“Don't do it”
Reviewed 27 June 2005

For a Holiday Inn, this one has got to be one of the worst I have stayed in. Very very disapointed. You expect a good corporate image with standard quality world over... I think they missed this one.
Rooms were an ok size, very out dated, thought we were in a time warp, cleanish, but because a lick of paint was required they felt shabby and unclean. For you tea and coffee lovers.... no makings for these in the rooms, no breakfast in bed, limited room service. The mini bar had two warm cokes and a bottle of water.... not great. Being a platinum member I expected better.
The restaurant breakfast is worth missing, macdonalds is next door!!!!
If they run out of food, it seems too much trouble for them to get fresh, breakfast staff very very unhelpful and lazy, except for (sorry can't remember his name)one older gentleman.
It is situated on the main A29(very busy) from the airport just outside Palermo, an experience trying to get in to it!! To get into town catch the 102 bus from the bus station down the road, its a long walk but simple enough.
I would only generally stay at holiday inns on business, this is the first and last for a pleasure trip. Be devils go local, I'm sure they can't be any worse.

My travel agent made a reservation for me at this hotel. For personal reasons I will not be able to use the booking. The hotel will not cancel my reservation even though it is for the middle on next month!
When I found this hotel on the internet there was no mention of not being able to canel.

Don't stay there! This hotel is not central to anything. We had to walk 1/2 mile to get to the closet train station, to catch a train to central station in Palermo. Restaurant was overpriced. Rooms were OK, but too noisy. Our room faced the main road so it was very noisy. We had no air conditioning, since it was only April, so the windows had to be opened. Overall, this made Palermo a bad experience.
