My purpose in staying here was to avoid rushing to the hotel in the morning and risking getting stuck in a traffic jam on the autostrada. My goal was to stay someplace close to the airport so I could calmly get up, shower, have breakfast and then return my car before checking in for my flight. The hotel is very...

I went with a group of coworkers on a business trip where we worked in Sigonella in October 2012. This hotel was chosen for it's close location to Sigonella. I would look elsewhere before staying here again. The hotel has not been updated in years and clearly reflects it. The hotel's construction and door assemblies make the hotel VERY loud...

The hotel is basic, not very expensive and near the airport of Catania. The only problem is that you have to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel. So it makes the price much higher for a nights stay: 30-35 euro for a taxiride from the airport. Nice swimmingpool, but you don't need it if you'll only be...

Average English speaking tired business hotel. Main asset is that it is close to the airport, with a convenient gas station at the entrance for refueling the rental car. Restaurant is very bland, zero atmosphere, ok food. Room was ok, good a/c, breakfast minimal. Would stay again if flying out early from Catania, otherwise not a great choice for vacationing.

This hotel is good if you have an early flight out of Catania, otherwise I would not stay here. The hotel is in need of an upgrade since it is a bit run down. The food was very good and dining area nice. Staff spoke English. It's value is only its location.
