We stayed in this hotel as a treat for the last few days of our honeymoon.
Classic and beautiful interior.
We had carefully read reviews about some of the rooms so spent a bit more on a superior double. Whilst there was no view from the window - the room was elegant and smart.
However, the bathroom was extremely dated and ceiling from suffering from a damp problem.
The restaurant and bar at the top of the hotel were excellent - food was lovely and the setting absolutely beautiful - well worth splashing out on a meal / drinks here. Unfortunately the staff did not seem to be well organised and a few tables ended up waiting a significant amount of time to get their attention.
Excellent location for exploring Palermo from. Definitely recommend booking the car park if you have been brave enough to drive through the city to get here. Very central so would recommend exploring by foot / tour bus. The car park is located up the alley immediately to the right of the hotel as you look at it, you will need to get a member of staff to open the garage for you, be warned the street the incredibly busy. In true Sicilian style we just stopped out the front - ran in - got the porter.
Breakfast room and food were fantastic. Really felt luxurious! Staff were unfortunately quite stand offish and service was fairly impersonal.
Have rated the hotel as Average as it has all the potential to be a great luxurious stay but the atmosphere in this beautiful building is some what lacking. Paying these prices you would expect to have access to the buildings corridors and stairs to explore but whilst we were there they had closed off the main and stunning staircase for no apparent reason. You had to use the lifts or the back staircase. Furniture in the lobby was dirty (cream sofa's clearly needed a good scrub). This somewhat ruined the 'romantic' feel of the stay.
