“Nice staff, goods rooms and ok location”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The staff was very nice, the rooms are of good size and everything seemed to be new (we stayed in a king size), the room and the overall place was pretty clean, good breakfast. Lots of restaurants and bars a few blocks away.
The location is not great, full of construction sites and garages, a bit noisy during the day (due to constructions) and a bit dark and isolated at night (not that great if you're planning to go back walking late at night), the wifi was ok.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back not street facing as they're noisy. Ask reception for a taxi phone num...

As I have stated in title, hotel is at good location, 5-10 minutes by foot to Palermo Hollywood bars and restaurants and 10-15 minutes to Palermo Soho day/night life.

Rooms are nice, clean, new furniture, nice bathroom.

There is no view (you can choose backyard view, which I recommend - quite) or street view, which i don’t recommend due to possible noise.

Breakfast is called "American breakfast". it’s horrible. hotel doesn’t even have a kitchen. Breakfast consists of bakery products, cereals, industrial juice from canister, water, ham, cheese, cookies, yogurt, butter, honey, fruit salad, coffee, milk and that’s it! You can’t have hot meal! Nope, because its American buffet! :)

If breakfast is important to you, consider not to choose this hotel.

Staff was really great, helpful any time of day/night.

I stayed at this hotel in October. The staff were *very* helpful and kind. The breakfast, included in the price, is really good and plenty. Fun happy hour scene there, too.
I would definitely recommend this place.

The Howard Johnson Inn Palermo is very clean and modern, but there are better options in Palermo for the price. The location is on the fringe of Palermo on the busy Niceto Vega. A few blocks to the east there are a number of modern hotels with more amenities closer to the good restaurants and bars.

Very comfortable rooms . Not too large but well diesigned and furnitured .
Location perfect for day taxi trip to work places and ( bit long ) night walk to Palermo .
Accueil should be improved . Friendly , young but bit unexperienced people .
" Positive Experience "

Room Tip: Only one elevator , but mot many guests . Lower is better .

My cousin and Istayed here during the second week of January of 2013. It's a great clean hotel, I was very impressed with it. It's not your regular "HOJO" that we have in the U.S. the location of this property is great within walking distance from everything in the neighborhood of Palermo. I was really impressed with the staff, the young gentelman Andy and the young ladies who work the front desk as well. They try to help you as much as they can and do a superb job at it. One of nicest hotel staffs I ever ran into. It was a real plesure staying here, I will defintley go back.

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel just one night, as we needed a last minute sleepover place in Palermo. We got an excellent deal on booking.com and were very pleasantly surprised When we arrived. The girl at the reception was very professional AND very friendly. The room was in a business style, with a big comfortale bed (we had a king bed), tastefully decorated and -very important-very quiet! Exactly what we needed after 1 week of sleeping in more expensive yet much less comfortable hotels in Uruguay.
The only issue for some people might be the location-the subway is quite a walk (20min) but there are plenty of very good restaurant and a few shops to get grocery and other basics in immediate vicinity of the hotel.
