My family and I stayed at the hotel during June 2014. We have two young children for anyone in a similar position. Our time at the hotel was very pleasant.
Although the area surrounding the hotel may be considered by some as as a little lively at night, we were not put off. We felt safe at all times. Even when walking back late at night.
The hotel is itself is nicely decorated. The paint is fresh. All parts of it that we saw which were accessible to members the public were kept clean.
Our bedroom was large, clean and well equipped. The only addition I might suggest is a kettle with tea and coffee making facilities but otherwise it was equipped to a high standard.
Breakfast was served by a very pleasant waitress. What was actually on offer was fresh and would satisfy even those with the largest of appetites.
All the staff at the hotel should be complimented for their manner and professionalism. In addition, they should be complemented on their patience with my with my broken Italian.
Lastly, the hotel was located approximately 10 to 15 minutes from the Piazza Politeama which is bonus and for those interested in taking a bus to Mondello then it is even closer to the Piazza Sturzo.
I would have no hesitation staying at the hotel again should I have the pleasure to visit Palermo.
