If you want to experience the grandeur of days past stay here! Everyone in town knew where this hotel was and it has an incredible reputation. I cannot say enough about my stay. It was wonderful from the moment I stepped in the door. The staff was incredibly kind, accomodating and truly cared. The room was beautiful and very clean. My luggage had been lost by airline and the hotel couldn't do enough to make up for it. I feel honore to have been able to stay at such a landmark hotel! I intend to stay here again upon my return.
Very pleasant hotel with very helpful staff - we stayed for four nights and found the whole experience very restful. The breakfast was good and the bar provided a very good range of cocktails in the evening.
The hotel is close to the airport bus stop. It is situated opposite Prada and Politeama Hotel. It costs 6.30 Euros per person to the airport. Tickets are purchased on the bus. If purchasing bus tickets for around Palermo you can buy these from a kiosk. It is better to buy tickets for multiple days as this is the cheaper option. Otherwise a single trip ticket is valid for only 90 minutes from the time you punch it in.
For a family pizza try Dimas for 12.50 Euros. Excellent quality, and only a short walk away from the hotel. A number 806 bus will take you to the seaside. The number 101 bus will take you to Independence Piazza from where you can catch the 389 to the catacombs. 101 stops just outside the hotel.
Great location! Close to Theatre Massimo (opera house), airport shuttle, train and bus station, the cathedral,
the market - we walked for hours and enjoyed the experience. The room was great, the staff were
friendly and helpful. Some touches that stood out were - a bowl of fresh apples in the main check-in area, as well
as a jug of water that included fresh lemon slices. We had an excellent meal at the roof top restaurant.
Even though we were on a busy street it was very quiet. Would definitely return.
We had an excellent holiday . The hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We were able to walk into the centre of Palermo easily from the hotel, but staff also gave advice on other places to visit. Their recommendations for restaurants were excellent. Our room was a good size and comfortable with air conditioning . The hotel is clean and welcoming. You have a lovely variety of food at the breakfast buffet.
From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was light and spacious and well furnished with lots of storage space and the free wifi enabled us to book tickets for the Oprea House and the Concert Hall. The hotel is well located: a short walk from the market and close to many places of interest and fantastic restaurants. We would certainly use it again.

A unique beauty. A beautiful building, recently restored masterfully contrast of colors and quality materials. The Palace …More
The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The hotel was spotless. Breakfast was amazing, lots of fresh fruit, pastries, croissants, coffee. There is ham and cheese all very fresh and well presented.
The swimming pool is lovely and well looked after, an abundance of comfortable sun beds. We had a lovely treat every afternoon when we were given a slice of watermelon as we sat round the pool.
