We had a great stay! Marco was available via WhatsApp for information about check in and check out, and provided us with fresh croissants in the morning. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The room we were in was quite dark but there was a quiet balcony where we could have a nice coffee in the morning.
Primo Maison has a very chic look and this was one of the main reasons we chose it. The bedroom is quite spacious and the feeling is exacerbated by the high vaulted ceiling and the chandelier that compliments it. The decorations are quite nice. Overall, it's a nice break from the Nordic design that has become so common and I love how it hints at the look of Italian palaces, without being crowded or kitsch. It is located on a good street, midway between the train station and the city center. It is exactly what I wanted, but if I were to visit Catania again, I'd probably stay closer to the center. Breakfast was a nice touch. To describe it, I think it's fair to be fair, manage your expectations and compare it to breakfast in Italy. Compared to what you might have in a hotel, this is frugal and limited. You will not find a selection of cured meats, cheese, omelette, jams, fruits, teas and orange juice. Italians are strange and have the aforementioned as an appetizer plate in the afternoon or before dinner. They also don't know tea. What they eat instead is sweet pastry and coffee. I have no idea why they don't have eggs in their menu and why there is no orange juice flowing from every fountain, considering there are orange trees and orchards everywhere in the area. What we had at Primo Maison though, was top quality and varied. The first two mornings we had croissants with pistachio filling (good in their own right, but we are not accustomed to sweets for breakfast) and then the host was very accommodating and not only changed our menu, but also brought something different every morning to suit our tastes. All my appreciation for that. Last, but not least, the host was helpful and communicative and replied quickly to our questions on Whatsapp.
Before arriving, I asked the host if we get toiletries and he said yes, but unfortunately all we found were some leftovers from other tourists. Toiletries should be included by default. The room can be heated with the AC, but the bathroom is cold.
Close to the city center, good parking possibilities, lovely breakfast and a very hospitable host
Very confortable towels
No internet on the first day, noisy apartment, mattress was unevenly soft
An excellent B&B! Clean, quiet, located in a very good area, close to all tourist attractions. Delicious Italian breakfast. Very discreet host, but interested in our comfort. Thanks, Marco!
