The only plus is the proximity to the train and bus station. Located next to the market, you will hear loud music and party nights of weird crashes from inside the house somewhere ... On the first night at 21:00 when going around a walk, wrapped up neck gold neck chain Torino street corner. Thieves drove a motorbike. Take warning... More

My comment will not add too much to the previous ones. The location of the hotel is fine, but it is in a so much crowdy and noisy place! The sound isolation in the hotel is very pure, so you hear everything what happen outside. There is a market and disco,this place is actively noisy 24 hours per day, especially... More

We live in the room that was closest to the market. Having noises coming from the outside all the way till early morning, I really couldn't sleep well. I came with my husband, specifying we want a double room, a matrimonial bed, realizing the owner was only willing to give us a twin room, 2 seperate beds. He wasn't very... More

Hotel has good location - not far from the train station as well as city center. It's not noisy hotel which is not typical for 2-star for such small money. Rabbit is nice and quite unusual pet. But there are some issues: 1. Receptionist does not speak English good enough. 2. Air conditioner makes loud noise which made impossible its... More

We were a bunch of 11 people, 9 students + 2 adults staying in the hotel for a complete week. We were warmly welcome, very friendly managers and always willing to help you. The hotel is situated in the heart of Palermo which is just optimal. We all felt very secure in this place, although we've been told that the... More

I came downstairs to reception on our first morning to find my husband playing soccer with Pepito, the proprietor's pet rabbit, and that immediately went on the mental list of 'things I shall never see again.' Cuteness aside, we liked the hotel very much and would certainly stay there again. Our room was on the top floor and had a... More

We spent four nights at the hotel. The staff at this family-run hotel is very nice and helpful (and we loved their pet rabbit!). The rooms are simple but very clean; the bathroom was a bit small, but it was definitely nice to have a balcony. And the location couldn't be better: right at the beginning of the Ballarò market,...

This hotel is a lovely place to stay. It has a great roof garden for sun and relaxing. The hotel is in a good location and it's nice to be to close to the local market.

We stayed for 3 nights. Very clean and and good value for money hotel. We looked for a cheap but charming family accomodation in the historic center, with private parking (garage). We were afraid because of "the stories" about dangerous and not safest neighborhood. That's why we booked garage. But we didin' t had any problems at all. I even... More

Very nice& cheap as for Sicily prices, hotel indeed, I have no bad comment, but there is one very unpleasant thing: we left our car in front of the building, Palermo nad its center where hotel is located is extremely difficult to drive and park due traffic, narrows street, so moving there is very hard.
