The hotel's location is perfect for visiting Palermo's sights, and our room at the rear of the hotel was quiet and very comfortable (the best bed of the trip!). We asked at 10:30pm for extra pillows, but were told we would need to ask again the next morning, but this wasn't a major issue. Breakfast was generous with a lovely... More

Modern hotel with large rooms. Very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast included and served in upper room with nice views of city. We had an early appointment one day and they were ready for us before the advertised start time of 7 AM. Location was convenient to the main part of the city with many restaurants nearby. Wi-fi available but weak... More

We spent many hours pouring over reviews for Palermo hotels before deciding on Porta Felice. What a great decision, what a great hotel. First, the staff was more than accommodating, they couldn't have been nicer: calling us cabs, helping us read maps and navigate the city, making calls for us to help with some tour plans we had. The room... More

The hotel was located near the waterfront restaurants, which was perfect for our stay. The hotel was very modern and boasted a bigger shower and more powerful hairdryer than any other spot in Italy where we stayed. You had the option of the excellent AC or opening the windows. The hotel restaurant had a hot and cold breakfast with the... More

We stayed here at the tail end of Italy trip and couldnt have been happier with the accommodations and customer service. I was especially impressed with the customer service. I decided as an act of rebellion to leave my laptop at home when I travelled to Italy. My laptop was my constant work companion and very rarely left my side.... More

Pros: Lovely big rooms, well air-conditioned. Huge bathrooms with all amenities you might need. Really delicious breakfast buffet - hot food (eggs, bacon) as well as your usual continental fare. Truly delicious selection of tempting cakes too. Okay coffee and tea, if from a Nescafé machine (this seems odd in Palermo, which has absolutely NO chain coffee outlets). Really friendly... More

Don't get scared about all those reviews about crazy Palermo drivers and one way streets. They're the same as everywhere else in Italy. Go anyway, use your GPS, and stay in this sweet, well decorated and modern hotel, located in exactly the right place: in the old part of town. It has a spa with all sorts of services, a... More

This is a truly lovely hotel. Big spacious room, great decor and ambience and well thought through. Right at the bottom of the centro storico by the port its good if you like walking to see the sights, and shopping. Twenty/thirty minutes leisurely walk to cathedral. Some good restaurants nearby in corso vittorio emmanuelle. A lovely old building in via... More

Overall, we had a great week's stay at the Hotel Porta Felice. Staff of the hotel were all very friendly and helpful to any queries / questions that we had. The reception desk was very helpful upon arrival and we actually ended up with an 'upgraded room' which was a happy surprise. Room needless to say was fantastic. Large bedroom... More

My husband and I stayed, only one night, and really enjoyed this hotel. We had arrived, after a couple of nights in Paris in a small hotel room, to a large room with a very comfy king size bed and large bathroom. We had drinks before dinner in the restaurant and then a wonderful meal of seafood risotto! The hotel... More
