Hotel Principe di Villafranca, Palermo
Expensive for what you get
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Our biggest issue occurred on our second stay for 3 days. This hotel seems to book to large tour groups, which can make it noisy and crowded at times. When we were there, our air conditioning system would not work. The lady at the front desk informed me that the central heating/air system could only be heat OR air conditioning. And, since majority preferred heat, that is what it will remain set at. If I had known this, I would have NEVER booked this hotel. For over $300 a night, this is unacceptable. In order to try to stay cooler, we gave up our junior suite (without compensation) to stay in an area with less noise when the windows were open. Unfortunately, it was still too loud. Therefore, I lost 2 nights of good sleep because it was too hot in the room. The only other issue we had was that we told the housekeeper (in Italian) that we did not need anything and that the room did not need to be clean, but she came into the room anyway. The second time we told the housekeeper AND the front desk and she still went into the room. This hotel is a little bit run down and needs to be updated. The pictures online look really nice, but the hotel itself needs some updating.The location is a 20-25 minute walk from the main sites and most of the restaurants. After being there and travelling that distance multiple times in a day, I would have preferred a hotel closer.The breakfast was simply average.

Great room but not close to old town
A great hotel with a very large room. Location is poor for visiting local sites- about a 25 minute walk to old town

Great value in Palermo
This hotel was a pleasant surprise during our trip to Palermo. Great dining and shopping just a couple blocks away. The room was large, especially for Italy standards, and the styling of the hotel was better than expected. The staff were beyond helpful and made the stay even better.
