We stayed at Hotel Porta Felice on a package purchased from Luxury Escapes Australia. Luxury Escapes sources hotels, resorts, cruises etc world wide and put together a great package. We trust them with all their selection and saves us a lot of time researching. Our stay at Porta

Good location near the harbour and only a 5 minute walk through to the Garden Garibaldi and onto the main street in Palermo. The trouble with this being that the street in front of the hotel can be busy and noisy so if you want quiet ask for a room at the back. The hotel was clea

Set in a fairly small road a bit away from the centre, this hotel is close to the seaside and promenade walks.
Freindly staff helped us enjoy our stay but some of our fellow guests were troubled by a private party that took over the restaurant until the early hours and was very n

We had a beautiful room and enjoyed the use of the spa facilities. The front desk was very courteous and made some excellent dining suggestions for casual fresh seafood. The spa staff were very friendly and gave very relaxing massages.

Bonsoir, Pourriez-vous me communiquer l'adresse mail de l'hôtel Porta Felice de Palerme? Merci. Brigitte M.
Bonsoir, Brigitte. The address Via Butera 35/47, 90133, Palermo, Sicily, Italy. TripAdvisor reviewers rank it #9 of 98 Palermo hotels. A free tram/bus that circulates amongst the main attractions, and stops a block from the hotel, at the port/gate adjacent to the waterfront. Search on any Web browser the following: Hotel Porta Felice. That will provide the phone number, website, and email address. TripAdvisor does not allow me to provide you directly with that type of information. I was thrilled with the service and ambiance at this 4-Star boutique hotel. A botanical gardens is about 3 blocks from the hotel. Enjoy your visit to Palermo. I certainly did!☺

What is the cheapest way to get from the airport to the hotel?
Does the hotel have an enclosed parking garage so no rain can get on it? I do not want my car parked on the street with no protection. Please verify the garage is an enclosed building.
No...there is no parking garage. You park on a narrow crowded street.

Does the hotel also provide lunch and dinner? If so what is the cost?
Noreen: As part of a tour group, the hotel did offer evening meals, but that may have been a special event. Check the hotel's website for any meals provided. There is, however, a fabulous breakfast buffet. Too, many excellent restaurants are within walking distance. There is also a supermarket about three blocks away. Fresh fruit, cheese and yogurt are an excellent alternative to higher cost restaurant meals.

Ciao! I am looking into visiting Palermo in July 2018. Several hotels I have looked at require beach tickets to get access to the beach. Does Hotel Porta Felice offer any beach access tickets? Grazie!
We just walked over to the beach. It didn't require any tickets at all. It's a rocky beach with grassy fields above and about a block and a half. Perhaps there was some other beach we didn't know about

"Get a rear view room for peace and quiet"
"Right on the street"
"rooms on 3rd floor are noisy"
"Request a quiet location away from the street - although it is located on a quiet street for Palermo"
"Rooms in front face a very busy, tiny street. Lots of business people park here."
US$78 - US$164 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
