I stayed here recently for two nights last week. The location was excellent but close to many cafes that get busy into the late hours every night of the week (or so it seemed) with raucous groups. Given this info, I highly recommend getting a courtyard or back-facing room. I had read on TripAdvisor reviews of people who could not sleep because of the noise.
The positive is there are many good restaurants and sites within walking distance of the hotel. Palermo is a great city!
You do have to be a bit on guard. I would not recommend driving in Palermo or parking at all. I overheard another guest complaining to the front desk about his rental car being broken into.
The room we had was large enough and in good condition with nice furniture and finishings. The marble bathroom was very nice and has a large glass enclosed shower with a rain shower head.
My biggest complaint about this hotel is the terrible wifi. It constantly comes and goes and was nonexistent in our room. When I complained to the front desk, they said none of the back-facing rooms get the wifi signal. This should have been disclosed to us before or at the check-in! We were told the large number of guests online at once makes the wifi bad. They should just invest in a better system.
The breakfast left much to be desired -- very mediocre food and terrible coffee (Nescafe machine).
I wouldn't stay here again given the wifi/breakfast. If you don't care much about either of these, then I would recommend staying here.
