The Alma Hotel was a great experience. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and eager to make a good experience for guests. The room was large, clean, and well appointed. Even the toiletries were superior to other hotels we stayed in on Sicily.

Hotel's Favourite
I am considering returning to Palermo just to spend some more time at the Alma Hotel. All of these 5-star reviews are absolutely deserved! As some background, I have Muscular Dystrophy and use a walker due to reduced mobility. My friends left me with a ton of luggage because I was returning to my home in Bologna by car. Like multiple heavy bottles of Sicilian wine. I knew that there was no way I could transport any of this by myself, so I started contacting hotels to see what my options were. People were pretty rude or unhelpful, until I found Alma Hotel. Michele and Noemi responded to my emails within minutes and assured me that they would be able to help. It is hard to put my relief into adequate words. When I arrived, Antonella, Paolo, and their staff went out of their way to welcome and assist me. I have been to more than 45 countries and have never experienced anything even close to this level of customer service. I legit almost cried. The location is great, the room is spotless, the Wifi was good enough for my work meeting, the bed was comfortable, and I didn't hear any noise the entire night. I can assure you that you will not find anything better. And after trying Antonella's breakfast cakes, you will never again be satisfied with another hotel breakfast with those nasty chemical eggs. If you are reading this review, please book this hotel immediately. Going anywhere else would be a waste of time and the biggest mistake of your life.

This is a gem of a hotel. We booked a superior room as we were in Palermo for 10 days. The room was spacious with plenty storage, immaculately clean, great shower, free water and soft drinks. Stylish furnishings and decor in all public areas. Plentiful breakfast. Within a few minutes walk are plentiful restaurants and attractions also the airport bus. But what makes it really special are the staff. From the minute we arrived to when we left they were welcoming, bright and cheerful, extremely efficient. They are a credit to the hotel and to Sicily. You will not regret staying here. Deserves five stars.

There are hotels that you stay at, and there are hotels that stay with you: Alma Hotel is definitely one of the latter. After last staying there *seven years ago*, I made a last-minute booking after unexpectedly findingal myself in Palermo for the night. The welcome I received upon my return was as if I were a member of the family. Everything about the hotel is perfect, from the staff (and especially the genuine warmth and hospitality of the owners Antonella and Paolo), the spacious, well-appointed rooms (the suite was exceptional), and the abundant spread and showcasing of local Sicilian treats at breakfast. The only downside? That I waited seven years before returning … next time I shan’t leave it nearly as long! PS. The owners of the hotel have also recently opened a restaurant nearby, Sapori Peduti, that continues the theme of warmth and hospitality , with exquisite food and wines to match!

This hotel really is as good as the reviews say! It’s very well situated: the centre of Palermo is only 5 minutes away, likewise the hop on/hop off tour bus. Nor did we have to go far to find plenty of restaurants. Our room was fabulous. Beautifully decorated in modern style, and spotlessly clean and comfortable. There was a minibar with free water and soft drinks which was replenished daily. The air con was super cool so it was a relief to get back to the room after being outside all day. The breakfast room has a very cheerful air to it. Food was plentiful (and replenished) and there was a wide variety to be had, including some lovely Sicilian pastries. It’s a help yourself buffet but staff are constantly present to help if required. The staff themselves are all very nice and helpful. We always got a friendly smile and a greeting off them when we met them. In short, this place is a little gem.

My husband and I at Alma Hotel after an extremely warm week sailing around the Aeolian Islands. We were a little worried when we realized reception was on the third floor, but soon we’re bowled over by the awesome staff. We were a couple of hours early and our room wasn’t ready yet. The staff gave us great recommendations for places to visit nearby. The hotel is in a great location for many tourist sites. We stored our luggage at the hotel and when we returned, it was waiting in our room… all 6 heavy bags. Our room was a Deluxe Suite, Ensuite on the 4th floor. We were delighted with the waters, juice and sodas in the mini fridge. These were all complimentary. I was very happy to have a kettle too. The bathroom was big with an incredible shower. Our bed was so very comfortable. The breakfast had a huge assortment for every taste. Even though we had a room facing the street, we were fine. The hotel provided earplugs if you needed them. There were also slippers. The air conditioner worked so very well. There are some really good restaurants within a 2 block radius of the hotel. The staff arranged for a car to take us to the airport. This hotel is a gem!

Alma is exactly as pictured! It's exactly what you need for a central location in Palermo! The hotel staff were SUPER Helpful with tips of the city, setting up an airport transfer and being accommodating when our car pick up was running late, and therefore we were a few min late to check out! Everything is as pictured and no surprises! It's good for an easy one night! It's not glamorous by any means and has a dorm feel to it, but was perfect for us!

Stayed at the Alma hotel for 2 nights. Room was perfect for our needs, comfortable bed, clean & bathroom with a shower. Room comes with a mini bar with soft drinks, water which are free to have. We also were given a bottle of bubbles to celebrate our wedding anniversary which was a lovely touch. Staff are extremely friendly & helpful. Hotel location is great, easy walk to all the attractions & dining spots. Also 5 minute walk to the airport bus pick up & drop off point. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

This hotel is located just moments outside the old part of town. It is super clean and very well appointed. The staff is amazing! We stayed in room 10, which has a suite with a small kitchen and mid sized refrigerator and a balcony overlooking the street below. The breakfast is very good with both sweet and savory options. This was our second stay here and we highly recommend.
