Ottimo Weekend a Catania

  • 5 of 5

Ho trascorso con degli amici un fine settimana a Catania, ho scelto l'appartamento Civita sia per la posizione centralissima a pochi minuti dalla stazione e ad un passo dai migliori locali della Città sia perché dotato di due camere da letto separate. Lo staff gentilissimo e preparato ci ha dato una mappa correlata di informazioni utili. L'unica cosa poco entusiasmante è l'entrata dell'edificio un po' malandata ma superando l'apparenza l'appartamento è carino e ristrutturato. E' stata un' ottima scelta, da ripetere assolutamente!

Inacceptable

  • 1 of 5

Ce logement, situé au 1er étage dans le quartier du port (populaire mais central) se compose de :

- seulement 2 chambres mais 7 lits

-pas de salon

-cuisine et salle d'eau minuscules.

Cette location sous équipée (matériel de cuisine et de couchage vraiment insuffisant, pas d'isolations phonique et anti-moustique, pas de possibilité de lavage du linge ni d'étendage, chaises de camping) est en dégradation (vitre cassée, ampoule défectueuse, fuite d'eau aux WC, literie très douteuse)

Conclusions :

-accueil sympathique avec informations pratiques

-nous avons été trompés par les photos de présentation ne correspondant pas à la réalité. Aucun confort, aucune possibilité de s'isoler, environnement bruyant (voisinage et moteur du commerce voisin ?)

Pas à la hauteur des attentes, un état des lieux s'impose.

Very Bad

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was not clean. The kitchen was not fully equiped: 2 knifes, no wine glasses, hardly anything to cook with. No kitchen towels.

Only one bathtowel per person!

And there were BEDBUGS!

The apartment is above a gelateria that is open until 2 o'clock at night! So very noisy!!!

I do not recommend this apartment to anyone.

una casa vacanza a Catania ottima per 2 coppie

  • 5 of 5

Questa casa vacanze è stata l'ideale per il nostro soggiorno, 2 camere da letto separate con tutti i confort, la TV, il Wifi , il climatizzatore ed un soggiorno cucina dove poter stare tutti insieme, quindi direi ottima scelta per 2 coppie in vacanza, unico appunto negativo l'ingresso un pò decadente ma la casa è nuova!!!
