Property conditions & facilities




8/10 Very good

High quality and central location
Dome is in an absolutely fantastic location and our apartment felt very safe and also very quiet considering the central position. Our check in was easy and we were given some fantastic local intel from Nicola when he welcomed us to Done (his annotated map really helped us make the most of our stay!!) The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and well kitted out. I must say I was too short to reach a lot of the amenities in the kitchen which was quite a downside for me! The small kitchen is also lacking in a few basics like salt and pepper which was a big shame but easily remedied. The chairs in the apartment would definitely also benefit from a cushion, I found them uncomfortable and struggled to sit on them for any length of time which again is a minor issue and didn't detract from the overall quality of the room (which was fantastic). I really cannot stress enough how fantastic the location is, and the café just by the front entrance was also a lovely find. Hugely walkable, just be aware it is up quite a few sets of stairs if you have any mobility issues at all.

A great place to stay in Catania
It was a wonderful stay. Nicola was very helpful and a gracious host. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing! There were so many items to choose from and everything was delicious. The breakfast was delivered to our room each morning! It is in a great location. We would highly recommend this place.

Dome Is Great!
Nicola, the owner, is fabulous. He generously answered all of our questions, arranged rides for us, oriented us to the city and generally became our friend. Our room was modern and spotless. It took us a while to realize that all power sources go off once you leave the room, so one must be prepared to plug in devices when in the room! The entire building has been built with sustainability in mind. The location is perfectly centered to the Duomo and fish market. We would absolutely recommend Dome!
