We provide awesomness!
Our life journey
The history of City Lounge Bed and Breakfast starts on 2007, where the long-time traveller Claudia Zerbini from Bologna, settles in Catania in 2007, after been working in London and Downunder, in the tourism industry. After a full renovation of a huge and old apartment, the City Lounge, well managed by Claudia and her helps, starts achieving a great response by the public.
The warm atmosphere, the rooms sizes, the assistance given by the personnel and the fantastic seasonal breakfasts, reaches the heart of people and we receive the certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor and Booking.com until 2014 for the genuine welcome showing passion for this job with the aim to make the guests feel a homey taste and receive a “tailored” assistance to facilitate the visit of this beautiful baroque town, on feet of the highest volcano in Europe. Like a rough diamond initially, keeping growing up from its ashes, with its thousend mediteranean hidden facets.
At the end of the year, Claudia closes down the activity for a while, for familiar reasons and finally joins the enthusiastic Marsiglia Family that meets up with Claudia's ideas, to grow up a new “nest” in town, finally ready for October 2015.
This completely new-built Rooms and Breakfast of Charme, Casa Provenza Rooms, is in the very best location in Catania city centre, daily low-traffic and pedestrian area, enriched by the best services you could ask for an optimal stay quality.
Casa Provenza Rooms, jest steps from Piazza Università, offers what the responsible tourist and businessman requires : functional comfort in the most central part of Catania, accurate cleaning, peaceful sleep with hypoallergenic bedding and stunning views from the 4th floor, served by lift.
Our standard of “Quality and Hospitality” aims to the guest satisfaction of “told and untold” requests of the Client, according to our welcoming best traditions, fundamental in the sicilian culture.
The homey feeling is much helped by the caring services and real comfort, due from the surrounding quiet area and alchemic colour harmony from the interior and external furnishing, from the professional staff attention with an authentic empathy.
Direct on the city baroque district, nowhere else will be closer to the Cathedral and several museums, the shopping in Via Etnea with its hystorical markets, and the renowned “movida area” around the Theatre Bellini, with its magic scenary, good for classical or alternative taste.
These places have kept their charm, unique and so peculiar !
