Good convenient hotel for Catania
Comfortable hotel in central location about 100m from the airport shuttle bus stop Venga .( Alibus runs every 15 minutes to/from airport 4euro). The restaurant is very nice with good choice for evening meals and breakfast is very good. The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. I will use again and can recommend.
