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.

Room tip: Ask for highest floor,busy road so less noise

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 on check in was that the receptionist forgot to give us a card to work the lights in our room. Once that was sorted though we were very pleased with our triple room, decorated in blue with white-painted beams and a very smart bathroom. The air conditioning did an efficient job. The breakfat buffet was very good with plenty of sweet and savoury choices. We would happily have stayed here longer although it is quite a walk to the main sights of Catania.

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 opposite the street, very convenient indeed.

The hotel is clean and tidy. Facilities are in good order and modern. Free wifi provided. TV and beds are nice and comfortable. Good breakfast served. Though it is a bit expensive, the location and convenience would make you find it worthwhile. I would definitely recommend it to travellers who would like to use Catania as a base to travel around.

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 an inconvience to them - the cheek of us wanting to check-in!! I would not stay here again and the buses to the airport are unreliable, the staff told us they were every 20 mintues but we waited nearly an hour! I

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. Excellent and good value.
Recommend a visit to Le chiminere 10 mins walk away. Located there is a fabulous museum displaying a comprehensive mix of information and equipment from the Sicily landings in 1943. It's called Museo storico dello sbarco in scillia 1943.
Hotel 20 mins stroll to city centre.
Would be my first choice if ever return.
