Hello This hotel seemed well on the website. It is yet well located but unfortunately for us was not available (on works). The people speak only Italian so it was a bit difficult to understand we had to go to another hotel for the next night and a third one for the 2 other nights. Bad experience even if the... More

Location - close to city center but a 'ghetto' location. Just in front of the hotel is an evening meeting place of youngsters so expect VERY loud music till early morning. Not very safe at night. Hotel- a good 2 star B&B hotel, clean but definitely not 4 stars (no restaurant, pool etc) just basic stuff. Palermo- super dirty, harbor... More

My family and I stayed at the hotel during June 2014. We have two young children for anyone in a similar position. Our time at the hotel was very pleasant. Although the area surrounding the hotel may be considered by some as as a little lively at night, we were not put off. We felt safe at all times. Even... More

We booked for 3 nights and checked out after 1. The room was poorly maintained with old,dilapidated furniture. Not very clean and seemed much smaller than the quoted 23 meters. Breakfast was terrible. Tasteless food in edible fruit and railway standard coffee from the 60's. The street outside was seedy and felt dangerous at night. Only redeeming feature was the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Vecchio Borgo for two nights and we would definitely recommend it to others and stay there when we return to Palermo. It's centrally located and a quick walk to Teatro Politeama and Teatro Massimo. The breakfast was delicious and they offered quite a bit of variety. Also, the staff was always very... More

I spent a happy week at this hotel. Before I travelled I emailed to ask about the shuttle bus from the airport. I got a very quick reply with details of cost and which stop is nearest the hotel. Staff were always helpful and spoke good English. Buffet breakfast was included in cost of room and gave a good choice... More

We spent four days at Vecchio Borgo. The location is not so close to Palermo's main attractions, but is a good & quiet neighborhood. We have chosen this hotel because of its good quality-price equation, and the room pictures. We were not dissapointed at all. Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Plenty of space. The bathroom was equally good.... More

It was near to the center and to the pub area. For Sicily I would even say it was quiet! The bathroom and a specially the shower booth were not clean and full of mold! And I am talking about that easy to clean mold directly on the walls! Bottom line 75€ to much for 60€ ok!

Very nice hotel but with no bar and no restaurant. The neighborhood is somewhat dubious which is why the front door of the hotel is always locked. So the hotel itself is OK but do not expect to get a free parking space.
