“Uninspiring”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2006

Kind of 70-ies, uninspired, large, and not terribly clean. Caters to large groups, by the looks of it. In spite of a lot of flags not very proficient in English, but OK. Staff did not seem very interested.
We were stuck in Palermo close to midnight with a failed booking at another hotel, so we were happy to get a room, but we wouldn't stay there again. There are nicer hotels that are cheaper as well.

We stayed here for 6 nights in late March 2005 and it was not a happy experience. On the positive side the room was clean. On the negative side, the room was very unappealing - bare with metal furnishings of the sort you'd expect to find in a hospital. We had paid for a triple room which was in fact a twin with a camp bed, just about ok for our son but would have been very uncomfortable for an adult. The advertised air con was, we were informed, only switched on in the summer, luckily it wasn't very warm. The hotel is off a very busy road and the traffic (and people) noise was constant - not helped by having to have the windows wide open all the time. The breakfast was just about edible, in an austere dining room with stained tablecloths. The staff were diffident at best. To cap it all, on day four the hot water packed up and was still not working when we left. The staff took little interest in this and there was no evidence of anything being done to repair it. We had to fight for a reduction in our bill when we left and a small reduction was given with very bad grace.
I cannot imagine how this hotel got a 3 star rating. Steer clear.

We were staing in this hotel for 4 night in september 2002. The hotel is situated in a quite area close to city center. in a walking range to most of the city attraction. The room was large, airy and quite. the breakfast was enough and the staff very helpull.
