Stylish modern hotel in a quiet and safe area. Friendly and considerate service. Excellent breakfast. Bit of a walk from the main sights, though close to shopping and dining areas.

this is a good hotel for touring Palermo, which has some rough areas. However, this hotel is located in a good neighborhood, near very fine restaurants. The sights of Palermo are a considerable walk, or a quick cab ride away. The staff is very helpful in making reservations and giving directions and information. The hotel is definitely no frills, but very clean and friendly, plus the price includes a good breakfast.

First time in Sicily and booked this hotel based on recommendations below. It was pleasantly surprised that the hotel is just 3-5 mins walk from the main street with grocery store, bars and bus stop to old town/ central station. We feel safe in the neighbourhood. We were recommended to to a no. of nearby Italian restaurants (ard 7 - 10 mins walk) for dinner where dishes are delicious with fair price.

The hotel and service is good. Given that we are in Palermo, it's already an achievement.
The lobby and restaurants are very very elegant and comfortable. The Breakfast is worth the stay

boring hotel, unable to have curtains drawn or window open, breakfast was pedestrian and slow
mini bar and parking are not free!!
We would recommend staying in the old town instead.

First of all I have only seen this hotel in the 'low' season, so I can only judge from that viewpoint. The room was big and clean, the soft drinks in the minibar were free and you could leave your car in the garage for free (useful in central Palermo). The 'entertainment' side (bar, restaurant) wasn't exactly 4 star, but then again it was low season. The breakfast was very good with lots of fresh foods to choose from. Shame the hotel doesn't have any garden or green patch, but its central location (right in the centre of town) certainly makes up for it. I'd definitely go back.

Surprisingly quiet place in chaotic Palermo. Comfortable rooms, good breakfast. Very helpful staff. Only weak point is the permanent closure of the restaurant, but except from that very good place to stay for a reasonable price.
