The staff of this hotel is fantastic, I cannot complement them more. They were extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. They even let us out of our reservation 1 day early without any consequence. The location is also good, perfect for catching public transportation and plenty of restaurants in walking distance of the hotel. But the fact is the hotel is... More

We arrived by car and had to stop a few times to ask directions as it is quite hard to find. We ending up calling the hotel for directions - but still got lost! We managed to park in a nearby parking area that was free. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. There seemed to only ever be one... More

First impression of the outside were a bit worrying as facade and area were scruffy. Once inside we found everything to be clean, comfortable and the staff to be friendly and efficient. Hotel centrally positioned with restaurants, shops and bus and train stations all close by. Plenty of local street food available in the alleys and piazzas, all within walking... More

Ideally situated in old town Palermo, a 20 minute walk from the station and very close to most of the sites of interest and many good restaurants. Very helpful staff, a good breakfast and a clean,comfortable room. We occasionally had problems with wi-fi and the street leading to the hotel was a bit scruffy, but overall our stay was very...

We didn't experience any of the noise issues that others have mentioned, so I assume that we had a room on the quite side of the hotel. We found the staff to be very friendly and willing to assist. Our room was a decent size with effective air conditioning and a good sized bathroom. We did however experience a couple... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel and was by car. Make sure you have a navigator in order to find the hotel: palermo is a busy city with many one way streets, and you need a very narrow one to reach the hotel. The hotel has a deal with a parking place about 300m from the hotel, which closes... More

This hotel is in a side street near the QuatroCanti crossroads and so is excellently placed for sightseeing. We arrived on Tuesday and left Friday morning. While we were there it was very quiet. The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.

This place is up a filthy smelly alleyway, allthough the staff on the desk are good and helpful, the place needs a serious makeover, bathrooms, plumbing and fittings all past the used by date. Housekeeping is very bad, shower etc filthy. Room 102 is a no go if you want to actually sleep due to all night rave club at... More

Erica V, Direttore generale at Hotel Columbia Palermo, responded to this review

Dear Guest I think your review has been dictated by not being able to be moved to another room, which we would have done but having learned the last day unfortunately it was impossible, I was assigned a room on the first floor to prevent you from doing other plans. Discriminate all the staff who every day tries its best... More

The staff were particularly good, making every effort to understand my needs and help out. My first room was noisy and they changed it for me. This was very important for me. Breakfasts were excellent. Simple but fresh and appetizing. The hotel is very clean too. The air conditioning was quiet and efficient. I felt at home in the hotel,... More
