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

The hotel is not in downtown Palermo, but high above the city in a residential area with fantastic views. We first booked an in-town hotel, but after reading other reviews describing the city as "filthy" and "scary", we decided to stay outside and were very glad we did. Driving to the hotel from the airport in a rental car was... More

My husband has done a review below and I'm quite disgusted that they have basically said that we have lied! They seem to be missing the point - yes, we didn't miss out our flight (thank god), its that we were stressed out, they were very rude (to me personally) and that STILL we have yet to receive an apology....

We stayed here on out last night in Sicily as it reviewed well and we thought it was near the airport. Turned out to be a bad choice. Firstly the hotel is very isolated and the road leading to it is very narrow, windy and long. There is not much around it. Basically nothing in fact. Rooms were fine. Service... More

We are totally surprised and sorry to receive this comment, deliberately written with the intention to damage the image of our hotel. We are sure that it isn’t true that 40 minutes have passed to move your car. Every year we receive about a thousand guests provided with car and if only one guest has a bit delay the important...

This is a good place to stay. The view of Palermo is just amazing and the rooms are very good. However if what you want is to get to know the city this might not be the best choice. It is a bit unconfortable to arrive there by car, the hotel is located on a hill not too nice to... More

We stayed 2 nights, following ferry trip to Palermo from Genova, and couldn't believe that we'd chosen such a great hotel, thanks to tripadvisor! The hotel is a little way out of Palermo but the views, especially at night, were amazing, it was quiet, the room was clean, bed comfortable and the pools were lovely. Staff were very helpful and...

We would not have considered this hotel had we not reviewed Palermo hotels on TA. Yes it is a bit far out of town but location for us was perfect. After spending a busy week in Agrigento (our daughters Wedding celebrations) a couple of days of RR were just what the doctor ordered. The hotel is excellent, really loved it.... More
