“Great location!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Perfect spot for a walking tour of Palermo. Close to markets, shopping, restaurants and major attractions. Hotel is across the street from Symphony Hall. Accommodations are clean. Breakfast buffet was nice! Staff provide good recommendations for restaurants.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is not street side since the noise may be quite loud.

We arrived around 9am after a journey on an overnight ferry from naples. The staff were so nice and offered us free breakfast that morning because our room wasn't ready yet. They also gave us free wifi internet which was another nice gesture. We stayed in a superior room. The bedroom and bathroom were basic but both were very spacious. We didn't have a nice view but on the upside our room was clean. The staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel is centrally located, near to all the main areas like the sea port, shopping, bus stops, restaurants.

The hotel is on an excellent location, with a parking on the back side (10 €/night). We had a warm welcome at the reception from the 2 smiling ladies, and they helped us to get the appropriate room (there was a strange noise from the airco in one room, and we received another without any discussion). The rooms on the back side of the hotel are very quit (we recommend!). The wireless internet connection is very good (they didn't charge us for 24h connection - thanks!). The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is extended, but the with only 1 guy, the service could be better. We'll come back!

Room Tip: ask for a room at a higher lever or on the back side of the hotel

The hotel location is very good, 15 minutes away from Palermo main tourist attractions and close to the port. The car park, although small, is clearly a plus in a city like Palermo. The hotel is in an old but fully renovated building. A lot of attention has been given to decoration whether in the lobby or in the rooms and the overall result is quite nice. However, more attention must also be given to maintenance as there were hundreds of scratches on the walls of the room we occupied (102) making it look like more a graffiti wall than a hotel room. It was also quite noisy in the morning when buses started to run. Breakfast must be improved as there is clearly not enough variety of breads and pastries and the quality of some products (e.g. fruit juices, coffee) is clearly poor. Although my overall opinion on the hotel is not negative because of the service, location and decoration it is clear that management needs to work on some issues to raise the property standard.

avoid at all cost. not a historical hotel even it is being advertised as such. recently cheaply renovated and already falling apart. cracks in ceilings, dirty walls, rooms poorly furnished (tv's could not be any smaller). bathroom lacking windows or fans. most rooms have no view other then the concrete paneled side of the building next to it. parking and wireless not included in rates.

didn't start of great, as our trip from Naples was by Ferry and we arrived in Palermo at 700am, and got the taxi to the hotel, which was quite close to the Port of Palermo.
The room was not ready, not did i think it would be, but we where offered breakfast, which was very good, and clean, with lots of different rooms to eat in, which sometimes confused me.

We didn't get into the room until after 1;00, The staff had to wake us up as we had felll asleep on the couches, in the lobby, what a sight.

Liked the room, it was very big, not a lot of furnishings, but compy beds, a couch and a balcony that made me feel I could see the world.
We where on the 3rd floor and over looked all of the Politeama area. Loved that Balcony

Room Tip: Overlooking the street the hotel is located on

We were a party of 20 and our checkin was very smooth and quick. The checkin lady was very friendly.

The rooms were spacious and newly furnished but not very homely or comfortable. There were no pictures on the wall and the only cast iron chair had no cushion.

When having a shower the bathroom always got flooded as there was no shower curtain around the shower.

We checked in on Saturday and we were told the the Internet is down and will be fixed on Monday. It was still not working when we left on Tuesday.

The breakfast choice was very reasonable. All the staff were friendly except one young lady who never ever smiled.

The hotel location is perfect to enjoy Palermo at any time of the day and any day. The locals came out in the area on Saturday and Sunday evenings. There is great choice of restaurants near by.

The hotel is not suitable if you are unable to carry your own luggage.

The TV in the bed room was very small and too far to watch comfortably from the bed. Although there was plenty of choice of channels including the BBC World.

The noise insulation was inadequate. The traffic noise kept many of the guests in our party awake late into the night.
