About 5 Balconi B&B

We are situated in the historic heart of Catania, 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 a real Sicilian quarter.

NB: Free Wi-Fi, air conditioning/heating are standard in all the rooms. Tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge, DVD and video player are also available for guests use. Bathrooms are shared.

Our breakfasts are nutritious and delicious and can be taken in your room or in the communal dining area.

The breakfast options are:
• Fruit juice ~ fresh fruit (in season)
• Cereal/muesli with milk ~ yoghurt
• Freshly baked bread/toast with butter and organic marmalades ~ fresh Sicilian "cornetto" (filled croissant)
• Tea (Indian, herbal, green etc.) ~ Coffee (espresso, macchiato, cappuccino, latte & americano) ~ Hot Chocolate

Accommodation Information

We offer elegant and luxurious rooms: single, double and a twin. The twin and a double w/extra bed also interconnect for a family of up to 5 people. All have 5 meter high domed ceilings and chandeliers, very comfortable beds with mosquito nets, duvets in winter and flowering balconies of iron and marble.

Location Information

We are 10mins. from the airport, a 20min. walk to a long golden sandy beach and a convenient base for exploring the east coast of the island (Etna, Taormina, Siracusa, Enna & Caltagirone are all within a 1 hour drive). Piazza Duomo and the fish market are a with-in 5 min. walk.
