Reviewed 24 September 2013

This was a fabulous hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. We even got upgraded to a suite due to an unavoidable issue at check in. The location was even better. We were in the heart of Palermo. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will definitely stay again.

Lobby is in the basement and feels like it - no windows and you walk passed electric services to get to the elevator. Rooms were once nicely decorated, but starting to look very worn. Buffet breakfast was good. Location is excellent. If you need to get to the airport, the bus stop is 2 minutes walk.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights - a super location in Palermo. The hotel itself was first class, room was stunning. The staff were very helpful and could not have done more. Only minor mark against this hotel was the breakfast could be improved - that said it was not bad.

The Good:
Location, Breakfast, Bathroom, Good Value.
The Bad:
No iron(in the room OR available from reception) which I think is terrible for any type of accommodation never mind a hotel.
The room we stayed in badly needed to be painted-the walls, especially just inside the door, had a lot of black marks up to waist height(I presume from suitcases).
You had to pay for WiFi-free WiFi wasn't widely available in Palermo as a whole so maybe it isn't the done thing.
Overall:
Very average hotel with nothing that would bring you back.

Location is probably the best characteristic for this hotel. Very central, close to restaurants, shopping, transportation ( city tour bus & public bus stations just 10 meters from entrance, bus to airport just across the street). Staff at check in very welcoming & helpful but some could not speak English well. Very small lounge with basic furniture. Double room was spacious, had high ceilings and nice furniture and a comfortable double bed, however room looked dull because walls had a dull white color and were bare of any decorations.Some color to walls and some paintings would have made a big change to atmosphere. A continuous humming noise was always heard, probably from an AC unit in corridor outside room. My earplugs were handy. Breakfast lacked variety but was acceptable. Overall it was a good experience. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from Main Street

Easy to get to when arriving by airport shuttle BUT tricky to find if driving a car. Palermo traffic is CRAZY! Hotel is very basic but good value for central location. Our first room was large, clean, with a huge bathroom but very spartan. On our second visit the room was much smaller and looking very "tired". Buffet breakfast was adequate with variety of fresh baked goods, scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereal etc. Area around the hotel is very noisy so ask for a room not facing the street.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in August. Though the rooms were very spacious, it felt very empty. The bathroom appeared to be newly renovated, but it did not look completed (I don't know if this was done on purpose, but it looks a bit sloppy). The staff was nice, but didn't know much about excursions to sights outside the city (we had to look it up ourselves which was a huge hassle since their wifi was very slow). The hotel was however in a great location, the bus stop is right outside the front door. It was an OK experience, but I don't think I would book at the Garibaldi Hotel again.
