If you prefer your hotels with history and character rather than bland uniformity, this hotel is a great choice. An original palazzo, used over the years as a film and fashion shoot set, you can feel the atmosphere as soon as you walk into the courtyard. Our room overlooked the courtyard and had a private bathroom so I think it... More

This hotel is charming with a long history and close to the train station&bus terminal ,but on the very noisy ,even more at night, street. There was some episodes in this hotel. A very elderly grandmother in the front could not hear the door bell sound . So I could't enter the room for a 15 minutes. And unwashed fruits... More

We have just spent 3 nights in Room 4. We took notice of the concerns about street noise and as our room overlooked the courtyard we had no problems at all. A little chaotic at check in, though we did arrive from the airport (a really easy bus ride away) at just gone midday. All was resolved quickly. Room a... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel located very closely to the train station and to the historical neighbor. Don't expect a fashionable place, with all the modern comfort. It is simple and a little bit laid back, but clean and so charming that we did not regret our choice a second. It is also cheap (50 euros per night... More

My friend and I stayed here for a week whilst exploring Palermo and surrounds. It's a great place, close to central station and bus links as well as the buzzing bars and restaurants for the evenings. Rooms are basic but adequate.

We chose this B&B because it was in walking distance to the railway station. We arrived in the evening. We booked through hotels.com however on arrival our booking could not be found. At the end everything worked out however the welcome wasn't a pleasant experience.

We stayed for 2 nights at the start of a Sicily trip, arriving on 28th August. The building is extraordinary and the hotel itself is set within a former palace, occupying part of the second floor. You enter for the first time by way of the large street entrance door and thereafter walk through a big courtyard (with obligatory cats... More

This beautiful old hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the bus and train station, a beautiful courtyard and grand marble staircases await you when you walk through the enormous wooden entrance door. We stayed in two different rooms, the biggest room with a massive balcony and en-suite bathroom, and a smaller but just as beautifully decorated room... More

Very good location, nice people, clean room and quiet. Look forward to come back! It is not recommended to get on street after eleven, but it was perfectly ok too. It looks a bit scary, but an army and police is driving around the neighborhood all the time.

I've been here maybe three times now, and this hotel is as good as ever - great location near the train station and not far from the centre, good fairly basic rooms in a historic palazzo with aircon, telly, nice dark-wood furniture, high ceilings, sympathetic colours on the walls. We didn't have time for breakfast but I sneaked a peak... More
