“Terrible location - difficult to find even with Sat-Nav and very edgy!!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We drove to hotel following directions on Sat-Nav but since access to hotel is only possible through a warren of very narrow and edgy streets, some of which close on market days, we eventually gave up and had to resort to hiring a taxi (€15 for the privilege) and following it to find hotel.
Pedestrian access is via the same poorly lit streets and another guest had her necklace torn from her neck in broad daylight within fifty metres of hotel. Incidentally, the same thing happened to my wife the previous evening, but in our case it happened on Via Napoli, some distance from hotel, so we can't blame that on hotel location although this problem seems to be endemic in Palermo.
When booking, we had requested a quiet room with bath, away from lift - we got a room with shower right beside the lift. Despite advertising WiFi throughout hotel there was no service available in our room on first floor -I mentioned this to desk who promised to resolve it but nothing improved.
Before leaving, I needed to phone the company from whom we had rented a car in Catania and asked for assistance from front desk since there was no service on my cellphone in the reception area. The young lady behind the desk although polite, suggested that I step outside the hotel where reception would be better, even though I clearly needed to refer to documents and take notes etc. - hence my rating on service.
The room itself and bathroom were fine, but €12 p.p. for breakfast is a bit steep on top of room rate, particularly in view of the lack of acceptable alternatives in the immediate area.

Room Tip: If driving, get clear directions from hotel - don't rely on Sat-Nav/Google maps as they don'...

Despite the fact that we booked this hotel for 5 nights we were given the smallest room with kitchenette being torn out of the wall. We're told by Samuel in the front that had we booked it directly and not through Venere we could have gotten an upgrade since those guys work on commission. But the neighborhood is the real problem. Unsafe, dirty even by Palermo standards, seedy! The room was clean. Bathroom was modern and nice.

I have stayed here several times in the past 12 months and just love it. Initially I was a bit wary of the area but it's actually a really interesting mixture of ancient, restored, bombed, cultural and ethnic. The shabby but fabulous Ballaro market is on the doorstep. So too is an incredible church, library, handbag shop and somewhere I bought an incredible necklace (E15 for spoon handles!)
The hotel is really comfortable with great linen, bathrooms, fridges, spoiling Ortigia products in the bathrooms and outstanding staff. The breakfast is great ( expensive if not included so if you are into roughing it, head to the market, turn left and stop at the first coffee shop. Breakfast will be E6 for 2). Sadly I have never had a chance to eat at the chic restaurant within the hotel but all I know who have, say it's really fab. The menu looks great and I see the wine cave winking at me whenever I walk past. So thank you Palazzo Brunaccini - I love what you do and what you offer.

Room Tip: I have stayed in 3 rooms and they they are all different but great. They are all of the same standar...

The view is central urban Palermo - a mixture of old, new, restored and under restoration....... We stayed here the last two nights of our stay in Sicily and it was just perfect - location and the hotel. We were able to happily walk to all the major sites and out of dinner on both evenings. The day before we were due to arrive we received an email from the hotel with driving directions and we found the hotel without any issue - other than having to drive past the local church, just as all the guests were arriving for a wedding - fortunately our little Fiat 500 was able to cope and we didn't have any problems with parking in the piazza outside the hotel, leaving the key with the hotel in case it needed to be moved. Our room was spacious and beautifully done, comfortable bed with crisp linens and a lovely big shower with fluffy showers (a bath might have been nice for the space available). Though oddly it appears to have been a studio apartment before and there was still evidence of this in the cupboards. We paid the extra for breakfast on the first day, but really think that for the rate the hotel was charging for the rooms that breakfast should have been included in the price (the only real negative about the hotel, and we knew that before we arrived that that was the situation, so not really a negative). Breakfast was served in a lovely sun filled outside courtyard.
Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a short city break spot.
And directions to the airport on our morning of departure were perfect too.
Thank you

We stayed here the first 3 and last night from our stay in Sicily.
The hotel was really difficult to find at first (since it was dark, there are a lot of one-way streets), but the second time it was easy to find! So I would advice navigation if you are getting there by car or just some patience and a map.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is a old palazzo which has been completely restored in a modern/old style. The rooms are nice and the restaurant is good and set in a beautiful garden. The hotel is centrally located and thus a perfect place to start discovering Palermo.

I can sumarize as a perfect combination of location (centre), style (smart renovation of an historical place, a series of design furniture and art piecees in exhibition), very professional and friendly personal, large and clean rooms, silence in the centre of Palermo, and a great breakfeast (una collazione della madona).

Room Tip: For a romantic trip, for a toursim trip where the situation is central, for business meetings,
