needed a hotel near airport decided on this propery as it was on the beavh and morr dining options in the areas. The property is old but all very functional staff are good and views are decent. Personally o would not stay here for any other reason than an airport run in the morning which took 25mins

Came to this hotel on business trip, first mention goes to the staff who are really helpful happy and polite. The hotel itself met my needs and more, good WiFi, nice bar, room with balcony overlooking the sea and a minibar and near to the center, just wish my stay had been holiday and not business trip

This hotel itself is not the newest one- not modern at all. Still room have everything you will need and breakfest - nothing special, very average. But what makes this hotel great is the private beach - you can go into sea from cliffs.

This hotel must've been fantastic in the 80s and 90s. In the current 21st century though it's faded glory. Yes, the location is great and the building looks impressive. The hotel is right next to the ocean and offers plenty of bedrooms and bussiness rooms. It's walking distance from the beach and center of Mondello, but we didn't really want... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in September 2015. We loved Mondello and this hotel is located at what looks to be the end of a road (but isn't). The view is spectacular, the service in the dining room was great. Our room was a little dated, but overall it met our needs. It is a very busy... More

The location of the hotel is outstanding however the **** stars rating is highly exaggerated as the breakfast was inadequate. One morning there was no milk, no eggs, no yogurt...had to ask the waiter. The bread basket was not filled regularly. Although the bedding and towels were changed every morning, there was no smoke alarm, the TV remote control did... More

We stayed at this "Splendid" hotel three days before our Go Ahead Trip. It has fantastic water views. Must ask for the "Blue" balcony water views. The rooms are outdated, sparse, but the views make up for it. It has a very nice pool, and a ladder where you can go snorkeling in the Mediterranean sea or just swimming. It... More

Positives: Location is fantastic, amazing views, a massive salt-water pool and direct access to the sea for a swim. Majority of staff were friendly and helpful at all times, especially in the Restaurant for dinner. Early check-in accommodated - a wonderful bonus. Air-con worked! Sea-view room with balcony - well worth the extra money - was fab to sit there... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Splendid Hotel La Torre is to be found in Mondello, a part of Palermo still wrapped in the myths of the "belle-epoque" and which is located between an unexpected traditional fishing village and one of the most beautiful and fascinating beaches of the Mediterranean. However, Mondello is just a few minutes bus ride away from the city centre on the other side of the wide avenues of Favorita park. On the opposite side, a short stretch of motorway connects Mondello to the city airport of Falcone - Borsellino. It is therefore and ideal place for those who want to enjoy a completely relaxing holiday whilst still being conveniently close to the centre of Palermo and its extraordinary monuments. The " La Torre" complex is situated after the large semi-circular beach, just a few metres on the other side of the fishing village on a little promontory of which the hotel occupies the smaller part, overlooking the bay with its park stretching out in the opposite direction as far as the "Capo Gallo" coastal reserve. The hotel has a private garage watch over video 24 hours a day. foto hotel2Bathing Area: From June to September, this particularly noted Sicilian bathing area is open to the public. Here it is possible to do all aquatic sports (sailing, windsurfing, water-biking, motor-boating, diving, etc.) Hotel guests have exclusive use of the large, well-equipped sun terrace located immediately behind the cliffs. From their rooms they can directly access the beautiful sea-water swimming pool, they can use the whirlpool bath and the purpose-built platform down on the rocks which is ideal for taking dips into the sea. ... more   less
