Hotel Giardino Inglese
Ranked #31 of 98 Hotels in Palermo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Good Location - Very convenient for the airport bus - Prestia e Commande. Safe area. May be a bit of a walk into the more touristy areas, but along road lined with expensive shops! Plentiful buses for those with limited walking ability.

Room was clean, of reasonable size with a balcony overlooking the garden. I love the big beds - they are probably 2 singles put together - but there was no "gap". Shower was good with plenty of pressure. Only real criticism of the room was lack of drawer space.

For breakfast, there was not the range of choice that you would get in a more expensive hotel, but was good. Fresh fruit/fruit salad, pastries were limited but very fresh; cereals, toast with jams and cheese and a hot selection- bacon, scrambled egg and what I would call "European" sausages. As other reviews have said, the sunny rooftop room for breakfast was a lovely way to start the day.

Staff were friendly and spoke some English.

Palermo seems to be quite an expensive place generally, so I feel that this hotel was good value.

This hotel could do with a facelift but the rooms are very big, the bathrooms have been refurbished and breakfast is decent. Not a big fan of the single beds put together but it seems the norm in. Italy. The rooms also each have a balcony. The staff is nice and speak some english.

My wife and I stayed three nights here at the start of our tour of Siciliy. The hotel is located in a very safe, high-end neighborhood on Via Lerta, a main street into the nearby center of town and its attractions. The garden view at thew back is restful EXCEPT when, as was our misfortune, there is a concert held there. Then ear plugs, noise cancelling headphones are of little use until the revelers depart at 12:30 AM! The staff are helpful, the breakfast are ample and it's noise issue cost it a fifth star.

Room Tip: The back overlooking the garden is best IF there's no concert planned. Check before you book.

This was the second hotel we stayed at in Palermo and we loved it. It was in quieter part of Palermo but within walking distance of the sights and shopping. The bedroom was lovely and clean with a balcony overlooking the garden. The breakfast on the roof terrace was perfect and such a great way to start the day. The staff were friendly and helpful and we would 100% stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights prior to joining a small group trip around Sicily in mid-September 2013. It was perfect for our needs from the moment we walked the few metres from the airport bus to when we were met by our trip hosts who enjoyed having a drink with us in the rooftop bar before we left. Our room with a balcony overlooked the garden as I had requested and was spacious and very comfortable, and the hotel itself is very nicely furnished with all the facilities you could require. Breakfast every morning with most enjoyable, with a good selection of fresh foods and excellent coffee. Sitting in the outdoor garden reading the newspapers and watching the people and traffic on the avenue below was most relaxing. We were very glad to be staying in the quieter part of Palermo whilst still only a walk away from the centre with its wonderful churches, restaurants and other attractions. In the heat of the day the Inglese Garden was a cool retreat. We recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good hotel in Palermo at a reasonable price and friendly and helpful staff. Thank you Francesco and all the other staff who helped us enjoy our time there so much.

Pretty good. Comfortable rooms, great breakfast, fair staff. Near Palermo city center along a masted boulevard you can have a scenic walk . Perhaps too expensive, but the lace really worth it. It's very well connected with buses.

I made the right choice by booking this hotel not knowing what to expect with Palermo. It is located along the airport express bus stop route (literally steps away from the entrance) and minutes away from the city center so it's very quiet. The room I reserved was a "garden room" (1st floor) so I had it all to myself since no other guests were staying next to me + it was a big room. The staff is great and very accommodating, breakfast was good and the neighborhood felt safe even though I received tips to watch out for pickpockets (just be smart where ever you're at).
Took a bus to Mondello Beach since it's only about 25 minutes away from the city, caught the local bus which was steps away from the hotel.
Will definitely stay here again. Thanks again to the hotel staff, Franchesco, Maria and the Filipino man (morning shift/sorry I forgot your name) for your help and making our stay memorable.

Room Tip: Garden room for sure.
