We stayed in Palermo for one day/night and were happy with our stay. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. They assisted us with finding parking for our rental car and taking our luggage up the stairs as there isn't a elevator. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and spacious enough for 2 people. The bathrooms were also a... More

Stayed here for 1 night in May with my parents - located in a rather sketchy part of town. It was hard to locate the hotel - the entrance is through a dirty alleyway. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious. The breakfast was very very average. The staff was kind and helpful. I had a problem whereby... More

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Columbia because of the very friendly staff, and the great location. The room was clean, and everything in working order. Breakfast was nothing special, but very acceptable. Via del Celso might look like a dodgy street, especially at night, but we had no troubles living there, and it is very close to Massimo... More

Almost all singles (except staff) in this hotel is about average 3 stars hotel, but total impression is high above average. Staff is excelent in every way. Cleanliness, location, correct brakfest and wi-fi giving a winning combination if you plan to visit "everything" in Palermo and have nice stay.

We've stayed here several times over many visits over many years, and are never disappointed. The rooms are clean, efficient, and as described. The location is good - close to amenities and convenient, but also safe and in an area with character and ambience. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful - and always available. And the breakfast is very... More

Great location for walking around the sites of Palermo. Hotel is beautifully clean, welcoming and with a secure entrance system for those that may be put off by the adjoining alleyway. The staff are excellent and could not be more helpful and friendly. The tour and taxi we booked via reception were also excellent in quality and service. We would... More

Hotel was very clean and the best part was the very friendly staff. Our first room was obnoxiously loud at night from the music on the next streets, but we were moved after we complained about not being able to sleep. The first room was very tiny, even by Italian standards. The shower was so small we had to step... More
