The old stock exchange building converted into a superb hotel. Just off of Via Roma and Via Vittorio Emanuele, it is perfectly located for all major sight seeing in Palermo, including the famed Vucciaria market (though the Ballaro market is much livelier and more authentic today). Good shopping along Via Roma. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Ours had a nice balcony overlooking a quaint neighborhood. Very quiet, for a good night's sleep each of 7 nights. Highly professional staff (though the small front desk sometimes can be overwhelmed by guests at checkout on weekends.) Impressive atrium open to the sky is a nice place for cafe and a newspaper, even if it rains and the roof closes over. Good restaurant (10% discount for hotel guests) in impressive, large dining room that fronts on the Piazza Cassa Risparmo, where breakfast is taken. Other excellent local restaurants are close at hand, including Casa del Brodo and Osteria dei Vespri, and the old, maybe overrated, Antica Focacceria di San Francesco. We would stay here again without hesitation.
