Hotel is situated close to the bus station and railway station, so for me it was perfect not to walk far as I arrived with the bus and had to leave with the bus for the airport next morning. The road outside is noisy but there are double windows in the hotel room, so I did not have any problems...

I had previously stayed at this hotel a few years ago and glad to say that it's still good value for money with a very central location offering easy access to the centre and the transport system. The staff are very welcoming and it wasn't an issue to provide us with breakfast earlier than usual.

Hotel is on his route 457 from the Airport and costs 3 euros. It is 7 stops along at the main his and train station. When you get of the bus, with the station behind you the hotel is at 11 o clock, across the roundabout. Nice clean rooms and an ok breakfast make this an ideal stop over. We...

Central , but do not expect a good sleep. Double glazing windows really bad. Expect sounds of traffic 7 am to wake you. Breakfast ok for price. Staff very polite. Overall, B.Flat. F 7 We would not stay again.

Stayed one night when we flew into Catania airport.Chose this hotel for close proximity to bus station.The room was spacious and extremely clean and very quiet considering being on a main road.The breakfast was well stocked with parma ham ,eggs and cheeses but only found instant coffee.Excellent location for continuing our journey around sicily by bus.

Stayed here for one night after flying into Catania late, before travelling on the next morning. The location is very convenient for the bus and train stations (although crossing the maze of roads to get there whilst trundling a suitcase was a bit hairy!). The neighbourhood is pretty scruffy but once inside Rigel Hotel everything positively gleams. A small hitch...

I chose this hotel because it is close to the bus station. I travelled by bus from Palermo and the bus station was located just 5 minutes from the hotel. You can travel to Siracusa and Taormina by bus easily. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. The local attractions are also within walking distance. The airport shuttle is just...

We booked this hotel because of the location (we had an early start to the airport ). The hotel is clean and modern etc but I must say that it was also the the most impersonal hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff on reception were unsmiling and didn't exactly give us a warm welcome, we felt we were...

Located 5 mins walk from train station. Close to airport shuttle drop off ( AMT bus # 457. Turn right out of arrivals and walk 100 m), also close to other bus services. Friendly reception staff who speak enough English. Smart, clean room. Adequate breakfast choice. Good choice of eateries close by. Try the trattoria approx 100m up the road....

Everything looks new and modern, it is centrally located, a stone's throw away from the Stazione Centrale. Good value for money.
