    Fabulous

    Hotel Joli was one of our better choices during our trip. Air conditioner worked well. Good location. Nearby restaurants & shopping. Within walking distance from train station however far enough away to be in a nice quiet street. Bus to Airport within walking distance. Banks nearby. Excellent breakfast included in the price. Good value hotel with charm.Staff were friendly & helpful.

    An english television station would be helpful. Lift is small - take the stairs if you can.

    Very good

    Extremely helpful, friendly staff; central to town but in a quieter street and overlooking a green piazza on one side; original decorative cornices and elegant marble floors; peaceful atmosphere.

    Grubby stair-carpet leading up from reception to first floor; a strange heavy musty smell coming from bathroom - possibly a cleaning product? -cleared from bedroom by leaving windows open and shutters closed.

    I liked the location of the hotel and the reception staff were very helpful.The hotel was very clean and comfortable.

    I thought the breakfast staff were unfriendly and the stairs/lift was a really poor.

    Superb

    The hotel is well placed for buses (including the airport shuttle) and the central station. There are numerous shops, restaurants, bars and cafés near by. The staff are excellent: efficient, helpful and friendly. Housekeeping is impeccable. The breakfast is very good. All in all, the Hotel Joli offers outstanding value for money.

    If I had been prone to complaining for the sake of doing so, I would mention that both the lift and the bathrooms are small, but this does not bother me in the least. No matter how much luggage you have or how many times you want to shower, you will manage if you are not a complete cretin.

    The hotel has a true Sicilian flavour being in an older building which has been beautifully restored with Art nouveau scenes on the ceilings, and through paintings on the walls. Great breakfast and hotel bar and fantastic location and atmosphere. The ferry port is walkable even with luggage- a mere six to ten minutes and the Teatro Massimo and main shopping street also within five to ten minutes. Hotel room had air conditioning and useful fridge for plenty of cold water as well as Sky TV/ BBC World, air conditioning.

    They had WiFi though for some strange reason I could not get access through the provided passwords. Clearly a glitch.

    The hotel was decorated very beautiful.

    We requested for a medical reason a non-smoking room 8 months ago and when we checked in it smelled of smoke, the terrace was outside our window as was the air conditioning unit in which the staff and other guests smoked and it was sucked righ into our room. We requested another room but it was not possible until our second day. The bathroom was so small that using the toilet your arms and legs touched the side of the wall and shower! The bathroom floor was not very clean.

    Superb

    The personnel was forthcoming and very helpful! Our room was really cozy, with high ceilings, big beds and a good shower. Really pretty little terrace overlooking the piazza across the road. Breakfast included lovely small cakes and croissants, and also some cereal and fresh juice. You can also order freshly made espressos and macchiatos in the bar.

    Mostly cakes for breakfast, could be nice with some more options...

    Superb

    Apart from my room, which was extremely comfortable, the main feature was the friendliness at reception. Giusepppe was top-notch and always full of informative advice as to where I should visit and how to get there. Heven looked up train times for me and printed them. Gerry, the room porter, was also most helpful. The staff could not have done more to be helpful.

    I have one major complaint and quite a big one. Whoever designed their bathrooms must have been an absolute comedian. In a room about 8 x 4 ft there was a basin, a shower, a bidet and a toilet. The toilet was was in the corner bounded on one side by the shower and the other by the wall. When you wanted to sit on the loo, there was absolutely no legroom whatsoever. It was a joke. Eventually I discovered that in the breakfast room there was a decent-sized toilet and I was reduced to having to go downstairs to use that. On the whole Hotel Joli was fine but for the above reason I would not go there again.

    Fabulous

    Situated next to a small park this hotel is located close to many city attractions. A lift was available to take our luggage to our room on first floor. A communal outdoor terrace with tables and chairs was available for guests on this floor. Continental breakfast was good, but staff were sometimes slow in replenishing food items. Reception staff were helpful with tourist information.

    Bathroom was very small. Toilet was situated in a corner up against the shower cubicle. Anyone of above-average weight would have difficulty reaching for paper without knocking their elbows against the shower screen.

    Old fashion design, esp. Furniture.

    Noise from the air conditioning devices on the balcony - throughout the night.

    Exceptional

    The staff were always friendly and helpful. There were plenty of eating places nearby if one does not want to go out far at night.

    Internet connections on higher level was not good we had to use computer on ground floor to get reception. Breakfast was good but could have included fruit as well.

    Nothing. We checked out after one night of the three we had booked.

    The room was extreamly small. The bathroom would have trouble qualifying as a narrow hallway. When I sat on the toilet it was difficuly to stand up without hitting my head on the wall in front of me. The floor in the bathroom was dirty and sticky. We never got the air conditioning to work properly. The man at the front desk was just above rude when we checked in to the hotel. We asked about any tours of Palermo and he pointed to a display with information on one tour and he told us we could walk to a location to find the startingtour. The only person at the front desk that was courtious was the young man we told we were checking out early the morning of the second day.

    Exceptional

    An excellent location, in the centre of Palermo, close to lots of historic sites and restaurants. We were worried that parking would be a problem, but this was not the case. The staff were all lovely, charming and helpful. It was very clean. Breakfasts were most enjoyable. I would strongly recommend it.

    The decoration

    It was noisy at night, people going out and down the stairs and talking loud. Hotel staff used to enter the room anytime without even knocking the door. "Do not disturb" concept is unknown (even the door sign was not available). Some of the stuff member were not polite enough and should be better trained/educated.
