Another great stay in a fine hotel. This hotel is just a short bus ride away from Palermo central. They offer parking free. There is a charge for breakfast but it is a good one where you fill your own cannoli. It is seaside with a big terrace overlooking the sea Prices are moderate. Mondello is a small town with beaches and good restaurants

Stayed: May 2018, travelled with family

Building not pretty and furnishing a bit tired but comfortable. This was made up by really amazing views due to great location. Good bar and breakfasts. Helpful staff. Swimming pools and sea bathing options excellent

The biggest downside to this plce are the dated rooms and food quality on the lower side of things. Having that said rooms are quiet and clean, breakfast delicious (however simple), staff lovely and very helpful. Views from the restaurants (breakfast served in a room on the 4th floor) and bar are gorgeous and if you aren't happy with the food in the hotel you're just a short walk from a vast selection of restaurants serving fantastic, fresh food at a very affordable price. Pool is beautifully settled with an option to swim in the sea if you prefer. We had an excellent time there and would definitely consider going back if ever again in this area.

Room Tip: rooms with the sea view are more expensive but seems renovated

Lots of PROs and CONs, especially if you are accustomed to hotels in the United States.

CONs: The hotel did not reserve rooms as described in our written reservation. They attempted to provide us with rooms but the rooms had broken AC units with temps of up to 95° (35C). After five room changes and two nights without AC (for half of our party), rooms with working AC were eventually provided. The hotel charges for parking and on-site parking is scarce, about 15 spots for cars and 30 spots for scooters/motorcycles. Additional parking is available about two blocks away on a one-way street. I mention the one-way street because if my family didn't walk with me, I'd have to drive 2-3 km in heavy traffic to make my way back to the hotel's main entrance.

PROs:
Location, location, location. The hotel has amazing room, restaurant, and pool views of the bay. The saltwater pool is fantastic, there is access to the sea, most staff speak enough English to get directions or take requests for food and beverages. The rooms are a decent size and the baths (for Italy) are huge. Nightlife begins about 7pm with dozens of nearby restaurants, bars, street vendors, shopping, beach access, and entertainment for all ages. Make sure to bring cash as some bars/restaurants and most street vendors do not accept credit cards.

Back to the rooms. Cleanliness is a 7/10. Mattress comfort is a 6/10. Of the five rooms we stayed in, all have a mini fridge but no cooktop or microwaves. Overall size is roomy. We did not find any on-site washing machines and the nearest laundromat was about 7 km from the hotel.

If you'd like to plan a picnic, Arancio Market is a Grocery Store located about a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Prices for meat, bread, and soda are about the same as the US, while some beer and wine are significantly cheaper (20-40% less)!

After staying two weeks in various hotels throughout Italy / Sicily, I felt Splendid Hotel La Torre was above average. For the Mondello area, it is probably one of the nicest hotels available at its price point.

Thoroughly enjoying our stay here - beautiful setting & most efficient staff - particularly Maria at reception, who couldn’t have been more helpful and gracious & Luigi who minded us well at the cocktail bar.
