We booked this hotel for the last two nights of our holiday in view of the fact it was convenient for Mondello Beach and the airport. We approached the hotel with trepidation in view of the rather dirty and run down streets, and the fact the hotel was just off the autostrada. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find a refurbished Villa set in lovely gardens (surrounded by a high wall so that one could not see the surrounding area). The hotel also boasts a spa and a very attractive small swimming pool. The hotel is fairly new, and the staff worked hard to please guests. It was pretty obvious that most guests were 'one nighters' en route to the airport. One big advantage of this hotel is that those with cars can park easily and safely. We were delighted to find that the hotel is within easy walking distance of Nino Parrucca's pottery factory, where we found a marvellous selection of his products and saw his craftsmen working. This was a huge bonus which we felt the hotel could promote to their guests! We also found a couple of little inexpensive places to eat and a huge superstore within walking distance.
This hotel does not offer dinner, only breakfast and snacks during the day. Our room was cleaned whilst we had breakfast but there was not a lot of attention to detail - our floor was very dusty. We also felt that security was not sufficiently tight as there were gates left open onto common ground full of rubble.
I would recommend this hotel to those wanting to be close to the airport or wanting to visit Mondello.
