... was especially special with warm sun and fantastic views. Magnolia had a chance to have a free day out of her "bucket" while Nathan, Chic, and Lucy drove to Mount Etna to view the volcano site. Phenomenal. One of the world's largest volcanoes. It last erupted in 2002 spewing lava as far as Catonia. There is a ski resort in the area that was totally destroyed in 2002 but has been rebuilt. This year there is literally no snow at the ski area so they have not ...

Wandering the streets of Palermo!

... walking on a glass pathway that is up off the actual ground (in order to preserve it). On nearly every inch of the walls are semi-preseved bodies. Some are hanging up like a picture frame, some lying down on an elevated sort-of bed. There was a section of monks, wives, and so on. It's pretty easy to desensitize something like that if you just think of it like a movie. Nothing smelled dead and it didn't look like anything would jump out at you so I was ...

Unfortunately, the Ralph Lauren purple turtleneck wearing gentleman who was sitting opposite however must have been immune to such ingenious schemes, slimy inviting me to stay at his beach front apartment.

A city with many faces

Train travel in Italy seems to be quite reasonably priced. The 70 Km trip for 2 cost us Euro 10.30. From the station we walked to the Hotel and booked in, but as the room wasn't quite ready the receptionist offered us an espresso while we waited for 5 minutes. Afterwards we headed for the Tourist Office for info on the town. First impressions of Palermo, noisy (car horns) dusty and grimy looking ...

    Jolly Hotel

    from

    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.

    Good Location

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Unsatisfactory stay

    from

    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.

    Bay of Palermo

    from

    we have just come back (one week) and i'm missing palermo and that wicked sun Mmmm!

    Great location

    from

    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.

    A long way short of 4 stars

    from

    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.

    Great Hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Very disappointed

    from

    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.
