We enjoyed this comfortable hotel for 10 days in March. Room 220 was on the backside of the building and quiet from traffic but not hotel neighbors. The room was large and the king size bed nice. Less than ideal was the thermostat which seemed to be nonresponsive to any manipulation I made.  The shower was cramped but hot water... More

Only stayed one night in Palermo (as was our itinerary). We founds the rooms to be very clean. Beds comfortable with crisp linen and an extra pillow. The complimentary buffet breakfast was excellent. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Parking priced fairly, but found Wi-Fi to be quite expensive (I declined). We would definitely stay at Idea Hotel again... More

Idea hotel is located in Palermo city center. We had a room on the 3rd floor. Slept well for 3 nights during a tour with a group of 30 people. Mattress is good, window can be opened but then there is too much noise from the street. Did not have to use a.c. in the room. Buffet breakfast contains yogurt,... More

After our GPS failed to get us to our intended hotel, we ended up here for a night. The young man at the front desk was kind and helpful, recommending a good restaurant nearby and phoning our hotel in Monreale to explain our problem. The rooms were charmless but they had what they needed to be functional. The biggest issue... More

This low priced hotel is perfect for a short stop in Palermo. No frills but it is excellent value and has a surprisingly decent simple restaurant, and served until 9.30 at night. Rooms are a bit old fashioned but adequate for a short stay.

We've stayed there 2 nights - didnt really spend too much time in the hotel as we travelled around Palermo. It is a decent hotel for a good price (booked a week before arrival in mid-August). If you are lucky or if you ask, get a room that is not on the main road. The hotel is placed on the... More

This hotel is a one night perfect location. The reasons are as follows: 1) The location is very convenient, it is situated in one of the most important streets of the city of Palermo which is the continuation of the motorway from Catania and Messina. Across the street there is a bus stop (John Lennon Square!!!!). Bus number 102 will... More

Ok hotel in an awful location by a motorway, maybe 30 minutes walk from the city centre. Very friendly staff. The wi-fi was very expensive, 7euro. Rooms fairly average with the standard amenities - missed a waterboiler/coffe machine.

We stayed here for a weekend back in 2005. We went to Palermo just for a weekend and got a good deal on this place. It was adequate, a little out of the main town, well actually quite a long stroll, but to be fair we were happy for the walk. Hotel was clean and fairly modern, but if a... More

Excellent hotel with very good service, friendly and helpful staff, good amenities in the rooms and very good quality of bed-sheets and towels. However, it is in an awful posiiton on a major road (nearly motorway) in the suburbs of the city. One does not go to palermo to see traffic jams. A pity because the hotel in itself is... More
