Great location in central Palermo. Hotel is beautiful and inside courtyard charming. Needs to improve breakfast - served canned fruit and packaged bread. Service staff lack warmth and interest to help. Especially bad are the restaurant wait staff. For a hotel of this size, it needs a doorman and more than one elderly bellman, especially since entrance is weirdly located in an alley.

We stayed here for 3 nights, arranged by our tour operator, Esplora Travel. I was unwell for some of the stay, and was grateful to be in the large comfortable room. The common areas with the huge semi-outdoor seating area in the centre, are magnificent and impressive, and the hotel is in a very convenient central location. Staff were pleasant and helpful, on the whole. My gripes would be about the bathroom and to a lesser extent the breakfast. Our bathroom was tiny and cramped with a leaking shower and nowhere to put our toiletries. This compared poorly to the spacious bedroom. The bathroom could easily be remodelled to include a larger shower cubicle (which doesn't leak). The breakfast was a bit limited and haphazard, and it was difficult to order hot drinks.
