My wife and I stayed in Palermo at the end of our three week trip to Italy. The hotel's front entrance is on a back street. Not a problem for us because we were dropped off by a private car. The hotel offeres no parking for rental cars. Once again not a problem for us because of our private car. The lobby and check in was smooth. We booked a suite which was nice. Good bed, auir conditioning, chais, bath, etc. The breakfast is good and is served on a balcony overlooking a city block. It is nice to sit outside and enjoy your breakfast. We ate lunch there one day and the food was good and the view very nice. There are some old buildings in view from the deck and our waiter pointed out that they were old buildings bombed during world war two. I found that to be interesting. I realize that I am reviewing only this hotel but I will say this. This hotel would be great if it was anywhere other than Palermo. There is simply no reason for any tourist to be in Palermo. We were there solely to catch a flight back to Rome and then back to Alabama. Roll Tide.
