The Grand Hotel et Des Palmes is a gorgeous relic of a bygone era. The location is excellent, the breakfast (room and menu) amazing, and the staff (generally) very friendly. Extraordinarily detailed and decorated public areas make returning from a day’s touring delightful. The reception rooms are literally fabulous (and you are strongly recommended to explore the hotel). There is no doubt the place has seen much better days (and hopefully will be restored one day) but it is beautiful, charming and unpretentious. Overall it is very much like the city of Palermo itself.
Do not stay here if you cannot tolerate a slightly decrepit and tattered environment, and crave perfection. But if you can-embrace and enjoy the experience!
