    What a wonderful place; it is really unbelievable! The bells, the view of the magic elephant, the location is all the best. The restaurant "bell' Antonio" is superb (we ate there 3 times) go west in the side street at the NW comes of the university plaza Marsha & Lyns

  • September 2022

    We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous apartment, the location is superb, Oxana was wonderful. The views from the terrace were delightful.

  • August 2022

    I enjoyed my stay in Penthouse Duomo in Catania. The location was superb - we were right above the Piazza del Duomo with unobstructed views of the Sant'Agata cathedral, with a huge terrace fitted with two separate sitting areas and a dining area that could be accessed directly from the master bedroom. Even though the apartment is in the heart of the city, it has a completely private feel. Apart from the main terrace, there's also one more - accessed via the kitchen on the upper level. The apartment is very spacious and had all the amenities we could need and more. A gift basket with local wine and products was a great, personal touch. I would definitely stay there again!

    Alles sehr sauber, Ansprechpartner sehr freundlich und immer erreichbar. Vielen Dank

  • June 2022

    We had the most amazing experience. The apartment is beautifully appointed and we felt at home. Our host was wonderful and we needed for nothing. We will definitely come again!

  • May 2022

    Wir hatten wunderbare Tag im Herzen von Catania. Das Wetter war herausragend und die große Dachterrasse haben wir in vollen Zügen genossen. Das Haus, war genau richtig für uns - Cafe unten, die Piazza und der Markt - ideal für Foodies! Wir können das nur empfehlen

  • May 2022

    We had an excellent stay at the gorgeous Penthouse Duomo. Oksana was a gracious and most helpful host, helping us with everything from where to get our covid test, to how to prepare the apartment for the expected thunderstorm (wrongly!) predicted by metereologists. We are blessed to be able to see the world, and rarely encounter and apartment and host as nice as this one.

  • April 2022

    Thank you for the best and lovely stay. We really enjoyed the place and the location. Everything was perfect. We will surely come back.

  • April 2022

  • August 2021

    Appartamento fantastico! Ci si sente veramente a casa e ciò aiuta a godersi la fantastica vacanza in Sicilia. Tutto magnifico, la location è straordinaria, la terrazza e la sua vista impagabili. Complimenti per tutto e spero di tornare al più presto. Complimenti anche per l'accoglienza, la professionalità ed il maestoso cesto di bevenuto con prodotti sublimi. Una settimana meravigliosa in una terra splendida grazie anche a voi!

  • April 2019

    Das schöntes App., das wir je gemietet haben. Unglaublich Blick auf die Piazza/Dom

  • October 2018

    This apartment is fantastic! The views, the location, the decor, the kitchen, the furnishings, the helpful managers! We also appreciated the extravagant welcome basket! Our time there was flawless. We loved the terraces! The excellent wi-fi! Thanks di cuore. Spero che torneremo forse l'anno prossimo!

  • July 2018

    The apartment is absolutely gorgeous. Its a great location right in the heart of Catania.

  • June 2018

    The entrance to the building needs significant remodeling. It makes a very bad first impression, especially when you consider how luxurious and well kept the penthouse is.

  • April 2018

    The assistant was not sufficiently fluent in English or French to communicate adequately but she tried to be most helpful. In the kitchen, the finish of drawers and cupboards was peeling, making a bad impression. On the terrace, the metal flower baskets were unstable and banging on the floor when windy. Disturbing during the night. Overall, the property deserves 9.5 over 10.

  • December 2017

    Casa meravigliosa arredata con gusto, panorama da sogno. Catania bella!

  • October 2017

    We travel a lot, we have been in nice places before, but this was different from the very first moment we came. To start with the key holder: not a stressed agency lady but a polite and helpful host. Then the apartment: sorry to say that, but in Italy it’s not easy to find a place where everything works form internet to shower. We felt at home from the very first minute. It feels like a private home, with all the books, the candles and the generous equipment (we have seen luxury flats without wineglasses). Thank you for the welcome presents, everything of a very high quality level: exactly what we would have left for our friends. After the first day, we discussed the possibility to come back, not just for a week but for a longer period. Thank you so much!

  • October 2017

    We used Penthouse Duomo for our 6 nights in Catania and it was perfect for my family. What a wonderful apartment in a very central location! The church bells were wonderful to listen to while drinking espresso on the terrace. We will definitely stay there again when we come visit family.

  • July 2017

    A beautiful property in a fabulous location. It was a real treat for our family to stay here for a few days in July 2017. Luxurious, clean, spacious and the roof terrace is stunning.

  • April 2017

    Scoprire Catania sotto questa prospettiva è stato un incanto! Questo posto è unico! Grazie per la disponibilità e la grande gentilezza.
