I must admit that I really disliked Palermo overall, which will probably influence this review. The city was filthy and smelled terrible. Traffic was also chaotic, I am from Portugal and we have a bad reputation when driving, but this was beyond belief.
The hotel itself is old, the hallways to the rooms were filthy with very old and dirty carpets.
The wifi worked well but was only available in the main lobby. We could use an ethernet cable in the room and it worked well tho, good thing I took my laptop with me.
Rooms were spacious but also very old, poorly decorated and the TV only had 4 or 5 working channels. Cleanliness was ok but could be better and the bathroom had a leaking shower which sprayed water everywhere when being used.
Staff was not helpful at all, arrogant and not pleasant with an exception to the mais which were very nice.
The location is also pretty bad, near the frui market, far from the center.
I will most certainly never go back.
