I stayed or 5 nights as a solo traveller, I found that the service varied depending on what staff you encountered. My welcome wasn’t the best but everyone else I met following this was really helpful and friendly.
The bar is really beautiful and the staffs there were great. The room was not ultra modern but was fine and very clean, I enjoyed the historic feature like the wooden floor and the ceilings. I may be judging less harshly than others as I got quite a good deal through http://www.skoosh.co.uk I can imagine if you have paid a lot for the room you may be disappointed.
The hotel is in a great location if you enjoy walking around cities (which always makes it a bit cheaper) 5-minute walk to the Port, 5 minutes to the theatre Massimo and really near the Vucciria market. Definitely worth a look just off Via Roma is the Galleria D'Arte Moderna, which if you enjoy art is really worth a look; it gives you different perspective and great sense of the history of the city. My favourite were the beautiful painting by Michele Catti.
