Spacious, clean, 4 star, convenient location. We had 2 large rooms + bath w/stove one block off via Roma.

Residenza d'Aragona is a 4 star hotel. E135/night, great location in the hotel district, on a side street-quiet-off via Roma.

It was one block from a mini-mart (there's no english spoken but the butcher will work with you) for salami and cheese; wine costs 6 euros.

3 blocks from the pedestrian mall (via Stefano, I think)with some excellent restaurants and 4 blocks from the waterfront, via Crispi, and Avis car rental.

Also there are 2 parking garages within 2 blocks. The hotel will tell you parking costs E15 a day - but we were charged E19.

The rooms were large, bigger than a Residence Inn, had a fridge, 2 burner stove, excellent air conditioning, elevator, extra cot and couch that pulled out to sleep 2. We couldn't ask for more. The desk clerk was helpful in finding parking and restaurants.

Comfortable suite type 4 star hotel in the Liberty district of Palermo.

A very pleasant, comfortable hotel with 20 suites in a conveinent location in central Palermo. The single suite I stayed in had a very comfortable double bed, large sitting area and a tiny kitchenette. The bathroom was large and modern by European standards. The suite had AC (that I didn't use), satellite TV, frigobar and hair dryer. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakast buffet was more than adequate.

The hotel is located north of the medieval quarter, a 10 minute walk to Piazza Verdi and the Teatro Massimo. High end shopping on Viale della Liberta is close by, yet the train staion is only 2 kms from the hotel as well. There is a bus stop 50 meters from the hotel. Prices range from 150-175 euros. I would happily stay at the Residenza D'Aragona again should I return to Palermo.
