... the wealthy have their weekend villas, and some were really impressive. Summer finishes on 15th September, so the beach was being dismantled of narrow wooden walkway, umbrellas, and any thing else associated with beach lounging. Unfortunately the bus could't stop, so we just had glimpses of the sandy beach. We were back at the hotel by 6.00, where we had a farewell meeting with Loredana. Last minute instructions. Then it was off to the harbour ...
... toured three of the City's markets (Vucciria, Capo and Ballaro), where we bought fruit and olives. We ate lunch (insalata di mare and friutti mare) in the Albergheria quarter. This is the former Arab quarter and the oldest part of Palermo, where p Pheonicia once had a city. After lunch we returned to the Piazza Independencia to visit the Palazzo dei Normanni (Norman Fortress). We arrived at 2:55 to find a sign posted saying they were closing at 2:45 today instead of 5:45. For ...
... With texts and assistance from the carribinerie, a gas station attendant, and two gentlemen with a broken down car, we finally found the guest-house where we were staying for the next two nights. The apartment we had booked was wonderful. The entire upper floor of a duplex, it had a full kitchen and living room, along with three bedrooms and a lovely veranda off of the kitchen. Fausto, our host, greeted us and gave us tips ...

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Palermo
Very nice hotel with plenty of amenities. The location was very good for sightseeing. Found the restaurant and housekeeping staffs to be very attentive and pleasant. The hotel desk staff was rude and at times, incompetent. The desk staff needs a course in Customer Service.
Have just spent 1 night at Jolly Hotel Palermo. Compared to other destinations in Sicily the parking facilities were excellent. Hotel is very easy to find in a somewhat manic city. Rooms had a lovely view out over the bay. Busy road outside did not disrupt sleep as the hotel is set back. Courtesy bus offered by hotel is good facility for those that need it to the centre of commerial district. We walked to all the main sites within 20 minutes of the hotel. Good value for money.
A really nice reasonable standard Hotel
The hotel stands slightly back from the sea front, and is next to a busy road. What you have to remember is Palermo is a very busy place full stop, and no hotel is in a quiet spot! Rooms were clean, and tidy, with all the essentials, mini bar, hair drier, toilettries, sat tv. The staff were helpful and friendly. There is an hourly shuttle bus into the centre which is very useful. It drops you off right in the middle of Palermo, with very easy access to places of interest, and some quality shopping. You must check out the bar and resturant next door, in a converted palace/castle dating back to the 1300, very good measures of drinks, and an unusual setting for this brilliant resturant.
We stayed at the Jolly, Palermo, Dec. 3,4,5 and 11, 2004. On three occassions I requested the front desk to allow me to use the lobby phone to make credit card calls. Each time they said that phone would not allow me to do that, even though I had placed numerous similar calls at other Jolly Hotels on our stay on the island. Finally, on my last night at the hotel, they agreed to switch the phone on. For the most part the attitude at the front desk was defensive, uncaring or at least not helpful. When asked for a map of the surrounding area, the response was we don't have that. The food in the dining room was "poor" and well below that of other hotels we had the occassion to eat at. I will not stay there again in the future.
we have just come back (one week) and i'm missing palermo and that wicked sun Mmmm!
I thought this hotel was great. It was located right by the ocean and just next door was a really cool old grainery where my friends and I went for drinks and a bite to eat; very posh place. Be careful though; no one spoke any English there! No complaints about the hotel or its service.
At the time of writing, there are only three Trip Advisor reviews and the ratings vary. We were there two months ago and would agree with the two negative reviews. We had a tiny room, the same dirt was behind the bathroom door every day, the bathroom tiles were dirty, the furnishings suggest the rooms were last decorated in the early 1970s, it is located on the edge of town, the airconditioner was not working - the full list of inadequacies would be very long. And how mean they are - they leave ONE chocolate on the pillow in double rooms. On the positive side, the breakfast was excellent, as were the dinners.
An excellent hotel in the old city. People , Food, sites were excellent as was staff. Total client satisfaction and whatever you desire. Will visit again someday. A trip into the old world Italy . My wife and I were truely impressed.
Basic Chain Hotel
Basic chain hotel, in a relatively good location. Service is basic and profunctory--although they handled a power blackout during our stay well. Staff is not that helpful and the beds are hard.
After spending a week touring rome, florence and venice I flew to Palermo and the Jolly Hotel. I do not recommend Palermo as a tourist destination. The hotel accomodations were not in the same category as the 4**** hotels I stayed at in those cities. The location was reminiscent of an industrial/commercial neighborhood. The room decor was very outdated. The shower curtain was moldy and dirty. The air conditioning was not adequate. The room telephone was not equipped for touch tone, therefore was unable to use a phone card or credit card to make calls. Though our original plans were to spend a few days in Palermo, we flew out in less than 24 hours from our arrival.
