The room was beautiful and we had a very nice bed. The bathroom was also nice but the shower was extremely tricky to turn on. I can't even tell you how I finally managed to pull up on a tiny metal knob with wet fingers. The location was great esp. since we arrived ahead of others on our tour and... More

I had trouble choosing between ratings as this hotel was certainly better than average, but not by a whole lot. The location is good for visiting the historic sites of Palermo, rooms are larger than average and well appointed, and the breakfast is plentiful and served in a lovely room. On the other hand, the bar has very limited hours... More

Palazzo Sitano is near the end of via Vittorio Emanuele where the gate opens to the waterfront and port filled with boats. It is also across from one entrance to the Mercato Vucceria. Although the entry room is small, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. We had a balcony room of the 4th floor overlooking the small road opening... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here at the end of September for 7 nights. The location was great and staff were really helpful and polite. There is a bit of noise from church bells in the morning and music at night on the weekends but it's a city centre hotel, its to be expected to some degree. With restaurants and... More

I'm in agreement with other reviewers that this hotel is just average and provides a so-so breakfast. We were there with a small tour group, and were told by the tour director his company has not been happy with any of the downtown Palermo hotels it has tried. Evidently getting good staff is a problem in the city.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a Titan tour on a breakfast only basis. The hotel has modern decoration in an old building, sited in a busy and lively area of Palermo. Our room at the rear avoided the street noise but had no view other than a nearby wall. It was very convenient for nearby restaurants and... More

Nice clean room, friendly staff in hotel. Breakfast is only till 10 a.m. which is too early for night birds. You can bring night life of Palermo in your room cause music from the street is loud but that's the spirit of town!

After travelling from Australia and arriving very tired, the welcome was very poor. It was like guests are a burden that staff have to bear. It didn't improve over the 2 days we were there. The breakfast was one of the poorest I have ever seen. For a 4 star hotel, it just didn't cut it. They would do well... More
