That title just about sums it all up. We had nice rooms with terraces overlooking the marina, but the hotel is a bit tired and dated.. it probably was grand once, but that must have been a while ago. Our tour guide told us that this was the best hotel to stay in in Palermo, which says it all.
Palermo is probably worth staying in for a day just to see the magnificent Capella Palatina, but that's it!
