On top of well known touristic sites with all the churches, spending 5 days allow us to get very interesting private visits of Palazzos less well known such as Villafranca Alliata Palazzo, Chiaramonte-Steri Palazzo, Branciforte Palazzo....

Really enjoyed the rooftop restaurant/bar
Reviewed 1 month ago

Loved Porta Felice Hotel! The location was very convenient to our activities and the staff was very helpful with directions. Our room was extremely comfortable and enjoyable. We also took advantage of the spa after a bike ride and it was one of the best massages I have experienced. We had dinner there one evening and it was of excellent quality and the service was attentive. It was everything we wanted.

Hotel Porta Felice
Reviewed 2 months ago

Porta Felice Hotel is situated in the old town of Palermo - a five minute walk from the main thoroughfare area.
Staff speak excellent English and are helpful and polite.
The room was very spacious - a suite - divided into a sitting area with a settee and a desk and TV with wardrobes. Also it had a spacious sleeping area with lots of storage space
. The bathroom was very big and equipped with a hairdryer and toiletries.
Suggestions for improvements in the room would be to have more lighting as it was only lit by side lights making it quite dim.
There was no coffee /tea making facilities in the room.
The breakfast buffet selection was excellent with a good choice of things to eat and a view to the hills . Evening meals were delicious too.
The spa facility is very tranquil and relaxing.

Upgrade to a suite

For our 1 night in Palermo we got an upgrade to a suite, so our experience was obviously excellent. The hotel is modern and well located. Would not call it a “boutique” hotel but it is overall very pleasant.
