    The hotel was very clean and nicely designed.The breakfast is really nice and the reception staff,Angelo and Giovanni were most helpful.The hotel is in a nice location and not so far from the main sights,about 10-15 minute walk,the area is also quite safe and close to some very nice restuarants.

    I liked the ambience, the large room, spotless bathroom, convenience of location, and nice restaurants nearby.

    When we arrived in the evening of our 3 day stay, we asked at the desk if we could schedule a city tour by bus. We were told that kind of tour would not be available during our visit. We were referred to a private tour guide who was good but extremely expensive. We decided to spend the money because we did not have another way to see the city. The day after we had paid for a full day tour of the city with this guide, we saw several double decker tour buses throughout the city. We were disappointed that we did not receive the correct information from the hotel desk on our arrival. Why were we told that no such tour existed?

    Calm location, you cal walk to major parts of the city. Hotel staff was nice and helpful.

    A little bit difficult to find when you go by car.

    A lovely hotel with excellent staff. For €12 a day you can leave your car keys at the reception and they will park the vehicle for you. Very handy in town like Palermo. Nice, clean rooms, a beautiful reading room, good breakfast. Most sights in Palermo are within walking distance, lots of nice bars and restaurants are just around the corner from the hotel. I arrived with horrible a tooth ache late on a Saturday, and the receptionist managed to get me an appointment with a brilliant local dentist for Sunday afternoon. Happy days!

    The bathrooms are a little bit too small.
