Once a private home, this palace is now a luxury hotel. Our room had two views, one onto the garden and the other onto the bay of Palermo. The breakfast offering was generous, to say the least. The atmosphere of the dining room was very romantic and the service at the highest international standard, Valet parking was included in the... More

.... The shower was inundating the bathroom, because the door of the shower was not tight., which caused my wife to fall and hurt her shoulder. The window shutters were rotted etc. You should undertake a major refurbishment of your hotel .....

This hotel is a 10/15 minute drive from the buzz of central Palermo. Depending on the kind of holiday you are after that could be a good thing (peaceful & fresh) or a bad thing 15EU one way to get to town. It stands just a few metres from the sea front, and looks out onto a pretty harbour/ marina.... More

This hotel is a must stay when visiting Palermo for at least two reasons. First, Palermo is not as much beautiful city as Rome or Florence so the décor of the hotel will help you deal with that. The hotel was build in the 19th century and was decorated in Art Nouveau style. Second, the hotel is in fact very... More

We stayed here for 8 days in June 2013 and enjoyed it. A slightly run-down neighbourhood but the hotel itself is lovely with good gardens and a nice pool area overlooking the sea. We particularly liked being away from the madness that is Palermo - driving is a bit of a nightmare! The concierge was very helpful in terms of... More

That title just about sums it all up. We had nice rooms with terraces overlooking the marina, but the hotel is a bit tired and dated.. it probably was grand once, but that must have been a while ago. Our tour guide told us that this was the best hotel to stay in in Palermo, which says it all. Palermo... More
