Description
BAD is the first designer Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Catania. Much more than a simple B&B, it is a unique mix of hospitality and creativity, ideal for both those travelling for pleasure and for business. It unites the fascinating Catanese baroque architecture with contemporary art and design.

At BAD one breathes the creativity of Giulia and Alessandro, the two owners and curators. Professionals in the world of advertising and graphic design, they have expertly created within the ample and comfortable rooms different ambiences, exhibiting psychedelic wallpapers, amazing 19th Century Sicilian artifacts, vintage furniture and works of young aspiring artists.

Every room of the B&B in fact has a different mood, colour and feeling, with two or three beds, private bathroom and naturally all the comforts you would expect.

Because BAD is more than a sleeping experience.

Area Duomo
BAD is in the beating heart of Catania: in a XIX century building, next to the historical fish market “la Pescheria” and within a stone’s throw of the Cathedral and main monuments of the city. Furthermore BAD is only a few minutes away from the airport, the train station and the port, and just 100 meters from a bus station which connects to other main Sicilian resorts.

A 5 min d'une des places historiques de la ville et d'une gare routière, accueil toujours impeccable avec beaucoup de facilité pour arriver et quitter la chambre. Chambres propres au décors originaux. Tout cela invite à revenir souvent pour visiter Catane et ses environs ou pour faire une halte entre l'aéroport et les Iles éoliennes.

Alloggio spazioso e pulito, esattamente come descritto. Posizione stratosferica a due-passi-due dal mercato del pesce e quindi da Piazza Duomo. Titolare molto gentile, disponibile e preparato. Consiglio.

Ottima posizione, personale cordiale, belle stanze (la stanza numero 2 ha una doccia fantastica!). La colazione è servita in un bar in piazza Duomo a poca distanza dal B&B.

La caratteristica principale di questo B&B, al di là dell'arredamento particolare, è la posizione strategica e tranquillissima, a due passi dal centro storico e di fronte al mercato del pesce, inoltre le persone che vi accoglieranno sono veramente gentili e disponibili pronte a rispondere ad ogni vostra domanda e a risolvere ogni problema. La struttura è pulitissima! l'unica pecca i bagni.
