“choose this hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013

excellent hotel!! we stayed for 4 days and we had an excellent stay!! the rooms are big, very clean and with an excellent hot shower. the only problem in the bathroom is that it's a little bit cold (we were in winter). the breakfast is very good (but don't expect salads). The best thing is the location, close to the central bus station (you have bus from the airport to the central bus station) and close to the main tourist sights in Palermo.

Yes, this hotel is centrally located in the old part of Palermo. It's within five minutes walk away from the Train Station. It's located on the 2nd floor and it gives you an opportunity to sample a rather ancient lift. The hotel is staffed 24 hours and so, in the evening, you would have to press the door bell to be buzzed in. The highlight of this hotel would have to be its generous breakfast. It's truly good and that, you could even request for a fresh espresso! On the 2nd floor, the hotel is further split up into its own ground floor and first floor. Should you have heavy and cumbersome luggage, if possible, request for its ground floor because the narrow & jig jag nature of the stairs made it rather awkward to make your way up there. Also, if you are a solo traveller such as me, and if you are placed in Room 26, you will find it to be small with no view (looking inwards and thus, quiet). That being said, the Wifi strength in the hotel is rather good. The bathroom is large and it has good hot water pressure. The only downside is that the mattress for the single bed is thin. Still, that doesn't deter me from having an adequate sleep. There's a heat pump in the room and it manages to take the chill off but it's not very effective considering that the ceiling is VERY high. Apart from that, it's worth considering to stay in Palermo Central.

You can't beat the price for what you get. I had a room for one. It was small, but that's OK. The shower was very small, but it worked well. The hotel has an elevator, but if you have a single room, you may have to walk up a set of stairs after you take the elevator to the hotel. Keep this in mind if you have mobility issues. The breakfast is very good. The people who work there are very helpful. One man in particular was very helpful. Ciao, ciao.

Here is a hotel which puts you right in the middle of Palermo on the Via Roma with easy access on foot to the major tourist attractions, more restaurants, cafes and bars than you can ever visit and all at a price which makes it excellent value for money.

To be clear, it's a budget hotel, clean, well run with a good breakfast included to set you up for the day. You may find the rooms and the bathrooms a little basic but this hotel is real Italy and I enjoyed my 5 night stay there. It can be noisy both from outside and within the hotel but you have the sense of being close to what's important for any visit. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear-plugs!

Easy to get to from the airport. Don't bother with a taxi, just take the bus or train to the Central Station and the hotel is a 5 minute easy walk up the Via Roma on the left. You can then use the money you saved for that first glass of Nero d'Avola and a plate of freshly made pasta!

When I go back to Italy's fifth biggest city, I will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Asking for a room away from the Via Roma might be quieter but this is a vibrant, bustling Italian ci...

We booked a double room for three nights. The hotel is situated a few hundred metres from the Stazione Centrale (train station), so couldn't be easier to find. The room was nice - high ceiling, balcony, good-sized bathroom etc. and was very quiet considering it's location on Via Roma. The desk staff (esp Nicolo) were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent and came with fresh coffee made to order. All in all I couldn't recommend this place more highly, so if you're looking for clean, comfortable, well-situated accommodation in Palermo on a budget, this is it.

Room Tip: Room 6 - "matromoniale" is a nice room for a couple.

Stayed here for five nights whilst attending a symposium and doing some sightseeing. Hotel well located and very central for all places we wanted to go. Slight mistake at first as we had not made twin beds requirement clear, but immediately sorted by very pleasant staff, so on second night we had a junior suite. Huge room and bathroom and as it looked onto a side street, the noise was not too bad. The hotel is in a charming traditional building, very clean, good decorative order. Breakfast was just lovely in a delightful breakfast room, cold meats, a vast range of delicious pastries and fresh coffee, again served by very pleasant staff. Good value for money and certainly recommended.

Room Tip: As others have said, go for a room looking into the courtyard or overlooking a side street, as far a...

The hotel is beautiful and very well located in one of the main avenues of Palermo. From there you can go walking to most of the important places in the city. The breaskfast is very complete and the attention was great from the first moment we arrived there. We would really go back.
