Description
Located less than 20 meters from Piazza Duomo (Cathedral Square) and Piazza Universita (University Square), Amenano B&B is in the heart of the baroque historical center of Catania. This historical center has always been considered as the jewel of Sicilian architecture and has been declared by Unesco as a World Heritage Site.

Amenano B&B is situated on the second floor of an elegant and historical building built in the 700’s by a noble family. Therefore, the ‘palazzo’ itself is considered to be a building of historical and architectural value.

Nightlife, known as "Movida Catanese" is located a few meters away from our B&B with a many "Caffe Concerto" and other typical local coffee shops specializing in delicious local pastries, pubs, restaurants, sidewalk café’s, tavola calda and many other popular meeting places. By day, one can visit the most important monuments that the city has to offer including the Duomo, the Greco-Roman Theatre, the Amenano Fountain, La Pescheria (a historical and folkloristic fish market) the historical Palazzo dell’Universita, Via Crociferi, Via Etnea (the main shopping street) and everything else that normally can be found in the heart of a City like Catania. All this and more (including the very large daily open-air market) are within walking distance of our B&B.

Amenano B&B is certainly the best located lodging place to suite and cater for every visitor’s needs and for them to conveniently see all that the city of Catania has to offer. From its strategic and central location visitors can easily reach the beaches, the mountains (Mount Etna), the railway station, bus terminus, the seaport, airport – all of which can be reached in a short time even by public transport.

The Amenano B&B has been recently renovated by its owner, an architect by profession, who, while maintaining the elegance of its historical structure, has inserted a touch of modernization and convenience. He has managed to develop an elegant ambiance by utilizing the available vertical space by creating a loft in every room. Departing from the traditional B&B’s, every room is a mini apartment, totally independent from the rest of the building, and developed on two levels by way of an internal staircase. These mini apartments can accommodate up to four persons – two of whom are accommodated in the spacious loft area. Each room has a balcony overlooking typical historic center streets, leading up to the Via Etnea and the Palazzo degli Elefanti, and surrounded by beautiful baroque buildings. Each room has been developed to provide maximum comfort – in fact Amenano B&B is classified in the ‘3 Star’ category. Each mini apartment has its own full private bathroom, mini bar, TV, air conditioner, direct Internet ADSL access and elegantly furnished. Although the B&B is located in the center of town, all rooms are spacious and airy with a quiet and serene atmosphere where one can relax in tranquility. Maximum hygiene and cleanliness are guaranteed – all rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and linen (sheets and towels) are also changed daily.

Amenano B&B offers its guests an impeccable service. The B&B is maintained to the highest quality and no detail has been left out in order to blend the modern with the traditional. The breakfast room has been designed so that its old brick walls and lava stones are clearly visible. The ceiling, which is 12 meters high, is covered with antique wooden strips. Everything has been designed in order to not only conform but to exceed all regulations under law number 46/90. Breakfast will be your occasion to taste typical food that forms part of our own tradition.

Our aim is to assist you in every way we can in order to make your holiday as nice and as special as possible. Apart from offering you our hospitality and warmth, we would be happy to offer you suggestions and directions as to what to see here in Catania and what other places you should visit on our beautiful island of Sicily.

Whilst looking forward to your arrival, there is nothing left except to wish you a Happy Holiday.

Hey from Carmelo

Member since June 2005 | 66,358 hits
I love my work, being an architect and running the B&B..Very open and sociable character, I consider myself a very hospitable person. I love Catania, my beautiful city, and for this reason able to passionately advise my guests the most beautiful and characteristic places to visit..I would like every guest to feel at home in my B&B, maybe even better..

In my free time I love to travel and anyway, every time I receive new guests, talking about the country from where they come, somehow, for a few moments, I also travel with my mind, while remaining in my city.

Il B&B si trova in posizione comodissima per visitare la città. Carmelo ci ha dato alcuni consigli preziosi che ci hanno permesso di organizzarci comodamente per visitare la città cogliendo anche aspetti tipici del posto. Catania è una città molto interessante c è molto da scoprire, soprattutto se aiutati da una valida guida, come è stata la nostra. Soggiorno indimenticabile per tutto, partendo dalla location che ha un suo fascino. Struttura e città che suggerisco di visitare.

Nel "centro del centro" di Catania, come ama dire il gentilissimo e sempre disponibile proprietario Carmelo, la nostra camera era ampia, luminosa e con tutti i comfort moderni, inoltre aveva due balconcini che si affacciano su vicoli storici e pieni di vita. Colazione in una delle piazze più belle della città, presso una pasticceria storica.. Consigliatissimo.

Con mia moglie siamo stati per 4 gg a Catania..abbiamo avuto la fortuna di prenotare dal Sig Carmelo, ottimo padrone di casa, gentilissimo, cordiale e discreto. Il B&B si trova nel centro antico di Catania a 2 passi dal Duomo, dalla fontana dell'Amenano, e dal palazzo dell' università. Con pochi passi si "vive" Catania..e che vita. Camere pulitissime e posizione strategica. Una città da vivere e scoprire..soprattutto a piedi per le sue vie..anche quelle più interne e meno frequentate, alla ricerca di scorci, sapori e costumi tipicamente siciliani. La colazione non viene servita presso la struttura, ma si assapora in uno dei bar più storici e prestigiosi di Catania..Il Bar Prestipino, uno dei modi migliori per iniziare bene la giornata. B&b Amenano una garanzia, se dovesse capitare di tornare a Catania, credo che torneremo ancora dal Sig. Carmelo..

Nel cuore di Catania, nell'elegante (e sicuramente ancor più bello dopo il restauro) palazzo Roccaforte, dietro il palazzo dell'Università, questo B&B ha dato a me e famiglia una bellissima accoglienza! L'architetto Carmelo ci ha dato tutte le indicazioni necessarie per il nostro breve e intenso soggiorno! Grazie..
