We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in March. For us the location of this hotel worked well. Although located a distance from some of the main attractions in Palermo, it is in a pleasant residential area and a short walk to high end shops, restaurants and cafes. We like to walk a lot so a 30min walk to... More

Located in the center city, the Hotel Principe di Villlfranca is fairly far from the old city. The room was decorated in a very modern style and was quite plain. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast was good as was the service. I liked the lobby area and downstairs room. The hotel was certainly fine... More

I spent 6 nights in nicely decorated junior suite, the king-size bed was very comfortable, particularly the air-condition was working very well and not too noisy! I liked coming back to my suite after being outside in Palermo where it was boiling hot. The staff is very friendly, they made quite an effort to cater for all my needs. Thanks... More

Earlier this month, my family and I came across this hotel in a rapid search to move hotels in Palermo after a horrible stay at another hotel. We were immediately warmly welcomed by one staff member named Angelo. He instantly booked my family and I three rooms for a two night stay. We moved in that afternoon and the rooms... More

We booked for two nights bed and breakfast before flying out of Palermo at the end of our trip around Sicily. The bed(room) was fine for a modern city centre hotel but the breakfast was very poor. When that's one of the two major elements of the service it's really not good enough. The hotel itself is smart, clean and... More

I arrived fairly late at night so my first impression was that it was extremely residential and I was doubting my choice of area. As I ventured out the next day I saw that a street or so away were a whole hub of cafes and restaurants which I found very appealing, so all was fine. You are literally a... More

Where do I begin? After an amazing stay in Rome then in Sorrento we just assumed the great hospitality would continue. Were we wrong. When our driver pulled up, we noticed a lot of graffiti along the street, so we weren't sure if we were in a safe area. Fortunately, when we walked around later that day we realized the... More

We picked this hotel as we wanted to stay in the city but away from the crowds. It was a good choice as the hotel is in the newer part of town which could be described as more residential. It's also near the premium shopping area. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful with good recommendations for restaurants and... More

Unprofessionally run, rather worn, small hotel located in a downtown business and residential area of Palermo. Only advantages of the property are the affordable rates and the location far from the beaten tourist paths. Service more or less inexistent, check-in took ages although we were the only guests at the front desk - the fact that we had booked two... More

The property that you define “worn” is described by the vast majority of our guests as a cosy and chic boutique hotel in one of the nicest neighborhoods of the city, where service is... More
