The position of this hotel is perfect for a visit to Palermo. It is situated on a small, quiet square, just off a major street. The building was formerly a bank so it sits imposingly on one side of the square. As you walk in you find yourself in a huge courtyard, open in good weather, with small groups of...

We spent 7 nights in Palermo in May and we could not have picked a better Hotel. I made my reservation with the Hotel via email and the quick responses and attention to the details in my emails (thank you, Laura Napolitano) pretty much told me that our experience at the Piazza Borsa was going to be a good one....

A convenient inner city rather tired hotel. Much visited and staff are pleasant but no more. Spacious clean suit of rooms but breakfast was disappointing, even the coffee was basic. Perhaps too many tourists and no need to try hard? Would not return.

The Piazza Borsa is conviently located in the center of Palermo, which makes walking around, shopping, eating, etc., easy. Palermo has a terrible traffic problem in the center, however, so getting in and out of town by bus or car can be very slow. The staff were very helpful. Our problems consisted of a bad odor (? a dead animal...

Lovely hotel in Palermo which is a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Palermo but close to most of the main tourist attractions and cafes restaurants etc. You can catch the Prestia e Comande airport bus from outside the airport for transfer into Palermo city if you want to save a few pennies but this can take...

We had a junior suite at this hotel that was roomy and quiet. The location is perfect because you are near major cross streets so it easy to get anywhere in the city. Internet is only available in the lobby -- that does not include the large hall only the area near the reception and Internet desk. The breakfast is...

Charming elegant hotel occupies renovated old Bank building situated in a small square in the historic center of Palermo. The location is very good and quiet, just off the main noisy street but pretty close to all main attractions including Oratorio di San Lorenzo and Oratorio di Santa Cita displaying stucco masterpieces of Giacomo Serpotta. Rooms are very spacious and...

The courtyard and dining room of this hotel let you feel like you're living a privileged life in old Palermo (you can see a picture of the courtyard on their web site. The dining room is in a refined Art Deco style). The hotel was made by combining three old properties; the view from my window was of another medieval-looking...

I booked this hotel as part of a seminar stay in Palermo which was taking place in the hotel....it seems that I was the only person in the hotel, empty not people in the breakfast, the room for its price was nothing special, not extra luxury or design! The food was really good and not WiFi. The fourth day I...
