Great place to stay

5 out of 5
Posted Nov 2, 2016
Pros: Really central location and right on the pedestrian street where everyone comes out to walk and talk. Right across from opera house and walking distance to everything you want to see in Palermo. Easy bus connections to airport and beyond. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast.
Cons: Our room was in the back so no view and right on top of the alley and building across. They have great soundproof windows but I bet the rooms with the opera view are really nice!
Location: Climb the cathedral and go see the palace and The chapel. Also ballero market - so much fun. And must do the evening stroll on via maqueda.

Pros: Location. And staff
Cons: Real glasses and better linens
We wanted to love the hotel as the location and staff were wonderful. They had to send me to another hotel for the first night because of a health issue with a guest. I was timely notified and they took care of all details. Turns out, we liked the other hotel better. The quality of linens was average, the Ac did not cool the room well, and they used plastic glasses in the room. The breakfast was very average, although the coffee was excellent. Overall, not a good value, but again, a great location and we enjoyed our stay.

Mixed feelings

Posted Sep 18, 2016
Pros: Friendly and very helpful staff
Cons: Take our the wall to wall carpet.
Location: Just across from the Teatro Massimo
We arrived at the hotel at 1 in the morning and almost turned around when we saw where it was. It was full or young kids hanging out on the street and dogs sleeping just outside the hotel door. This hotel is located just in front of the Teatro Massimo, which we later learned is a place where kids like to hang out. We got a room with a window to a noisy ally, good thing the windows and shutters blocked off the noise. The first thing that we noticed was the awfuly old and not-so-clean wall to wall carpet and the tiny shower, Hard to believe this hotel is rated 4 stars. On the positive side I should say that the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is abundant and very good.

Outstanding Hotel Service

5 out of 5
by from Orange Australia
Posted Jun 11, 2015
Pros: The Staff - helpful in every way.
Cons: A lift to help the porter carry the luggage up and down the stairs!
Location: Easy trips to Monreale and the beach. Lots of interesting fruit, meat, vegetable, fish and clothing markets within walking distance.
Location opposite the Opera House in the middle of the old city provides the ideal point for the museums, markets and grand churches. Lots of places to eat in alleyways The best thing about the Hotel is the help given by Franseca, Janey and Paulina. Franseca and Janey tracked down our luggage lost by Alitalia and had it delivered to our Hotel.
