                Good value for money.

                I booked this hotel as near to train station was it wasn't really. You couldn't have walked there, def a bus ride but only 10 mins on bus. Room was very basic and bathroom really smelt of drains. Area was ok but like most of Palermo, it's a little run down. I would recommend staying in Mondello as much nicer place and alot more restaurants.

                The room was spacious and well equipped. We appreciated the free breakfast and free parking. Easy walking distance to tourist sites.

                Everything in the room was very clean except for the floor.

                Close to the old town.

                The breakfast was poor and a large garbage basket was very close to the place where the food came from. It was not a pleasant view for eating breakfast.

                Good parking space, very good shower and lovely staff. They let us check out late and that helped a lot. Good location to explore Palermo and around if you have a car.

                Not a great neighborhood... but it seems Palermo is rough everywhere. Poor breakfast, old fashion hotel. The only real negative point for me was that our room's floor was very, very dirty.

                The hotel is very clean and is very close to railway station. It is very well marked right from the station till the hotel which made it easy to find. Value for money though the staff didnt interact much. The metro was also very close to the station which was handy to go to the airport which takes 45 min.

                Our toilet did not work which is the only complain
