Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were in Palermo for five nights ,the hotel is central to amenities and the staff were so helpful and pleasant , the hotel is spotlessly clean, and the breakfast each mroning was a cold buffet, the bar in the hotel is great for a drink before you head out to dinner, and serves a great coffee to help you get your energy back after a full day sightseeing in Palermo.

Room Tip: The hotel has only one floor, so all rooms would be the same, their is no noise from street level.

Enjoyed staying here. A good three star hotel. It is located in the middle of the city and within walking distance of plenty of things to see, places to eat, and pubs & bars. The staff is definitely a five star quality. All the staff members were always trying to help. Some five star hotels could utilize this people. Parked on the street and my wife went to find out where the parking was. The manager came out and personally showed me parking area (under the hotel). They have to unlock the gate when you need to get to the car, but never an issue. Within 20 seconds someone would take you to unlock the gate. The rooms were nice, for the three of us staying. The air conditioning was cold. Had to keep it on low. Wifi was good. Kept three bars and able to surf and type this response while in the room. Shower wasn't powerful, but was good. No views out the window, but didn't expect one. If I wanted a view, I will walk out to the streets. Breakfast was above average based on having stayed in about 15 hotels throughout Italy. The typical pastries, cereal, bread, fruit, juices and coffee.
The hotel has only one floor of rooms and a floor with the reception area, breakfast and bar. The elevator is slow, but you’re on vacation. There is no rush. A great choice.

We had no trouble finding the hotel and staff jumped in the car with my husband to the parking area. The hotel is very central to all areas. Close to the shopping streets, close to the old town and its sites...and we even walked to the catacombs. The rooms however reeked of cigarettes, the air- con barely worked, you couldn't have a window open as the noise came straight in. Breakfast was very ordinary.

Room Tip: Had 2 no smoking rooms, both reeked.

1) Location-location-location. Perfect. In the middle of it all.
2) Service provided all the way. You are their guest at this hotel, and they really make you feel that way.
3) Nice abd large room. Big and comfy bed (very important to e due health issues). Clean and tidy, only minus was the shower. The water didn't run fluently away. Did mention it to room maid, but still same problem.
4) Very good value for money! Love it when the basic needs are fulfilled for a cityhotel and the price is nice. City holidays are often expensive as it is; shopping, restaurant eating, entry to museums, taxi and so on.
Recommend this hotel easilly, and would stay there again.
Ps. We had no wiew, but not sure if it is possible. Didn't bother us, we were exploring Palermo at day time. :)

Wow! This hotel went way above and beyond to make this an absolutely incredible experience. My arrival was delayed due to a missed flight by 2 days (5 day reservation) and they were able to push out my reservation, no extra charge or fees. When does that happen? From the moment I checked in until I departed, they were informative, very helpful and over the top kind to me. If/when I come back to Palermo, I would not even consider staying anywhere else! Thanks again guys!
