“Good 4 star hotel at an excellent rate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

This is a good 4 star hotel. It's well-located in the old town for sight-seeing. The huge atrium on the ground floor where the bar is located is particularly impressive. Our room was a good size and very tastefully decorated. It was quiet at night, had a black-out shade and made sleeping easy. The wifi is free and worked well in the room, although sometimes the strength was a little down. Breakfast was from 7.30 to 10.30am and there was a good range on the buffet - our only complaint is that they cheapest out on the orange juice, which was like (slightly) coloured water. We paid 18€ per day for valet parking, which was convenient, but street parking can be had much more cheaply nearby if you're up for a little extra effort. The staff helpfully made restaurant bookings for us. We also stayed at the nearby Hotel Palazzo Sitano on this trip, but slightly preferred the Borsa.

Cost us a thoroughly reasonable £84 to stay here and it was worth every penny. Our room was spacious and really well decorated. It had a balcony overlooking a piazza and church outside and was well fitted through out. The breakfast is pretty good too. All round, a fantastic experience.

In an austere building close to nearly everywhere in Palermo, this is a great hotel with a sumptuous lobby, large and elegantly decorated rooms, great service and all that for a more than reasonable price. We spent two nights here and was a very safe place to recover after walking in the beautiful but baldy kept city. Would definitely go back.

Good location in a square with easy car access even if you don't find a space in the square. The hotel is grand set round a large covered courtyard. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very well appointed. Better than expected.

Elegant modern hotel in a restored classical building in the centre of town. The rooms are bright, clean and beautifully furnished. The beds are very comfortable and the whole atmosphere refined and elegant, and very quiet despite the central location. Breakfast was a large spread of delicious Sicilian goodies as well as the usual international staples. Staff were helpful and polite. It is very easy to get to the major attractions of Palermo from this hotel.

.. in a bustling chaotic city which must be experienced. Central location much to see within walking distance. We had a large well equipped room with a balcony to sit out on, over looking the roof terrace and with roof top views which were impressive. Room was quiet although some of our companions found traffic noise a problem. Restaurant and Bar staff were attentive , spoke good english and in particular late evening green tea and coffee was produced together with small pastries. I would certainly recommend and plan to return

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room although hotel is set back from the main street

We booked at the last minute a complete package, and got a good deal. Room although not very large were confortable with a very nice view over the roofs of the old town of Palermo.
Within walking distance of about everything to be seen in the city. The managment and personnel were very nice and helpful. We were there in March, low season and it was very calm. Restaurant is nice and a little expensive but this is to be expected in such a large and luxury setting.
If you are a heavy WIFI user better ask to test your room before getting in, in some place like ours on the 4th floor there was no signal except in the corridor.
