We found Hotel Joli to be just what we wanted. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, very comfortable and clean Breakfast was delicious and there was a choice from a wide range of cakes and savouries.
The hotel is in a quiet steet overlooking a tree-lined square and is within easy walking distance of the centre of Palermo.
There were plent of good restuarants very close to the hotel. In particular we enjoyed Le merte de La Rosa, which had very good traditional food at reasonable prices.

Giuseppe is a fine host, reserved, with a dry sense of humor. He provides good suggestions for sites to see & restaurants. Breakfast is a spread of fruit, cakes, yogurt and more. The rooms are large, well decorated, with large clean bathrooms. Being in the heart of Palermo, this Palazzo is surprisingly quiet being off the street. You are a 2 min walk from the bus stop to & from the airport.

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.
Everything about the hotel was first class, quiet air conditioned rooms, great location, good breakfast, valet parking, helpful staff friendly service.
Four of us, two couples, stayed 4 nights in September 2014 and this was our first stop on a trip around Sicily. Palermo is an amazing city, like an Italy on steroids, everything, the good and the bad, amplified. We enjoyed all of it, the people, the traffic, the markets, the historic old buildings and the food.
Palermo was safe and we had nothing but positive experiences. We want to go back!
We stayed at Casena dei Colli on the final evening of our driving tour through Sicily and chose this hotel based on its location outside of Palermo that was fairly close to the airport. It has a parking lot for about 25 cars, although you may find this gets filled up if there are a lot of guests or people visiting the attached restaurant.
We were put in a room in a block of hotel-apartments that were branded "Stanze Baronali" and it looks like they are rebranding part of the complex under this new name that isn't yet fully "online" (at the time of visiting/writing this review). This block contains the newer rooms; ours had a beautiful rain shower in the bathroom, modern interior, brightly lit room, contactless key card for entry, powerful air conditioning, and balcony that faces the interior/complex garden.
It's five-star for Casena dei Colli but it may be the case that it's actually for Stanze Baronali (when this brand finally launches!).
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!
