Ranked #30 of 98 Hotels in Palermo
Reviewed May 21, 2011

This hotel is well located close to the train station. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean, double glazing reduced road noise but ear plugs were needed to sleep.
Wi-fi was available but intermittently did not work- staff fixed this after a time.
We had hired a car and parked without incident in the side street (for free), otherwise the hotel has parking available for 15 euro per night. Driving in Sicily is somewhat hair raising though- and probably should be avoid unless you are familiar with left hand drive!
Breakfast was OK. Pretty good crossaints. Yoghurt, average processed cheese and ham and sausages, scrambled eggs; cakes and bread were available too. The fruit was old and of a poor quality.

This was a reliable place to stay and pleasantly clean compared to the filth of Palermo, the staff too were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Away from the main road.

Located on Via Roma. Next to Palermo Centrale train station and bus station on piazza Cesare ,is very good for touring and sightseeing in Palermo. Numerous good restaurants, shops and farmacies next to the hotel.The buffet breakfast could be a little better. Room confortable with everything you need. Everybody were nice and helpful.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Del Centro and were disappointed with the size of the room; mostly disappointed in the size of the bathroom.

Positives: Great location on Via Roma (about a 5 minute walk from the train and bus stations and walking distance to many sights), free internet (slow at times but mostly ok), friendly staff, breakfast included.

Negatives: Small room and bathroom. While sitting on the toilet my face was literally in the sink. The shower was very uncomfortable because of the size (I'm 5'7", 130 lbs and it was uncomfortable). To be fair, I think some of the other rooms are not this small. It seemed like the room next to us was significantly bigger. Also, the walls are paper thin; it was impossilbe to sleep in past 7 am. The only other negative is that they don't have any english language channels but I guess this isn't a big deal.

I would recommend this hotel only if you're able to book a bigger room (or room with a bigger bathroom) and if you're a very heavy sleeper that can sleep in very noisy conditions.

Perfectly good little hotel. Central and within easy reach for all the sights (?!) of Palermo.
This city is so incredibly noisy that I doubt there is anywhere quiet to stay, however the Centro, situated on a main road was particularly noisy. The first room we were put in was lovely and roomy but the noise from the street (constant moped motors, honking, buses etc) was unbearable. We moved to a room at the back which was smaller but slightly quieter. Staff were fine about this, probably used to it I imagine. Breakfast was pleasant. No bar, so we ended up having cocktails on the roof terrace bar at the Ambassador Hotel down the road, which I'd highly recommend. Great views and a lovely cocktail list. Best part of our holiday for sure.

A very good three stars hotel, good service and nice people at the reception desk with a good knowledge of English (which is not the case for other hotels in Palermo at the same star rating). Good breakfast, unfortunately the same every morning (fresh fruits, cereals, two types of salami, bread, roasted, some cakes) not too fancy but OK. Very good coffee. The people at the reception helped us a lot with suggestions on trips and leisure time, gave some calls for us to check the availability of some excursions. They helped us with the air conditionning turning it on and off each time we have asked for (unfortunately there is no remote control for the air in the room - it's a minus).
We have stayed in room 31, big room, very clean with a big bathroom, a bit old furniture, TV with satellite. No view - we had the windows on an alley with a lot of immimgrants but the advantage is that the noise from Via Roma was reduced. Very good isolation windows, less good isolation from the walls but very nice people, no noise in the night from other rooms, we had very good sleep there.
Location is fantastic - shops, museum, the port is very close, we can reach every corner with a touristic meaning just walking from the hotel. Other hotels rated two or three stars close by were not so appealing (just looking from the front door we saw run down yards and garbage). Via Roma is a good hotel location, even if close to the train station - which is not the case for the portion of Via Maqueda near the train station (a lot of beggars and garbage, not very nice there).
All in all it worths the money and I will definetely stay there for another trip to Palermo.

breakfast was the worst out of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Sicily.
no hot food, rotten fruit in fruit bowl, bread not appealing, warm yogurt
