Open since 1998 and completely renovated in 2010, Hotel Principe di Villafranca rises in the heart of the most eclectic and modern district of Palermo. The hotel, belonging to The HotelSphere group, is a sophisticated and peaceful environment where to relax in the middle of the bustling city center. A refined, sober atmosphere fills the common areas: the bright, clear colors of the hall and lounges highlight the fine fabrics and décor details, while masterpieces by ancient Sicilian furniture makers combine with precious contemporary paintings and remarkable antiques. Guests can plunge into a book in the library or chat in the fireplace room; the lounge bar, decorated with Liberty touches and design lamps, is the perfect place where to have a glass of the finest Sicilian and Italian wines, while the breakfast room, elegant and full of light, is the ideal place to start the day with a wide variety of fresh, local produce, both sweet and savory. In the 32 rooms, guests will be carried away to an incredibly fascinating pure, timeless dimension. The essential shapes of furnishings and lamps, made with unusual materials such as resin, concrete and brushed steel, are skillfully highlighted by the total white environment and by the bold colors of paintings by contemporary local artist Simona Cavaglieri.
