Dated hotel - nice foyer and breakfast room and good that breakfast stays open til later in the morning. The rooms are too dated and need refurbishing. Terrible bad quality prints on the walls that are not set properly in their frames. We also found a cockroach in the bathroom!

I cannot praise the staff enough, particularly the bar man/Butler! We stayed here for just over a week last Summer and it was perfect. Breakfast in the morning was faultless, location ideal if you want to walk round the city and easy access to the beach nearby. Room was spotless and received fresh towels every day.

I loved this place. The room was more than comfortable, the breakfast vast and satisfying, and the location perfect. Nearly every major point of interest was well within walking distance of the hotel. The staff was a bit chilly, but It was a luxurious place to lay my head in the evenings. The history of the hotel is fascinating and... More

I stayed here for three nights over the Easter weekend and was very happy. The room etc were good and the location was excellent. It was an easy walk to all of the major attractions and there are plenty of nice restaurants. I walked all over the old town, with one major hike to the capuchin catacombs (it's too far... More

We spent only one night in Palermo, having taken the ferry from Genova. The reception was efficient and friendly, but a bit overstretched - there should have been at least two people on duty on a busy Saturday evening. Our car was parked for us in a garage nearby (security was important fur us - the car was heavily loaded).... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The Easter breakfast, served on immaculate and elegant tables, was stunning, also for its great variety of Sicilian cakes and fresh fruit. Location to be recommended for its closeness to the city centre and its wonderful art treasures. Impressive Art Nouveau ambiance in the hotel lobby and dining room (also used for breakfast): an...

Very tired hotel. Rooms are dated and air conditioning doesn't work (reception acknowledge this but can't seem to do anything about it). Also, *everything* is extra. Wifi should be a free service in all hotels but at this one it's even charged per device, so two iPads and two iPhones per room comes to €36 per day. Ridiculous, and reception... More

You can tell this had to be the kind of hotel out of a Great Gatsby kind of movie but right now it needs to be revamped. The people working there do their best but need help. The rooms are beautiful but the carpets are stained and the balcony doors don't work very well, even the paintings on the wall... More

Tired old Hotel that is well past its prime. Internet is clunky and slow in lobby with frequent outages. Staff was nice and arranged a nice private tour for us w driver. Roome very dirty w black mold in tub and shower was a joke. Minibar was never replaced w plain non gas water in four days. Had two rooms... More

I have suprresed the "grand" from the tittle. It is still a Great hotel. But seems that the grandeur seems to be from years behind. It is still impressive and old Palazzo filled with history.I love the place, well situated with very large room. Should maybe need a refresh. But maybe the privce would not be the same... With charming... More
