4/10 Fair

Disappointing 3 day stay. First room was not well cleaned. They did give us a different room after the first night. Overall the property needs to be updated as it is worn down. The Wi-Fi sucked in both rooms we stayed in. Using the parking garage on site was a pain and we opted for street parking after the first night.

Great location, welcoming service
Perfect location to explore the city, good non touristy restaurants around the hotel. The area is residential but steps from the touristy area. Our room was spacious, nothing upper scale but just right. The internet wasn’t reliable, lots of times wouldn’t work, specially late night or in the mornings. Staff is so friendly, helpful and accommodating, if you ask for recommendations they will share so many good tips! Monica at the front desk was dear to us, she gave us so many tips on what to do and all recommendations were spot on including day driving trips. We didn’t like the breakfast, not freshest ingredients and poor presentation, but the waitress was very nice. Parking worked out well, they don’t have a lot of spaces but had availability for us, even let us keep the space until late on check out date. We were not recognized as gold gold members, so no perks. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and would recommend it.

Stylish hotel in central but quiet location. Staff were excellent - very friendly and any issues were addressed quickly and positively. Onsite parking a plus. A great choice for visiting the unique city of Palermo.

Staff especially Bruno were most helpful. We were given a room for disabled people on arrival so we asked for a room with a bath to save any embarrassment. We got this after two days. Hotel is well situated in a quiet residential area within easy walking distance of the city centre. Ample restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk. .

6/10 Good

The Wi-Fi at the hotel was poor. The Wi-Fi did not function for most of our stay and when we we were temporarily able to connect the connection was short lived. The staff tried to get it to function better by restarting the server but were unable to get it to function well.
