I had a very nice stay in this hotel. Very nice location, good Hotel, good cost. I would be back again. They have free wifi and it works inside the Room. Breakfast is good but you need to call the waitress all the time for replacement. Very good breakfast though.

Five Cool Rooms is worth only by the location: core of Palermo Soho! But surely you can find better options. Lousy customer service and the rooms aren't the best cleaners in the world! The idea is very good, it seems that whoever masterminded took great care to detail but was lost with time...

It's located where everything is happening, so it's an excellent hub to hang out. The service is very friendly, and it's true that the rooms could be better decorated, but the beds are good and bathrooms look very nice. You can tell some nice design details (like the bottles of shampoo) here and there. It has a decent breakfast and... More

It's hard to review this hotel. The location is amazing and staff is super friendly. Your close to amazing shopping and restaurants. The common lounge area was perfect for hanging out and the breakfast was good. However I agree with all the previous reviews on the room situation. OUr room was super small and we didn't have much room for... More

We spent 4 nights in the Hotel. It is a great location and the general area has great amenities within minutes. The staff were helpful and spoke good English. However, the room was dirty, drab and needs to be redecorated. It gave a very poor first impression. Breakfast and the hot tub on the roof were reasonable. The wifi was... More

It might not look like the amazing shots on its website but that should dissapoint you. Situated in the hip area of Palermo Soho it doesnt get any better in terms of location. Go for the larger rooms as the basic very small and the price difference is negligable.

I spent 2 nights here and it's right in the centre of where you want to be staying. You couldn't be more in the thick of the action in Palermo Soho. The room's are fine, although I couldn't get the heating to the right level, and they feel very average in terms of 'that luxury feeling'. However, the price is... More

Five Cool Rooms won't blow you away with grandeur and luxury but it's clean, easy and in a great spot to enjoy Palermo's shops and restaurants. The rooms are small but comfortable and the staff are generally friendly and helpful, plus the hot tub on the roof is a nice touch and a good place to unwind with a beer.

We walked past the door, twice, before finding the anonymous entrance. Nice common areas, specially the roof area for breakfast with the small pool. The room had a strong smell and was rather small and not that pleasant. Hotel service was ok, until we asked them to arrange a taxi to the airport. We got a private driver, even though... More

Little places llike this always come with trade-offs. I happen to love the trade-offs of this one. If location is your thing, grab this one. Walk out the door and Soho awaits. If safety and feeling secure is your thing, ditto. If common areas are your thing, ditto. The first floor has a reading room and a huge courtyard with... More
