If you are looking for a friendly, design forward boutique hotel in the heart of Palermo, this is your place. Only 12 rooms with large windows and beautiful common areas. The hotel is only 18 months old and there is attention to detail in the every aspect of the design from the recessed lighting, to the furnishings, to the bathroom fixtures, to the glass box elevator. Unless a balcony is a high priority I recommend staying on the garden side. The entire outward facing wall is glass windows looking out on the private garden. The balcony / street side of the hotel can be loud during the day and especially at night with two bars/restos across the street. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, although perhaps not up on the happening night life scene for the jet set. A very nice breakfast is also a big plus. The one niggle I have was with the interior noise of the hotel. The beautiful ground floor to 5th floor open space design comes with a compromise. We could hear people talking loudly in the lobby or at the elevator while in our room. Not a problem for the early risers or non-siesta traveler, but not ideal for others. That said, ilum is a fantastic boutique stay with a hard to beat location. Welcome serenity in an often hectic city.
