We stayed for 10 days enjoying the Arabo-Norman and Sicilian baroque architectural marvels of Palermo, Monreale and Cefalu. The hotel location could not be better. It is between the old city and a new city shopping district just a walking distance to most churches, palaces, museums and traditional markets. The bus stop to the airport or the train station is just outside the hotel. Some good restaurants for a quick and good meal are also just near by. The famous Spinnato Antico Cafe, the place to indulge in an excellent chocolate with sicilian canoli is just around the corner.
The room rate is very affordable The staff is very professional and helpful. Our room was clean and calm on a high floor at the back ot the hotel although its equipment started to show an intensive use. Breakfast was basic and seems to be under the influence of the big turn over of tourist groups that fill the hotel without interruption. Otherwise how a hotel that claims to be a four stars one could sytematically serve cold bacon and eggs for breakfast, fruit juices in plastic glasses and tepid coffee ? But, taking all into account, the Hotel Garibaldi remains a good option for a Palermo stay and I would recomment it mainly for its location and affordability.
