The local area outside is noisy at night but you will be on the fifth floor. The hostess is over-the-top kind and helpful. Breakfast is exceptional. The sea and sky are ever visible -- the mood changes with the weather, which was sunny even in February.

A neat, cosy room with a view to the sea, clean and equipped with everything you'll need. The breakfast is rich and tasty, worth waking up. And most importantly, Sandra the lovely hostess took care of us so good we couldn't ask for a better experience. If you would like to split up make sure you get an extra key since the room's power supply is also locked by it.

If our son had not lived in Catania we may never have found the place. Ask for specific directions before you travel. Bus system is difficult, but several bus stops within the block. The inside knowledge was very important. Once we arrived, Sandra made us feel at home. Only needed passports for check-in, returned promptly. Didn't feel the "hostage effect" mentioned by other reviewers. We were on the side closest to carnival, however not a noise or light problem with the balcony door closed and the curtains pulled. Small room and even smaller shower ( Small even for European standards.) The balcony made up for it. Helped with the great ocean view.The room was clean and smelled fresh. Nice breakfast the 2 days we were there. Fresh each day with variety, fruit, danish and meat/cheese plate. Bus stop very near and within walking distance of several places to eat as well as a market and ATM.

Many thanks, Sandra, for making me feel so at home. After years of staying in hotels for work I've made the concious decision to opt now for BnB accommodation and I have no regrets so far. Each experience has been extremely positive and it's a pleasure to meet real people on every occasion. You're not a customer but a guest and this makes all the difference. A real pleasure which I hope to repeat more often.

My family and I spent 3 nights at B&B Venere in Catania. The B&B is located in an ugly and rundown council house building, far from the historic centre and on the doorstep of a permanent funfair noisy throughout the night. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable and hygiene standard is good. Breakfast is mediocre, with limited selection, no fresh milk or and for three days in a row we were offered the exact same cake. At arrival the owner asked us for the passports for registration which she refused to return until the bill was paid. We agreed to pay a day in advance to have our documents back. Needless to say: AVOID the place.

"When the fox can't reach the grapes he says that they are sour" Each day 1000 excuses for not paying. Best thing is not to comment... I could offend you........
