The room: clean, very comfortable kingsize bed, pillow service, enough electricity sockets (staff has adaptor on loan if needed), super shower (with tropical shower head) in tub, dvd player, quiet airco. Really, all the comforts you need. We only had some trouble with the wifi in our room, but it was always available in the reception area. We had garden view, nice and quiet.
The hotel: beautiful contemporary design, 12 rooms only, so quiet and personal, friendly staff that speak English well, amazing breakfast with good juice, home-made bread, cakes and granola and eggs that can be ordered any style. Jacuzzi and sauna on top floor.
The location: tree-filled, bit bohemian style Palermo, what a difference from the busy city centre. Means a bit of travelling during the day, Subte (metro) is about 8 blocks away. But at night you're surrounded by the best restaurants within walking distance. We really preferred it like this.
