We were two friends and therefore asked for two beds. We booked two beds on the site, we added a special note to please make sure that it was two beds, and we called and said two beds please. Even after all of these measures they gave us a room with only one bed and told us there were no more rooms with 2 beds and nothing they could do about it. They offered an additional room at a small discounted rate which I don't think was reasonable - they should have given us the other room for free for the night until they could have remedied it - since it was their mistake. Once we did finally move into another room, the free hotel wifi didn't reach and we had to go to the hallway or somewhere else in the hotel to use it. Other than that, the hotel was nice, the staff mostly pleasant (other than how they dealt with bed situation) and it was centrally located.
The hotel was close to the water and felt pretty centrally located to many of the sights of the city.

Poor wifi reception. Stuffy room.
Proximity to city centre and sites. Local choice of restaurants. Breakfast and breakfast room. Helpful staff. Quiet room.

We decided to stay a few more nights in palermo and out of politeness suggested we could book directly through the front desk. The woman tried to convince us that the price in booking.com was somehow false, with a truly false smile on her face. So i just clicked my iPhone and saved myself 25 a night. She could have given it to us for the price and saved the hotel a few euros. Instead she put us in a smaller room. I hate being lied to. Beyond that a certain foul smell came out of the sink (in both rooms). The smell of... Let's just say... Septic tank?
Clean tasteful hotel. Good location.

Helpful personel at the receptin desk.

Breakfast in 4th floor room overlooking the city, including proper Sicilian espresso. Friendly and flexible staff

The room was clean, but a bit dark even with all the lights on. The internet is a joke: extremely weak signal in my room, and we were only given 1 code per person, i.e. if you have a laptop and two phones you should pay extra to connect all devices. Staff was not particularly welcoming and helpful on arrival. The reception should have more than just 1 employee.
Room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is conveniently situated within walking distance of many sites, and the bus stop is just few meters away.

The bed was a bit too hard for me though I can imagine that this is good for others. The wireless code was not working on the last day.
The location and the personnel are both very great. The hotel is a great quality for the price.

Didn't try but they have a Pillow Menu! The spa was lovely and affordable - only downside was the hot tub was not hot at all when we were there. Massage was lovely. Rooms were clean and comfortable, reminded us of the Kimpton hotels in the states. Front desk was very helpful and nice.

The location is excellent. The restaurant upstairs is first class, an unexpected bonus in the torrential rain.

This is a great hotel in a great position with welcoming and helpful staff, lovely chic but comfortable rooms, a great restaurant for breakfast or dinner with a wonderful view over Palermo rooftops. We slept so well [beds very conmfortable, air-con just right] and roamed the historic alleys and lovely parks nearby in the daytime then again in the evening. Couldn't be bettered.

breakfast good but basic

Wonderful breakfast room: great selection and very nice view. Always a choice to eat outside. Staff couldn't have been more accomodating.They called a taxi for us when we got stuck at the hydrofoil dock when our boat to Lipari was cancelled. Good inexpensive restaurants in the area.

My husband and I stayed in Porte Felice for two nights. The room was fabulous, very modern , spacious with an enormous, comfortable bed. The staff were extremely pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was very good also. The location was very convenient to all places of interest and it was just a short walk to the port. It was also walking distance to Central station.

Staff was not particularly welcoming and helpful on arrival but maybe we have been unlucky!
Very comfortable hotel, spacious rooms nicely designed and good location. Great breakfast!

The air-conditioning is operated from the desk. Wouldn't normally be a problem but I was laid low for a couple of days in bed and needed the air conditioning. However, it is very cold and not changeable in the room.
This hotel is quite lovely. The rooms are spacious, the staff are delightful, the breakfast really good and is taken in the rooftop restaurant with a wonderful view over the city. The position is excellent, within walking distance to the port and all of the tourist attractions including the hop on, hop off bus.

Quality of bar facilities
July 13, 2014
We ordered 2 beds, but stuff did not provide us with an appropriate room. Awful view from room and from restaurant area. Bad smell from the street - impossible to open the windows. The air conditioner is automatically turned on when you leave the room and it is very cold inside when you back
Big room, good breakfast
July 10, 2014
The continual hum in our room which was not from the air conditioner. They offered us a change of room but that was too much inconvenience and the room change offered was not as good.
The restaurant was very good and the staff there friendly
