This nice hotel is very centrally located. But it's hard to find if you're driving, partially because of the narrow, often one-way streets in this part of the city center, with sometimes impossible turns. Rooms 105 and 106 are a total turn-off: they are adjacent to the front-desk and all the sounds made in that central area of the hotel... More

We stayed for 1 night, having arrived on a flight into Palermo at 8:30 PM on a Saturday. We took the bus to the train station (easy enough and just EUR 6.20 pp) and walked the kilometre to the hotel. I had ensured I'd downloaded the Google map of the area to my phone, else we would never have found... More

Have chosen this hotel for two times already. Located in the center of Palermo, everything is near, all historical places, churches, markets, restaurants etc. Hotel is always clean and very friendly. The alternative of breakfast meal could be bigger and not the same every day. Still the food is fresh and good. Hope to come back again some day!

Fantastic value - a generous and very clean room, most friendly and welcoming staff with a good choice for breakfast included. We arrived late at night - at that time, the approach to the hotel felt a little shady - but on reflection, that is probably true of anywhere just off the main streets in Palermo. Not far from the...

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...
