I arrived after midnight, having to take my own luggage to my room, which was very tricky to find as poorly sign posted and quite out of the way (not following logic with other room numbers). So my immediate response was not great. In the morning, there was a lot of choice available for breakfast, not all of which top...

A wonderful step back in time with chandeliers and a stunning mirrored breakfast room. My mother and I spent 3 very pleasant nights at Grand Hotel et Des Palmes in the centre of Palermo. Some might find this hotel is in need of modernisation, but we found that it's old fashioned splendour complemented perfectly with the classy bustle of Sicily's...

The hotel says it is Grand but the hotel is in need of some upkeep to maintain the name and image. Although the foyer is splendid the accommodation rooms, the hallways and the banquet rooms all need attention to bring the hotel back to its former beauty.

Bring back the days of yesteryear when you stop over at this fine old hotel. Like a gracious, but somewhat faded, lady, her facade is brilliant and captivating, while a closer look might uncover her true age. Overall, a good place to stay. Right on one of Palermo's main streets, via Roma, it's an easy walk down to the middle...

If you're going to get worked up over carpet stains and tears, you should probably stay away from Palermo. It's a gritty city from what I can tell. The Grand Hotel et Des Palmes is nevertheless perfectly nice. My room was large and comfortable. Perfectly clean. Good marble shower with a door. I'm not one for shower curtained bathtubs so...

A very good area to base yourself to see major sights within Palermo. As we stayed off season the rate was extremely favourable. Elegant, comfortable but slightly faded room. Corridors are rather long! Glamorous breakfast room with 30s music. Fair choice but absolutely awful coffee. So disappointing for a hotel in Italy. Rather dried up cooked food. Staff are very...

The staff was very kind and service-minded both at the reception and in the breakfast room. Breakfast room was very fine and big. Our room (227) should be renovated as soon as possible. Both in bathroom and in bedroom various damages caused by the humidity/water could be seen. The wall to wall carpet was very dirty. When we asked they...

Cleaning staff WILL STEAL YOUR VALUABLES. I would NEVER stay here again. My wife and I were on our honeymoon through Sicily and this hotel ruined our trip when we came back to our room one evening to find my wife's bag had been gone through and around $16k worth of jewelry was stolen. We should have put it in...
