This is a beautiful old-style/colonial hotel well located in the city of Palermo for enjoying the restaurants and bars and sights and sounds and shopping! The room was huge and beautifully furnished with a lovely view (we were on the second floor). While we didn't eat in the hotel in the evenings (we went to recommended bars and restaurants -... More

I chose this location because it was closely situated to someone I was visiting and also because I trusted the Mercure name to equate a certain reliable standard of quality. Perhaps too I was too trusting, as I was totally let down. Fact is I stayed here twice, before and after a sojourn to more remote parts of Sicily. Both... More

We had an excellent stay in a large, comfortable and quiet top-floor room. However when we arrived we had been allocated the room immediately above the hotel entrance. It was a nicer room than the one we moved to, but the short time we were in it there was constant noise of traffic stopping and starting and mopeds buzzing past.... More

Most important for tourist who came to Palermo for 1st time like us, surely good location as well as comfort is priority to choose for the hotel. We found, Mercure Excelsior hotel offer such possibility, even exceeding our expectation (more the standard 4 stars!) since its room facility and hotel interior atmosphere are very fine too.

This hotel had very large rooms that were clean and comfortable. Even the bathroom was large. The bed was very firm and the pillows very soft – a great combination for me. The service staff were kind and helpful. The location was good. We “shared a taxi” from the airport and it was very inexpensive. While it was a fairly... More

We were on a small group tour. One member was given a room with no window, told no other was available. She was changed to another room next day, and that one had no working air conditioning. Our own room was not well laid out (few places to put your things once unpacked), and had a secretary directly in from... More

This is a comfortable hotel which is convenient for visiting the city. The rooms are clean. The restaurant serves international food. The menu was a little limited but the food was well cooked. Wifi was free but rather slow. The breakfast was buffet style there was a fairly good choice but there was a lot of sweet food.

We stayed here as part of a tour. We actually were there at the beginning and again at the end of the trip. The first room we had was quite dated with limited A/C. The 2nd room was fantastic - very large, comfortable, great A/C and bathroom. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great - large selection of... More
