Stayed just after Christmas good value , id imagine in the summer the roof terrace would be amazing,the mountains in the distance made a great back drop with breakfast, which was basic but on the whole good value there were some issues with the shower after a couple of days when the water pressure dropped to a trickle and we lost the hot water but over all no major complaints we were 10 minutes from the train station and well located for exploring, and they picked us up from the airport for 40 euros which was handy

Spent 4 nights early Jan 2014 at this hotel in historic town. Location great for exploring on foot or catching buses elsewhere. Staff v helpful, room was lovely, spotlessly clean and serviced, excellent temperature control, noise proofing, en suite facilities, including good lighting in bathroom. Bedroom lighting dim (v minor issue), shower rather weak at best. Did not eat in, but they have a lovely roof terrace dining area. Overall, loved it and highly recommend.

Well situated near the train/bus station and easy to find. Well situated for shopping and sightseeing. The breakfast was very good, the service excellent and the breakfast/dining room is situated on the top floor with spectacular views of the city. Our room while facing the main street, was quiet with the windows closed and noise was not an issue. The beds are very comfortable and the room large and very clean. The reception staff are very helpful and offer whatever information you require. Would stay here again when in Palermo. Very good value for the price.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 10 year old daughter and my wife's parents. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and hospitable. Breakfast was great and although we were there in winter time the views from the roof were stunning. All good.

We booked a room here in the hopes that we could stay somewhere in Palermo that was central. We really just wanted a hotel that was clean and safe. The Ambasciatori Hotel is actually a very sweet hotel, small and bright with very friendly staff. The terrace has unbelievable views of Palermo, and the breakfast was fantastic. We'd definitely recommend this. It's not luxury and not fancy, but it's really well-kept and charming with a great staff.

We stayed at Hotel Ambasciatori Palermo Sicily mid December 2013. The front desk and other staff were very hospitable and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, close to some very fine restaurants. Breakfast is served on the top-floor which has an excellent roof terrace with breathtaking views over the ancient city. We are lucky enough to have traveled a lot and have had good service in the past. I can safely say that overall Service at the hotel is good and definitely value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms are a bit small but comfortable

Went here for my 21st birthday. The terraced building along the main street of Palermo was not obvious at first, nor did it look like your every day 'hotel'. Inside we were greeted by reception desk staff that were all very kind and spoke good English. The hotel has a few floors, a winding staircase and an old elevator (of which has great character to an obviously older building). Coming to the door on your floor, you enter a quaint and cost hallway that leads to several large rooms.
The bed were fine to sleep in, we used the safe and had no problems with it.
Breakfast up on the terrace was beautiful and you have the option of sitting indoors or outside with your croissants and other continental breakfast foods.
Again, I'll say the staff were very helpful. They helped us with the wifi (not always stable) and had maps showing us the best places to go. They also helped us pick out some of the best places to eat and, with their directions, found a nice little place to eat our first night there.

The only let down was the fact our small balcony/window was on the side of the building giving a us a sight of a building not in use and rather dirty, complete with a dark alleyway and brick wall. So, not much of a view but it was fine for a smoke. If you want a good view, just pop up to the terrace with is open all the time.

They were also very nice about getting us a couple of drinks late at night, and one night when the weather turned and it was getting late, they very nicely let us order in a pizza to eat on the terrace.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!
