We stayed in this hotel for three nights. It is well located back from the busy main streets of Palermo, but within easy walking distance. The renovations have successfully retained the feel of a grand, central bank, with large public spaces, such as the central atrium, and marble stairways between the floors, as well as the modern elevators. The room was not large, but had everything we needed, except for wifi, but this was available in the central areas on the reception level. The only downside was the stiff and somewhat unfriendly service in the restaurant on the only night that we ate there. On the other hand, breakfast was more than adequate with a good selection of food. Would stay there again.
