“A home, not a hotel room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

We stayed six nights and wanted more than a room with a bathroom. This suited very well and unlike other reviewers, we found there was adequate crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils for a reasonable stay. As a bedsit, it was quite spacious and included a setee and small dining table with space for four. Silvia was a delightful receptionist, waiting up for us when we arrived later than expected and making us fell really welcome. Wifi was adequate in strength for Skype, but worked netter with video turned off. Central location was excellent and instructions on finding it good. Also, it was well marked by a street sign and at the door.

This was just a one-nighter for me on the way to Messina.
The hotel was a bit tricky to find and I had to resort to the GPS on my phone.
I had a large room on the first floor, more like a suite. As others have noted, it's fine to have a kitchenette but not if there is no crockery, cutlery, kettle, pots etc.
The room was also quite dark as you couldn't open the windows fully to open the shutters.
They seem also to be concerned about crime as you needed three keys to get into the place (including your room-key).
Nice little trattoria across the street which I have reviewed separately

We booked a suite to be able to make a cup of tea using the kitchenette - no crockery, cutlery or pan/kettle. Unfriendly/unhelpful Nadia receptionist/other one was lovely and smiley. Dirty city with no tourist info centres

This accommodation is serviced apartments rather than a traditional hotel and would have been great for a longer stay. the apartment had an enormous sitting room and large bedroom with plenty of wardrobe and storage space.
the only issue we had was checking in when the reception was unattended (generally after 2.00pm and all day sunday), however a couple of phone calls we were checked in within 10 minutes

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

We booked 3 rooms for 3 couples here in October. Rooms were clean and spacious. Location is fairly good and central to many city sites. We had a problem with our first room due to a lack of a stand up shower. Only a hand wand was available for kneeling in the cramped tub. Management allowed us to change rooms but we sensed that this was not convenient for her as evidenced from the subsequent coolness in our treatment. Breakfasts were very good. Common area ambience was comfortable but a little dark and cramped. There is no full time staff so this is really an apartment setup. Staff is there only in the mornings. Later check ins require some negotiation with management. Rooms have very limited street views to other buildings. Curtains are always drawn.

Room Tip: Avoid the barrier- free room without a proper shower

We stayed for two nights in November 2012. The accommodation is large and secure. The suites consist of a large double bedoom, lounge with double sofa and easy chair small dining table kitchenette and full bathroom with bath/shower, bidet, wc and washbasin. All linen and towels provided. The unit was spotlessly clean and serviced daily. You have your own set of keys - so come and go as you please. Within walking distance of the old town, Catherdral and Politimi with lots of good restaurants close by. Prices are excellent and include breakfast which is in the ground floor reception area. Free Wi-Fi available and garage parking 15 Euro per day in the next street - 50 metres - come and go as you please. An ideal location for a stay in Palermo - much better than a hotel and at least half the price for the same quality.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in May 2012. Very spacious suite with large bedroom and bathroom plus the lounge area with small kitchenette. All kept in excellent condition and breakfast was also very good. Loved the area, being close to various touristy attractions. Also loved the fact that there were many restaurants very close by. Excellent value for money.
