“One week stay”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Great central location

Excellent value for money. Do not be put off by the approach to the hotel, the inside is very clean and comfortable giving excellent value for money.

Neighbourhood appears "rough", but we walked happily through the streets, never felt threatened and found some excellent local restuarants and bars for the evening.

Staff very effficient and helpful.

It can be noisy over the weekend nights - I think there is club somewhere in the close vacinity (but could never pin point). Having said that, whilst there was a low level background muisc noise in the bedroom it in no way disturbed us or stopped us from sleeping.

Shower cubicle could be said to be small - but there again I am big - it was perfectly adequate and did the job.

Breakfast buffet good and plentiful.

Inernet access was good

Would recommend and stay agian if we revisit Palermo.

My wife and I found this hotel great. The location is close to sights and the train/bus station. The staff were helpful, breakfast was good; the Internet worked fine. For the price, the hotel is good value.

The location of this hotel is perfect, no more than 15 minute walk from most of the markets and piazzas. The area does look a bit rough but never feels threatening. The staff are very friendly and helpful and extremely accommodating. The hotel is kept immaculately clean. We only had a couple of niggles with this hotel. I felt the shower cubicle was a bit small and the tv was tiny with only Italian terrestrial programmes available (petty things considering what we paid). The breakfast is enough to fuel up. This hotel is excellent value for money and I strongly recommend it.

To be honest, I was not that excited about my stay in Palermo! But... even if the small street where it is located is not so attractive, once you are in the hotel, everything changes! We stayed on the first floor right above the bar and it was a very nice suite. Everything was clean and fresh and the breakfast was the best included one I have ever had with fresh bread, ham and cheeses. The best part for me was the different coffee choices you have, from cappuccino to espresso!! The manager was also very helpful at all times and I will definitely go back there if I had the chance to visit the city again! Ps. Quite well located from the main square and everything is walking distance from there! Thank you!!!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, you should ask for a room on the left side of the building

hotel columbia really nice hotel.spotless rooms,comfortable beds. ten minutes after checking in we were brought cocktail drink and pastries to our room as a welcome,what a nice touch. lovely breakfast,lot of choice.staff friendly and helpful. the sort of hotel that makes you feel at home and cosy to come back to after a day out sightseeing. good location,near the main crossroads to get to everything but down a turning away from noise of traffic. will tell anyone going to palermo to stay there.

The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. They were attentive to detail and the rooms were cleaned every day. My 4 nights stay was very enjoyable. I strongly recommend this hotel. The staff spoke English and French. The rooms had air condition and the bathroom was spacious and clean. Breakfast was continental but more than adequate.
