Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

There was a damp smell all aroubd the hotel, the wooden floors were loose, cupboards were dusty and smelly, kitchen was very filthy, there was way better accommodation for the exact same price.. Pictures are deceiving... On the good side, the location is great

We stayed two nights in the hotel. It's location is great to stroll through Palermo, or run in the nearby parks.
They gave us a twin bed room which came in a little apartment style, living room.
The hotel is quite big and full during breakfast.
It is good and I would recommend it, nothing special but also nothing to complain.

When looking at the hotel I was not expecting too much, but surprisingly the hotel exceeded these. it is not a 5 star hotel, but for the price I've paid more than good.
The rooms are big and spacious, there is a bedroom, living room and kitchenette. The bed is very comfortable. Breakfast is basic but O.K. if you are not a big eater and demanding person.
Disadvantage was the view from the room : I looked at wall not further than 1 meter. A pitty but for a short stay not a big point.
