“It was okay”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

The price was not the greatest for the quality of hotel but it had a nice location. Very short walk to the main streets of Palermo and bus lines that take you all over the city. The hotel was clean and the room was comfortable for two people. Was not noisy considering where we were located. Provided a pretty decent breakfast for a hotel and the dining area did not feel cramped. Staff was friendly and quick to provide tips and suggestions for exploring the city. Even provided us with bus numbers. My only issue is that WiFi is only available in the lobby. It's 2013, so I'm not sure why hotels still do this.

Stayed here for two nights. From the main Palermo Airport get a coach from just outside the terminal to Palermo Central for 6EUR. Taxis are very expensive (45EUR). Then get off one stop before the main bus terminal (near the old theatre)- the hotel is then a 5minute walk (follow signs for the nearby Joli Hotel).

The hotel is very modern, It was 'currently under renovation'. We had a balcony but there was scaffolding outside that. We had a double room which was two twin beds pushed together. The room was nice but the build finish did look like a DIY attempt. Nothing really lined up correctly. There is free WIFI in the lobby which we also received in the room. The breakfast was basic but sufficient. The hotel location is very central and most things are walking distance. The staff at the desk were very nice and helpful.

The girls at reception were wonderful. Antonio the bar tender was the best! We loved chatting with him and sharing our day. He made our stay one we won't soon forget.

The room was huge, the bathroom lovely. The cleaning staff were lovely.

Breakfast is a feast, so much to choose from, all very fresh and constantly replaced with fresher plates.

Free wifi and use of the apple macs in the lobby was convenient.

The location really can't be beaten though, only 5 mins walk to Teatro Politeama and Teatro Massimo, you really are in the heart of Palermo.

If you're keen on walking, we took the hop on hop off bus on day 1 to see what was about and ended up walking back to everything we wanted to spend more time at at a later date which worked well. I was in Palermo to do genealogy, best archives in Sicily. Make sure and check hours and days only open until 1:30 on Saturday closed Sunday.

We checked in mid afternoon and were allocated a very small double room, so small that there was hardly space to place our 2 suitcases and still move. We complained and asked for the type of room we believe we paid for, but Reception insisted there was none available.
We did manage to change to decent room the next day.
