Hotel del Centro3.0 out of 5.0

this place was possibly a 3 star 30 years ago. By today's standards not so sure. Basically you get a room with a bathroom that was tacked on decades ago. I'm not sure the bathroom has been updated since. I suppose it's functional but it is awful. The air-conditioning is controlled by the front desk so you call him when you're too hot and too cold. The beds are very narrow. Not a full (modern)single I suspect We've paid for two nights but we're out of here tomorrow. Let's hope we get a refund.
Due to this being an old hotel, we had a much larger bedroom than I was expecting. The bathroom was adequate, like most Italian bathrooms in Italian hotels. The hotel was very central for Palermo, not far from the central station. Staff very helpful, booking restaurants for us, etc. Breakfast, coffee made for you and good pastries and yoghurt, meat and cheese, etc. For a three star hotel it was very good value. Palermo is an amazing place, very reasonable to eat out and the ice cream is truly amazing! Visit Brioscia. Wonderful place to visit.
Don't be put off by the approach which is an unmanned entrance hall and an ancient elevator. But once up to the second floor the reception is friendly and fine. Our room was a beautifully tall- ceilinged room, but spoilt by the necessity to cram in an en suite shower room. Electrics were extremely ancient with only one socket with a large number of adaptors. But all was clean and it's really conveniently positioned. Breakfast was good with excellent coffee but they really could improve it by offering fresh fruit.
I stayed for a 4 night stay in this hotel in September and found all of the staff to be extremely friendly and hospitable. Upon arrival I had recently suffered a knee injury and they straight away offered to give me a room on the same level as the reception that was accessible via lift so I didn't have to use the stairs. They were always available to answer any queries and provide us with assistance. The hotel itself was in a great location only a few minutes walk from the central station (great for the airport coach) and also within walking distance of all of the main attractions in the old town, no more than around 15-20minutes from all of the main sites. the room we stayed in was pleasant and clean with air conditioning and a small balcony with a table and chairs. The breakfast in the hotel was delightful, not just your typical continental with a lovely selection of fresh local pastries, bread, cheese, salami, yoghurt and fruit. The hotel also offered a great deal to get to the Mondello beach with a coach picking us up from outside of the hotel and access to a section of the beach with a parasol and beds. I would highly recommend staying here for a city break to discover the beauty of Palermo. thanks to all the staff for helping us throughout our stay.
The hotel is good with a nice buffet style breakfast with pastry options, cereal, yoghurts and cannoli, although it varied a little each day. The coffee was great! Our room had a balcony overlooking the street which was really nice to be able to use. It is opposite a Lidl which is good to go and get snacks, drinks etc, especially if you miss breakfast. The wifi was poor and could be improved.
The hotel is in a very good location to visit the town. The staff is really very friendly, helpful and welcoming; they can manage the access by car in the ZTL area, where the hotel is located. Nice and clean room with great breakfast! Absolutely recommended.
The hotel is located in a great spot , easy to reach and near the historical, the staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was delicious, the only thing I would suggest is to add a minibar to rooms to keep some cold beverages foe when you return to the hotel
Just returned from a few days in Sicily ,,stayed at Hotel del Centro .. must say the we had a great experience . friendly staff .very central . clean room , good B fast .. I would stay in this hotel again when I go back to Palermo .
Short walk from the train and bus station and within walking distance of the shopping area and hop on hop off bus routes. Hotel is in an old building on the second floor with a lift. However it is not suitable for those having mobility issues as their are about 5 stairs to get up to the lift and a lip on the main security door to climb over. It is on the main road so some noise in front rooms but other rooms great. Rooms are large and comfortable with updated bathrooms. Air conditioning was noisy and could only be used with the light switch on. Breakfast was a good variety of foods and fresh coffee. Good view of the main road from the breakfast balconies. 24 hour concierge service is available and staff were very friendly.
We had one of the "econony" rooms which was great. Nice clean room with a fresh smell. The hotel is in an old very well kept building which gives the hotel a lovely character. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The location is great, walking distance to literally everywhere.
