“great, comfortable stay in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We took two double rooms for 3 nights. Helpful staff. Pleasant place for breakfast on the last floor. Nice choice for breakfast, fresh food. Very comfortable beds. Clean, quite spacious rooms. Bathroom with bidet. I would chose exactly same hotel if I go second time :)

The hotel is small and friendly. The staff are nice and helpful.
Location is great and you can walk anywhere. We had a car and it was easy to find parking in the area. You can manage with a car in Palermo even though some say you can't.
The room was large and comfortable.

Myself and my boyfriend really enjoyed our few days in this hotel. Location is perfect - walking distance to all the sightseeing. Room was amazingly decorated and really big. Bed was enormous and very comfortable. Breakfasts were really tasty, typical choice of swedish table. Staff that is working over there treated us as if we were in a 5 star hotel ! Very enjoyable stay.

The room was very big and comfortable, the room service was delicious, the service was very warm. I would definitely come back. We arrived late in the evening and the hotel went out of their way to make our stay (with an 8-month-old baby) very relaxing.

Staff is helpful and friendly but not assertive at all. Rooms are spacious and decorated with taste. The best part was to have your glass of wine on the rooftop terrace under lemon trees. Breakfast was also exeptional

We stayed for two nights at the Hotel Porta Felice and it met or exceeded every one of my expectations. They are absolutely deserving of the five star review. The staff is welcoming, friendly and extremely accommodating. Roof garden breakfast was not only scenic but quite good. Other than that, the decor was gorgeous and the room was very clean. Try the spa as well....it is really a dream time to visit this spa and you will leave feeling totally refreshed..... enjoy your stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Recently stayed here for 4 nights. The facilities of the hotel are very good, although I did not realise that there is a charge of 15 euro per person to use the spa facilities for 1 hour. This came as a bit a shock. The breakfast is ok - but not the best ever. The restaurant food is excellent but a little overpriced - if you go to the local piazza (5 minutes walk) you will find a selection of excellent restaurants where you can enjoy an equally good meal for 20 euro less per couple. The service that the staff provide is excellent however, and they gave perfect directions on how to find the buses we needed for our day trips. The hotel being located about 10 minute walk out of the main city.
