Recent guest reviews

Stayed in this hotel for just one night. Good hotel, reasonable roooms and good food. Nice swimming pool where they have put enough beds to relax, swim and spend your time! Nice panoramic view in the room

Overall a very basic hotel The reception is very busy most of the time due to cruise passengers arriving they could not really even sort out laundry for me The room itself is outdated and very basic but the views are fantastic the facilities in the room are minimal The breakfast is also not extraordinary with minimal choices The gym I could not work out how to switch on the machines I was told at the swimming pool will open in June but was a bit surprised to find out and they will also switch on the air conditioning for the hotel only in June which was a bit of a misery It is located away from the city centre which is a good 20 minute walk

I have stayed 2 nights at the hotel. Its a biggish hotel, about 10-15 minutes drive from Palermo city center, clean and efficient. Rooms are spacious and clean. It is located in the middle of nowhere, with nothing to see or do in the immediate vicinity, with but one eating option only. If all you need is a place to stay the night, its OK. Because its size and location (and I guess price) it serves as a favorite hotel for groups. We were unfortunate enough to share it with 2 school groups - early teens, and the noise level and total chaos were unpleasant, to say the least. Breakfast - mediocre minus... no wholewheat anything, no fresh vegetables or fruits, as if 2018 and the health trend has not yet arrived.

I spend two nights in the hotel which location is not friendly for guests without their own transportation. The room on seventh floor was quiet but with a very poor internet. Breakfast was very basic. Next time I will look for another hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for a family holiday for about 4 days. We were very pleased. The staff was polite and helpful. The service is excellent and the place is clean and well maintained and the rooms are comfortable. Thank you very much to the entire team, and especially to Alexandra, who made a great effort to be happy with our vacation. I definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Location: Location is terrible, in the middle of a run down area. Far from the city. Hotel is located in a run down area and far from the city centre. Hotel does not provide any transfers/shuttle bus to the city centre. Staff speak little English, so we struggled to communicate with them/. Staff also seemed reluctant to help when asking for some more information on the area. However there is a guy who works at the bar who is very friendly and helpful. We had two rooms, one was good but the other had a very stiff door which needed to be slammed shut and forcefully opened. The air conditioning in one of the rooms was also very noisy. Rooms have nice views.

This hotel is totally dissapointment! I spent more than 70 euro for night of the most terrible room ever. Bulding was fantastic but room was looking like less than 1 star hotel trash room. Everything was so old and dirty. On TV dust was maybe for year. Also moquette was super dirty. Parking place was closed and I had to leave car in yard which was really full. I spent almost half hour waiting for car place. Maybe this hotel has great servise in other rooms but with my experience I dont advice this to nobody.

I stayed 10 days with a friend in this hotel as price was good and it had a roof top pool while also being in the port area of Palermo an not too far from the city center. Yes there are things not going well. We changed 2 rooms before getting a reasonably cold room with a fridge that worked and yes I had to ask reception for 2 days before they did anything but in the end all ok. We are very close to North-Africa here so some patience is needed. The pool was good although in the beginning I could not understand why they close the pool for 2,5 hours in full afternoon but it was everywhere like this just to give staff also a break which I find a very nice way of thinking. The view over Palermo and the sea is amazing ! Rooms are tired but OK. I asked if there was a shuttle to the centre but reception said no although I hear the manager here saying there is, make up your mind ! Breakfast was very good with great choice. All in all I liked it there and would stay here again. Wifi was also very good. To the city centre was not that far, around 20 minutes walk and people complaining about the area, why ? All were very friendly there and had some restaurants and sops and a beach 3 minutes away ! Yes a lot of high rise apartments and bit dirty but again this is Sicily ! I would also love to thank the Italian people that even though they all need to mae a living as well they seem to care for the refugees there as I have seen many gestures of humanity there ! Thanks very much for a nice stay !

A big hotel with a classy entrance but our room was outdated and the airco made so much noise we had to turn it off while sleeping. The hotel service was very dissapointing, we had to ask everything since they did not give us any information about the hotel. Breakfast was nice, a lot of choice, lots of sweets. From the hotel to the centre of palermo is a 35min walk. During that walk you see a lot of palermo that you don't want to see.

Wonderful Hall and Hall. Stunning views. Super Breakfast. Leave the room still to be desired, to be restored and removed from the carpet. Hotel with antimafia history with young staff looking to grow and improve.
