OttoMood Ala Ovest Catania Centro is a bed and breakfast in a twentieth century historical palace in the center of Catania. It located in a wonderful position because is a few steps from Giardino Bellini, Via Etna and Viale XX Settembre, famous for its palaces Art Nouveau. The palace has been completely renovated, with the aim of preserve the original style of the building, with a touch of modernity that is typical of "OttoMood". Everything has been studied and planned to offer our guests maximum comfort and environmentally sustainable. In the palace there is a lift, and also stairs made in Carrara marble and in the inner side of the building, there is a covered outdoor terrace, a relaxing area equipped with sofa, tables and coffee machine. Although all the rooms are non-smoking, smokers can smoke in this area. Our B&B uses energy-saving lights, home automation, natural materials, and solar energy, reducing the impact of its activities on the environment.

We finally managed to travel after an absence of 18 months. Obviously we returned to Sicily as this has become our second home. Sometimes we stay at the Ottomood apartments in Via Caronda which are most comfortable apart from being super central. This time we stayed at the Ottomood B and B in Via XX Settembre which is just a corner up from the above mentioned apartment. We stayed in a wonderful suite of rooms. Very spacious, superbly decorated and very clean. Rebella the hostess is so lovely and so welcoming and made our stay a lovely much needed one! We always recommend Ottomood to everyone as they are very consistent and have never let us down. We shall be back hopefully very soon 👍

The hotel is nicely located to explore Catania. The staff is very friendly specially Ribella, she even brought some kids books for our little one! The breakfast is quite varied and the freshly squeezed orange juice is delicious.

Great base with which to explore Catania, Taormina and Etna. Great breakfast with tea or coffee, cereals, toast, juices, croissants cheeses and cakes. Room had all we needed and borrowed an iron as my clothes were creased. Accessible as the bus we took from the airport and back stopped a 2 min walk away,handy! We also took a bus to Taormina which was a 15 min walk away as was the centre of town just walk along Via Etna. They helped us book our 4x4 trip to Etna which picked and dropped us back from the B&B. The lady also suggested a street nearby for local restaurants which was great. My one small concern when we arrived in Catania was graffiti everywhere and we thought about safety but we were two girls and had no problems whatsoever out late on our own and everyone was very friendly and family orientated, no trouble whatsoever.
