This former 18th century palace is an oasis of calm just a few metres from the busy streets at the centre of the old town of Palermo. The public rooms are very stylish and feature marble floors, antique furniture, rococo mirrors and grand chandeliers. Bedrooms offer an alternative of modern or classical decor. Our third floor room was spacious and elegant with a very pleasant small terrace that provided a quiet seating area. The bathroom was well equipped but the shower lacked power. However the main drawback was a background smell from the drains that built up overnight. The room included the promised safe and chargeable Wi-Fi access but this worked only intermittently and was very slow (there is a free Wi-Fi facility available in the ground floor public rooms which was actually faster!). The TV service had only BBC and CNN news in English and the paid-for movie facility simply didn’t exist. Breakfast is served in the splendid second floor restaurant. There is an excellent buffet with cold meats, cheeses, fish, pastries, etc, as well as hot dishes including scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. The hotel has a rooftop terrace that features a bar and the ‘Ai Tetti’ restaurant. Both of these areas are very quiet and there is no street noise up here. The restaurant offers both inside and outside dining with a menu that features a range of Sicilian dishes. The emphasis is on pasta but there are fish, pork, beef and lamb dishes available. The wine list includes a very good range of excellent Sicilian wines at very reasonable prices. If travelling by car , there is a garage underneath the hotel which costs 15 Euro per day. The approach is via a very narrow street so a small car is recommended! Service throughout the hotel is very efficient and guest requests are dealt with effectively and promptly. Against that, the staff are generally very formal and not especially friendly. The hotel is very well situated for exploring the old town with most of the major attractions within a 15 minute walk.
