50 year old professional couple, stayed mid Feb 2013 for 3 nights. positive aspects of the hotel: (1) within walking distance of the airport bus and main train station as well as many of the main sights (2) clean, modern comfortable rooms, good mattresses, fairly soundproof windows [our room was 2nd floor - ear plugs still advisable!] (3) stylish hotel interior design (4) good safe in the room ; negative aspects: (1) reception staff is not well informed / not really helpful, there is no information about Palermo sights in the room, there are no tea making facilities in the room (2) breakfast room is uncomfortable due to exceedingly cold drafts (we complained repeatedly, but the problem persisted) (3) coffee machine at breakfast produces awful canteen quality coffee - one has to specifically ask staff to get a proper coffee from the bar area (4) on checkout multiple items from the mini-bar were added to my bill - even though nothing was ever taken/consumed - I had to vehemently protest for the charges to be dropped with no apology forthcoming (5) no CNN or BBC World Service on TV - only (mostly rubbish) Italian stations ... (6) free WIFI only in the reception area, in the room there is a ridiculous € 15/day charge Nevertheless, on balance, I would recommend this hotel and stay here again
