Other reviews mentioned the overly gilt decor, which I found charming. It is over the top with frills, and the rooms are dark and small, but comfy enough. Front desk staff is unhelpful but okay. No robes, cheap toiletries and cramped bathrooms make this place feel like a 2 or 3 star at best. Having said that it is okay...

Terrific location in central Palermo. Near great shopping, cool wine bars, good restaurants, and both main theaters. Lovely public and private rooms. But there are two negatives: (1) To get wi-fi, you have to go down to the lounge and pay for it in 1-hour intervals. Seems to me a 5-star hotel should provide it free in your room. (2)...

Excellent service. The staff took extra measures to make sure we were comfortable. However, it was surprising that a 5 star hotel did not have free wifi (charged 6.50 euros a day). The hairdryer and toileteries were definitely not 5 star. Watery shampoo+body wash and motel-like hair dryer. Breakfast could've definitely been a little better. The variety reminded me of...

Excellent position: it’s easy to visit the town on foot, in about 1.5 kilom. you can find everything. rooms nice and comfortable, cabled internet, gold and mirrors everywhere.

This was a very convenient location near the theater and opera house, with many restaurants, cafes, etc. in close proximity. The street it fronts is busy but not terribly loud. Nice Palermo street views from balcony. The room, however, was quite small; we could barely open our luggage and walk around, and although bathroom was okay size, shower was tight....

It's not worth the money or I could say just because the rooms are decorated with a lot of gold paint.. Does not make it a 5 star hotel. Service fair, breakfast as good as most 3 star hotels!

My first visit to Palermo I stayed with my wife at this lovely Hotel in the centre of Palermo. We found this to be a great location, very central and close to attractions and transport. Very good staff quite efficient and friendly. Good breakfast but don't drink the premade dishwater coffee, order a fresh coffee and the breakfast staff happily...

This is my second time here. The rooms are a good size. Beds are a litte hard but not too bad. Good air conditioning which is a treat. Breakfast in the morning is good with nice variety. Staff are friendly. Old world charm and very good value. Close to main shopping areas and also to some good restaurants. No complaints...

The gorgeous period decor of this hotel was for us, part of the pleasure of visiting Palermo. Our room and bathroom were lovely, spacious and comfortable and the Buffet Breakfast delicious and generous. It is well located, so we were able to walk there from the airport bus and also roam about the old city. The staff were all very...
