Just returned from a short vacation in Catania - stayed at the Idea Ognina hotel. It is a nice place, very conveniently located just behind a gas station (Agip), for those that rent a car (as I had), with free parking (also very important). Be ware, though, that the hotel is branded "Ognina" - written on the facade. No mentioning of the "Idea", so do not look for this name. Everybody in the neighborhood knows it as either "Ognina" or "Jolly" hotel, which, I understood, was an older name. Otherwise the room was very clean, the service absolutely OK, generous breakfast, large LCD in the room with free access to the SKY satellite network (except, of course, for the pay-per-view movies). Overall it was a pleasant experience staying there and I would definitely recommend it for travelers that do not want to be in the crowded center of Catania, have a car and will not mind making the trip of about 6-7 km from the hotel to the center of the city. Not to forget - there is no supermarket nearby (or at least I did not find it), but there is a McDonald's restaurant fairly close.
