Situated in the historical center of the city of Palermo, the Ibis Styles Palermo Cristal is ideal resting for the visit of the city. Its intense history passes through civilization and different and conflicting dominations, that have determined the various faces of it: the rich Arabic city with the magnificent palaces to the center of luxuriant tropical gardens, the cultured and refined Palermo of Fred II, the Baroque city and the Palermo liberty and elegant. The hall lounge is very simple, with a minimal style that makes the pleasant structure, adjust to a guest leisure and business and is an elegant place to the demands of the guest. Its restaurant proposes to own guests a various choice of typical and national dishes, as the example of the culinary art of our earth. Our restaurant has an original Menu but also a simple Menu characterized from the Mediterranean cuisine. Ibis Styles Palermo Cristal is perfect to organize different congresses. We are out of ZTL area!

An okay stay for the weekend. Location was great as it was very close to lots of the greet places to visit. However be prepared for a lot of noise through the night due to being on the main road. Staff were friendly enough and breakfast was also nice. The hotel didn’t have an iron or ironing board though which was disappointing for a 4 star.

Good price and value for money in a central location in the city. We were only there for one night so first impressions is all I can give. Reception: excellent - a warm welcome in a pleasant hotel lobby. Room: Good size - took a few minutes to locate the air conditioning controller to get the room cooler. Take coat hangers; there were only 5 in the wardrobe. Breakfast: Excellent - wide range of food and drink to choose from.

The hotel is in central Palermo, within strolling distance of many historic and beautiful sites. It is not the most modern of hotels and could use a little TLC, but we went to see Palermo, not the hotel, and this was remarkably pleasant as a base to explore from. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the view from our 4th floor room was of a vibrant and beautiful city. The staff were always available, friendly, respectful, and helpful. The buffet style breakfast was impeccable. I'm vegetarian, my wife is vegan and our 7yr daughter will try anything. All of us had plenty of choice and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh local produce.

Rooms are old fashioned and need renovation. Poor air conditioning - outdated floor unit that didn't work effectively. The room was very hot and it was difficult to sleep at night. It was possible to open the window but the noise of the traffic was too loud from the main road. Breakfast was busy with plenty of choice for an Italian hotel. Good location - easy to get around.

Perfect location near all attractions and the airport shuttle bus. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Comfortable room. The only remark may be that the restaurant is located in the basement without windows, but there are plenty of other restaurants nearby.

First of all superclean! The staff are nice and helpful everywhere. Breakfast is various, and they have a gluten free area as well with plenty of choice. Central situated, all a traveller needs. The only thing is that noisy outside as central hotel, but its Italy, so expected :)

While it's not luxury accommodation, I found it to be functional and very clean with comfortable beds. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. And I don't think the location could be any better as it's within walking distance to everything. Buffet breakfast (included in room price) was better than expected with hot options. Three practical thoughts below, should you stay here: 1) Airport bus from PMO - Prestia e Comande - is 6 euros one way and runs frequently. Get off at Politeama and walk to the hotel in less than five minutes. 2) Two close grocery stores. The little MAX, three blocks south on via Francesco Bentivenga and the large FAMILA (open 24 hours) a few blocks north on via della Liberta. 3) You like pizza? Lucky you, because there's a branch of BIGA (rated best pizza in town) around the south corner from the Politeama. They offer specials of one slice plus an aperitivo (usually Aperol spritz) for 7 euros but they also do take-away and their staff are friendly and speak Engish.

Excellent location: public transport, taxis, short walk from Airport shuttle bus stop. Safe and quiet, spacious comfortable reception/meeting place area. Friendly staff but rather disorganised in the restaurant. Breakfast fine. Dinner verified from fair to poor, the New Years Eve meal was of a higher standard in quality and service, better than I expected. Generally I would not recommend the evening meals there are so many restaurants to choose from in the area. My room 207 (double bed) was comfortable but the over all decoration and furniture are worn they need updating. There are no mattress covers my friend (her room was 208 very small with only a single bed and rather lumpy mattress) and I asked for them they do not have them which is very bad economy cut, house keeping placed 2 under sheets on our beds. The water pressure in the bathroom was very good, shower no bath. Small fridge in the bedroom with 2 bottles of water provided. Wall mounted hairdryer, facial tissues, shower cap, beaker, feminine wash, liquid hand and shower wash provided, however, no shampoo, conditioner or body/hand lotion this hotel is classified as 4 star I would expect these accessories and certainly in any level hotel mattress covers are essential. Would I recommend this hotel, well for a short break (as long as you take into account the negatives) I would certainly not bother with the evening meals as there is so much choice available elsewhere in the area. Wifi works well and as others have mentioned well situated a short walk to the sea front and the historic area. The owners should make more of the hotel to live up to 4 star or else down grade to 3 star which is really where it really is at present.

An ibis hotel is going to be functional. It was what we expected in a busy city centre. Parking is a couple of hundred metres away in a steep basement car park where you leave your keys. Breakfast was adequate but if you get there after 0830 much will have gone and it's not replenished. You just get the leftovers. Room was ok. Quite small with a huge TV and Aircon that worked. I would say a good 2 star or 3 star but 4 star is grade inflation.
