We were picked up from the airport for as little as 35 euros by a guy who seemed nice. Once arrived at the appartment we were surprised as it did not had the seaview as we expected when we booked it. Then he showed us another room with seaview, however the costs were 15 euros per night more. Thats scam number 1. Then he explained we needed to cancel the booking online as we took another room, however, the advert for this seaview room was still available for people during our stay. He also explained we had to pay up everything as its mentioned on the site, well its not. Its clearly stated that beach should be on 1 minute. Scam number 2, the beach was a nice little 90! minute walk or 30 minutes by bus!
In the room what we paid more for, was very noisy as they were renovating a building next to it. So goodbye balcony seaview. Internet was rubbish as it only worked in bathroom.
We decided to go away from there after one day and booked another hotel. He didnt wanted to give the money back as he was ''just a worker'' and that he ''already confirmed the stay to the tourist department''. Total rubbish.
The area looks like Sarajevo back in the '70s and its really not safe to walk around there.
One advise : DO NOT GO HERE!!
Book a nice hotel next to Mondello beach and for sure you gonna fully enjoy Palermo to the fullest.
