Eurostars Centrale Palace
Ranked #12 of 98 Hotels in Palermo
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I just got back from a "Crossroads of Sicily" trip with Collette Tours (review on Collette to follow). This hotel had a beautiful entrance, you knew that it was a palace at one time. The dining room was beautifully decorated, the roof-top bar and restaurant were also beautiful. The food in the roof-top restaurant was wonderful. However, the guest rooms left a lot to be desired. Bathrooms needed major updating, decor in the rooms was dowdy. Buffet breakfast was enjoyable, but if you like American coffee, forget about it!! The one bar on property which was on the roof-top did not open until 5 p.m., so if you wanted a glass of wine before dinner, you had to go elsewhere.

Everything was easy about staying at Central Palace. Great access to some excellent eating establishments, perfect location to walk to some must see sights, and staying in a renovated palace tops it off. The staff was helpful and was easily accessible. The only true downside was that breakfast was not included in our room rate and forget about any chance of parking if that is needed.

We were on a package tour of Sicily and the tour company booked us into the Centrale Palace Hotel in Palermo for a few nights. This is an elegant old building that is wonderfully located near the major attractions in town. The common rooms are almost palatial but the guest rooms are a little old fashioned and vary from one another. Our room had a great view of the street scene but that meant it was a little noisy at night. Breakfast was really good and included a large variety of meats, cheeses, pastries, eggs, bacon, smoked salmon, and stuff your own cannoli. Of course, nothing starts the day better than a cannolo!

This place was the first we came to when we arrived in Sicily. It was welcoming, convenient and somehow we ended up in the Diplomat Suite so we had 4 rooms and a bottle of wine waiting for us. It was a great greeting after the long flight. Their upstairs restaurant on the rooftop was charming with excellent food as was the small snack meal we had at the bar in the lobby. There are close by restaurants and many of the sights to see are nearby.

Room Tip: I would guess if you could get one of these suites it would be great. We were on a tour and were giv...

This hotel was very convenient. Plenty of restauranta around. Most tous start 10 steps outside the door. The only negative thing I can think of is the front desk didn't seem too friendly. They have definitely had the biggest and best breakfast. They even have scrambled eggs.

I was staying in the hotel for 2 nights from 3rd to 5th of April this year. Luxury hotel right in the center of Palermo. Very good location and very helpful staff. I forgot one of my bags in the hotel and realized it only when arrived home. The manager was so kind and arranged to send it to my home address by post. I'm very grateful for that!!!

The location is fabulous and the hotel is great in many ways. We had a 'junior suite' and whilst it was quiet most of the time, it was near an emergency exit which staff seemed to use in the morning - and that wasn't quiet! The quality of the room was fine - just a little tired in places (especially the shower - small tiles missing and no soap on the first day) and a bit characterless, really - lots of painted walls with nothing on them, and rather harsh lighting.
Reception are very helpful (especially when I needed a bandage out their first aid kit!) but maybe not too informed about buses to key attractions like Montreale - perhaps they're more used to the tour groups that use the hotel, that have everything arranged. Maybe warning people to book the restaurant well in advance would be also useful - when we tried to go, we found we should have booked...The bar was very nice - although whether you got nibbles with your drink seemed to depend upon the day of the week. (Or maybe that was because it was Easter?!). We never had the breakfast so can't comment on that.
That aside, it kind of matches the rest of Palermo - a great city but its seen better days...
