After a great welcome, we settled into the spacious and, quite unique, apartment. There was enough space for the 5 of us, with two large beds as well. Big living room where you can hang out and relax, bathroom has a good shower and enough space. Although we did not use the kitchen, it is easy to cook there. The apartment is located on the busiest, main street of Catania but you won't hear a single thing when you close the doors (great isolation!). Everything (sightseeing, restaurants, shops) is within walking distance and the bus to the airport is across the street. We only spent one night here at the end of our trip, but I would highly recommend Maria Cristina's apartment.

Amazing house at an absolute amazing location. Traffic around the place is a bit chaotic for non Italians. (Safe)Parking is available nearby at a small 300m walk, at the piazza Giovanni verga. The city centre is easily available by just walking to the end of the street. Hostess is able to explain the necessary things in English. Beds were ok, bathroom was clean and two small balconies were ideal for smoking. We had a pleasant stay!

We were lucky to book Maria Cristinas big appartment on short notice for our family after we had to unexpectedly prolong our stay in Sicily. Within hours (or was it even minutes ? ) Maria reacted and confirmed the booking and received us very friendly when we arrived in Catania. Everything was according to our expectation. The flat is very centrally located on the main road in Catania. This also means it's a bit noisy ... but that's what it is in the center of a city like Catania. Consider again if you want to do a lot of cooking (the kitchen works for a cup of coffee but not for much more) but otherwise all is fine.

Maria Cristina was an excellent host and extremely accommodating with our needs. We had a great welcome. The apartment was clean and spacious, comfortable and met our needs for an overnight stay. The flat is centrally located and close to some fantastic gelaterias and the beautiful Bellini gardens. The flat comes with aircondition which as ace, as it very hot in Catania when we were there.

The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Catania. It is big and furnished with everything (the kitchen is really small but it works well). The Alibus (bus that connects catania to the airport) is just down the street. Maria Cristina is a nice and helpful host.
