First time in Palermo and this was a perfect place to stay with parking close by, nice rooms and breakfast and an easy walk to the main things to see in the city. Palermo is fascinating place with large number of historic buildings.

We stay there 4 nights with all the family. Rooms are very clean and quite large. For winter time, there is might a lack of light since the building configuration doesn’t allow large windows. Location is quite convenient and for those who don’t like walking there is a City free

This hotel is near the historic Felice gate. Great access to do many important sites in Palermo. We walked to all of the places and restaurants in our itinerary. Add a beautiful breakfast and I found this hotel exceeded my expectations.

Bonsoir, Brigitte. The address Via Butera 35/47, 90133, Palermo, Sicily, Italy. TripAdvisor reviewers rank it #9 of 98 Palermo hotels. A free tram/bus that circulates amongst the main attractions, and stops a block from the hotel, at the port/gate adjacent to the waterfront. Search on any Web browser the following: Hotel Porta Felice. That will provide the phone number, website, and email address. TripAdvisor does not allow me to provide you directly with that type of information. I was thrilled with the service and ambiance at this 4-Star boutique hotel. A botanical gardens is about 3 blocks from the hotel. Enjoy your visit to Palermo. I certainly did!☺

What is the cheapest way to get from the airport to the hotel?
No...there is no parking garage. You park on a narrow crowded street.

Does the hotel also provide lunch and dinner? If so what is the cost?
Noreen: As part of a tour group, the hotel did offer evening meals, but that may have been a special event. Check the hotel's website for any meals provided. There is, however, a fabulous breakfast buffet. Too, many excellent restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a supermarket about three blocks away. Fresh fruit, cheese and yogurt are an excellent alternative to higher cost restaurant meals.

We just walked over to the beach. It didn't require any tickets at all. It's a rocky beach with grassy fields above and about a block and a half. Perhaps there was some other beach we didn't know about
