A nice modern hotel, close to the railway station, but a longish walk from the centre of the old city. The rooms are very clean and well-appointed. Breakfast is a bit limited. Helpful staff on reception.

Just over 60 euro a night for a spacious room, comfy bed, good shower. Overlooked street but fine at night and a little balcony to step onto and act like a local. Breakfast is basic but at that price that's fair enough. Friendly receptionists. Area a bit down at heel, but I think you'd have to go looking for any...

This is a very nice hotel. The people at the front desk are very helpful in recommending restaurants and guiding you around the city. The Room was clean and comfortable. And it was about 3 blocks from the train/bus station. Easy walking distance. The staff was flexible on my checkout time and after I checked out I could sit in...

Clean and spacious room. Comfortable and quiet . Very helpful staff.I had problems with mobile phone not working and they couldn't do enough to help. Great location for bus or train station for onward journey and easy to find from airport as airport bus stops very close by outside train station. Breakfast more than adequate.

We were in 4 day mini vacation in Sicily on August 2016. The hotel is quite basic but rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were really kind and help full in every situations. Some of the reception staff were hardly able to communicate in English but despite that we manage to always have the help we needed. All in...

Looking for a one-nigth-stay in Catania we dropped on this rather small and unremarkable hotel in the evening and were happy to get a quite cheap and convenient room on the second floor with view on the street. The room was nice and well equipped, but alas with one small pivot-hung window only which could hardly be opened, thus not...

The Rigel hotel is ideally placed for people that don't like the hustle and bustle of a loud city. The train and inter city bus station are only a stone throw away and in the vicinity are a couple of great trattorias and shops which are very competitively priced. It's good for relaxation and the rooms are above average. Also...

This hotel is perfectly located for visitors arriving by bus or train. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Its unique feature is the pleasant and helpful attitude of the management.

Clean, Quiet, good breakfast and great front desk. I took a lot of day trips from Catania, and this hotel was a real gem. If I had not booked my last days in Catania before I would have stayed all 6 days there.
