Comfortable hotel on outskirts of PalermoPosted Apr 19, 2014
Pros: Very spacious 'family room' consisting of two rooms - exceeded expectations. Friendly staff, lovely gardens, nice breakfast, around beautiful villa.
Location: A good jumping off point for day trips, such as Palermo, Monreale, Segesta and Bagheria - and further afield to Selinunte.
We hugely enjoyed this holiday. We had not been to Sicily before and this was an excellent base for exploring several parts of the island - including some beautiful sites, all the more so for being decked in spring flowers. The Greek temples at Selinunte and Segesta were especially impressive as were the Roman mosaics at Piazza Armerina, although it was almost 3 hours drive over the mountains in the centre of the island to the latter. We also very much enjoyed the food - the seafood was excellent (even if ultimately disappointing in Porticello, where much is landed from the boats). There are several good restaurants near the hotel including La Brasiera and (more expensively) La Caseta de la Nonna. In short, we can't wait to return to Sicily and visit some other areas. The hotel very much suited our needs, and as part of a package deal (with flights and hire car) was very good value. Driving around Palermo is quite challenging and we advise full insurance cover as it is rare to see a car without scratches down the side. Top tip: make sure you have a map to the hotel from the airport or a sat nav as without this (as we discovered in a torrential rain storm) it is very hard to find your way around the outskirts of Palermo with its many one-way streets. The hotel has secure parking (at an extra cost) and rooms have air conditioning or heating. Careful if you leave your windows open as there are Mosquitos (in the spring at least).

Very pleasant hotel in it's own grounds but not inPosted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Breakfast and garden
Cons: Storage space and lighting
Location: On outskirts of Palermo and out of any tourist interests. Mainly commercial hotel.
Unfortunately hotel is not in a tourist area. Therefore a car is needed but the hotel does have a car park. Rooms pleasant with balcony overlooking gardens. Lack of storage/drawer space. Quiet rooms and very pleasant staff.

Palatial hotel, good price in PalermoPosted Oct 29, 2013
Pros: Easy to drive to. Good value for money.
Cons: The room was rather too large, not well laid out and a bit dingy.
Location: We were staying in Palermo and needed a safe hotel and easy to get into the centre. It was perfect for that. The main building is wonderful.
Easy to get to from the airport. Great private parking. Feels a bit like a conference venue but we would certainly stay again. We came on the late flight from the UK and the restaurant was closed but the very nice receptionist showed us the way to a lovely trattoria nearby. Loved the breakfast room and breakfast first rate. Good value for money; i'd stay there again.

This is not really a hotel! Most of the rooms are in separate buildings from the reception area and access to the rooms is outdoors. The breakfast is OK but again the breakfast is located in a separate building which is not signposted at all. Although the hotel claims to have Wifi in the rooms there is none. Wifi is only available in the reception area. There is a bar but it is not staffed and ordering a drink is only possible if there is no function on in the adjoining wedding centre.

Our Palermo visitPosted Aug 15, 2013
We had an excellent experience at Hotel Casena Dei Colli. There was air conditioning in the rooms as well as a shower and a mini frig. Breakfast was included in our package and it was good. The staff members were helpful and professional. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Palermo.

A good spot for both Palermo and airport.Posted May 22, 2013
Ideal for a one or two-night stopover. The area is quiet and the room was large, nice and clean and perfectly adequate for our purposes. The hotel is well situated for a relatively easy access to the city by bus (around 30 minute journey, one change) which saved us having to drive in Palermo or stay in a noisy city centre location. Car parking was included in the very reasonable price. The journey from hotel to airport by car was very straightforward and less than 30 minutes.

Great hotel if you have your own carPosted May 8, 2013
Pros: Wireless free and nice breakfast room
Cons: Surrounded by ugly 70 building blocks
Location: Good on the way to airport and Mondello beach
We stayed a couple of days and the room was spacious and clean but the door was not very well insulated so it can happen to hear your neighbour slamming the door. The nice mansion in the picture is available to guesst only in the morning at breakfast time. Breakfast is ok and wireless is free!

Nice hotel for couplesPosted Apr 30, 2013
Pros: Peaceful and good croisants for breakfast. Nice garden.
Cons: No pegs to hang your towel in the bathroom, which had a glass wall from the shower stall into the bedroom!!?? Our bedroom had a bathtub in it too!!?
Location: Quite difficult to find. We rented a car with GPS and it still wasn't easy.
The hotel is quite a distance from the city center and rather difficult to find driving yourself. The staff are helpful and friendly. Most of the rooms are rather small and do not have windows. We had a big room on the second floor with 2 windows. There are no pegs to hang your coat or towel (in the bathroom). The staff says that the architect would not allow them !? There is a nice old garden around ( the guestrooms are divided by ''pavillions'') Breakfast, which is continental and quite good, is served on the second floor of what was the original villa of what was probably a farm. I had lived in Milan for 12 years so know Italy well, but had never been to Sicily. While I love Italian food, Sicilian was quite a disapointment.We stayed a week and ate in a dozen restaurants,quite a few expensive, but the food was never good.
