Stayed here 3 nights, nice clean room, lovely towels & comfy bed but room looked out at bin shaft! Unbelievably noisy in the morning, dreadful slamming, banging at 6am!!!! No consideration by the staff for people sleeping. Was awake at 6.30am one morning to very loud smashing glass, slamming doors etc. When I looked to see where the noise came... More

We had a very small cramped dark room looking out over the bin shaft with a very poor shower. Very basic hotel with no pool or bath. Expensive bar, no outside space. The meals were set and it was waiter service. Very poor food and really no vegetarian options.

This place was awful. My husband and I were both covered in bug bites after sleeping there the first night, the wifi barely works, the walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbors' phone conversations and toilets flushing, the "hair dryer" was more of a vacuum shaped hose that did nothing, and the bed was SO uncomfortable. We... More

The desk staff are delightful. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The location is ideal. The room was smaller than I expected and the breakfast lacked some fruit but all in all I would highly recommend this hotel.

The room we stayed was OK - big, clean, comfortable. Though the view was not great and we got twin beds instead of a double (we were traveling as a couple), the overall experience was good. Breakfast for nice, service was good, and the location was just great - close to the main attractions of Palermo.

My husband and I are currently staying here as part of a 1.5 week journey through Sicily. The hotel is centrally located, clean, and the breakfast is great. The WiFi is spotty at best, and the air conditioning doesn't work properly. My husband asked the front desk 4 times to look at our AC unit - and each time we... More
