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...

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,...

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...

If you like foul odors in the hallway and in your room, planes soaring overhead all day and night, bad food (hotel restaurant is your only choice, as it's remotely located near the airport), and a dirty run-down hotel room and bathroom, then this is the place for you. Otherwise, stay away! Disgusting.

We stayed in this hotel for one night on our arrival in Sicily. It was difficult to find even with the help of a good map that said we found the hotel was perfectly fine. The room was clean; the restaurant offered a good choice of food and the freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast was delicious. The staff were...

I've stayed in the hotel for four nights. I worked in a city 25km away so the location of the hotel was really good to get on a highway quickly. It's one of the few upsides of the location - other one is a close proximity of the airport Fontanarossa and a big shipping mall. There is a spacious parking...

My purpose in staying here was to avoid rushing to the hotel in the morning and risking getting stuck in a traffic jam on the autostrada. My goal was to stay someplace close to the airport so I could calmly get up, shower, have breakfast and then return my car before checking in for my flight. The hotel is very...
