One nights accommodation in Palermo with parking?

Thanks to helpful advice from people on this forum, we have now booked flights and hotel in Taormina for one week in June.

We will have a car and would like to visit Palermo for one night, leaving Taormina early so we can spend a good part of the day in Palermo sightseeing as well as the following morning before we head back to Taormina.

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced hotel in Palermo, preferably with car parking, that we can use as a base for a day and a night?

Some hotels do offer parking in the city center, like Garibaldi, Ambasciatori, Palazzo Pantaleo B&B among others. They are well positioned for sightseeing, less so to go in and out of the city being in the center, so I would suggest to plan carefully in advance your way in and out of Palermo.

If possible, try to avoid the worst peak hours, 7-9,30 , 12,30-14 (before lunchtime), 19-21.

As biondo has stated, carefully plan your way in and out of Palermo, since it's really best to avoid driving in Palermo!

Have a look @ Ibis Style Hotel Palermo, they have a car park, good location, good price nice staff!

Do not miss Pane e Panelle. It's a Sicilian fritters made from chickpea flour, parsley solt. They are a popular street food in Palermo and are eaten between bread or on a roll, like a sandwich. Drop of lemon juice on it!

Enjoy your trip in Sicily.

The ibis definitely seems the most reasonably priced so far.

Can't wait to try a Pane e Panelle!
