“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very nice and comfortable hotel located a few hundreds of meters from railway station.
The breakfast served to room was super! When checking in, you order which kind of a breakfast you want and the tray is delivered to your room at the time of your choice. This is what's called hospitality.
The only negative thing was that in wintertime (December), the room was rather cold. Maybe I felt so, because in Skandinavia I have used to have warm rooms in winter. There was an air-con device, which worked, but in a four meters high room the warm air stayed in the upper half of the room.

We stayed in Hotel Italia because of its locations and price. It is situated not far from the train and bus station (which really convenient as buses from the airport arrive there) and also really close from the markets and all monuments: all are accessible in a few minutes. It is situated on an avenue whith lots of clothes shops. There are a little supermarket and tons of bars and little restaurants in the Mercato de la Vucciria, really close from the hotel. Very cool area at night as well. The hotel is situated on the 4th Floor of a building (there is an elevator) and it is like going to an appartment which is lovely. Staff is very nice and breakfast is delicious and brought up to the room at a chosen time. We loved that. Our room was very basic but confortable. I could see that there are some better rooms with balconies on the other side of the building but we had a very good deal and maybe these were more expensive. We stayed three nights and would go back. Highly recommended place.

It was a bit like in a european movie. A short walk from the train station. Then, a lift to the 4th floor where the hotel is. A small desk room, where you get a warm welcome. Your room is larger than you thought, everything is spotless, your bed comfortable. You look at your room and smile. Only in Europe you can find that kind of atmosphere.

We really appreciated the breakfast that is served in your room at the time of your choice and the products of your choice.

We stayed here as a panic booking and it was fine for what we needed. With no accommodation booked in Palermo for our last night, we opted to stay here as it ticked all the boxes. It was cheap, near central station (so we could catch an early bus to the airport) and central enough to let us explore Palermo proper.

It was everything we expected it to be and nothing more. But that was fine. It was clean enough, the staff were friendly and the bed relatively comfortable.

There's not an awful lot to say about Hotel Italia, really. It just does the job you want. And for cheap. As neither overwhelming or underwhelming as it was, it's likely I would stay here again.

Using the airport bus from Palermo airport it is really easy to find, a 5 minute walk from the bus station. It is also well located for all the sights, restaurants and shopping. The hotel is clean and having breakfast in bed was a bonus! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

we stayed here for one night before a week in cefalu and for one night afterwards. It is a friendly place, a good price (50 euros per room) , very clean with lovely shower rooms and we felt very safe. Its a great location for all the sites and for travel to and from the airport and the railway station as it is less than 5 minutes walk from the airport bus stop and the main railway terminus. The people who run this hotel are superb - helpful, friendly and warm and the breakfast - delivered to the room - is great. I would recommend this and I am likely to stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room with balcony

We spended one night here before leaving back to home (via Cefalu). So perfect location for us close to railwaystation and airport bus! Also good spot for some last minute wandering in a streets (Vucciria, shopping, dining, sea).

Furnishing at room ascetic, but high ceiling with decorations and beautifully tiled floors compensated this all! Efficient A/C. Kind people and service (breakfast to room included:-)
