We were for a few days in Palermo. The hotel is very well located. We changed room because we didn't like it and they were very helpful. It's a huge hotel, actually it takes a while to get to your room, but the location is fantastic so is the place itself, an old private house (huge by the way!!). Old... More

We stayed four nights at this hotel, as part of an organized tour. The hotel most have been "grand" in its heyday but in the present/today, it is somewhat run down. The carpets in the staircase, as well as the elevators, could use some refurbishing. Our room was very small but functional. There was no free internet in the rooms,... More

Such character, take the time to sit in the lobby bar and enjoy a beverage while watching people going about their business. Has a real 'old world' feel to it. Carpeting needs to be replaced it is pretty ragged in some places...but it IS very good quality. Rooms are very nice, with a lovely bathroom. Spacious. Breakfast is beautiful The... More

Great hotel, full of character. The hotel has a beautiful main entrance, very appealing and with lots of classic charm, we'll worth a visit. Grand is within walking distance of all the major sights in Palermo.

This hotel is the live witness of a era of opulence of the city of Palermo, capital of the region of Sicily and once one of the most influence city of western Europe. Well maintained, still preserve the beauty of the past with stained glass windows, mirrors, paintings, furniture and the charm of the old good days. Very well located,... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in early November with my husband while visiting Sicily. Since it was supposedly the "off season" in Sicily, we had absolutely no problems getting around. No crowds at any sites, or in this hotel. This hotel must have been something in its heyday! But now it is in dire need of a... More

Stayed here for four nights in Nov. This must have been a spectacular hotel back in the day because some of the common rooms and the lobby are very grand. As some of the other reviews have mentioned it does need some work, but overall really not that bad. The only complaint was that the hot water in our room... More

Visiting Sicily for the first times for just a few days, it was important for my aunt and to stay in a central location. Only 30 mins from the airport and a 10 min walk to the central station/heart of Palermo shopping and eating district, with amazing weather to look forward too, we couldn't have asked for more. On top... More

This hotel is in a beautiful building, which unfortunately has not been maintained well. The hotel needs to be renovated urgently. The room (not just mine, but also rooms from colleagues) had this typical smell of an old house that has been empty for a while. Carpets and curtains were worn out and stained. Service at the bar was lousy.... More

As soon as you arrive you can tell that something is missing. The property looks like it has potential but with no doorman somehow the "grand" does not apply. The common rooms lack pizzazz. The carpets in the hallway are worn. There is a drabness about the place. But, the rooms are large and very clean, the bathroom in our... More
