I decided to choose this hotel because of the reviews commending the incredible views, and I was not disappointed. However, the pool and the jacuzzi (the jacuzzi where the views are most incredible) closed at 8 pm, before it even was dark, so we were not able to relax and enjoy the views as I had hoped. The hotel is... More

We stayed at this hotel for one week. The receptionists were very friendly and always welcomed us with happy faces. The only minus about the reception was that you have to leave your carkey as the they had limited parking place and maxed it up, so every time we left the hotel we have to wait to get our key...

"We're gonna end up sleeping in the car". That was the thought running through my head as we drove endlessly around the deserted streets of Palermo in our rental car, desperately searching for a familiar road sign or an English speaking local with accurate directional sense. Definitely not a great start to a supposedly relaxing holiday. Just as midnight was... More

We spent 18 nights at this hotel and found it a very relaxing place to escape to from the heat and madness that can be Palermo. We stayed on the second floor with a balcony (lifts to all floors) overlooking the pool which in turn overlooked the city from up in the hills. There is a large breakfast room but... More

The hotel location is excellent if you enjoy scenic views, but not so easy to reach from the city. Fortunately, hotel provides shuttle service from the closest bus stop. Hotel was clean, comfortable and with amazing views. Unfortunately too cold to try out the pool. The otherwise pleasant stay was disturbed by the receptionist who was demanding to keep our... More

This hotel is situated on a high hill over Palermo, thus having exquisite views over the city and over the sea, probably from every room, because they all have nice and pretty big balconies towards the sea/city. The room was comfortable and big, the bathroom as well, with bathtub, shower and bidet. Good working WiFi and helpful staff. Great coffee... More

We stayed in Bel 3 for 5 days and it was not enough!!!! Initially we wanted to stay in a centre of Palermo but we chose this hotel after reading reviews about stunning views of Palermo from windows of Bel 3. And we weren't disappointed!!! It is a bit far from the airport and centre of Palermo, that is true.... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night only & it was okay, nothing too fancy. Views at night are lovely however. The man on reception wasnt very helpful, we felt it was a chore for him to even greet us. The woman was very helpful the next day & told us which bus to take. We paid 35euros for... More

As others have said, the hotel is not located downtown. However, the views at night and at breakfast on the terrace are worth travelling a little further for! Rooms are adequate, but not luxurious. Room terraces are splendid. A higgledy-piggledy hotel with floors numbered in reverse order as the hotel spills down the hill. The restaurant is obliging and house... More

disapointment? location is not nice for those willing to visit palermo. You need a car and you have to drive the winging roads carefully to reach the hotel. And it's not close by the airport, count 25 to 40 min. Other than that, a very good hotel. Free parking, nice pool, a restaurant/pizzeria (we did not try it) great view... More
