Hotel felt like an absolute ghost town with the hotel being hardly furnished, the view was disappointing and it's in a ghetto part of Palermo. Also, don't be deceived, their non-smoking rooms and smoked in, due to them not enforcing the 'non-smoking' factor sooo your room will smell like a mediocre deodorant was thrown over the smoke smell.

I spent four nights here with my partner in April. The view has to be seen to be believed, absolutely stunning. Room was large and comfortable, although the shower is rather small. We ate dinner in the restaurant twice - prices are reasonable and food is good quality. Breakfast is basic but fine. Staff very friendly and keen to help....

I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); accom. has to be convenient to shopping and/or sights. Stunning views, night and day, high up on a hill, overlooking Palermo and the Mediterranean; very romantic. Swimming pool - great, extensive terraces for relaxing. Sightseeing all day, we really didn't spend a lot of time in the room - just for sleeping in: big room,...

The view is breathtaking!! It's tucked away in a mountainside away from the hustle and bustle of Palermo, but close enough to get there in no time. Our room was clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful...lunch not so much. Wifi connection was a bit unsatisfactory, but better than others. Do yourself a favor...

The view and the jacuzzi are excellent and if you just want to relax, this is a good place to be. We found the hotel very clean and our bed was large and comfy. Hotel transport into Palermo was very good and cheap. The restaurant menu was quite extensive, but lots of similar items - pasta, seafood, pizzas and meat....

The hotel is easily accessible to Palermo either by hotel transfer (max 9 euros for 4 people) or by the half-hourly bus from the bottom of the road. Please note you CAN'T buy bus tickets from the local tobacconist or on the bus; you need to buy at the terminus at Plaza John Lennon(best buy a daily ticket for 3.5...

It took us quite some time (we arrived in the dark) to find this hotel. Eventually, we had a very friendly local guy living nearby to show us the way. However, when you have found it, you will be awarded with stunning views over Palermo. I would advice to park the car (for free) along the road, the private car...

All in all a nice hotel (amazing view over palermo) - two points worth mentioning: 1. Outstanding helpful staff, great service 2. Very Cheap and reliable transfers into the city center. Absolutely recommendable if you aren't keen on driving in Palermo's city centre and are looking for something just a little outside of town. Thanks again to the staff

By the time we got here we were in desperate need of some down time. Well, we got it! The sunrises were spectacular! The hotel was clean and the staff were personable. I agree that they need some fresh fruit at breakfast, though. Our only really bad thing was the neighborhood dogs' barking and setting each other off for continued...

I stayed here with my parents & husband for a couple of nights whilst holidaying in Sicily. This hotel is brilliant! Ask for a room on a high floor and you will have a beautiful view. The rooms are lovely. All staff were friendly and helpful, especially the waiters in the restaurant who made us laugh so much- we enjoyed...
