#104 of 451 B&Bs / Inns in Catania
The idea behind our Bed&Breakfast SolSicily is to offer a 3-star service at an affordable price. The building, a palazzo constructed during the second half of the 19th century, and the interior of our B&B have been restructured according to an individual taste, without however disavowing the original characteristics of the era of construction.

SolSicily is very centrally located in what was once a 19c palazzo. It’s on the 3rd floor, and the only way up is a winding stone staircase. The trip up is worth it! Our host, Christian, a Sicilian native, gave us a very warm welcome. Our room was ready – a delightful eclectic room with a balcony, sofa sitting area, in room coffee and biscuits and a bathroom full of toiletries for our use. There was a guest refrigerator as well. Christian made us coffee, gave us a map and pointed out sightseeing and restaurant highlights in his very good English. Our hearty breakfast was laid out for us at our own table when we arrived in the breakfast room, with plenty more on the counter should we want it. Breakfast consisted of light and fresh croissants, flaky rolls, meats, cheese, hard boiled eggs and a platter of tomatoes, peppers and olives. There was a pitcher of water, fresh juice, coffee, espresso, cappuccino and various jams and spreads. It was the perfect start to our day. Our two nights at SolSicily was a perfect way to start our Sicilian adventure!

Amazing room! quiet, clean and beautiful with chill area, balcony and private bathroom. The B&B is very well located, near the center of the city and the train station or bus station. Breakfast is generous and Christian, our host, was very welcoming and friendly. He gave us a lot of advices, we enjoyed our stay at Solsicily !!

Characterful great value rooms in a family apartment. Friendly helpful hosts, generous and tasty breakfast selection. Area is a slice of contemporary Sicilian life. Yes, perhaps some less than salubrious individuals about but never a feeling of intimidation. A good location near to centre and within walking distance of lidos for swimming and sunbathing. We'll definitely stay again if back in Catania.

There is absolutely nothing to say bad about Sicily or Catania. People are great, friendly, interested. I've lived there for 5 years prior and visit as often as possible. Every 4 years or so. Excellent country 👍. So much to see & do. Travel around the island is easy. Great golf course, el piccolo on Mt. Etna, so many beautiful little towns, beaches, bars, coffee shops, deli's. It's simply the best place I've ever been. I like others, such as Antalya, Turkey. Mallorca. Torremolinos, Spain. Sicily is #1.

This is a traditionally Sicilian flat that has been converted to a B&B. The host family live above. Upon arrival it was a bit hard to see the gate to enter the property. Be aware that it is many stairs to get up to the B&B. Our room was nice and fairly big with a double bed, desk, chair, sofa and a small balcony towards the street. Our bathroom was private, but across the hall. Bathroom was big. The air condition in our room worked well and was not noisy which was helpful for me as I need to be in a cool room to be able to sleep. We had a small fridge in our room,but it didn´t work.But there was a common fridge by the entrance to the B&B that we could have used if we wanted. The breakfast was basic with local food which is nice. It was self service as no one were there all the time. When I booked the room I asked for gluten free bread, but the host insisted on giving me fruit instead of providing gluten free bread. Would have preferred gluten free bread, but fruit is good as well). There are prostitutes and immigrants in the area, but they didn´t bother us at all. They were just sitting around here and there in the street. We never felt unsafe and I don´t think a woman would be in any danger there either(that´s my opinion). The hosts was friendly and helpful. Location is good. Walking distance to most interesting areas in the historical part of Catania. There is also a big market every day few minutes walk from the hotel where you can buy every thing from fresh vegetables, cheese and fish to clothes and perfume. There is a small food store just below the B&B on street level.
