This hotel is in serious need of paint. It was noisy all night. Breakfast was okay, but not Italian. The window opened to the view of a wall and a noisy ally. The metal chairs in the room induced torture. I offered to "talk."The bar closed at 9, forcing my wife and our author friend to find another on the street. My wife loves Palermo. We'll return to Palermo, but not to this hotel.
Noisy rooms, not just traffic but bad plumbing and diabolical air con units, a constant barrage. Bathroom floods if you use shower since drains not working. No working restaurant, but breakfast, in the cheap ibis style breakfast area was okay. Avoid.
This hotel is located in the center of Palermo. Great location and easy access to all, BUT the location is very noisy well into the middle of the night which made it difficult to sleep. The guest room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly and accommodating.
Nice enough European hotel. Small rooms, but nice bathroom. The walls needed cleaning or painting. Extra firm futon bed & rock hard pillows. Overall clean, wonderful front desk help, nice towels, and a great breakfast. It’s in the heart of the city & steps from the hop on/off bus.
Perfect hotel, staff and position. Very clean, rooms are good equipped and very large. Perfect WiFi. Nice breakfast - much better then ather hotels in Italy. Hotel has private parking that is very important for Palermo even you don't need car for Palermo visit because hotel is near city center (5 minutes walk from main city pedestrian street). A little bit noisy, but you are in city center and it is normal to have some noise. Really great place for staying in Palermo).
Hotel Garibaldi. Wonderful staff. Room was clean , not to much space in the room But clean. I just found the staff over the top friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. Nice hotel They had a special with pasta with pesto sauce, appetizer , water, and two cannoli for desert. 16 euro. Great dinner and price. I would stay there any time.
Reading everyone else's glowing report of this hotel, I feel rather mean that I am about to be critical. For me it is certainly not a four star, not sure why it has this rating except perhaps others in this bustling city are less good. Excellent location, cannot fault that. Within easy walking distance of many "must see" places in the city. We were on a Saga hoiday and were a pretty large group of forty-five, so our arrival, at what seems like the tradesmans entrance at the side, did not impress. Next a pretty confused booking in (by a bored looking young man behind reception, so no smile of welcome, he obviously thought, " not another group" ) and allocation of the rooms with the niggle of some rooms having balconies and others not, some being light and airy and other as was ours dark, when we had all paid the same, was disappointing, but in this case the problem might well be that Saga does not stipulate a regularity in standard and room size. The first room we were given was decidedly grimy, huge crepe sole footprints all over the tiled floor, particularily bad in the bathroom. Dirty looking net curtains which when I said as much to reception, I was told smuggly that they were grey to start with, yes that made me feel rather silly, but it was a very offputting effect. We were given another room which was smaller and also had footprints everywhere, but by this time we were hot tired and cross, so I threw in the towel as the porter told me that all rooms had footprints, I ask you, what do you answer to that ! As another review has stated, minimilistic decor in black and red, the red being a pierced metal chair, ( in my book, metal chairs and footprints do not a four star make ) However out of the four hotels we stayed at during this actually most enjoyable holiday, the Garibaldi won hands down on the breakfast spread. The food that was supposed to be hot, was hot and no lazy scrambled eggs, instead freshly fried eggs which were replenished regularly. Terrific choice of breads and sweet cakes buns and flans, fruit in abundance along with all the other usual breakfast foods. My only quibble re the dining area is that when there is more that one bus party there, as was the case during our stay, it was a bit tight and also a bit of a free for all finding a table. Beds were comfortable crisp fresh linen and loads of good sized towels and also a very quiet sleep considdering this hotel is in the middle of this very busy city. Would I go back if visiting Palermo again . . . . Perhaps, it is extremely well placed, but I would phone ahead and make sure I got a nicer room, of which there are many, but never four star.
On arrival we were given a room that was not in accordance with our booking and it was not of the same standard but upon bringing this issue up with the concierge we were given, the next day, a comparable room to the one we had booked. It was adequate in size with an en-suite, a/c, clean and with a comfortable bed. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to tourist sites, restaurants and shops. Provides a good continental breakfast. Staff were very helpful. Secure parking is available.
The hotel is in a very good area where all the designer shops are also situated. It is a short stroll from the teatro massimo and just next to the politaema. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is superb, seving a mixture of both English and Continental. The only downside ia that the minibar is a tad pricey, which puts you off using it. For the price paid one cannot ask for anything more. Verry happy!
Hotel Garibaldi is centrally located in Palermo, close to shops, restaurants and public transport. It's central location can make it a bit noisy - especially on the weekends. Our room was small compared to others we saw in the hotel and the shower over a deep bath could be challenging for some travelers-ask for a room with a separate shower if this is the case as they do have them. One of the few Italian hotels with tea making facilities in the room. Breakfast was reasonable but a bit chaotic when busy as it's split between 2 rooms. We attempted to settle our bar bill the night before an early departure only to be told to come back after midnight. It seemed unnecessary officious, but then the staff were mostly unhelpful with a few exceptions. Management should know how much rudeness takes away from the overall experience no matter what the standard of the accommodation. On a happier note, the central spiral staircase is a delight, and we rarely used the lifts!
