We spent 2 enjoyable night at the Villa Igiea. We had to cut short our planned stay in Scopello due to a brush fire which caused evacuation of our hotel. We were flying out of Palermo and searched for a central hotel with a pool - to compensate for missing planned dips in Scopello. Got a good last minute rate... More

Beautiful hotel with stunning surrounds. Overall we were happy with this hotel because we just wanted to relax and enjoy the stunning views on our honeymoon. The hotel is quite remotely located to Palermo for those that want to do site seeing. Only negative about this place was being charged for internet which does not even occur in 2 star... More

My wife & I stayed here and it was really grand! Overlooking the marina but still very quiet to have a good night sleep. The hotel is like a museum!!

We stayed at the GHVI for 3 nights in early July 2014. The property is beautiful and overall well kept considering its age. The buffet breakfast was a delight, the setting wonderful and the service was excellent. Outside of breakfast, I found the service lacking for a hotel of this standing. We tried using the services of the Concierge one... More

Just came from a wonderful hotel in Siracusa. Igiea is interesting but has limits on food choices, amenities and is located in a ghetto. Staff were not very accommodating and just seemed so dissimilar from the encounters in our last hotel. Very disappointed. We had higher expectations based upon the pricing differences. I'm currently at the hotel

This hotel was a real haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. The setting is stunning. Our room was not great at first, small, and dark and old but we asked to get upgraded but they didn't have room until the last night. We had paid for an extra night but had to leave early so they didn't... More

Our room was huge, clean but rather dark. The location is a bit too far out of the city centre and the shuttle bus stopped about 8pm which meant the only way to get more choice on restaurants meant an expensive taxi ride. The restaurant at the Hotel was very expensive. We did however find two charming trattorias - La... More
