The hotel might benefit of a deep refurbishment indeed. Better insulation from street's noise, individual management of heating/cooling as priority. Then said that, it is still comfortable for sleeping and the staff professional behaviour truly pushed me to score the fourth star in this review. From my standpoint plus are: + logistics (perfect from/to airport by bus; everything is then...

Likes: I got a very good deal on this hotel for 6 nights with breakfast. 1. Its in a great location in Palermo, away from the downtown but close enough to walk to Quatro Canti. Seems like all the buses you ever needed to take to get anywhere crossed near the hotel, the airport, downtown, the harbour, Independence Square (Palace...

The location is perfect, facing the beautiful Politeama theatre and square. The staff, very professional, attentive, cheerful and helpful. The service overall is very good. The room and interior is gorgeous, very nice and classy. When we arrived a basket of fruits and a fine bottle of chilled Prossecco were waiting for us on the house. The breakfast was generally...

During this trip, we visited London, Palermo, Catanya and Paris. This hotel was the best deal for the money and more comfortable than some of the $800 per night hotels we stayed in. Extremely polite and friendly staff and the breakfast, which is free, is good enough to cover the price of the room.

A very nice hotel with an ideal location, Palermo airport bus transfer drops you off just opposite this lovely hotel. The staff will make you feel welcome right from the start and are very helpful. Room was spacious and comfortable, infact our room had a bathroom and a shower. It was situated at the back of the hotel and vas...

When we arrived there were flowers and a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for us. The room was plenty big with the TV/sitting room, two fullsize beds in the bedroom, and two bathrooms, one with a tub and toilet, the other with a big shower that was probably for handicapped entrance and a sink. Very quiet and clean. The day...

Nice hotel conveniently located in central city; excellent breakfast that includes a "make your own" cannoli bar. Next to tree-lined neighborhood streets for a quiet walk. Only drawbacks: tiny bathroom where you have to step over the toilet to get to the shower; and typically "hard-as-a-rock" Italian mattress. Not the best night's sleep.

I spend one night here with my boyfriend. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. We received a welcome fruit basket and local cookies. Continental breakfast was exceptional with a variety of local pastries and cakes and freshly squeezed juices.

Wonderfully situated hotel in the centre of Palermo. Huge room, complete with bathroom. The service was second to non! Nothing was to much. Breakfast the best we have had since arriving 5 days ago. Fruit plate to welcome us in our room. Superb bus service to the airport €6:30 each 50 minutes. Older building, well maintained, clean as a whistle....
