    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.

    Location in a nice area of Palermo Restaurant in the hotel was excellent

    Wi Fi connection had some issues whilst we were there. The hotel advised us of this and didn't charge for Wi Fi.

    Location

    This hotel is a complete delusion. I guess the pictures were made 10 years ago. At this moment the rooms are extremely outdated, it is absolutely not worth the 90/100 euro a night. The staff did not even have an iron when we asked for it. The breakfast is poor as well. You can get a lot better for this price, we really recommend everyone to stay away.

    La cosa più bella è l'estrema centralità dell'hotel,a cento metri da via della Libertà e a poco più di 400 m da piazza Politeama. Ma anche gli ambienti dell'hotel sono molto belli e chic.

    La zona, no está en el mismo centro pero casi mejor, el barrio es muy tranquilo y hay bus casi en la puerta del hotel que te deja en el mismo centro (Cuatri Canti, Porta Felice, Estación Central...). Tb muy cercano andando a la estación de Notarbartolo. El hotel es nuevo, de diseño y la cama superconfortable. Te facilitan transfer al aeropuerto por 40 euros. Recomendable 100%. No dan cenas excepto a grupos, pero en los alrededores hay tratorias. El desayuno no muy variado en salado, pero los dulces exquisitos.

    Estuvo todo perfecto.
