I highly recommend this hotel! Service was wonderful and the hotel appears to have been recently renovated. Our room was a huge suite and very spacious...with a big bathroom and lots of closet space, too. (Lighting was a bit dim, but not an issue for us). We had great weather, so we walked around all day visiting the tourist attractions.... More

This hotel is really something special. And even though it was fully booked it was really not crowded. Mixed service as there was one lovely lady in the reception and one not so lovely. We really wanted to try this hotel so we bought the last room at a high price. And still we feel pleased. The best: The view... More

A great option in Palermo! Fantastic location for walking to the old town and waterfront. Can't say enough about the wonderful staff who helped me make a last minute change to my reservation without penalty. Comfortable rooms. Lovely breakfast area on the roof. Palermo was fascinating! Be sure to wander through even the most run-down areas of town, absolutely unbelievable-... More

I had a wonderful room at this hotel--large, clean, and quiet. The air-conditioning was a bit difficult to regulate, so I just shut it off at night rather than wake up frosty. The best part of this hotel is that there is a really nice, yet informal dining room on the rooftop with views of Palermo and the hills in... More

Dear Guest, I thank you very much for your nice review about your stay and our hotel. We gave the name " Hotel Porta Felice" because near us there is " Porta Felice " ; it means "door" because it was one of the big door for the entrance in the City of Palermo. The quarter is very old and... More

We got this hotel by our travel agency. It is not far from downtown of Palermo. If you come there with your car (only for those, who survive traffic there), first thing you discover - 4* hotel has no parking, you need to park on a narrow dirty street. In Palermo! Hotel alone is OK, the staff is very friendly... More

The hotel was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly. The best thing, however, was the terrace restaurant and bar. We tried a number of restaurants in the Kalsa area but always came back to the hotel restaurant- good food, great wine and efficient and helpful staff (especially Michele). Tea on the terrace was so very pleasant and calm after... More

A wonderful hotel to stay while you are traveling to Palermo. Excellent location, walking distance to all the attractions and good restaurants. The suit in the 3th floor we have stayed was very spacious, silent .Good breakfast' and finally the price was very attractive!

We stayed here in March for my husbands birthday. The suite was nice but I was disappointed by the lack of drinks making facilities in the room. The area is a bit away from the centre and we struggled to find good restaurants locally. I think this was a product of being there out of season. Happily the hotel restaurant... More

The rooms were very modern and the hotel overall was pretty quiet. The included breakfast on the top floor was great, best breakfast we've had at any hotel yet. The people at the front desk helped us with any questions we had and showed us where to go and how to get there.

The hotel was chosen for us as part of a package deal so weren't expecting anything special. Thus pleasantly surprised by the welcome. That is, very kind and helpful staff (particularly Gloria overseeing breakfast), managing a clean and comfortable hotel. We were given an upgrade to a superior room which was much appreciated and giving us extra space and a... More
