    We only had one night to stay and it was amazing. The hotel is closing for renovation in a few weeks but the staff and the hotel didn't lead on to the closing. They were business as always. Great breakfast - amazing dinner.

    This can be a beautiful property but it's very rundown right now, it was very sad. Very disappointed from the beginner to the end of my stay.

    The service was spectacular and the hotel had a lot of old school charm and history. We found the concierge, Philippe particularly helpful with his recommendations. He explained a lot about Sicily and gave us excellent advice on which landmarks to visit and where to shop and eat.

    Good location, can get the local bus to Mondello beach and the shuttle bus to Palermo although this service only goes until 8pm. The staff are very friendly and helpful, be careful with the in room minibar especially with young children as the prices on regular items are very high.
