The location is really good, everything within walking distance. Not for any one who wants modern décor as the charm/period decor of this hotel is apparent throughout. We did not eat in the hotel but the restaurant has very impressive view. The breakfast spread was extensive compared to other Italian hotels I have stayed in with eggs cooked fresh to... More

Palermo Centrale Hotel is located ten meters from Quatro Canti Square, Pretoria Square, Bologna Square and it has som turn of the century décor. The décor is bold, excessive in the common areas and gives a great idea what is really Sicily. The reds, the marbles, the mosaics and the gold stucco. Bedroom is set with a calmer soothing color...

May have been concerned with other reviews which indicated a faded past but our experience was truly exceptional. Cool interior, lovely room, beautiful common rooms decorated with antiques. Breakfast was sumptuous and roof top dining Ai Tetti could not be faulted. We ate some of the best meals in Sicily - fine dining overlooking the rooftops. Staff were lovely both... More

I have heard a conception that the Northern Italians hold their Southern cousins to be lazy and snobby. While I'm sure that his stereotype, like all generalisations, is unfair, the staff at this hotel seemed to go out of their way to affirm it. While our room was clean and quite comfortable, the whole building seemed to have seen better... More

My friend and I only planned to spend a night in Palermo due to an early flight departing the next morning. We booked the Centrale Palace based on reviews here and it was above the average price point for the area. Putative 4 stars. The location is ideal, about 15 minutes from the train station and Palermo is easy to... More

We booked a triple room in advance here in July 2015 at a superb rate! What can i say... the hotel was wonderful in EVERY way! Room, staff, decor, food, location, service etc. Stylish faded grandeur and real Sicilian hospitality. Our 9 year old daughter [thinks she] does not like anything but modern 4/5* clinical north european type hotels but... More

You cannot beat this location! It is right in the center of downtown Palermo, steps from restaurants, shops, the seaside. It is just a few steps from the main walking street. Excellent gelato all around. The hotel itself is an historic grand palazzo, which makes for an interesting and delightful experience. We found the staff to be extremely helpful.

We stayed at the Hotel “Centrale Palace Hotel” for two nights, in June 2015. Second time it was triple room #422. Everything was very good. Hotel situated in real geographical and historical center of Palermo, just several meters from Quatro Canti or Four Corners at Corso Vittorio Emanuele. It takes equal only ten minutes to get Palermo Cathdral by walk.... More

Great Location. Rooms clean and roomy. Best FREE Breakfast ever. Pizza, Salami, salmon, fruit, salads, eggs, bacon, etc. Great Value! We stayed there six nights but were not able to eat at the roof top restaurant for three of those nights as they booked a large party. That was a bummer!!!!
