Penthouse Asmundo is without a doubt the most envied apartment of Catania.
Located in one of the majestic historical buildings that form the four corners of Piazza Mazzini, it has its entrance at the beginning of the oldest and most famous fish market of Italy.
The valuable furnishings are a travel between the sacred and the profane, the art and history of Sicily, a land of timeless and enigmatic charm. All rooms are spacious and bright. The attention to details is remarkable: warm and cozy colours, authentic decorations, the most modern comforts, luxury linen sheets and hand-stitched mattresses.
From the terraces and the roof garden the best of Sicily is offered in front of your eyes: the glittering sea, the baroque buildings, the bell towers, the dome of the Cathedral of Sant'Agata, the colours of the market and finally, the Etna, the beating heart of Sicily, which dominates and embellishes with its continuous eruptions Catania’s skyline.
Penthouse Asmundo occupies the second last floor - the third floor - of Palazzo Asmundo (with elevator).
Penthouse Asmundo opens to a gorgeous hall leading first into the elegant and eclectic living room, and then into the dining room with modern kitchen overlooking Piazza Mazzini. There are five double bedrooms with hanging beds and high quality mattresses, and five en-suite bathrooms with spacious showers. One of the five bedrooms is a true suite with even a small living room and a piano.
All rooms have air conditioning, Internet and satellite television.
The upper floor can be reached by going back to the stairwell or the lift. This is the floor of the panoramic terraces with a solarium and a roof garden, but also the floor of a professional kitchen, exceptionally equipped to prepare all delicacies sold at the market down on the streets.
Please note that the terraces and the second kitchen are shared with the guests of the boutique hotel that occupies the lower floors of the same building.
All prices include two hours of daily cleaning.
In the afternoon, after the market, you can park your car under the building. Alternatively, we recommend you the paid parking on the street around the Castello Ursino (5 min. walking) or a covered parking garage at 15 min. on foot.
