This hotel is not about having all modern facilities at your fingertips, if anything the first impression is of a shabby chic. However, the hotel is homely and relaxed, while still preserving something of the old Palermo. This is the place to go for its marble statues and guidling, to have breakfast under a huge chandelier and try and discover some of its past stories. Staff were wonderful - I had instant help with openning my suitcase which I locked and lost the key, the reception staff were happy to answer our questions about Palermo transport every single morning and the barman in the hotel bar was very friendly and had some wonderful drink creations.
This is one of those places where you can go again and again, because it is homely and reassuring. Any place that invests enough can have the latest luxuries, Grand Hotel et Des Palmes has more than that - a really easy going charm, friendliness and character.
The location is great - you will be safely out of the madness of the old town while near enough, and it is near some of the best restaurants which is very convenient especially in the evenings.
