Catania International Airport Hotel
Ranked #18 of 49 Hotels in Catania
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We weren't expecting much from this hotel as we arranged to stay there only for its close proximity to the Catania airport. As we approached the hotel, we were dismayed by the somewhat run down industrial neighborhood. The hotel itself, though, was very nice. The lobby is bright and modern. The rooms are very spacious, modern, spotlessly clean with large bathrooms. A particular surprise was the restaurant, which served excellent Italian/Sicilian food.

Stayed here on the way from the airport and one night on the way back too. Nice reception area, nice spacious rooms and very clean.
The food was terrible in the restaurant so bad point there. Eat elsewhere. Didn't bother with breakfast as I assumed it was equally as poor. The rooms were of good quality with free wifi also. Stayed here as an alternative to Romano palace which we were booked in to and of left. This hotel was about €110 on the way put and paid €140 walk in on the way back but worth it by comparison to the Romano palace.

This is a great option if you are flying in late or leaving early from Catania. The hotel is new and the rooms very spacious. It is set rather alarmingly in a run-down industrial area but is very close to the airport. They have a shuttle but be prepared to wait for them to come get you (they come to the departures level). I waited 30 minutes. It was very efficiently run apart from the fact that the reception was understaffed on my arrival so I had to wait 10 minutes to check in. All the staff I had contact with were very friendly, and when I was the last diner in the restaurant at 11pm (their closing time) they didn't make me feel rushed or unwelcome. I'd definitely stay there again.

If you need a hotel close to the airport, this cannot be beaten. Its new and of a very good standard. Our room was large, airy and well equipped. The airport is a few minutes away by car and a local bar a few minutes away by foot. Otherwise, the surroundings are bleak but for a late evening arrival its was perfect.

We were coming from Taormina and took the bus to Catania Airport instead of Catania and got a taxi to this hotel as it was late, it cost 15 Euro for the taxi which is ridiculous considering how close it is but there is no way to walk it as there are no sidewalks. I would recommend staying here if you have a morning or early afternoon flight and don't want to deal with transport the next day. The shuttle to the airport is free and easy to get from the front desk.. it makes up for the 15 Euro taxi. This hotel is very nice and clean, it just has no personality and the rooms are actually too big unless you have a whole family staying in one. It does the trick though, showers are nice, just bring your own snacks/food as there is no where around. Breakfast is pretty good.

Room Tip: Rooms are huge, so if you are a family…stay in one! we booked just a regular room and had a double b...

New hotel, large room.luxury features for a good price.
We could use the shuttle to get to the city center as well as the airport, that was nice.
Problem with the shuttle: Their estimated time to pick us up was off by 20 minutes. That would be no problem if they mentioned it .
