fully opened to Via XX Settembre made us feel like we were truly city dwellers for our 3 night stay. The bathroom is totally new and very spacious. The morning breakfast offered enough choices to get us started each day. If you can get the freshly squeezed Sicilian orange juice, go for it; it's great. Location is very good. You're basically on Via Etnea, which is a main drag with plenty of everything and a 15 minute walk to the heart of city center. There are two good bars about 1/3 of a mile away--Savia & Spinella. Both excellent for drinks (hot and cold), casual food, gorgeous pastries and both do a very nice job with their granite'. Try the Pistacchio one at Spinella. Also, there's a wonderful very old, narrow street just off of Etnea & Umberto--Filomena. It is essentially Restaurant Alley. It's steeped in history and offers many quality choices all just a 7 minute walk from OttoMood. The only negative out of the whole trip was the very poor and spotty Wi-Fi in our room. Trying to use the internet, whether it was for smart phone or laptop, was a struggle. Also, when we did get home at night and wanted to settle in and watch TV that, too, was a choppy reception. All in all, we were very satisfied with our stay at OttoMood Ala Ovest Catania Centro.

Compared to other B&B’s we stayed on this trip, OttoMood doesn’t stack up. The room was clean, decorated well though needs attention. The shower drain was very slow to drain so every shower was taken in 2” of standing water. The a/c unit in our room did not work. The proprieter did check on the unit, though it still was not fixed. (The hallway and common kitchen area were much cooler than our room ever became.) The bed was comfortable and spacious. A shelving unit just inside the entry was useful in staying organized. The safe was very small, but was bolted down and worked with the provided key. Additionally, the wifi was not working on the first night with the codes/access provided in the room. We were given an additional access login on our second day but the connection was very slow when it was working. Prior to arrival, communication from the was sparse and slow. We were given bus directions from the airport that said the 112 bus stop was just in front of the property. Unfortunately, we were not able to find a stop number either on the bus or at the street. Additionally, the stop we got off at was around the corner and not what we would consider “in front” of the property. It’s possible we took the wrong one. When we arrived, the elevator was not working/turned off so we carried our bags up 3 flights of steps to the room. We did not have the breakfast, as it finished by 9 a.m. each day so was not in our schedule. The proprieter was helpful with directions, map and making airport taxi arrangements. She also allowed us a slightly later than 10 am checkout and held our bags due to a lat afternoon train.

The hotel is nicely located to explore Catania. The staff is very friendly specially Ribella, she even brought some kids books for our little one! The breakfast is quite varied and the freshly squeezed orange juice is delicious.

Great base with which to explore Catania, Taormina and Etna. Great breakfast with tea or coffee, cereals, toast, juices, croissants cheeses and cakes. Room had all we needed and borrowed an iron as my clothes were creased. Accessible as the bus we took from the airport and back stopped a 2 min walk away,handy! We also took a bus to Taormina which was a 15 min walk away as was the centre of town just walk along Via Etna. They helped us book our 4x4 trip to Etna which picked and dropped us back from the B&B. The lady also suggested a street nearby for local restaurants which was great. My one small concern when we arrived in Catania was graffiti everywhere and we thought about safety but we were two girls and had no problems whatsoever out late on our own and everyone was very friendly and family orientated, no trouble whatsoever.
