Reminiscent of the bygone era - an exceptionally beautiful building and the rooms/staff were great. Really good value too. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room was spectacularly amazing! Would have loved to stay longer in Palermo but we were flying out.

Very charming and majestic hotel though it is old and some parts are worn out. The rooms were large and everything well functioning. We had two great rooms in conjunction. Nice breakfast in beautiful banquet room. Great location close to the old city and shops.

While it is visible that the Hotel des Palmes might be far from its former glories, it remains an extremely beautiful, charming and comfortable place to stay in Palermo. The rooms are decorated in classic style and with extreme good taste. The hotel staff is dedicated but retains an unassuming attitude that matches the overall philosophy of the place. If... More

Wonderful hotel that once was the place the rich and influential stayed. Now anyone can be there at an extremely reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere and all facilities you would expect from a superior hotel. Breakfast is sumptuous and served in a grand room. Yes the rooms could be spruced up a bit, but overall this is a great place.

My partner and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Des Palmes for just one night while in Palermo this July and we would highly recommend it. Our room was huge and came at a price similar to many of the more mediocre hotels in the city. The hotel is beautiful and very grand as the name suggests. The have kept... More

Lovely hotel and staff. The hotel is slightly faded elegance, but this does not detract from the look of the place! It is surrounded by great shops and not a long walk from the historical centre. Good wifi and breakfast in a ballroom with a lot of choice.

The hotel is a little worn, but well-maintained and you can still see the original grandeur. The bar makes an excellent negroni. Very good service and breakfast buffet. The rooms were a good size with air conditioning and reliable internet. I would highly recommend the hotel.

The hotel is well located next to the historical center where it's easy to walk to. Unfortunately the building is in serious need of a proper renovation. My room (number 148) was located on the first floor looking on a courtyard which was quiet but meant we had a frosted window which looked on a wall...not particularly pleasant. We could... More
