    The hotel is conveniently located near the train station where there is a bus to/from the airport, so one can just walk to the hotel upon arrival in Palermo. We had an apartment (in a separate building around the corner) with a kitchen/dining room, bedroom, balcony, and a large bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the roof terrace was very good (though not included in our room rate) and there is a great view of the city. It's easy to walk from the hotel to many of Palermo's tourist attractions, like the Norman Palace and the cathedral.

    There was no hot water. Since we were there only one night we didn't call the reception to ask how to make it work, and fortunately it was summer so a cold shower is not so bad. Although the bathroom is very large the shower is so tiny, you can hardly move around in it and if you're overweight you may not be able to get in at all! I'm only 115 pounds and could hardly move around in it. Although not the hotel's fault, the view from the balcony of our apartment was awful. It's so trashy. It appears that one building beside the hotel is abandoned. However there are lots of buildings like this in Palermo, which is the one of the dirtiest cities I have seen in Europe.

    Superb

    The amount of space that our room(s) contained. Actually, we had a choice of two rooms to sleep in. One was very noisy, the other quieter. The main hotel had a magnificent roof terrace overlooking both the harbor and the western part of Palermo, with a bar and tables for food service.

    Was disappointed upon arrival to find that our room was in an annex around the corner from the main hotel. While the annex was noisy, but satisfactory, it was still removed from the main hotel concierge, bar and restaurant facilities. Our confirmation letter never mentioned this.

    We were treated very friendly and the staff was always helpful and caring. The rooftop café was excellent for long breakfasts not to mention the magnificent view on the town. Though the hotel did not provide a dinner possibility, the waiter at the rooftop café asked the cooks to bake us fresh croissants which were delicious. As our flight was delayed for many hours we were allowed to leave our luggage to the luggage room.

    Superb

    Very enjoyable stay for three days in a large room with high ceilings. Staff were excellent and answered our many questions about directions, restaurants, etc. The terrace overlooking the city is very lovely and a wonderful spot for breakfast or drinks in the evening. In fact, we spent almost every night there -- sampling Sicilian wines suggested by the knowledgeable sommelier/bartender. Location was very convenient for visiting the markets and seeing major historical sights.

    Our room was somewhat noisy -- on the street. Would have enjoyed fresh orange juice at breakfast.

    The staff were exceptional. Extremely pleasant, helpful and informative throughout our stay. From the front desk to the cleaners through to reception and the bar staff. A very calm, peaceful and professional environment.

    Stunning views of Palermo from the roof terrace. Good food and drink, but a bit pricey.

    Reception on the fifth floor and we were in a separate annex to the hotel 100 meters or so away. Up and down like a yo-yo to check in and check out and to use the bar or restaurant.

    Very convenient city centre location, a few minutes walk away from many of the sights. Conveniently just down the road from the Central Station. The hotel was quiet and comfortable and secure; we had a family room which was very spacious and airy. The roof terrace gave beautiful views over Palermo and was a lovely place to relax in the evening away from the bustle of Palermo.

    Fabulous

    We stayed in one of the apartments. Large and spacious, comfortable, located quite centrally. The terrace in the main hotel was fantastic and the food was very nice.

    Could have had better facilities in the apartment kitchen. There was no dishwashing liquid so not only did we have to buy some to do our dishes, but they were dirty when we arrived.

    Very good

    We booked a deluxe double and the size of room was fantastic.A small ballroom. High ceilings and full french doors. Walking distance to railway station. Beautiful views from roof terrace. Lovely and very helpful staff.

    Poor breakfast and a lack of hot water in the bathroom.

    The rooftop breakfast and dinner views were outstanding. Having an elevator was helpful.We had room 602 which was excellent for the location in the hotel. Our friends had room 601 which was nice to be adjacent. Location on a main street near the train station was very walkable.

    Our friends were in room 601 across the way, but it was located over the kitchen. They said it was noisy early in the morning and from 5 to midnight or later with kitchen clanging, tables scraping. One of them became sick, and with the noise morning and night, and only quiet mid day, they could not rest. In our opinion that room should only be assigned at a discount and with disclosure.
