Via Plebiscito, 133
Cristina (Sicilian) and Rob (English) welcome you to the "5 Balconi Bed & Breakfast", a sunny palazzo built in the 1800's, with lots of colour, character and charm. (As featured in the Rough Guide, Lonely Planet, Footprint & Condè Nast Traveller Guides).
We are situated in the historic heart of Catania, in the quarter of the famous fish market and right above the 13th Century Ursino Castle, which dominates the piazza and gardens of Federico di Svevia. Here you can wine and dine "al fresco" on delicious typical dishes at very reasonable prices, while soaking up the atmosphere of an authentic Sicilian quarter.
We offer elegant & luxurious rooms to accommodate singles, doubles, triples, with inter-connecting family rooms for up to 5 people. All have 5 metre high domed ceilings and chandeliers, very comfortable beds with mosquito nets, duvets in winter and flowering balconies of iron and marble.
Our breakfasts are nutritious and delicious and can be taken in your room or in the communal dining area.
We are only 10 mins. by bus/car from the airport, a 20 min. walk to a golden sandy beach and a convenient base for exploring the East coast of the island (Taormina, Etna, Siracusa, Pantalica & Enna are all within 1 hours drive).
Parking is free, infront of the B&B and in the surrounding streets. We are situated on the 2nd floor and have a lift for our guests comfort and convenience.
