We were a little nervous having read some of the reviews about the rough area surrounding the hotel. Having said that were a lot of glowing reviews too. We would like to add a glowing review because we had a fantastic 3 days in Palermo - helped greatly by staying at this hotel. Sure there are some poor areas on the hotel's doorstep but we never once felt at risk. The locals were all friendly and the neighbourhood was interesting because it wasn't too 'touristy'. The location is central so you can walk to most places. It's on the corner of one of the main streets so a little noisy - but this is a big city. What was a real surprise was that at night time the area turns into a busy and buzzy party area. All the bars open onto the pavement, live music, DJs - great atmosphere that goes on quite late/early! So if you like that thing, this is the place to stay.
The hotel is modern but not sterile. Nicely furnished rooms, comfy beds and linens and great shower. We were upgraded to a suite so I can't comment on the size of the standard rooms, but the suite was fab.
The breakfast buffet was the best we had all week in Sicily. Everything you could imagine - all of the highest quality.
Finally the service from the reception staff was exemplary. They recommended some great restaurants - some we never would have found in the guide books too.
If you go to Palermo, stay at this place. Last ip if you are still reading…..
The outdoor rooftop bar in the main department store (via Roma). Excellent Negronis. We discovered this all by ourselves so were very chuffed!
