Location of the hotel is outside the commotion of Palermo but reachable by periodic shuttle service. Shuttle is not real frequent and one needs to reserve seats. The grounds are lovely to explore and peaceful with a pretty swimming pool, bar and terrace restaurant overlooking the harbor. The layout of the hotel is a little confusing with old large rooms...

Every part of our stay was just perfect,. Great room with marina sea view, fantastic breakfast , great staff. After staying in the city center of Palermo this was a welcome change away from the hustle & bustle . Grounds were lush & perfectly kept. Pool area was inviting with great harbor views. Better than we antipated, highly recommend !

We debated about staying in Palermo 2 days of our recent 7 day trip to Sicily based on mixed reviews, but are glad we did...and this hotel was one of our highlights!

Lovely building, stunning, and relatively well kept. Rooms on 2nd floor and up recommended. Excellent restaurant, a must. Fantastic views of the bay, albeit partially obstructed by the port, but thats unavoidable. Short drive into town. Great value.

We really enjoyed this place - glamorous, a bit faded, but still delightfully flash and luxurious. The setting, pool, views across the bay and the service were wonderful. Our room was spacious and comfortable, not the last word in 2014 decor or services, but that's not what we were looking for. Cocktails outside felt very special and weren't silly money....
