The hotel is pretty average, but very clean and offers a good location - about a 10 min walk to Teatro Massimo. The entrance to the building of the hotel is quite scary, but hotel lobby (at the 5th floor of the building) looks much more welcoming, so don't be scared! We were in a hurry for the bus so... More

Hotel is located in the center of Palermo. Room are nice an clean. Nothing special but enough for regular stay. We have paid for 4 people room 86 Euro including parking place and breakfast. I can easily recommend Hotel Elite. We found especially great breakfast served in the hotel.

Very conveniently located in the centre of Palermo and so easy to get to from either of the airports (Trapani or Palermo). We travelled from Palermo airport taking the airport bus, it costs €6.10 for a single ticket which you can buy from the kiosk next to the bus stop, which as you exit arrivals turn right and walk along...

This is quite the opposite of many London hotels who boast a splendid entrance and lobby but have minuscule rooms: the entrance here is shabby and makes you feel that you must be in the wrong place, but once arrived in the fifth flour (the elevator works quite well), you are welcomed by friendly, English-speaking staff in a very nice...

Those are the things that make this place good. The hotel is located inside what seems to be an appartment building, in the center of Palermo. Everything is walking distance. Like a lot of parts of Palermo the hotel seems to be a bit old, but it is very clean and the rooms are nice and big. We stayed there... More

Dear Mindaugas, thank you to consider us an oasis of peace!

Good hotel for the price. Good service. Central location, walking distance to interesting places. Not the best breakfast..you have to be there really early in the morning, around 8 to catch up the good things. Doesn't have a nice view. The elevators are old and frightened me, but you can use the stairs. Parking is not good either, because you... More
