My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night with my parents. It's a lovely hotel, excellent staff and a wonderful breakfast. There was some live music outside the hotel until about 1 a.m. which was a bit of a nuisance but the area is well known for being a bit noisy, so 1 a.m. isn't too bad... More

Rather good hotel on the very edge of Borgo Vecchio: it is up to you if you consider it a positive feature ;-) 7 stories building of strange shape that defined also the shape of the rooms with nothing special to mention. Breakfast good, with fresh coffee and squeezed orange juice on demand. Beware: you are in a quarter that... More

The Vecchio Borgo was booked for us by the civic group sponsoring our business trip. The two nights we spent here were comfortable and the breakfast was generous and tasty. Our room had a balcony, tiny, but with an interesting view of the neighborhood and the mountains. We had no issues with the cleanliness of the hotel. Transportation was provided... More

This hotel was a delight. A small friendly hotel with good sized rooms, nicely decorated with free wifi. Breakfast was varied and the staff were very pleasant and willing to help. The immediate area was very "local" and we were able to buy basic essentials on our doorstep. We were able to walk to access to all the sights, via... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and the rooms were lovely, a bit quirky ,not bland like many hotels. I loved the shutters , the arched cupboards and the fabric up the wall. The breakfast was a standard buffet style, good choice and enjoyable... The scrambled eggs were particularly good. The staff were really friendly especially at the front desk.... More

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
