“Very comfortable and well located”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The hotel has an excellent location both for touring Palermo's historical (and very run down) center and the more sophisticated area around Via Della Libertá. Also Via Roma with its shops is a couple of blocks away.
The overall impression of the hotel is very good and it does live up to its four star rating. The only drawback is the lobby. You need to go down a flight of stairs since it is in the basement. This can give you the wrong impression of the hotel for it is dark and small.
The rooms, on the other hand, are super spacious and the bathroom is very modern. We had a double room with a huge king size bed. Even though the window overlooked a sort of small inside garden, it was quite welcome sinc ewe could sleep with the windows open (we dislike AC) and avoid the noise of a SAturday night on the nearby Politeama square.
The decoration is minimalistic but pelasant and elegant and everything was totally clean.
Breakfast was good although more fruits could be added.
Personnel was attentive and corteous. Wi fi is paid but you can use their two complimnetary computers on the hotel lobby.
Definitely recommendable.

We are a group of 16 travellers who booked the Garibaldi Hotel in Palermo in Feb. 2013 for 5 nights in Sept. 2013. Days before travelling we were informed by our agent that there was overbooking and we would be transferred to a sister hotel, the Astoria Palace. When we insisted that our very early booking should stand we were then told that there was a water problem in the hotel rooms and there was nothing else available at such short notice. In a review posted under bookings.com in 16 July 2013 some other folks encountered the same story at the Garibaldi in that they maintained that they were lied to about water problems and after complaining the problem disappeared and they got the rooms that they had booked. The Astoria Palace Hotel lives up to every negative comment that has been posted about it in Trip Advisor!! My advice especially to groups thinking of booking the Garibaldi Hotel, beware, because you could very well end up in the terrible Astoria Palace as we did.

Good location.Our room on the 4th floor,409,was quiet and spacious but the front panel was missing from the shower and the water went everywhere,resulting in us having to wade through the flooded floor and the toilet flush was faulty.The cleaner also only did half a job.Breakfast was adequate but was a free for all.Overall impression of hotel not very complimentary.

The hotel is located in the heart of Palermo opposite the grand Politeama theatre. To get to the entrance you must go down quite a few shallow steps since reception is essentially in the basement. Our room was a decent size for a city centre hotel but did overlook a very busy main road and being in a busy city, was therefore quite noisy. Breakfast is adequate with a reasonable selection for all tastes but there was a distinct lack of fruit. The staff were very helpful with any request.

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.
