Palermo, good old Palermo. As abandoned, backwards and godforsaken as always. Neither your people improve: 1. Either ignorant: I was not able to find anybody able to tell me your population or the name of the President of Italy, a brilliant gentleman who not only is a native but his last name can be frequently found written in stone around town; 2. Or indolent, like the taxi driver annoyingly offering his services for the full day while mad at me for trying to buckle-up; 3. Showing your traditional violence, like cars and bikes forcing their way through pedestrians while a police officer watching the scene laughing. Unbelievable? No, it is Palermo, it is Sicily, it is South Italy 4. Above all, the pathetic pride of being conquered by anyone who tried. Indeed a land of contradictions:tourist offices closed on Sundays but excellent free tourist buses that save you the risk to walk down the slums surrounding Cuba or Zisa Palaces, slums that, by the way, do have street signing, something almost absent in Centro Storico. All services, either be lodging, food operations of any kind, transportation, along with facilities such as the train station and its joke of an airport are substandard to say the least but greatly overpriced. Gran Hotel Wagner is not alien to these circumstances. While its location is inconvenient because it is in the very margin of Centro Storico I must say that the building in general is in good condition, rooms are acceptably clean while the breakfast is good. But along came those frequent little irritating details reminding me that indeed I was staying in a five-star hotel but Palermo style.Here follows a sample: • The front desk man vigorously resisting to give more than one sheet of paper from the printer; • The same attitude from a housekeeper towards my request for an extra towel; • The waiter who, every single time he cleared the table, dangerously dropped the silverware, knifes included; • The barman who vanished to have long, long chats with the “manager on duty”; • Front desk staff ignorant of the aforementioned bus; • The used (not by me) bottle of water found in my mini-fridge and duly charged to my account, an incident that let me uneasy but was never cleared by the hotel; • Three useless electric outlets in my room; • Non-existent internet in ground floor, including reception, lobby areas and lobby bar. Do visit Palermo. Its fascinating story and art is worth the penance but do book a hotel in the very Centro Storico and make your stay as short as possible. -

After a rather indifferent hotel experience in Rome, the Grand Hotel Wagner was a welcome change. Their staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed. The bed was comfy, and wow... those blackout curtains really black out the room. Slept like a rock. Breakfast was OK, plenty to choose from, if not particularly high quality. My only complaints is that it seems the temperature control in the room doesn't really work. You can adjust it, turn it off, whatever, it just resets to what it was before. The front desk folks can make the change, but, it seems pretty much a choice of too hot or too cold. Otherwise, my Mom-in-Law didn't find the coffee really good unless lots of milk was added.

The Hotel building is impressive but the staff and the service they provide is absolutely first class. It is probably rude to single out individuals when everyone was friendly, helpful and efficient but Giselle and Vim were particularly helpful with additional touches. Thank you both. The Hotel is well placed in the historic part of the city; the major attractions and shops are all within a comfortable walking distance. There are very good restaurants within 200 yards of the hotel (try Lato B, Locale & Quartino d’elite). The Hotel is decorated in classic Italian style. The rooms were great (very clean and well presented) and the bed was unbelievably comfy. The breakfast buffet was perfect, everything you would expect, including prosecco if you wish. The canoli is filled as it is served to ensure the pastry case stays crisp. Buonissimo. Highly recommend the Grand Hotel Wagner. You won’t be disappointed.

We stay at Grand Hotel Wagner 6 days in September 2021. Director of the hotel young and energetic Gisella Catanzaro. The hotel has old charm. Everything pleases your look. The reception desk was hospitable: We came before check-in time – they organized the cleaning and gave us a cozy room. Our room has good old furniture with touch of Sicilian baroque, solid fixtures, Murano glass chandelier and heavy silk curtains. But bathroom was completely modern with good pressure shower. Room service was immaculate. The breakfast was served on the terrace, quite “ascetic” and it falls out from the rest of the hotel. The breakfast was satisfying. Next time we definitely will stay at this hotel and take a suite.

This is exactly the type of hotel I prefer when in Europe as it has that classic, old world European charm and elegance. We also appreciated the generous buffet breakfast. My husband uses the quality of hot chocolate as his benchmark and this hotel met his exacting standards. Bet if all though is Wim, the manager and concierge. He went above and beyond for us. If for no other reason I would recommend this hotel just for Wim’s gracious hospitality.
