As several previous reviews state the hotel can appear tired in places, this is mainly due to the worn carpeting that is evident throughout the hotel. However the overall appearance, quality and standard of the hotel is great with a fantastic array of original features being evident in all of the public rooms. Our bedroom was huge with a small juliette balcony, dressing area and marble bathroom. The bed was comfortable and with the exception of the carpet, the room was immaculately decorated complete with flat screen TV. The staff were friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was more than adequate with a good continental selection on offer, including a small hot buffet and a selection of traditional sicillian fair.The history of the hotel is fascinating and it's central location means that it is within walking distance of many of the attractions that Palermo has to offer. We would recommend this hotel as I believe it offers a good standard of accomodation that is great value for money.
