Traffic in Palermo is a nightmare making it difficult and time-consuming to find this hotel. It is located in an office building on a shopping street. There are stairs to the tiny old fashioned elevator, then up to the 6th floor for reception. Staff was very nice and so was our room which was beautifully decorated. We wound up in a room facing the street. The overnight traffic noise with buzzing scooters was continual making for a long sleepless night. Choose an inner room to avoid this problem.
We were told the wireless internet access while available, doesn't go through the walls because of their thickness. However, there is a desk area and a computer for guests' use.
The outdoor verandah which is used for breakfast, afternoon drinks and snacks is lovely. The views are beautiful, a panorama of the city with mountains in the distance. Be aware it requires 2 flights of stairs to reach this area, no elevator!
We found the city of Palermo to be dirty, smelly, visible dog excrement and littered with trash in big piles and so unappealing that we left after one night. This is really not a tourist city as there are few, if any, sights to visit. As for dining it seems all the hotel guests were sent to the same restaurant as we saw them there. It was a dark and scary walk to and from the hotel which clinched our decision to leave the following day, three days ahead of time.
