Stayed here for one night after flying into Catania late, before travelling on the next morning. The location is very convenient for the bus and train stations (although crossing the maze of roads to get there whilst trundling a suitcase was a bit hairy!). The neighbourhood is pretty scruffy but once inside Rigel Hotel everything positively gleams. A small hitch on check in was that the receptionist forgot to give us a card to work the lights in our room. Once that was sorted though we were very pleased with our triple room, decorated in blue with white-painted beams and a very smart bathroom. The air conditioning did an efficient job. The breakfat buffet was very good with plenty of sweet and savoury choices. We would happily have stayed here longer although it is quite a walk to the main sights of Catania.
