Nice hotel in the centre of cityPosted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: The girls in the reception very helpfull.
Location: Hotel is perfectly located in the centre of city. You can walk around old town and discover history all day.

Disappointed....Would NOT RECOMMEND!!!!Posted Jun 1, 2014
Palermo is a big, busy, dirty city....after traveling 30 minutes from airport I was happy to see the hotel it is close bus stop and is centrally located. Entering the hotel I noticed it was very dark. After being greeted, I was given my key and told to go to room without having things explained. I was told to come back for my passports. So, we went to room on 8th floor. The room was DARK...extremely HOT!! I opened balcony door and let fresh air in. When I went back down to get passports, IHAD TO ASK about Wi-Fi, how to work the very confusing Tv channel changer and the little refrigerator in the room was gross and filthy. We tried to get the A/C to work and we were told what we thought was that the repair man would look at it that night. What actually happened is the air conditioner ONLY works from 2 pm - 10 pm. I slept with a damp towel to stay cool. Overall the hotel is run down and old. While walking around town I carried a small purse and left the bigger travel purse in the room. EVERY DAY, without fail, my purse was gone through. I had set 'traps' so I would know if my purse was looked in. The coffee there was horrid. In a country known for their amazing coffee, it was tank and bitter. And although I was thankful for breakfast, it was not good at all. This was the last hotel of our trip. We had just spent 15 days traveling all over Italy and EVERY hotel was FANTASTIC.... the coffee you couldn't by get enough and the breakfast delicious. I DO NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THE $$$$

Not bad, not exceptionalPosted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: Airconditioning when it's 36 degrees outside! Good breakfast selection.
Cons: Bathroom very dated and in poor condition - could do with an upgrade. Don't drink the coffee!
Location: Great location, particularly for accessing public/tourist transport. Good selection of restaurants and bars close-by.
Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, good location. Hotel a bit dated and had very limit services.

basic comforts but well locatedPosted Jun 2, 2013
Cons: dark, stuffy rooms
Location: ideal if it is your first time in Palermo
Great location in the centre of Palermo. Take the bus from the airport and it drops you opposite the hotel in the Politeama square. We had a room for three people. The air con was impossible to adjust so we slept with the windows open and then had the noise of the square outside. The room would benefit from better lighting. The furnishings and general areas are a mixture of styles - a bit of an odd combination. We were unable to get a drink in the bar in the early evening. Likewise any form of snack or meal apart from breakfast. Other guests seem to be bringing their own refreshments in. I don't think this is a 4 star hotel but would use it again.

A property that could be again splendidPosted May 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Property has had better time. Look tired even though the staff does their best to maintain the level of the past. Furniture and amenities are very minimum and bed was very uncomfortable. The location is excellent and there is an excellent restaurant at walking distance. Overall it is a good buy for the price.

Affordable in an attractive locationPosted Sep 21, 2012
Pros: Location, affordability, comfort
Cons: Rooms a bit dated
The hotel is comfortable and located in an excellent place -- close to the theatre, restaurants, shops, and a large square. The bus to and from the Punta Raisi airport stops right in front. The staff is friendly, good breakfast, overall cleanliness. However, it is a bit dated and would not merit four stars in the US. Having said all this, I redcommend it as good value for the money,

great locationPosted Sep 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
hotel in great location, first impression walking in door isnt great - would definitely advise to get rid of the old and worn mat and the smell of bleach hits you, after that all was great, lovely furniture in foyer, room and breakfast lovely. would definitely stay there again, very convenient for airport. The flags outside could also be replaced or removed!
