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. I have stayed here several times and Giuseppe at the front desk has been unfailingly friendly and courteous. It is just what you need in a sometimes difficult... More

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.

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

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... More

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.
