Hotel Joili is a quaint and lovely hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Able to walk to attractions and great restaurants especially Giada Rest. one block over with excellent food. Breakfast at hotel was wonderful with typical Italian sweets, cereal, ham. salami, cheeses, canned fruit, juices and a wonderful coffee barista . Breakfast staff were all smiles and served coffee to your table.
We had a room with a balcony as requested for 5 nights (booked through Expedia) and no surprise fees when we departed.
5 day stay with clean towels everyday (not unusual for Italy hotels not to change sheets daily, but you will get any service if requested!
Would definitely stay again and have already suggested hotel to others. Many people from around the world were staying at Hotel Joli at the same time. A real treat to meet them all. Reasonable price for October.

The receptionist spoke good english and gave us last available room ( I made a mistake in date's when booking for Easter Sunday! ). Not a single fault I'd say with the hotel, room or the location. In few minutes walk from hotel you can catch the bus/train to the airport - convenient!
I'd recommend for a stay definitely.
Excellent location close to restaurants, shops and just off historical district on a pedestrian street. Well kept hotel. We were in the residence , the older section. We had a large efficiency unit- clean but not renovated. We could not use the kitchen because we had taken the "room only " price - Still very good for the what we paid in Palermo.
The hotel is clean but they did not change the towels we used even though they have a sticker indicating that if you leave it in the floor it will be changed they just took it and didn't replace ,the Wifi didn't work ,and the breakfast buffet not enough food was offered in relation to the number of customers present and you feel monitored if you go for seconds the ratio was 1 croissant to 4 customers and 1 toast to 3 customers . However, I would recommend, because it is clean and close to town.
The hotel is situated just off the main road into the centre, the main shopping road. There is a handy supermarket nearby. And an excellent ice cream place for a late evening addition.
The hotel itself has friendly and cheerful staff. The room was very large, and all the facilities were in very good condition. We had no complaints. Breakfast was straightforward. A bar had expresso available all the time it seemed.
Walking around Palermo felt safe, even along alleys at night. Not that we looked like tourists in any grand fashion. Only once at a bar on the fringes of a market did we feel we had sat amongst a group of young men who had other business in mind, though not with us.
The people are cheerful, not pushy. The food was good, large portions, and reasonably priced. A very enjoyable place to go.
A day out to the seaside at Mondelo is recommended. 30 mins on bus. Sand. Clear mediterranean sea, you can see some small fish swimming around you.
Don't bother with postcards, you'll be lucky to find stamps. Post office, after queueing for a long time, stick printed label stamps on your cards, which obliterates a good portion. But, eh, this is Sicily/Italy, you can't expect heaven. Though ice cream in brioche... is heaven. Particularly with the size of the scoops!
