This is indeed a Grand hotel. You can actually get lost in this old building. There are many staircases which lead to interesting historic rooms. The marble staircase is wondrous. Excellent position tucked away, but very central. Our room was quite small but comfortable. Well furnished with quality. It is pleasant to sit in the atrium and relax. Close by... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. It is well located back from the busy main streets of Palermo, but within easy walking distance. The renovations have successfully retained the feel of a grand, central bank, with large public spaces, such as the central atrium, and marble stairways between the floors, as well as the modern elevators. The room... More

Staying here actually reminded me of the film -Grand Hotel Budapest! Kind of old fashioned, traces of grandure from times gone by and a unique quirkiness. It was originally built as a bank, and the original open courtyard has been turned into a glass roofed seating area, we sat there for a while one evening drinking prosecco and enjoying aperitivo...

We stayed here three nights, and felt that it was a great base for exploring Palermo and northern Sicily. The location is in the historic center of Palermo (not the nice shopping district). Our room was very large, and had a nice outdoor terrace. In fact, it was one of the largest hotel rooms we had in Italy. The hotel... More

Great hotel the place is beautiful and the staff was great. We were only there for one day as we were leaving the next morning. It is a shame the area it is in as it it is a little shaky and very much in the middle of the city. I would stay there again.

Spent two night here. The room was spacious, and nicely appointed. The staff was very helpful, with making dinner reservations, recommending sites etc. Had a nice time, and would stay there again if visiting.

We ended our 10day tour of Sicily at the Borsa - the staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. Its not the easiest place to find if you're driving (and i'd seriously suggest you avoid the stress of driving in Palermo by dropping off the rental before you arrive, not wanting to be disrespectful but driving in the narrow streets with...

Well run hotel in well-renovated lovely building. Very good staff and helpful. Central court is lovely and a good place to sit, read, drink, etc. Nice to have this space. Rooms very comfortable with all needed elements. (Fitness center a bit tiny and only moderately equipped - but this seems a European tradition.)

We have stayed in this hotel with its very nice central lobby with a group of 29 persons. All were very happy with the rooms, the facilities and the breakfast. Only wifi is not available in the rooms, but in a free weekend , this is not a decisive hurdle ! plenty of things to do very close to the... More

I am surprised at the complaints regarding breakfast and wi-fi. Having stayed in many hotels all over Italy the Borsa had a very good breakfast selection, including eggs, meats, cheeses, cereals, pastries, jams, etc. I'm not sure what more one could want (unless you expect to be treated like a king). It's true - there is no room wi-fi. You... More
