The hotel has an excellent location both for touring Palermo's historical (and very run down) center and the more sophisticated area around Via Della Libertá. Also Via Roma with its shops is a couple of blocks away.
The overall impression of the hotel is very good and it does live up to its four star rating. The only drawback is the lobby. You need to go down a flight of stairs since it is in the basement. This can give you the wrong impression of the hotel for it is dark and small.
The rooms, on the other hand, are super spacious and the bathroom is very modern. We had a double room with a huge king size bed. Even though the window overlooked a sort of small inside garden, it was quite welcome sinc ewe could sleep with the windows open (we dislike AC) and avoid the noise of a SAturday night on the nearby Politeama square.
The decoration is minimalistic but pelasant and elegant and everything was totally clean.
Breakfast was good although more fruits could be added.
Personnel was attentive and corteous. Wi fi is paid but you can use their two complimnetary computers on the hotel lobby.
