Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Porta Felice is set in an 18th century palace in the very centre of Palermo, making it easy to explore the city including its famous botanical gardens, which are just a short walk away as well as the grand Cathedral of Palermo and many shopping districts. The traditional Sicilian markets nearby offer a glimpse into the past, in particular the ‘Capo’ market which found its roots in the 11th century and is still influenced by many different cultures.

The Hotel Porta Felice offers comfortable and sleek interiors inside ancient and embellished palace walls. A rich continental buffet breakfast is served each morning with homemade pastries and cakes. Breakfast service can be taken either in the dining room or on the rooftop terrace which offers unrivaled views of the Palermo skyline.  A lower ground floor spa takes heavy influence from the Arabian history of the city with its stone floors, intricate wall murals and steam room, Turkish sauna and hot tub. There is also a broad array of spa treatments for which you can book and pay locally.

Gloriously unconventional and slightly disheveled in a charmingly Italian way, Sicily's capital city is a melting pot of cultures and architecture, in fact one saying is that Palermo is 'the most European of North Africa's cities'!. This is a vibrant, colourful and chaotic city full of contrasts, with elegant palazzos, noisy street markets but also stylish modern boutiques. Start with a wander around the old centre, which fans out from the main crossroads of the Quattro Canti, from where the four main quarters of the city begin. There's much to see and do in both the city itself and on day trips out and car hire can be taken for part of your stay. Palermo can also easily be combined with other destinations in Sicily to make a great multi-centre holiday.
