3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The first room that I had in the hotel had an awful odor. Fortunately, they let me change rooms the next day. Although the new room was smaller, it did not have the odor. Overall, the hotel is not bad for the price and close to many sites in old Palermo.

Good breakfast

Very helpful receptionist .. This lady helped make the break special

Make sure you visit the sister hotel in Mondello where you can make use of the facilities and swimming pools for free... This is a must

Good central location

Lovely building with character

Good quality sheets..

Will stop here again

The hotel is based on a high-roofed ex-bank like building of some antiquity. Inside it is a calm, cool and peaceful retreat from the narrow and pedestrian-unfriendly streets that funnel Palermo's heavy traffic through the centre. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking a residential courtyard. The restaurant is well worth a visit, with reasonably priced and authentic Sicilian dishes and a good local wine list.

The whole experience stopping here was out of this world..... On check in the staff were amazing.... We had a trek to get to hotel and was met by a receptionist who couldn't do enough for us...... As the temp outside was 37 she rand through to the bar and had a refreshing drink sent through.....

The hotel staff help make this one of the best city breaks ever....

There is a sister hotel that is worth a trip to where you an use the pool.... This is about 30 mins away in Mondello ...

Central for food and the sights..... You have to try the eateries and many street foods that are available. The Kebabs were to die for.... There is a department store round the corner from the hotel that has a wine bar and restraint on the roof... This is a must.....sounds bizarre but the views and food are spot on...

Rooms are clean and very spacious.... Breakfast is spot on...

Ideal location in the heart of Palermo, historical building completely restored with a beautiful inner courtyard, attentive staff and premium comfort.
If you have a car, it's easier to give it to the valet (18 euros per day) instead trying to find a parking in crowded Palermo.

Pretty sure we got upgraded because our economy room was huge, enormous comfy bed, terrace, flatscreen tv, mini fridge, seating area, and marble bathroom with a huge tub, bathrobes, and luxury toiletries. We peeked at another room and it wasn't as luxe, but still nice. We didn't have wifi in our room, but they offered to bring us a router. We didn't want to wait around so we just checked email in the lobby. The open air lobby is gorgeous! The location was perfect - walking distance to all the sites and close to an open air food market that was excellent. Be sure to ask prices before you get seafood because we got ripped off on some oysters because we were tourists. Great hotel!
