About Us

Habitat Home is an ambitious project of Habitat Hotel Group by two young Sicilian architects. Habitat looks at the renovation of old Mediterranean spaces located within their cultural and historical contexts.

Renovation and history are keen at Habitat Home where the Mediterranean landscape and the old walls of the building made with lava stone and bricks are highlighted inside the apartments, creating a continuum between external and internal spaces.

The guests of this property have access to the courtyards and to the reception, where they can either enjoy a moment of relax among citrus plants and aromatic plants or drink a cup of tea with a good architecture magazine.

The neighborhood

The central location of Habitat Home will allow you to have a great experience of downtown Catania and visit the historical city center just simply by strolling around. HH is located in one of the oldest districts of Catania, between the Ursino Castle, an imposing medieval castle founded by Frederick II in the thirteenth century, and the "fish market", peculiar for the fisherman and the daily fresh fish, but also for local fruits and vegetables, cheese and meet. Here, in the middle Ages there was the Jewish neighborhood called “Judeca Sutana" where it seems there was already a fish market. In fact, Gisira Street comes from the Islamic term jizya, the tax paid for the freedom of worship. The fish with its colors captures the visitors and creates a magic and picturesque atmosphere, where time seems to stand still at a pace and uses of a distant past. HH is also walking distance from other points of interest of the historical center such as Piazza Duomo, University Square, Teatro Massimo, the Greek-Roman Theatre, the Achille’s Baths, to name a few, and from the lively nightlife of Catania, with its pubs, restaurants and clubs.
