I have stayed in this hotel twice in the past 6 weeks and at least 4 or 5 times over the last 5 years. I go to Sicily in May June when it is cooler and again for the Santa Rosalia celebrations on the 14th / 15th July. This is my hotel of choice. The rates are now excellent and very competitive with the cheaper range of hotels around the station. So for very little more you get a first rate hotel. the airport bus into Palermo stops in the square outside the hotel. The Segesta bus ticket office is 20 yards down the road and their buses out of Palermo leave from outside. the Statione Centrale is a 20 minute direct walk / 1.30 euro bus ride downtown.
As a single traveller in May, I had a double room on the 8th floor with a balcony overlooking Piazza Politeama - perfect. In July I was allocated a single room with no balcony, but I just asked if I could have one, and they accommodated me with no problem - on the 10th floor. The view across Palermo was spectacular. The beds are very comfortable and clean. Some rooms are rather dark, but that is to keep the heat out.
Breakfast is very good with everything you would want. The place to eat ? Enzo's down by the station
The desk staff are courteous, speak excellent English and wil help in any way they can
