I stayed here in March 2017 for one night , but was a bit unlucky. Because the hotel was full, I had the last and smallest room with a window looking at an enclosed elevator shaft. Because the airconditioning in many Italian hotels is still in heating mode, my room was too warm (25 C) with no possibility of cooling....

I stayed one night. Spacious room, nice bathroom and shower (although u could easily slip on marble floor). But the beds were from The 5th century. The mattress is an old motel thin and hard mattress. Totally out of touch with today's modernity. The air conditioner is on low and no amount of changing the temperature control changed anything. Thankfully...

The Hotel Federico was a very pleasant surprise for us. We were told by the taxi driver it was top shelf and turned out to be that and more. The room was spacious. The front desk help was simply outstanding. The breakfast were over the top great. This is a 4-5 star Hotel centrally located where walking to see the...

We had a problem with the aircondition. The staff was not polite. The breakfast very poor and the coffee was one of the worst I have ever drink. But the location was excellent and the rooms were clean.

This hotel had a perfect location! the rooms were really clean and nice. The breakfast was very good, they had a parking fee that was really expensive, but i guess this was because it was in very central position.

Arriving late at night after a flight from Naples we were informed that dinner was not possible as there was only one chef on duty for the whole hotel so we had snack food from a packet at the bar. The waiter was extremely apologetic and efficient. At breakfast the next morning we felt we were in a nursing home!...

A old style rather grand hotel in central Palermo, very well placed for the major sights. Comfortable room and lovely open air bar on the roof. EXcellent breakfast buffet where you can stuff your own cannoli. On leaving, our entire group was charged a newly introduced tourist tax that had already been paid by our tour operator, so just check...

The Federico II is a well converted old palazzo in the centre of the more upmarket area of Palermo. The staff are extremely helpful and polite and there is a good bar area. The rooms are comfortable in a boutique kind of way although the mini bar fridge is too small to accommodate anything other than what is provided. Unfortunately...

Great location to downtown Palermo, but interior lobby and rooms are a little dated. Restaurant located on top floor above all the rooms and I kept pressing the elevator button for down instead of up. Stayed in room 302 and the security lock box was not working. I forgot some my tooth brush, toothpaste and deodorant, but this hotel had...
