Located near a major city street, this hotel serves as a convenient base to tour a large part of Palermo, especially some of the city's more exciting sights.The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel area is quiet, allowing undisturbed sleep and rest. Room service is superb; beds are made up promptly each day and the rooms are kept... More

We are in Palermo for a week for a business conference. Were booked into this hotel based on website descriptions. Unfortunately, there is no "rooftop terrace dining".as claimed. Our Junior Suite for which we paid extra only had two small windows that looked onto an alley. There was no terrace as described. Hard beds, hard pillows, very uncomfortable sleeping. The... More

While traveling in Italy Palermo was first stop. We found hotel a perfect location in a frantic chaotic city. DO NOT DRIVE IN PALERMO UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Worst driving experience in my entire life. Very dangerous. Hotel recommended by our travel company. On a quiet side street. Large rooms in classic decor. Bathrooms large. Reserve rooms at end of halls.......... More

Comfy, classy hotel located perfectly. Rooms spacious, bathrooms big as well. Found the bed to be a bit hard not very comfortable. Wifi came and went but was working for most of our stay. Overall a good stay.

This hotel has been my base for more than a year when I worked in Palermo. It's a classic structure in the historical centre, comfortable and nice. There's a little gym and a spa with sauna. The restaurant is very good, expecially for fish.

We landed in this hotel in July 2013. We knew Palermo and had stayed before in historic Grand Hotel Et des Palmes during a happy-go-lucky trip. This time around we were orderly travelling with friends on organized trip basis. We took the "meals included" option, which always throws you in the hands of the unknown. Most of the time, without... More

The hotel is in excellent location, with spacious rooms, decent bathroom, nice interior, etc. All pretty well except few issues. First, we had reservation for 3 rooms for 4 people. I'm not sure how they did it, but they completely messed names with rooms, even if those were written black on white on the reservation. Second, they started to insist... More

Just spent a week B & B in this hotel and we were very happy with our room which had a balcony. It had everything that you would expect a 4 Star hotel to have. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly and helpful. Location is perfect for exploring the city. We used the busses all the time to get... More

If you are not used to Italian traffic and if you don't your way around Palermo this hotel is not very easy to reach by car. Narrow one-way streets everywhere and A LOT of traffic. After circling the neighborhood a while we managed to find the hotel. Once there we did not need the car. The hotel is well situated... More

We stayed here for 4 nights prior to moving on to Taormina. The hotel is very well located although the actual street is a bit untidy. However, from here you can easily walk to bars, restaurants, tourist bus and various historic attractions. Palermo itself caught me by surprise as for some reason I expected it to be a bit run...
