You really need to like "old world style" to enjoy this hotel. Some people might just see it as old and tired! We loved it. The rooms and bathrooms are large, comfortable and well appointed. On the down side you really need to pay extra for the sea view rooms as the other rooms look onto the street. The bar... More

If you want quite, tasteful, elegance and class. This is the spot. From the staff to the rooms to the meals not a issue is overlooked. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is like a dream. Totally wheelchair accessible and friendly. I would recommend on a heartbeat

My three night stay in September 2016 was wonderful. A beautiful, classic hotel located on the coast and away from the noise and dirt of downtown Palermo, the Igeia has lovely gardens and incredible water views. It is a perfect base for exploring Palermo, Segesta, Monreale or even Agrigento and Salinunte. It's also a great place to relax, with a... More

This hotel has been a highlight in our trip of Sicily so far. Yes it's expensive but what an experience, one we won't forget. From the moment we arrived reception were very helpful, my wife had lost her luggage at Catania Airport and we had a lot of laundry to do, it was in at 2pm and returned by 8pm... More

We do not believe there is a better place to stay in Palermo. The location is ideal for those who prefer to stay away from the hustle and bustle. Villa Igiea is a restored villa, but you can still see original frescoes and furniture. It is a beautiful historical building and the gardens are wonderful. The downfall to a historical... More

Best place I stayed in Italy. Very fine, room was gorgeous, bathroom clean and lovely toiletries. Staff was extremely friendly - not always easy to come across, especially in Sicily! Stayed at a sister hotel in Taormina (San Domenico Palace Hotel) which didn't have a patch on this place! The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the water was like being... More

This is a beautiful property with excellent facilities and grounds. The location is outside of Palermo which is not entirely convenient for sightseeing but allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle after a day in town. There is a shuttle service but it ends quite early and taxis are surprisingly expensive. Unfortunately many of these positives were... More

For the first time we booked a hotel and all our travel through British Airways. The flights were fine, car hire was fine but a lot of extras and very slow to get the car!
