“good but not great”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Spent 3 nights here...it is good but not great. Positives are plumbing is good and breakfast is very good and staff is helpful and very skilled and air con is pretty good. Also hotel is near a lot of transport if you do not have a car and that includes near bus to Segesta. Negatives include lots of car noise, not many facilties (really none) and it is too sterile and plain. Overall opinion is if you get a good deal on prices it is fine otherwise there are better options. Also groups can takeover the plece and push around solo guests. (Bus to Segesta leaves from front of Prada store at 8am and takes about an hour..do not bother with the Segesta bus line office ironically they do not go to Segesta it is the Trantola bus line and you pay on board)

As Mentioned elsewhere the Garibaldi is on the modern Styling side of things (works well in the hotel).

Rooms are spacious and clean (top marks to the housecleaning team), if you're lucky you might get a view over the Opera house and square (but with this you get the noise from the traffic and general hustle and bustle of palermo). All in all its all you would expect of a decent 4*

Reception staff were good. Breakfast was good, although its best to avoid the really busy times as you can end up taking tables in the reception area. But the options for breakfast are plentiful.

Only minor things (if you are travelling with a buggy or wheelchair the steps down to the reception can be a bit of an annoyance). Wifi is charged for, but nothing major.

The location is great as it is outside the main bus stops (airport & mondello beach).

Palermo is a great place to visit, and the Garibaldi is a great place to stay (that is unless you get to stay at one of the fab B&B's in Palermo)

Just returned home from a week long stay.
Chose this hotel on the back of good on-line reviews and was not disappointed.
First visit to Palermo, hotel situation was perfect. Airport bus stops almost at the front door. The open top City Sightseeing tour starts right outside.
The room was comfortable with a very generously sized bathroom.
The staff from the front desk to the chambermaid were friendly and helpful.
If you're planning a visit to Palermo you won't go wrong booking in here.

Stayed in deluxe room on the fifth floor. Lovely seating area and balcony, two huge beds and smart shower room with feeble shower. Very good service at reception but no bar area or restaurant and as we arrived late and hungry would have been useful. Breakfast was excellent with hot and cold available, even Sicilian style bacon and fried eggs. Great choice of continental food as well. Some rooms faced the front of the hotel and were very noisy, no surprise for a city.
Very clean, excellent wi fi area at no charge. Secure Parking also free.

We stayed three times at this hotel during our stay in Palermo and each time had a different room and all were terrific. The bathrooms were very good sizes and the beds were confortable and firm.
Gaia at the front desk was outstanding helping us with our enquiries and suggested other places for us to visit and eat. She would always say"If you are happy then I am happy too".
The breakfast was good and the hotel was next to the hop on hop off bus, local buses to the railway station and the airport bus.

While this hotel is not located near the main train station, it is easily accessible by taxi. The hotel has an odd entrance, but the rooms and location are amazing! Most rooms have a balcony and a nice, large bathroom.

For parties of 3, there is great privacy for the third person at night.

Room Tip: ask for room with a balcony
