Having never been to Italy, i must say this was pleasant hotel. Full of character and clean. Staff very welcoming and with my minimal italian skills i manage to ask if they did speak english ... of which they did which made life easier to a certain extent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location of the hotel is such a plus,... More

The grand Hotel et des palmes was exactly what we were looking for. Travelling throught the history of major peoples of history, while having great and huge room, a complete breakfast, cappucinos and fresh squeezed orange juice. In empty seasons, the prices are very reasonnable regarding the service quality. Great experience !

I've heard that Palermo is a city of contradictions, well, so is this hotel. It is not an "average" hotel by any means, yet, not the 5 star that it could be. I rented 3 rooms for our family. The location is great, the lobby, like a museum with beautiful statues, the breakfast abundant and delicious, the rooms spacious, very... More

I've read the other reviews, and so I won't lie and say that this hotel couldn't do with a facelift, new carpets, but they're clean despite a few wear marks, some new wallpaper, etc. But the bathrooms are exquisite, the beds super comfortable and the rooms of ample size. The lobby of this hotel is magnificent as is the breakfast... More

Great historic hotel with classic Italian interior. Stayed here for 3 nights in late December. We got very good deal via booking.com as it was low season. I understand that this hotel is quite pricey in the summer. We had spacious room with rather small bathroom.

The hotel was not at all like we've thought it would be. The bathroom did not have warm water for a long periode of time, it was nasty (cockroaches every where, nasty smell of urine YUK!!). The staff was way too loud in the early morning, even for Italian standards, so be prepared to sleep only between the band has... More

Our stay at this hotel over the Christmas holiday was in all ways enjoyable. The public areas were beautiful and well-maintained, our room and bath were fully renovated - comfortable bed, marble bath with new fixtures and plenty of hot water, and the heat was on 24/7, unusual in Italy and very much appreciated. The staff could not have been... More

We stayed here on a family trip across Sicily and liked it a lot. The rooms are spacious, with luxuriously high ceilings, and we were happy with the cleanliness and comfort. The location is convenient to the center of Palermo and the price was reasonable. That said, the property has seen better days. The carpets are worn, our shower didn't... More

The hotel is located in the center of town and probably within walking distance of most of the local sightseeing you will wish to see. The historic hotel is undergoing some renovation and the rooms we occupied were quite nice; adequate size and furnishings. Some of the hallways had been updated while others had not. While the lobby is not... More

I selected Grand Hotel based on reviews, photos and location. The foyer was grand, charming with an old world appeal taking you back in time. The personnel at the front desk were pleasant enough at their job. Our room #127 (missing 1 from brass plate) was located on the first floor (second in the U.S.). It was spacious with lovely...
