I agree, rooms were simply awful, especially if you live on one of the first 3 floors. But there are also many advantages of this hotel. For example the staff that was very likeable. The waiters were very nice and what is very important- they were fast (not like in other hotels in Sicily we stayed).The only problem was that they spoke italiano-english if I can call it like that (but who in Sicily spoke other language than italian? I guess not many people). I also liked the location of this hotel. Okay surroundings weren't marvellous, but the city centre was near, and dear Americans, at least you saw the real Palermo, not only wonderful rich places from the catalogue.
Oh and one more thing, food was very good, and mmm those croissants! I have never eaten such good croissants!
To sum up, I expected more from a 3 star hotel, but after staying at other hotels in Sicily (4 star ones) I was glad I came back to Ponte (I was on a trip around the island). Here the staff weren't rude and I felt like a guest not like an intruder.
