We used this as our airport hotel for arrival on a late flight, and departure on an early flight. It was a 20 minute drive. It was clean & well run. Desk staff was pleasant. The room and bath were quite small for a four-star hotel though. If you are an American, think SMALL Rodeway Inn room. Breakfast was good, but service at dinner was terrible. We were advised that a tour bus was there, so to come after 9 PM. We did, but service was still terrible. Our wine bottle was unceremoniously opened, set on the table, and the server scurried away. We waited too long to order, and felt generally "dismissed" rather than catered to the entire meal. Also, you have to lug your own luggage from the parking lot to your room, and parking is via an independent lot, where they speak NO english at all. Palermo traffic is a nightmare, and you'll likely miss the turnoff for the hotel and have to navigate the kind of crazy main highway with limited access to access roads a few times to get there. For the price it may have been a reasonable option, but next time we'll probably look at other options - might spend a bit more for something easier to access and perhaps with better service and slightly bigger room. I wouldn't stay here if I was actually visiting Palermo, but it's fine as an "airport hotel".
