The first thing that we noticed was its position in the Old Town of Palermo located as it was between the Royal Palace and the harbour. As we were on a tour of historical and archaeological sites it was perfectly located. It seems from diagrams upstairs in the hotel that it had once been a Palace and/or a convent, or both. Consequently it was large with rooms around the large courtyard which could be closed to exclude the elements.
Initially, we found the breakfast buffet to be large but to be quite basic for a hotel of its apparent class: fruit juice drink,not fruit juice and limited hot items, until we found that we could get freshly squeezed Orange juice and individually cooked items, which made a great difference.
Fortunatel for us, sufficient numbers of the staff spoke English, as our Italian was awful.More
