We booked this hotel which was located at least 1 km from the city center. No bus service and a narrow road to walk to town, which we had to walk daily to and from. Customer Service was terrible, wi-fi did not work and hotel rooms were basic, nothing nice at all. The hotel computer for public use did not... More

Dear Customer, we regret having to contradict his serious allegations: 1) Our Hotel is located 1 km from the center since 1989 2) The public bus stop is 250 meters from the Hotel 3) There are taxis, which she never wanted to call 4) The free Wi Fi works in the entire hotel and the PC of 'Hotel is every...

My partner and I are frequent world travelers, by plane, car, trains, sailing yachts and other ships. She always reminds me, that more important than a nice view from the window or access to cultural places is the quality of service, cleanliness and hospitality. The Gabbiano gets 9.5 out of 10 points from us. We arrived late in the evening... More

We did not have any reservations in Termini Imerese. A local photographer suggested a fairly priced clean hotel called II Gabbiano. Happily we took his suggestion. It is about 3/4 mile walk to the treno and the neighborhood is nothing to brag about but this hotel has wonderfully spacious rooms, superb restaurant and wonderful management. The owner was extremely helpful... More

Coming off the ferry in Palermo at 7.30pm, we needed one night's basic accomodation en route to Catania, then Malta. We chose this hotel because 1) It was outside Palermo on the way to Catania 2) It had locked parking (our car was full of stuff) and 3) It offered dinner. We prepaid €65 for a double room. Everything functioned.... More

This hotel is extremely overpriced. Furniture in the rooms could not be more basic or simple. All TV channels are in Italian. Breakfast room is very noisy. Lobby is tiny. Staff is unhelpful and can only speak Italian. It is impossible to walk to the hotel from Termini or the train station due to the lack of sidewalks in the... More

We are always sorry when a customer is not happy with the stay, but we feel it is incorrect to alter the reality: TV: Channel 12 is in French, the channel 13 is BBC English. The lobby area is 130 square meters, 24 rooms, totally proportionate Personal "unhelpful": 3 fluent in English 2 English and French .... The Hotel is... More

This hotel is extremely overpriced. It's located far from anything worthwhile. Otherwise it's adequate but it's location and Motel 6 atmosphere make it a no go.

We were traveling with 3 children, and the hotel offerered us an apartment, which was very spacious (2 very large rooms, with 2 single beds in each, and a large bathroom). Each room had powerful air conditioning and televisions. We were staying in Termini Imerese to be near the airport for our very early departure. At 5 am, it took... More

Very disappointing indeed. The only fact I agree with in other reviews is the cleanliness which was good. Location is very poor - to call itself in Termini Imerese was stretching it somewhat. It was in a very poor suburb beside a main railway line with frequent noisy trains, a very busy major road with beautiful views of the oil... More

We stayed at this place for one night. It was very quiet. The breakfast options were just right.

I especially recommend this hotel if you are picking a car up late at the airport and don't want to drive in Palermo, which is very wise. About 30 - 40 minutes from the airport and well signed from the autostrada. It is near the railway line and in a slightly run down suburb a little out of town so... More
