We stayed at the Hotel Porta Felice in Palermo in October 2014 as part of our two week trip to Italy. The hotel is located very close to the "La Kalsa" district in Palermo, which is part of a more hipster and edgy part of time - if you are looking for a hotel in the touristy part of time... More

My daughter and I stayed here for three nights and I really can't speak highly enough of it. Even before our arrival they had arranged a transfer from the airport for us which went very smoothly. Our room was lovely, not a suite but still a very good sized room with a queen bed which was one of the best... More

On October 13th my husband and I checked in Porta Felice. We asked if they have a parking where we can leave our car until the 15th, day that we will check out. The answer we got was that the hotel didn't have a parking, but they used to work with a company of their entire confidence; we have only... More

Stayed for two nights at the end of our Sicily trip and what a great ending! Fantastic hotel. Modern and the room well designed. We got an upgrade when we arrived and had a suite. It was beautiful. Even on the road, we were NOT disturbed by traffic noises, as it is situated on a side street. Used the wellness... More

We stayed here twice at the beginning and end of a week in Sicily. The first room that we had was quite luxurious and very quiet. However on our second stay we got a very small room with banging and scraping of furniture overhead. Not relaxing at all. Don't stay in room 305! Other rooms may be better.

The hotel was very clean and breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was great. I would not stay here again due to the horrible location and very noisy street. Although located in back lane, it is very noisy with vehicles and motorbikes. Also had issues when we decided to shorten our stay, not as much to do in Palermo as we... More

Having previously read a few reviews about this hotel, I have to agree with most of what has been written. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the receptionist on duty who promptly and without having to ask, upgraded us to a very nice suite, which although it faced the street was not unduly noisy. The suite consisted of two... More

I had read that this hotel was very good, but in a rather scary area. Can confirm the former - it is a lovely hotel. we stayed in a superior room and it was a large, beautifully appointed, well furnished room, with very comfortable bed. Breakfast (and dinner), which was taken on the top (fourth) floor of the hotel, with... More

A charming hotel ... with friendly and efficient service. We were amazed at the size of our room (a deluxe double) with equally spacious marble bathroom! We were at the front of the hotel so tended to get a bit of street noise (but not unexpected in Italy) but could shut this out with shutters and air con. The roof... More

We, my husband and my parents - all veteran travelers, enjoyed our 4-night stay here. We liked being in a quiet part of town and there were plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were nice, the staff all friendly, helpful and responsive. Breakfast on the roof was a lovely way to start each day. An Italian friend... More
