“Pros with a lot of cons!”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great accommodation in a excellent town/city and it is central to everything and everything is accessible. However the apartment needs air conditioning in every room or powerful fans as the ones in the apartment are not great. Customers should be informed that you have to pay €10 per day for the only two air conditioning in the apartment which is an additional charge to what is already expensive. The owner could be more hospitable and the toilet by the garden smells of sewage.

Mr Mustafa, I wonder how its possible to write me a text message in my phone that you enjoyed the apartment and now you write this.
Do you think I have to be more hospitable? please read my other review and try to learn how to be more communicative :) Maybe this is the probelm. I have spnet one hour with you and your family to explain everything at your arrival and you didnt speak at all :) You left the house like after a bomb was exploding in : I never seen nothing more dirty that the flat after your stay and you complain about the extra charge of air conditioning? Everything you have paid is clearly written in the advert; probably you have to read better or just to read :) Duriung your booking, after your booking you NEVER was in contact with me and you think that i'm not hospitable : ) I dont want even answer about the smell of sewage that you felt; i think is only your fantasy. No one was complain about it or maybe you need to flush water in the toilet more frequently :) For me this review sounds funny. Thanks any way.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Massimiliano's apartment, it was everything we wanted. The balcony view over the castle was fantastic, lots going on. Close to all attractions & amenities, local restaurants excellent. The Agora Hostel - Cave Restaurant (best steak ever). Enjoyed walking through the fish, meat & veg markets, lots of noise vibrant and exciting. Visited Taormina by train, advise anyone to take taxi to the town from the station as it is too high and winding to walk. Views over bay fantastic. Also visited Siracusa (Ortigia) by bus excellent trip, a must to see. Both Taormina & Siracusa very different from Catania we enjoyed them all. Will definitely try to visit again. Thank you Massimiliano for being so friendly and helpful.

It is a great location within walking distance to all main attractions in catania. The rooms are large and clean with balconies overlooking the piazza Castello Ursino excellent view.

You feel welcome right from the moment you enter the mansion greeted by the host (Massimiliano) Very friendly and speaks good English , great tips for sightseeing he also arranged for us a Mount Etna tour with Vincenzo a great guide .

Wish we could stayed longer , would definitely come back some other time .

Highly Recommended.

A huge apartment complete with balconies, internal garden and eat in kitchen. Location puts you in close walking distance to the food and fish markets and to the central shopping district.
