Hotel Giardino Inglese
Ranked #31 of 98 Hotels in Palermo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 September 2013

I think Carl G's review below is spot on. This hotel is fine, but surely there must be other better ones in this town? We stayed here for 3 nights. Positives: it's clean, located quite conveniently for some upscale shopping, many of the rooms overlook the park, the rooms are large, nice & clean, soundproofing is good, AC works well, there's a nice outside bar area on the side facing the street, and the staff is mostly very friendly. The drawbacks: a rather uninspired breakfast, a bit of a walk from the old town, and the usual hard Italian beds. Too bad also that they don't make more out of the rooftop terrace, which has some potential. All in all, it offers a pleasant stay but don't be misled by the #1 ranking on TripAdvisor.

Very modern, extremely clean hotel. Easy walk to all the major sites in the city. I also liked the park next to the hotel, which is nice for an afternoon break from the hustle and bustle of Palermo.

Great breakfast, excellent wifi coverage.

I also stayed on my return to Palermo, and would happily return.

There are some excellent trattorias within 1km of the hotel as well.

As regular visitors, when we found this hotel rated here as Palermo's best, we thought we would try it. It was a little disappointing -- this is an average hotel, with a number of good points, but it is not in the top class. Views over the quiet Giardini Inglese are a plus and it is well located for shopping on Liberta. But in hot weather, it is simply too far out from the historic centre for comfort, if you want to walk to the main sites. Rooms are averagely sized but the decor is dull; service is good, with a friendly, helpful reception (Giuseppe) but the breakfast is only average. Both bars are unprepossessing and uninviting. There are a number of hotels in Palermo at around the same price (120 Euros per double room) that we much prefer)

Room Tip: Make sure your room faces the Giardini Inglese.

From beginning to end my partner and I had a very good experience of this hotel. Prior to embarking on our trip to Palermo I contacted the hotel about accessibility and how to locate the hotel on arrival and I received a very helpful email from Guiseppe at Reception which gave me exact instructions. It couldn't have been easier. It cut out a lot of stress and confusion after a long day of travelling. we both found Giuseppe and other customer service personnel extremely helpful in terms of suggesting routes, places to visit and restaurants. Giuseppe particularly was extremely accommodating by taking the time to help us to book follow on accommodation in our next destination, Serecusa. It saved us a lot of trouble and inconvenience on your trip and for that we are grateful. Apart from that the hotel was clean and the breakfast was good. Also the hotel was extremely central and just a short stroll away from the city centre and the shopping area was on the same street. No complaints whatsoever and we would strongly recommend for future travellers.

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the center in a nice area, overlooking a pretty park and as well as being served by 5 or 6 buses that will take you to the center ,the central train station and the lovely Mondello beach, the airport coach (for 6 euros) wll stop virtually opposite. The area is a bit dead in August although the park is pleasant and there is a pool hall with table tennis nearby , which was open some of the 8 days we were there. The hotel was genuinely 4-star quality from a comfort and facility point of view and even had Sky tv. The chambermaids were excellent, quick, efficient and friendly.. As mentoned by previous guests, there are a few minor criticisms; one or two of the reception staff only spoke Italian and the scrambled eggs were hard and discoloured if you arrived 45 minutes before the end of the breakfast period.. They also had one or two technical problems while we were there but these things do happen,even in the best of hotels.On the whole I have no qualms in recommending this charming hotel.

Room Tip: The park view is very nice

Great experience...Hotel location was convenient and in a good location. We enjoyed a clean spacious room overlooking the park. Plenty of restaurants walking distance from hotel too. We cant say enough good things about the staff especially Giuseppe. He was always there to help us. The staff was friendly, informative and attentive to our needs. The breakfast was delicious if you stick with the Italian specialties...stay away from the eggs and bacon! Would definitely return to this hotel without a doubt.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking gardens.
