Review of Hotel Tonic
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jul 2023
Great location in a clean large double room, shame only one air conditioner worked though and was not fixed or even had a fan to help with the heat after bringing to their attention. Lovely breakfast options and timeframes unfriendly staff though.
Date of stay: July 2023
Room Tip: Make sure air conditioner works before unpacking

Situated in the city centre this was an ideal jumping off place to start exploring Palermo. The room was spacious and spotless and furnished with a refrigerator and tea making facilities. The buffet breakfast was also excellent. The staff were very helpful in arranging wakeup call and transport to the airport.

Paid for two nights with Chase points. Stayed one night and moved on. I don't usually blow points off like that but I wasn't feeling the city or the hotel. I'd give this hotels 2 stars at best. I guess it has a central location if you want that - but central to what I'm still trying to figure out. There is no free parking or paid "on premises" BTW.

Room tip: Minimal and basic vibe.

Dear Customer,

I am sorry but I do not think that you stayed here with us at the Hotel Tonic, there is nothing in this review that proves that. Our hotel is in the real city center, all our guests love it as you may read in all the reviews. So we really don't understand your comment about the location. Have you really visited Palermo? Moreover, these points you mention, which you would have spent and wasted, I guess it was your choice, I don't see what fault we should possibly have.
For the future, I suggest you to inquire first about the city you want to visit, about the hotel and to provide further information, possibly useful, if you decide to leave a review.
Best Regards,

Jessica

A well run, clean and friendly hotel in a very central area of Palermo. A great commencement to our two week holiday in Sicily.
Compliments to Giovanni, who organized our transport from airport to hotel after a 30 hour flight from Australia and in particular, Danila who, at the last minute had to allocate us a smaller room due to an unforeseen medical emergency on the first night however followed up with a suite upgrade for the following night, complimentary breakfasts on both mornings and a complimentary bottle of wine.
Customer service par excellence.

Had a wonderful stay at Hotel Tonic October 22. Fabulous location. Turn left at front door, 5 minutes walk to city centre. Turn right, 5 minute walk to harbour. Lovely old Sicilian style hotel. Very clean. Balcony was a bonus. Lovely polite friendly staff. Looking forward to returning this year.
