Reviews of this property
We'd tried to work out how everything fitted into what looks a small house on the street. Downstairs has a big living room with a lobby to the front door onto the street. There's a kitchen (with a smart dual fuel cooker) and big bathroom (with washing machine) plus a small balcony. I'm not sure how the upstairs had looked originally, but it's now got two decent sized double bedrooms in the apex (plenty of headroom, comfy beds), each with a glazed door opening onto the balcony (not much room, no view other than other buildings 30 metres away, but the sun is on it from mid-morning to early afternoon). There's another smaller bathroom upstairs. Aircon in bedrooms and living room (only two at a time to avoid tripping the electrics). Nice big bowl of fruit to welcome us. Lucio was away so his friends welcomed us; one small initial problem was quickly sorted, but we never did find an English language TV channel.
Getting there late evening, the immediate area seemed a bit "empty" but it's five minutes to Piazzi Mancini (restaurants on each corner) and the Duomo square a bit beyond. There are shops just around the corner from the house (just be aware what meat you're getting from the butcher cooking on a griddle across the road - bistecca de cavallo isn't for everyone).
There is a bus route nearby (but no obvious timetable) so it was walk to the Duomo (10 minutes) or the station (25).
By the end of the week we felt less like tourists wandering through local streets to the restaurants round Castle Ursino (turn right out of the house, first right, bear right at Piazza Maravigna).
We'd wanted somewhere fairly central, and once we'd got our bearings it was ideal, and easily big enough for two couples. Grazie a Lucio e suoi amici.
Este es un alojamiento de los que te sorprenden. Céntrico, limpio, acogedor y restaurado con mucho gusto. Situado en pleno centro histórico, se vive muy de cerca el espíritu y la esencia de Catania. Nuestra visita coincidió con una erupción del Etna, por lo que no pudimos llegar en el tiempo estimado al tener que aterrizar nuestro avión en Palermo, con el consiguiente retraso. La madre de Lucio, muy amablemente, se puso en contacto con nosotros para ponerse a nuestra disposición en lo que hiciera falta. Totalmente recomendable.
Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat eine gute Größe für 5 Personen. Sie liegt nur 5 - 10 Gehminuten vom Zentrum von Catania entfernt. Die Übergabe und Abnahme war sehr freundlich, auch die Kontaktaufnahme durch Lucio war sehr nett. Wir haben es sehr genossen, dass unmittelbar neben der Wohnung alle Lebensmittel des täglichen Bedarfes problemlos (und bis tief in die Nacht hinein) zu bekommen sind.
Had a great stay at this place. It felt authentic and bohemian, but is still very comfortable and clean. The location is central, 5-10 minutes walk from the Elephant square and market, and has shops and pasticceria and everything you need just around the corner. Lucio is an excellent host and very good communicator. Did not meet him in person as he was away but his very charming parents greeted us at the house. We felt very welcome and good and will definitely stay there again when we come back to Sicily :-)

Un apartamento muy limpio, su dueño cuida mucho los detalles y es muy amable y simpático. Se esfuerza mucho para que tu estancia sea increíble y realmente lo consigue. Un apartamento muy cerca del centro y fácil de encontrar. Un 10
Appartamento dotato di tutto il necessario, pulito e confortevole. Vicino allla fermata di Hermanstrasse (poche centinaia di metri a piedi) in un quartiere multietnico, tranquillo e silenzioso la notte (almeno dall'appartamento). Perfettamente collegato con l'aeroporto di Schoenfeld, con mezz'ora e la S45 si arriva direttamente in Hermanstrasse. Scordatevi di mangiare tedesco in zona, solo kebap, asiatico, qualcosa italiano. All'uscita della metropolitana di Hermanstrasse c'è un piccolo centro commerciale dove è possibile acquistare quanto necessario per pranzi e cene nell'appartamento... naturalmente andare a giro per ristoranti è meglio ;-) Da sottolineare l'accoglienza e la gentilezza di Lucio, ti fa sentire a tuo agio subito. Se tornassimo in vacanza a Berlino, Nogatstrasse 15 sarebbe in cima alla lista delle possibili sistemazioni.
We had an awesome stay in this place. The communication with Lucio was super easy and fast and you can always ask him if you have questions about anything. The apartment itself is very nice. Everything you need is there and the bed with the trees is just amazing.
Regarding transport you are 3 mins away from a subway station and busses and trains station are also right there. Also supermarkets as well as restaurants are very close by.
In a nutshell it was a perfect place which I can high recommend to others and I will surely be back for my next stay in Berlin!!!!!
