Firstly, I have to disagree with the previous review (Elizabeth), We stayed in Palermo at the Potra Felice for 5 nights and found the city to be full of intrigue, culture, history and vibrancy. Yes, from the outside the buildings do look unkempt but clearly this is not the case on the inside...Any door you saw open had elegant and elaborate interiors....Palermo is simply a very old city and different in culture. The hotel is stylish and immaculate, the balconies which open onto the main street are framed by beautiful fully working shutters and full length French doors. Palermo is a wonderful city which reminded me of Rome....The driving is crazy, the food beautiful and the variety of things to do in West Sicily is amazing....beautiful beaches, Greek Temples, ancient churches adorned with gold and amazing restaurants/cafes every step of the way.
Our room was large and comfortable, fresh linen, marble bathroom and quality complimentary toiletries
....Our departure was early on our final day and the hotel were more than happy to arrange an early breakfast for us (my only negative point is the slow service in clearing tables)
