The people are very friendly and helpful, the food is excellent with a nice wine selection. The rooms are roomy, clean and nicely appointed. The view out to the Mediterranean is incredible. The only disadvantage is the location isolated on a steep hillside with narrow winding roads. There is no place to walk or hike and you don't want to walk on these roads. Any trip away from the hotel will require either a taxi or your own car. Taxi prices seemed very high to me. Too bad the hotel doesn't have a shuttle into town.

Crossroads between the tiny cities of Etna and the summit of the volcano. Surrounded by greenery, this hotel offers all the necessary comforts for a couple's, family's well-being. Nice staying, highly recommended. Will return for sure.

The location was great! It takes you only 15-20 minutes to arrive at the craters of Etna (Crateri Silvestri). The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. They gave us great tips for our trips. The wellness area was wonderful too and we spent a lot of time there. The rooms are good and facilities too. We definitively recommend you to stay there!

Except for a few individuals, the staff was unfriendly, especially at the spa, the reception, and the breakfast room. Every time we had to make a basic request , they gave us the impression that we were bothering them. Like asking for a freshly squeezed Orange juice, or for towels. The room (a suite) had no towels, and we had to ask twice to get them…We stayed there during the saint valentine and the spa was just unpractical since it was way too crowded. There were no beverages or fruits inside like you can find in most of the spas, and the staff was particularly unfriendly. During the evening, the music was so loud that we had the impression to sleep in a discotheque and when we asked until when they intended to play the lousy music, the answer was rude and just unacceptable. We understand the need to celebrate saint valentine with music to dance, but this should not happen at the cost of other guests‘s tranquility, and certainly not by justifying it in a rude way. .

Decent hotel, should be better cleaned though. Room a joke for a 4 star hotel. Bathroom tiny.
Restaurant horrible. Never mind what’s on the menu, they bring sth else. Dishes and glasses need to be better cleaned (stains, crusts etc.)

Perfect hotel with friendly staff and delicious breakfast. The garden and pool are fantastic and Mount Etna is nearby, so highly recommended for excursions. The view was beautiful from our room with large terrace. I can only recommend it.

The hotel is nice, beautiful location next to etna park and the staff are friendly. However what is the purpose of having an indoor pool and going with kids if under 5 cannot use it. If they are parent controlled. Otherwise can only thank them.

Response from Luca Trovato, Direttore generale at Airone Wellness Hotel
Responded Apr 8, 2024
Dear guest, I am Luca Trovato, the general director of the “Airone Sicily Hotels” company, as well as the hotel company that owns the Airone City Hotel, the Hellenia Yachting Hotel, and the Airone Wellness Hotel where he stayed. Responding personally to his review, because it is my habit to read the comments of our guests. First of all, I thank you both for choosing one of our hotels and for the time you took to describe your experience. I learned of your dissatisfaction regarding the fact that children under the age of 5 cannot access the swimming pool located within the WELLNESS area, but I would like to point out that this very important detail is communicated by us at the time of booking . It is therefore not a surprise for guests arriving at the hotel. Our hotel, being a hotel that caters to different types of customers, including families, iwhich gives the possibility of allowing even our youngest guests to access the SPA, however, we adopt limitations for their safety , and to let other guests enjoy a wellness program without being annoyed by noise, since it is still a relaxation area. This is why we allow children aged five years and older to access only accompanied by an adult, only in a specific time slot, and only in the heated pool area, as the other areas are inappropriate for their tender age. I therefore renew my regret for your inconvenience, which however leaves me surprised to read, given that it was communicated to you during the purchase phase. For anything in which I can be of use to you, I will be at your complete disposal. Best regards Luca Trovato General Manager Airone

An appealing building with comfortable rooms. A good location for visiting Mt. Etnea. The in hotel restaurant is decent. The views are nice and the pool is inviting. Our room had a nice size balcony overlooking the pool and the town of Zafferana below. Not much to see or do in town but there are a couple of decent restaurants. The staff was very helpful and always available.

We found this Hotel when we happened to drive through Zafferana Etnea and stop at the tourist bureau. I dont think they get too many tourists, as a local who was also visiting this Info bureau offered to drive us to our car, and then drive to the hotel to show us how to get there. We were touched by their generosity!

This Hotel is up the Hill form Zafferana Etna, and a little too far to walk into town, but perfect if you have a car. The hotel looks very swish, and they have certainly made an effort to make it like a very good 3 star hotel. Our room was enormous, we were upgraded for free into a suite with a huge balcony. The view was amazing, as it is on the foothills of Etna and you can see the sea in the distance.

There is a gym and a lovely swimming pool with an incredible view.

I highly recommend this hotel, and it was so nice to stay away from the main tourist trap.

I read the previous reviews of the Hotel Airone at Zafferana Etnea, near Catania, Sicily and didn't know what to expect. One review was glowing and the other did not like it at all. As I had chosen it for my honeymoon, I didn't want it to be a disaster.
In the end, I would say that the Hotel Airone is average, with some good elements and some bad.
Bay far the best thing about the hotel is the view, which on a clear day is absolutely stunning (make sure you get a room on the seaward side, preferably on the second floor). You can see all the way to mainland Italy and Taormina, and at night it is just as magical overlooking the local town. It is also very handy for Mount Etna, which is a short drive away (you can smell the steam and fumes from the hotel!).
The rooms are fairly good and large, but we had a problem that the air conditioning didn't work. We just had a fan moving the warm air around, and even that was after I had to ask reception to turn it on. The breakfasts were not very good, the coffee tasted burnt, the eggs had gone off and there were flies landing on the uncovered food (I tried covering it with napkins but the waiter kept removing them!).
A wedding was held in the hotel on the Saturday night and they let off fireworks right outside our room at 12.45am!
The swimming pool is very good indeed and there are other facilites like a gym, which we didin't get time to use.
The staff seemed a little 'cold' and there was quite a strange atmosphere in the hotel, certainly not exactly warm and welcoming. This was possibly because it was mostly empty when we stayed.
The hotel is high up on the hillside overlooking Zafferana Etnea. If you are reasonably fit it is about a 20 minute walk into the town at night (worth it) and a steep 30 minute walk back.
Basically, I think the hotel Airone was average and OK as a base for touring the east of Sicily. However, don't expect much luxury or personal attention.

È possibile portare un cagnolino
Answer from Luca T
Zafferana Etnea, Italy
Buon giorno , in hotel sono presenti varie tipologie di camere , le uniche che non hanno accesso interno sono le depandance - fronte hotel, infatti chi decide di acquistare tale tipologia di stanza a prezzi inferiori , dovrà attraversare il parcheggio per accedere nel corpo centrale dell'hotel e quindi utilizzare i servizi di ristorazione e spa. per quanto concerne gli spogliatoi si sono presenti zone interne dove possibile cambiare gli indumenti.
