  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The location was fantastic, very close to main points of interest, bars, restaurants and shops, but sleep was undisturbed. The are some very interesting local markets just around the corner. Room was very clean, bed comfortable, fridge an very welcome extra. Good selection of food for breakfast.

    Good service but poor air conditioning

    Bit frustrating the air-conditioning was not working in the middle of summer in Sicily. Blew out air that was not cold. To be fair I did not let reception know as we arrived at 2am and just wanted to sleep. Service was friendly overall.

  • 6.0.Good

    The building is run down and the original entrance is blocked due to building work. The mini bar fridge was in the wardrobe , empty and didn't work. The window looked out to an inside wash space with air conditioning units so it was impossible to have the window open.

    An excellent, reasonably priced hotel in the heart of Palermo! Very helpful staff--we used them to get taxis to various places, as well as information on locations, and restaurants---excellent one: Ferro de Cavalho. Horse shoe in English.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The desk and all service was excellent. They may have been low on rooms when we first arrived (we were two days there, five days away, and two days again before leaving) so they gave us the "suite" those first 2 days--which was not as pleasant as the room the second time..."Suite"--multi-level, stairs, no phone, and a noisy bird or parrot outside, across the way. But the desk helped at every stage. Be sure to check out the street next to theirs, Via Venezia, and our favorite restaurant in Palermo, Ferro de Cavallo ("horseshoe")

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great location, really good service, clean rooms

    The hotel is in an excellent location in old palermo. The hosts Guiseppe, Nicola were both excellent and really helped us out. The room was cleaned nicely and the towels replaced on time. They made sure that we know the area and gave us good sensible advice without pushing anything on us. The breakfast was simple and yet plentiful for what you need for the first meal of the day. Cheese, ham, toast, coffee, juice, cereal and desserts were there everyday for breakfast. The wifi works as well. Overall I highly recommend the place to all who want to come to Old Palermo. However don't expect 5 star amenities as its not a 5 star hotel, it does the job well and better than what it's actually rated.
