This is indeed a grand hotel, in that it is large and comfortable. Converted from a former bank it misses something that really grand hotels have, a sense of history perhaps and of tradition. It seems a little unloved. The hotel is in a great location for tourist sites, perfect in fact. It is located in a quiet square off... More

A classic hotel type in a central location with many sights and restaurants within walking distance. My third floor room looked into the inner courtyard and was quiet. There was a step between the bedroom proper and the entrance area and bath and also steps within the corridors. Hotel website did not mention hairdryer (so I brought mine) but there... More

We stayed 2 days and loved the hotel. We had a large room with a very large bathroom. Breakfast was good, with lots of choices/options. The location is great as you can walk to the Cathedral, the theater, the sea, and there is good shopping within a five minute walk. Also many restaurants nearby.

the location is great. the "gym" is non existent so don't pick this hotel if you really need a gym. the breakfast room is cavernous so when there is just a few couples staying in the hotel, it's eerie. they should have another space, a smaller space, to serve the buffet. the front desk staff (there was always just 1...

This hotel is very close to the original center of Palermo. Although it styles itself as four stars, I would rate it a three or 3 and 1/2, because my room is small and cramped. That may be because I'm a solo traveler traveling with a group. However, the room is clean and the bed is comfortable. A very nice... More

This hotel was part of the Le Sicili3 Carousel Tour and was a brilliant hotel. Grand old Italia building with a good restaurant and bar. Our room was top notch and very comfortable. The only problem we had was there were too many Australians in the hotel but that was probably because of the tour we were on. I'm still... More

We stayed for four nights in this hotel in late September. It was very comfortable. Our room was large the bed was great. The air conditioning was set at a perfect temperature for the bed covers.

The hotel (as the name would suggest) is in the old stock exchange which has been redone. We had third floor room with two bathrooms and a separate room with day bed and desk and armoire etc. The rooms included a flat screen TV with international channels. The hair dryers were lovely but not very powerful. The water power was... More

The Grand Hotel is just that: a massive old bank building, with high ceilings and grand public areas, including a fine atrium, which no doubt makes it popular for functions, The place is the polar opposite of boutique. Our room was large, very quiet, and everything worked, except for occasional drops on the wifi. And remarkably reasonable on Booking.com. The... More
