This is a great hotel in the old part of Palermo. Service was excellent, and the location, very near a stop for the free tourist bus, was ideal. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the breakfast was ample and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

Really enjoyed the nearby restaurants...great gelato place within close walking distance. Skip the food at the hotel-- cappuccino out so machine! In Italy! Bit of a walk to city center, no parking. The room is clean but the hotel can be difficult to find if driving. Expect the taxi to the airport to be at least 50 dollars

Premium room was spacious with a firm bed and pillows to our liking. Nice breakfast area on 4th floor which is also a bar / restaurant in the evening. Rated a 4 star property. Room rates are...

I was genuinely disappointed by my stay at Porta Felice. I had repeated issues with their Wi-Fi and worst of all the room was not that clean. When I came in, I saw strands of hair and some weird substance in the shower. There was a mustiness in my room and there was a hole in my chair. They removed...

The hotel is ideally located for access to the sights. A number are within easy walking distance and there is a free shuttle bus at the end of the road to take you up to the Royal Palace and the top of the city. It is very close to the promenade, where there is a great gelateria - so an...
