The obvious approach is up a dingy, dirty street, but once there it's fine. The location is actually very good - central. Despite the following comments it still is not a bad place to stay. The hotel is clean and well run. Wifi is minimal. At times it struggled to load google home page. Drainage in the bathroom is slow....

The room seemed to be a bit small but enough for 2 persons. Bathroom had a built in hair dryer but does not have hand soap or shampoo and conditioner. However, small and medium size towels were provided. There were extra pillow and blanket and small safe in the wardrobe. Tiny TV and air conditioner were also equipped. Staff are...

Central, courteous staff, lovely rooms! As other reviewers have pointed out, the hotel is in a really excellent spot for visiting the historic city centre. We were also fortunate enough to have a beautiful view over Palermo´s rooftops from the window in our room. The room itself was clean and well-appointed. We enjoyed the decor- particularly that in the downstairs...

This hotel is located steps from the Quattro Canti, prime location and walking distance to all the sites. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially one gentleman with blue eyes and curly hair (didn't get his name). If you're not going to stay here, definitely stay somewhere north of Via Vittoria Emanuele because I found the south side a bit...
