Prior to getting there, shuttle to center of town was to be provided (NOT running the whole time there.) it was very warm outside and NO air conditioning. 2 pipe system - either heat or air and it was too warm in the room. Never anyone at the front desk and not interested when we found someone. When we got...

Palermo has a bit of trouble with taxis and transport as it easy for the unaccustomed to be duped but our stay got off to a wonderful start by using the Hotel's limo and driver service. For just a little more than a taxi we were straight to the Hotel for a fabulous 2 night stay. It should have been...

We were only in Palermo for 2 nights and couldn't get a sense of how good a location this was, but the hotel itself is stunning and our 1 bedroom suite looking over the sea was so pretty and had lots of character and very clean. The first room we looked at was stuffy and humid so we upgraded our...

The hotel is in the traditional style. The staff are very professional and courteous. It could proabably do with an update but there is a certain charm to its "faded glory". The dining room where breakfast is served is very formal and grand overlooking the gardens and bay...ideal for a wedding! The restaurant is in a beautiful room with a...

Grand hotel with spectacular location just outside Palermo. Slightly dated, needs TLC, but you can live with that given the grandness of the location, common rooms and service. Breakfast is sumptuous. Please book the seaview rooms and you wake up to magical views. Very pleasant to walk around the gardens and along the piers. Wifi worked.

I have been here for two days with my family. Nice place. Clean. Nice garden and superview. Relatively expensive for the quality offered. Old style and "passè" as style. You can see the place and the service - albeit OK and cordial - has seen better times. Out of the main city centre. Requires taxi to move around. 15-20 euro...
