We arrived at the hotel having booked it for the wrong month. The very elegant receptionist didn't make a drama out of our unannounced arrival and gave us a reasonable rate - this was much appreciated, given I probably had already forfeited my deposit (100%) for not cancelling the previous months booking. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but giving your car key to the reception means they can move cars about to maximise the limited parking area.
Our room was large and modern, the bathroom was lovely and it had a great shower. The bed was large and comfy. We had free wifi, although I thought it was chargeable - maybe they took pity on me for my costly booking drama.
Garibaldi square is at the very centre of Palermo, driving there from the airport takes courage as the driving in the city is manic. All the big named shops are 5 minutes from the hotel and there is a huge choice of restaurants nearby. Both days we stayed there were events taking place around the square including a classic car/motorbike rally and a military band.
Overall we were very satisfied with the hotel and are happy to recommend it to others.
