Hotel Orleans is a fairly difficult place to get to. I used the taxi (and got ripped off), the bus (and was pick-pocketed).. Fortunately the subway worked OK for me and once a kind Palermo person showed me how to use the ticketing system it worked fine. Unfortunately the hotel is not manned for most of the day, which is...

The hotel is cca. 20 min. away from the main station, a little bit tough to find, but nice for the price. There was no staff to receive us so they told us through intercom that we take the key to our room ourselves. The room was average, averagely clean but they left the window open and a looot of...

Very nice, comfortable,clean and friendly B&B. Easy to get to from the airport. Metro to Orleans, and it is about 5 mins walk away. We both loved the area, very working class. workshops cutting glass for doors and windows,and family life on the street. Staff were waiting for us as we had told them what time we would arrive, daytime... More

The rooms are big and the hotel is absolutely comfortable. The staff makes you feel like you're at home, Carmelo is fantastic! The neigborhood is not nice, but Palermo is just like that, and if you're looking for an acommodation near the university, Hotel Orleans it's probably the best choice. Of course I cannot forget mentioning the coffee: it's italian!!!

Hotel Orleans in Palermo is an absolute dump. The staff are rude, incompetent and cannot string a sentence together in English. From the moment I arrived I was treated with contempt and as though my business was simply not good enough. Wifi is weak, breakfast was stale and when I asked for a taxi for an early morning flight, they... More

This lovely little hotel is a little way away from the centre and the station, hidden down a little backstreet but inside is a little gem. The bed and room was nice and big and clean. The breakfast selection was lovely but the second morning a few of the staff had a bit of an argument inside in Italian. The... More

The hotel is really nice and well worth the price: big rooms, quiet, clean, excellent breakfast (real coffee, fruit juice, fruits, cheese and ham...) but if you stay several nights, you might be tired of walking there and back to the city center, crossing the same dodgy and filthy areas (it's funny the first time).

Despite my glowing comments about Hotel Orleans in the past...it is time for a retraction, after having stayed there on two further occasions. Staff under-attendance...slow, drop-out internet facilities...and small, traffic-noisy rooms that directly front the footpath, tipped me over. On my first stay, my room, it now seems, was a self contained unit suitable for a night manager...but since, I... More

I travelled solo to Palermo, Hotel Orleans is literally a stones throw away from Orleans Station in Palermo. Hotel Orleans is a nice hotel, has everything you need but the best part is the helpful staff, the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. My room was a single and next to the road, you could hear... More

Palermo is full of character, by which we mean it is by turns dirty, noisy and fascinating. The hotel, as other reviewers have stated, is on a little street near the university and the hospital (you can hear the ambulances arrive throughout the day, but they were surprisingly not intrusive at night). Don't be put off on approach to the... More
