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.
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.
We only stayed overnight, but the hotel and it's location deserved a much longer stay. Staff were very helpful, sent us to a lovely restaurant after our rather late book in. The room at the front was fabulous, despite reviews which said to avoid because of noise... With the windows closed this certainly was not an issue. The hotel has a steep set of stairs at the entry, which normally would have bothered us but staff made this very easy. We were treated to breakfast in our room, which was sensational. Highly recommend.
"Excellent location, great staff, very comfortable"
I've spent 5 days at Excelsior Hilton Palermo, and would strongly recommend it. Location is excellent, in a beautiful mail avenue with several fine restaurants and great boutiques, airport shuttle bus stops in front of the hotel, and old town with main attractions is within walking distance - some 10-15 min. Also local bus to great beach Mondello stops in front of the hotel. Staff is very pleasant and rich breakfast.
Only flaw: WIFI in room is charged (free only in the lobby)
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
