Close to airport!

Great hotel for a night before an early filght. Right off the highway, not even a 10 minute drive to the airport!

Rented a car so it was a nice place to get around from. Not sure how convenient it is otherwise. Helpful staff, nice coffee selection in the morning.

Located about 10 minutes drive away from Catania, so you will probably need a car if you want to visit the city. The hotel is in a good condition but it feels a little dated. The pool was clean and thankfully not very busy.

Convient to the airport

The hotel location is convient to the airport. Finding the hotel was a little difficult. Some of the hotel road signs seemed to send us off course. The hotel is a good choice if you have an early morning flight.

Cheap hotel, nice pool

Posted Aug 23, 2013
Its a good hotel that is located in the freeway 10 mins away by car from Catania, 40 mins away from Taormina and Siracusa. This hotel is perfect if you need a middle point to visit a few cities. It has a little market a block away and a gas station. The pool was perfect for relaxing after a long walk in the city. The rooms are goid with a/c and lots of channels (mostly italian). 5 min drive is a huge shopping mall with lots of brands stores and restaurants (zara, tommy hillfuger, h&m) Check in was fast and we had no noise at night. The only bad thing was the breakfast! Very poor breakfast choices. Overall i recommend it if you have a car and want to visit around the coast line withouth changing hotels on every city!

Great place to stay if you have an early flight. Not much around it in walking distance, but good restaurant on site.

Nice but hard to find. Here's how.

Posted Apr 30, 2012 on Hotels
This is an hotel located in a service area, and it is very difficult to find. See below for help. The hotel itself is very nice, with a good restaurant, and a large pool. There really is nothing around the area. The service area is Il Gelso Bianco, and there is north side and a south side one. Coming from the east on A-19, heading west, exit SLOWLY into Il Gelso Bianco North, and keep hard to your right, hard, hard, hard. DO NOT FOLLOW the signs for autos into the service area!! Stay hard right. You will see the sign to the hotel, and the hotel. Coming west on A-19, heading east, exit SLOWLY into Il Gelso Bianco South, and keep hard to your right, hard, hard, so you go around behind the service area and along a road until you can turn left through a little underpass and go uphill to the hotel. DO NOT FOLLOW the signs for autos into the service area!!

Didn't find the hotel using the GPS, but saw it from the highway. Convenient for airport escape. English speaking front desk clerk.

perfect for early next morning flight out of CTA

Good value. Clean rooms. Very close to airport. Right off autostrada Palermo-Catania without audible street noise. Would def stay here again if I had an early morning flight out of Catania.
