Quirky BoBo shrewdly combines the bourgeois with the bohemian—in fact, the hotel's name subtly references David Brooks's thought-provoking book Bobos in Paradise, about the blurred lines between these two concepts. Each of the simply furnished rooms has a different motif, such as art deco, minimalist, and techno. All have creature comforts like soft robes, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi access. The downstairs restaurant-café is a nice place to relax after pounding Palermo's pavement all day.

All of the staff at this hotel are very helpful and friendly. Food in the restaurant is very good. Feels like more of an intimate b&b than a hotel. Try to avoid staying in the most basic rooms as they are on the small side

I spent the nights of June 6 and 7, 2009 at Bobo, and stayed at the minimalist room (number 3). My first impression of the hotel was poor, having arrived in town at 3 pm on Saturday, and being unable to get some rest in the room due to the drilling and hammering going on next door. I would have appreciated the staff warning me about this fact at the time of making the booking. The noise can be extremely loud, and is supposed to continue for a while
(I checked with the front desk as to when they expected the construction work to be over). A sceond element that reduced my enthusiasm for the hotel was the poorly made bed (wrinkled sheets included), the low quality of the towels and bath robes provided, and the fact that the housekeepers did not provide me during my stay with shower caps and on one occasion even forgot to leave soap. On the positive side, the front desk staff were extremely helpful and pleasant.
