The customer service was excellent, and we were even greeted in our room after check-in with granita and brioches, a lovely treat. The location is terrific, within easy walking distance of all the main attractions of Palermo. The accommodations are very comfortable, although we did... More

Can't fault this hotel for a city hotel. It was very comfortable, the staff were great and right in the heart of the city so able to walk around comfortably.
