Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed here for one night during a two week trip to Sicily, arriving quite late in the evening from the airport then checking out next morning to catch the train to Cefalu. I thought the hotel was very pretty but a little tired in places, for example in our bathroom. It was a little noisy around midnight, sounded like a nightclub but quietened down after about an hour then seemed pretty quiet after that. Although we weren't there long enough to enjoy it, our room had a balcony overlooking a pretty garden area. The hotel seems like a good base for exploring Palermo but if you are planning to go to the station, please be aware that the 20 minute walk quoted is more like 30 minutes and we walked really quickly. Breakfast was good, lovely breakfast room and pleasant staff.

We had a corner room with balconies overlooking the square and the street. Lots of room. The decor was baroque and the ceiling very interesting! The staff were friendly and helpful, their recommendations for restaurants were very good especially since they were only a 'stones throw' away. The breakfast rooms were good and breakfast offerings were typical Italian.

We couldn't fault Hotel Joli when we stayed. The room was large for Italy and the staff were great. Only 1 block from the Main Street so not too much noise at night but close to everything you need. Good breakfast which consists mainly of pastries and theres a great little pizza restaurant across the road. We had a big balcony to hang the washing so I'd stay here again for sure.

Ok location while it's noisy at night as motorcars passed by. Poor internet. What pissed us was you could not lean against the bed cuz the mattress would slipped away! Overall the front desk was good as they answered all our questions with good details. However as I'm reviewing this hotel in general I'd NOT recommend it to future hotel seekers in palermo.

I chose the hotel because of a friend who had recommended it to me. I think we are not going to be friends anymore.
The only good point about the hotel is the address. Apart from that... rooms look like scenography of a cheap porn movie (but are clean to be honest), the house keeping keeps on screaming in the floors and making really annoying noises regardless the guests resting in their rooms, there was an alarm malfunction (alarm going on and off for two days), people hammering in the building aside (I suppose a hotel knows what's going on in its surroundings and warns its guests offering a discount for the time of ongoing works); the breakfast was just full of flour products, one hardly could get fresh vegetables or fruits...
In summary: noisy and shabby. Don't stay there

Due to an error on my part, two of us arrived in the Hotel Joli in early April to find that our rooms had not been booked. Nonetheless, they gave us the benefit of the doubt and put us in some extremely pleasant rooms in this small and friendly hotel.
The place has an old-style baroque appeal and the rooms are impeccably clean. The bathrooms, even the one in the small single room I had on a return visit, are spotless and function without a hitch.
Buffet-style breakfasts are more generous than is found in many of the smaller Italian hotels and there is a bar as well as a sitting room where you can use the hotel facilties to go online, although there is free wi-fi in your room, too.
The hotel is very conveniently situated and you can walk to many of the major sights, as well as being near enough to catch the bus to the airport or to other south-west Sicily attractions, such as Segesta, Trapani and Erice.
It is, I think, a family-run business and there is a concierge on the desk all night. When we had to make an extremely early morning departure for the airport, some food was put out as a stopgap breakfast.
And when my friend left her camera in the hotel room the hotel contacted us and sent it off promptly. Full marks for honesty and efficiency.

Room Tip: If you ask on the desk for a quiet room, they'll do their best to oblige. There is a lift, so ta...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our tour of Sicily. The location is excellent, an easy walk to attractions and restaurants. Other reviewers have referred to noise but we found that the double glazed windows meant that the limited night time noise was not a problem. The staff were welcoming and the breakfast fair for a city hotel. We would return again.
