              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Size of the room, quality of the bed, overall cleanness, interior of the house

                Rather poor choice of breakfast, waitingtime for coffee (cause fresh from the espressomachine - better would be the alternativ selfservice for coffee).

              • Couple
                8.2

                The room we had was very spacious and with the breakfast included, worked out at a very good deal. The staff were almost friendly, and its very well located within walking distance of most things.

                If there was real orange juice for breakfast, it would have been perfect.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Good central location for seeing sights of interest in Palermo. Interesting slightly faded air of elegance. Plenty of restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby.

                Quite difficult to drive to - a lot of traffic (Sicilian style!) and an awkward one-way system on Via Roma. Hotel could do with some valet parking signage on the frontage to make it clear where you can pull up and park. Staff were efficient, but not particularly friendly or welcoming. A few general maintenance issues - no hot water in shower; air conditioning did not seem to work.

              • Couple
                10.0

                The Grand in the name still applies today as it did when the hotel was one of the few original 4* in Town. It is not used to its full potetial, but then I wouldn't have liked it as much if it had been full of daytrippers or kids and families. It is perfectly located, it offers a great breakfast in a "grand" breakfast room and the staff was very welcoming. Do smile at them and they will smile back!

                I think that the restaurant was not being used, maybe they just use it for special occasions and it is a shame as it would bring a lot of people from outside and with them some needed atmosphere. Having said that, Palermo town centre is packed with lovely restaurants and it is a pleasure to walk around and explore. The nearby Teatro Biondi Bar served wiked Campari aperitif and a tray of canapes for Euro 5.00!!!

                The comfort, cleanliness, service, location, design and good breakfast. Certainly good value for money.

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                I enjoyed proximity of the beach and of Ortigia without having the hustle of it. Beautifull breakfast.

                It took me 2 hours to find the Hotel driving with an accurate gps car navigation unit. At the end, I found that the reason of such a difficulty was the fact that there was no signpost indicating the hotel. This must be changed asap !!!

                Very pleasant stay. The staff was particularly helpful and very courteous. A really good price for what it offers. And that decor!!!

                Everything! The location the staff, the place in its historical charme

                Nothing ,,, only maybe the fruit missing at breakfast..

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                We loved this place!! Our room with a balcony was just gorgeous....immaculate. The A/C was good and strong which was well appreciated after coming in from the hot Palermo sun. The hotel is on the cusp of the old city and new city so the location is perfect for walking to everything. Our car was retrieved from the garage in less than 5 minutes, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was outstanding. We are a flexible American couple and when it comes to international travel, we are very accepting of the local culture and the differences from our own country. Take some time to learn Italian and use it....and don't be an obnoxious American. They will love you for it.

                We received a warm and helpful welcome both times we stayed and they gave us the same room 10 days apart which was nice and spacious.The restaurant information was just what we were looking for. Well placed for all central Palermo and the airport bus stop which was only 300 yards away.

                The carpets were very grubby and stained in our room

                Friendly staff, great breakfast room, central location.

                Air conditioner in room did not seem very effective. The room was a little warm overnight

                A lovely, old grand hotel that might not have all modern facilities, but has preserved a charm of Palermo past. Most of all, staff are friendly and happy to help with any request. Also, breakfast in the room with a huge chandelier and a fair amount of guilding is the only way to start the day. One of those places that you can go back again and again.

                I liked least the service at the front desk,they were rude unhelpful & downright arrogant especially those on evening duty. it was horrific. What I like is that I never have to stay there again, thanks for that small mercy.
