A home away from home

4.0 on September 10, 2014

We had a great stay here! Right after we settled in we got that cozy and pleasant feeling of "home away from home" (yes, being dead-tired from travelling was also a factor). Despite the average 32-33^C in Catania during our stay our room no.4 would remain rather cool throughout the whole day. At that time it hadn't rained for a few months, so we had almost no problem with mosquitoes. The room was cleaned daily, linens and towels changed regularly. The staff were friendly & accommodating (no matter how busy they were at the moment) in helping us get around Catania, decide what to see, where to go, eat, or shop (proving there's much more to good advice than reading online fora). They are versatile in most major European languages so we had no trouble communicating. The morning coffee at the B&B was a great pick-me-up. The best thing about this place? We were almost never lonely at the breakfast table! This could be quite a mood booster - most guests run into each other at breakfast, all sorts of conversations may strike: from small talk and chit-chat to exchanging experiences, with the occasional laughs and jokes... Of course, there's always a chance you'd run into the grumpy morning type, but there's nothing the B&B could do about it. Re-reading the above seems like, instead of spending a vacation, I was scanning the B&B!... So, I must point out that we spent 10 nights there - probably a lot longer than any typical B&B tourist with the usual 2-3 nights, a tight agenda & little time to pay attention to too many details. Although we ourselves were out sightseeing most of the time, the duration of our stay probably allowed us to get more familiar with the place. Finally - we very much enjoyed our time at B&B Globetrotter Catania. Thank you, Danielle, Antonella et al., for a most pleasant stay! Wishing you all the best, and hoping to see you again. A presto! ;) B&M.


Best B&B in Catania ever!!!

5 on June 10, 2014

Don't miss Catania in your Italian grand tour. But above all don't miss a stay in this wee gem of a bed & breakfast! Situated in the heart of the old town, surrounded by voices, colours, scents and flavors of the traditional fish market, every room is confortable , nice and free wifi but the best is their staff and the owner Daniele who will change your journey in unique. Last but not least, breakfast is served on the same table with all the other guests so you will share your experience and get advices for your holiday in Sicily.


delizioso b&b in pieno centro

accogliente b&b nel centro di Catania

5 on November 19, 2013

Dedico volentieri due righe al Globetrotter di Catania perché sono rimasta molto soddisfatta del mio soggiorno in questa struttura. Sono stata a Catania per dieci giorni per motivi di lavoro e ho alloggiato in questo B&B che ha una posizione strategica in pieno centro. Le camere sono confortevoli e accoglienti e ho avuto la possibilità di cucinare liberamente nella cucina del B&B e di cenare in compagnia del proprietario, Daniele, e degli altri ospiti, aspetto molto positivo dato che dovendo lavorare anche la sera purtroppo non sempre potevo uscire a cenare fuori (un vero peccato essendo in Sicilia). Con una mia collega abbiamo approfittato dell'unico giorno di pausa per un'escursione sull'Etna con EtnaExperience: inizialmente non volevamo andare perché non avevamo né scarpe da trekking né giacca, ma Daniele ci ha rassicurate del fatto che ci avrebbero fornito tutto loro e così è stato! Sono contenta di aver seguito il suo consiglio perché è stata una bellissima esperienza di cui conserverò sempre uno splendido ricordo legato a questo città. L.


fantastico soggiorno in centro

5 on October 03, 2013

Sono andata al Globetrotter 4 giorni fa ed è stato davvero un soggiorno fantastico. Al nostro arrivo le ragazze della reception ci hanno accolti cordialmente e ci hanno subito coinvolti con la loro simpatia. La nostra stanza era molto carina, e i letti comodissimi,perfino mio figlio che non dorme mai al di fuori di casa sua è riuscito a riposare perfettamente. Impeccabile la pulizia. In 3 giorni,non abbiamo dovuto usare la macchina proprio perchè il B&B è in una posizione centralissima. ad un minuto a piedi dal Duomo. Io lo consiglio vivamente se volete sentirvi a casa. Torneremo sicuramente.


praticamente perfetto

5 on December 09, 2012

Ho soggiornato 4 giorni in Novembre e mi sono trovata benissimo. La posizione del B&B è centralissima, non ho avuto mai bisogno di usare mezzi pubblici o auto perchè potevo raggiungere tutte le zone di interesse storico-culturale comodamente a piedi. Il b&B è pulito e fornito di una cucina a disposizione dei clienti dove possono cucinare autonomamente. Il personale è gentilissimo, accogliente e disponibile a fornire qualsiasi tipo di informazione un ospite abbia bisogno. La prossima volta che tornerò a Catania sicuramente soggiornerò di nuovo al Globetrotter. Paola


Piacevole soggiorno al b&b Globetrotter

Ho soggiornato solo per due notti ma mi sono trovata benissimo. Il personale e' stato molto carino e attento a soddisfare ogni mia richiesta; la mia camera era molto spaziosa, elegante e curata nei minimi particolari nonche' abbastanza pulita. Consigliata al 100%


Exceptionnel!

5 on April 12, 2012

J'ai vraiment étais satisfaite de mon séjour dans ce B&B. Il est situé en plein centre ville de Catane. Cela favorise les déplacements et l'accès aux visites. Les chambres sont très propres et vraiment bien équipées ( TV, clim, serviettes de toilettes,..) Le B&B dispose également d'un accès WIFI gratuit et d'un ordinateur à disposition des clients. Le petit déjeuner est délicieux et abondant. L'équipe est vraiment accueuillante, chaleureuse et compétente. Elle a su répondre à mes questions, me donner des informations pertinantes sur Catane mais aussi sur tout le reste de la Sicile (excursion sur l'Etna, comment rejoindre les autres villes,...). Je tiens également à souligner le très bon rapport qualité/prix.


Great place to stay

My husband and I went to Catania for the San Valentins day and this B&B realy surprised our imagination. The rooms are very clean an confortable. you can use internet WIFI for free an each room has the climat on so I didn't felt cold at all. The girls that work in the receptionare very gentl and sweet, the tell you all the good places to see in Catania. We realy liked the breakfast, because it was very abundant and hat a lot of stuff to choose from. The location is perfect, because it is in the center of the city, just a few minutes from the Plaza Duomo. great place to stay in.


Ottimo

5 on December 12, 2011

Quest'anno il ponte dell'Immacolata è stato abbastanza lungo così abbiamo deciso di far una bella vacanza sempre in Sicilia ma nel versante opposto al nostro. Io e mia sorella conoscevamo già la città di Catania ma il Globetrotter è stata una meravigliosa scoperta!!! :) Le ragazze della reception sono simpaticissime e carinissime. Il giorno in cui siamo arrivate ci hanno regalato una cartina e mostrato i localini più interessanti per la movida catanese... e una sera siamo addirittura uscite assieme!!! Il B&B è cmq molto centrale, quindi comodo per spostarsi. A due minuti di distanza c'è un parcheggio notturno dove con 5 E a notte avevamo la macchina al sicuro. Spero di poter ritornare presto a Catania e quindi al Globetrotter perchè n'è davvero valsa la pena! RAPPORTO QUALITA' PREZZO: PIU' CHE OTTIMO! Adele

Directions to property:

Globetrotter B&B is located in the heart of the historical centre of Catania next to the old fish market “A Piscaria”, 100 metres from the Duomo Square with the cathedral and elephant . Behind the B&B you will find the Ursino Castle and further down the street there is the greek theatre, Roman amphitheatre and the famous Via Crociferi with Bellini’s Home. Via Etnea begins from the Duomo Square which is filled with several churches built in late baroque period (World heritage UNESCO) where you can go shopping during the day and party during the night all year round. B&B is located 5 km from the airport, 1 km from the railway station, 300 metres from the port, 700 metres from the beach, 30 minutes from Etna, 40 minutes from Taormina and 60 minutes from Siracusa. How to reach us by car you can reach the historical centre to the Duomo Square-Ursino Castle-Pesqueria following the map above. We advise you to get to the B&B after 13:30 because parking problems can be caused as the fish market closes at that particular hour. From the arrival point at the airport you can catch a bus every 20 minutes to get to the city center (from 5:00 till 24:00) which will reach the historical centre in about 15 minutes, ask the driver to go to the Duomo Square then to Mazzini’s Square and then Via Auteri 40-Vicolo della Lanterna 14 (5 minutes walking). from the railway station you have to get a bus, (431-439-427) which will bring you to the Duomo Square in 10 minutes, then go to Mazzini’s Square and Via Auteri 40-Vicolo della Lanterna 14 (5 minutes walking). .mappy.it
