When we arrived, we were informed that the air conditioning was broken. They were decent enough to let us cancel without penalty, but we would have been better to email us ahead of time with an alert.

good points: * the location for me, but for other people may be not; however, not too far from the city center and the harbour and the station. * you can ask (and receive) rooms with view over the sea, the boats... very nice; the rooms are big enough and the beds are ok. The isolation is excellent. * really... More

The Murano chandelier in the entrance hall is a real beauty and so are the little touches of other Murano glass in the rooms. This is not a pretentious hotel but it has the best to offer, an amazing feeling of space and a view on the strait which can't be beaten. It was such a pleasure to see the... More

...in every way. You are welcomes to a dated hotel that is ridden with fruit flies, a musty odor, stale cigarette smoke, inadequate light, painfully tiny elevators, old and oddly stained rooms, and the list goes on. I'd rate this hotel 2-star at the verrrry best. I am not a hotel snob but a value shopper. I found home-run quality... More

We arrived, but never unpacked our bags. Changed our plans and drove back to Palermo/Monreale to the Genoardo (where we had previously been for 5 wonderful nights). The Jolly charged us for one night only. Our original reservation was for 3 nights. The Jolly was dingy and smelled like dirt. As far as the view from the hotel, we saw... More

15/20 minutes walk from the coach/bus/train stations - directly alongside the port/harbour - water taxis/small ferries and cruiseships. Busy roads on both sides of the hotel with tram line. We had a room facing the harbour, and it was very pleasant watching all the activity, including locals fishing. Hotel staff were friendly enough, but did not speak English and wanted... More
