Old Room & New Room

Initially they gave me an quite old rather big room with big a key to open the room door. After walking through the other section of the hotel, we found a newly renovated room. So, please ask them a renovated room when you are check-in. It is bit old story anyhow.

A Treat of a Retreat

The Grand Hotel etc is a wonderful, atmospheric and slightly faded hotel which cannot but evoke feelings of another century. I've never stayed in a hotel with such individual style. And the facilities are very good, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms spacious with a bath in which I could really stretch out. The staff were efficient and courteous. Everyone should try the experience of a predinner cocktail in the hotel reception room.... you get a decent drink and plenty of side nibbles. And there are plenty of spacious function rooms on the ground floor to which one can retreat and have a quiet read in 19th century surroundings, If you have the money to spend it may be worth your while to check out their dinner menu (not promoted very well hence we only learned of it on our last night but the dining room looked and sounded very lively).

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cross Via Roma from the hotel entrance and turn left Turn right, down the first road you come to and walk towards the harbour. less than 100m there are good restaurants on either side of the road. Or turn left after crossing Via Roma and turn left down the first road you come to and walk towards the harbour. After 300m there is a good restaurant on the left side of this road. All are friendly and have generous portions of good food.

Great stay.

Hotel staff was great, we'd booked a room with two beds but got a room with only one. They gave us another room free of charge. Great location, beautiful hotel, nice staff.

Great hotel, good location, fabulous decor

We absolutely loved our stay here. The breakfast room is stunning, as is the buffet breakfast. Really comfortable rooms, very clean. The location is perfect for walking around Palermo. Easy to find as it is on a main street and yet the room was quiet at night. Staying here made our short break in Palermo really special.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Don't bother booking the advertised excursions to Mondello beach - the public bus is just 5 mins from the hotel and cheap. Cefalu is beautiful and easy to reach by the regular train service.

A Grand Hotel from Another Era

This grande dame of a hotel will transport you back in time. With the brass, red carpets, ornate salons and antiques, you can just imagine the likes of Wagner composing Parsifal here (he did), spies, diplomats and politicians mixing over glasses of Marsala (they did). But fortunately the rooms have been modernized where it counts (the bathrooms). Staff were super friendly and helpful, breakfast was sumptuous and served in a beautiful, ornate dining room, and location was very convenient just on the edge of the historical district within easy walking distant to sites, restaurants and nice shops. If you are looking for the predictable sameness of a Hilton or a Hyatt, look elsewhere. If you want to stay in a hotel like hotels used to be, you won't be disappointed here.

For a real back-in-time experience, have a drink in the historical hotel bar and pretend you are scheming to create (or destroy) a new government.

Faded Glamour but great location

The location of the hotel was great. The rooms were large and clean. Breakfast was good if you got there early.. ..things seem to run out quickly.
