I just received the pictures back from our stay including a very beautiful sunset and the cat family who were all very cute, well behaved and added to the atmosphere. The sunset was taken from the 3rd floor end of corridor balcony and illustrates how beautiful the surroundings are in bella Sicilia. As stated in the initial review, I cannot recommend this hotel enough and look forward to staying again.

There were some bad reviews, but we chose to book anyhow, which we absolutely regretted. Our room was not cleaned at all, so they gave us another one. The new room was made up, but disgustingly dirty: the window could not be closed and there were stains and hair on the sheets of the bed. This hotel is a no go an should absolutely be avoided. We did cancel our room and went to a different place, because we were so disgusted be this hotel. This was our first bad experience in Sicily and know one should have to make the same.

Rooms were clean if a bit basic... small fridge, local (Italian) tv, but no coffee or kettle in room. There is a nice restaurant, with good food, a bar in the lobby that has very good coffees, and a very nice looking pool (empty when I was there) and sitting area around the pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free wifi (internet) was very very slow with much of the time not able to connect or have connect many time as it would drop quickly, if you need internet access, may be a problem. As far as things around is just off a main hi-way with a short drive to Catania and a couple of shopping centres, there is a gas station in walking distance, that has a nice selection of goods and a good deli in it....

Friendly staff. The property is dated and in need of some renovation. Big rooms, cavernous hallways, but the climate leads to mold in the bathrooms. Good restaurant that was busy with plenty of locals. Convenient to the airport.

IF you can stand the following then this is the hotel for your: Hearing every single plane that lands in the airport close by The funny smell in the hotel Hearing every time someone walks, closes a door and talks in the corridor Hearing every single thing being said from outside the window Having the lousiest breakfast ever - not even the bread was fresh! And the coffee is bad!!! Never expected that in a country that forms part of Italy. The TV doesn't work well, not sure why it's there The place is just ugly. So old. Where there isn't carpet the floor is sticky. I wouldn't say the place is clean. There are black spots (hopefully not mould, though probably is) on the bathroom ceiling. Honestly, the only advantages are that it is close to the airport and Ikea.

This hotel is very dated and worn out. Service isn't bad, but it needs a more modern makeover. WiFi is spotty and slow in the rooms, and the beds are not terrifically comfortable. You could do worse, but you could also do a lot better.

OK, it's close to the airport and litterally ON the highway system. And, I must admit, I was almost surprised by relatively good food in the restaurant (mostly because my expectations were low, I guess). That's it. The rest is poor. The rooms were modern and fresh in the early 80s, the "styling" gives you nightmares, half of the staff seemed almost hostile, the bathroom was in shambles. But if you enjoy a lot of people hanging about in the parking area, giving you the eye, be my guest!

My husband and I chose Il Gelso Bianco for an inexpensive hotel with proximity to the highway. We had NO idea that we would have so much fun here! The rooms are really nice and clean, and they have a pool and tennis courts on site, with free equipment for you to use! We woke up, had a nice coffee, and played tennis before setting off on our road trip. The planes fly very low over this place, but you could not hear them at all from inside the rooms. The parking was secure and plentiful, and the staff was very friendly, even drawing us a detailed map so that we could get to the nearby shopping mall with ease. I would not hesitate to stay here again! Also: the WiFi in our room was VERY good.

We used this hotel as an airport stopover and it was adequate. Room, although sparsely furnished, was spacious and clean. Bed was large and comfortable. Yes, it's under the flightpath, but we were not disturbed and its proximity to the airport was the reason we chose it. Breakfast was pretty poor, though, and the place is certainly looking tired. We had a hire car and were in central Catania in 20 min and enjoyed a truly lovely meal at Locanda Cerami. So, it served its purpose for us, and it's pretty cheap, but you would not want to linger, despite the huge swimming pool.
