My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in October. We live in Israel and were on a week-long organized tour of Sicily, and we were satisfied with our stay in this hotel.

Staff are friendly, but it is not a hotel to stay if you wish to enjoy central Palermo. I will only recommend this hotel as a business hotel. The staff are not really aware of the organised trips available. The breakfast is not really appetizing.

Pristine hotel. Safe, clean, with an immaculate pool. Great transfer service to mondello beach. Domenico was very helpful and knew allot about sicily and could recommend places to visit. Highly recommend this hotel but Palermo itself feels unsafe Wifi was poor.

Old rooms..bad food..nasty attitude of the staff-we wanted to have a Kidush on Shabbat and the life guard did not wanted us to have it on the roof despite the fact that everything was coordinated before and to to stop the religous ceremony-I almost hit the antishemic bustard..there is nothing to do nearby the hotel-bad location...very bad deal

Room was standard city block style - no balcony, but the windows open - we had a sea view. Pool is very deep and swim caps are required. Quite a long way from the centre if you don't have a car. Breakfast was good. Helpful staff.
