We had a long journey to Palermo for one reason or another in the middle of the night but we found a heavenly rest in the Palazzo Sitano. The ambience, welcome, clean environment and luxurious comfort all combined to make us an offer we couldn't refuse and linger awhile in this central Palermo haven of calm before venturing into the city to see the sights.
Our room faced out onto the main street but the sound proofing and air-conditioning helped us get a much needed rest before a glass of wine on the balcony, well, balconies to be precise as we had two! The bed was really comfortable, the shower and bathroom just such a pleasure to spend time in and such ornate ceilings you'd think you were in the Sistine Chapel.
The bar was a delight with free canapes at cocktail hour. It was our first night in Sicily let alone Palermo and we dined out after an aperitif (or two) sinking into the lovely sofas in the bar and reception areas.
Breakfast was a feast with plenty to choose from on a variety of counters. It was so tempting just to stay as we were enjoying the food, the service and the whole relaxed atmosphere.
From start to finish this was a fantastic hotel experience with everyone so friendly encouraging us to speak our less than inadequate Portuguese and helping us out when we went horribly wrong with their fluent English. A super start to our Sicilian adventure.
