We spent five enjoyable nights here, the hotel occupies the first floor of an old Palazzo just off Via Ruggero Settimo. The entrance is a little obscure, down a laneway into a courtyard (full of parked cars) and up the elevator to the first floor. Via Ruggero Settimo is part of what must be the main road through Palermo, at this end of the street it is full of upmarket shops and quite pleasant, the setting of the hotel off the street ensures that the rooms are quiet whilst being an easy walk to many of the sights in Palermo. The street was blocked to cars twice during our stay, on the Friday (a public holiday) and on the Sunday evening, the whole area was buzzing with activity and street life adding to the ambience of the location.
The owner Guiseppe has done a wonderful job restoring the rooms, ours was roomy with high ceilings, a balcony and air conditioning that worked well (needed for Palermo!).
The bed was very comfortable, breakfast was Ok and Guiseppe was very helpful.
The only negative was the absence of tea/coffee facilities in the room (same for all our hotels in Sicily) but free cold bottled water was available in the room.
