While the reception and mezzanine area have been subjected to the "Ibis Styles" jazzing up, the rooms have not (fairly plain and characterless), but this was a good choice hotel as I had a car during my Palermo stay.
The hotel has a little private car park immediately behind it, and I found a space both times I returned to it. It is within walking distance of the city centre (though not the most central) - around a 30 minute walk from Quatro Canti, overlooking the port and not within the ZTL. I was happy walking to and from the hotel after dark, and did not feel unsafe.
I only paid 55 Euros per night (room only, with Accor loyalty card) and reckon this was excellent value for money. Relatively quiet given the location, decent enough shower, fridge in room, working in-room safe, comfortable bed.
I was able to take advantage of the laundry room, hidden on the 1st floor - 9 Euros to wash and dry a load of laundry, including detergent, and the tumble dryer was particularly effective.
If you don't need parking, I'm sure there are more central and characterful hotels, but it did the trick for me.More
