We stayed here for a couple of nights and at first was greeted by a very friendly man (tall with glasses and always smiling). He was attentive to our questions and proactively looked to help out where possible. Unfortunately his good work was ruined by a bald shorter old man who I assume spends most of his spare time yelling... More

Once again I suggested this hotel to a visitor of my university (I live in Palermo, thus I have never been a guest of the hotel). As usual, I asked my guest how was his room and he was thoroghly satisfied. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room comfortable and clean, the price convenient and the position strategic. I...

I stayed here in November 2014 (and have stayed here often prior to that) to visit colleagues at the University of Palermo. This hotel provides great accommodation and is very conveniently situated. From the hotel one can easily access part of the university, both the train and bus stations, the sea and the botanical gardens. My room and bathroom were... More

What a find! A neat clean commodious small hotel, close to the city center, with free off-street parking! Friendly helpful staff, a very adequate breakfast, a modern elevator for us oldies with heavy bags, and a quiet comfortable, well-equipped room on level 3 overlooking the botanical gardens at a reasonable price. Would choose Villa Archirafi again in preference to fancier... More

This was the only hotel we could find from our Sicily book with a vacancy in an emergency, We approached it with a bit of trepidation because of its 2* rating. In fact it is perfectly clean, our room was large as was the bathroom and the shower, although a tiny capsule, was hot with copious water. It has good... More

I live in Palermo and I work very close to this hotel. That is why I take my colleagues here. But I have to say that they are always very happy with it. The position is strategic, close to the railway central station, the bus station, the botanical garden, Piazza Marina etc. They have small apartments for longer stay and... More

From the hotel to the central station of Palermo is only 10 minutes walk. But because is next to the botanical garden, it is very quiet too. The rooms are normal, the bathroom is ok. To visit Palermo this hotel is a very good place! The have their own parking before of the hotel.

Archirafi is close to the waterfront, by the Botanical Gardens in Eastern Palermo. It has car parking and is relatively easy to find. It's cheap and, because it's clean, the rooms are a good size, and the staff friendly, it's very good value. All the major sites are walkable, providing you are fairly energetic. It's on the tourist bus route... More

We stayed at this hotel only for one night. The location was good and at walking distance from the railway- and bus station. We had a room with a view to the Botanic Garden and we had a nice and quiet sleep. The room was ok but the floor was dusty, I think they just had forgotten to clean it.... More

Great service and clean rooms! Within walking distance to most attractions, Ballaro Market is 15 minutes walking up Lincoln street, Piazza Marina is 10 minutes away in downtown Palermo, bus station (Stazione Centrale) is 5 minutes walking up Lincoln street and for shops Roma Avenue and Vittorio Emanuele are a short walk away. If you go towards the sea, 5... More
