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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

The best thing about this hotel is the wonderful service. The man at the front desk was extremely helpful in every way. The room was very clean and adequate. If you come with a car parking is difficult as the garage they recommend is not terribly convenient. We were fortunate to find on-street parking with no mishap to the car.

I cannot rate this hotel highly enough for their service, assistance and care throughout a terrible ordeal that was happening to my family.

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... More
