“Excellent location for Etna.”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

This hotel is a little drive up from the town of Zafferana Etnea.
It has a lovely pool with splendid views.
The hotel was very clean and the staff were polite.

On our first night there was a problem with the AC in the hotel which meant we had to try and sleep through what sounded likle a waterfall. This was resolved the next day.

We were told at check in that if there was a Wedding at the hotel (of which there is many i think) that you needed to be away from the pool area between 1 and 5, so get your sunbathing done in the morning or you could be disappointed.

On our first night we decided to visit the hotel restaurant. This was a big mistake and proved to be our most expensive and least enjoyable meals of the fortnight in malta, sicily and gozo. The food was terrible.

The staff and the beautiful facility made this a fantastic home for us for 2 nights. It is so easy to climb Mt Etna and return to this hotel for a relaxing evening at the wellness center and a wonderful dinner in their restuarant. The attention to design in the hotel
gives it an elegant but not overstated aura --- you don't feel like you are staying at a cookie cutter hotel yet this hotel has high standards. The view from the balcony is fantastic and the outdoor pool is also very attractive. We live in McLean, Va but have hopes to return to this hotel again!

We have just had our sixth visit to this hotel. The staff, the room, the atmosphere and above all the leisure centre is next to none. We wil return very soon and hope we will have the same suite. Many thanks to the staff especially Davide. Keep up the good work.

Yes, I loved my stay at the Airone Hotel. My room was in the annex, on the second floor and the view was stunning. I was able to see the sunrise a few times and it is really one of the most beautiful moment I've lived in my whole life. It was very quiet and only the night before we left did we hear the good time a group was having in the gazebo.
The food was good and we became friends with the servers. Even though it is always difficult when you deal with a group, they were pleasant and to my knowledge, responded well to the needs of the clients with special diets requirements.
We were a group of choristers on tour and we had to rehearse. We were allowed to do so in the dining room where there was a nice piano. Apparently, it did not disturb the clients. On the contrary, there came in to hear us!
We had a concert every second day and it allowed us to visit when we had a day off. Zafferana was a good starting point for the Etna, for Syracusa etc... We were away from the big city noise and at the same time, it was not far from the touristic places we wanted to visit : Taormina, Acireale, Riposto, Catania etc...
Definitely, I want to go back and in the same room.

This was my first, but hopefully not last, trip to Sicily. Loved the hotel -- the rooms had lots of character and were spotless. The staff was amazing -- very attentive and went beyond in many instances, by assisting with our inquiries and needs. the food in the hotel dining room was delicious and very plentiful. Such wonderful grounds and pool, also. And, just an energetic walk (hills!) into the village. I would not hesitate to stay at Hotel Airone again.

what can I say, we all want to go back. being one of the members in charge of the group, we had so much help from the employees and they were just great. the place is amazing with the view, the pool, the spa. We had 5 concerts in Catania and we were able to ajust our schedules with the dining room, (thank you Davide and Salvatore) and also very easy to get help from the front desk (thank you Mario, Viviana and Marilena). We all had such a good time. the food was great. (thank you Chef Mario) and the serve fast and great.
The breakfast buffet style, always ready for our creazy hours. thank you Sonia.
the night clerk always waiting for us after our concerts around 3am and always ready to serve us our last expresso. thank you Pipo.
we all mist you and thank you for your great work. i love you all. Claudia

was part of a walking group
the hotel is pleasant and aI found the room in the annex clean and comfortable with a good view from the balcony
I thought the food was good though some in the group were not as keen
I can see why some reviews are negative re the wedding parties and perhaps best then avoid a stay over the weekend
the hotel is 20 mins walk from the town and is a way from other areas and not well served by public transport
overall I would recomend the hotel but be aware that it is not easy to get to other places but is well served for walking on etna

oh - some solar panels would be a good idea to heat the pool that is fabulous apart from being very cold!!
