San Placido Inn Bed & Breakfast

Piazza San Placido, 3 , Catania, 95131 Italy (Show map)


San Placido Inn Bed & Breakfast is a prestigious eighteenth century attic in the core of the historical centre, close to the Cathedral Square. It is located at 5 km. from the airport, at 1 km. from the railway station and at 100 mt. from the sea-side, right in the cultural- historical and commercial centre. The strategic position of our home allows to have at hand both the most interesting architectural monuments (Cathedral, Piazza Teatro Massimo, the Greek theatre, Biscari Palace, and so on), and the widest range of offers for the spare time, shopping and entertainments. Our rooms are wide, bright, quiet and they all enjoy of a wonderful landscape. Some of them look directly on a big terrace fronting the sea and all of them have a private bathroom. The rooms are provided with all comforts: TV, fridge and air-conditioned.

Very convenient location, in an atmospheric building with a fantastic terrace. Spotlessly clean and a beautifully decorated room. I stayed for two nights. I arrived very early (9 am) the first day, but this didn't cause any problems at all.

stare bene a Catania

Siamo stati un breve week end a Catania, ma essere stati anche solo due giorni al San Placido ci ha fatto apprezzare l'ospitalità di Orazio e la bellezza del panorama che si ammira dalle sue terrazze.

Colazione nella terrazza più bella della città!

Più che un B&B è un vero museo d'arte, ogni angolo della struttura espone oggetti della Sicilia più antica ed autentica, le terrazze sono incredibili, si vede l'etna ed il mare,sembra di poterle toccare con un dito, very exellece!!
