Palermo is a city of faded glory and this hotel could not do it greater justice. We were lucky because we had been there before but otherwise you will have difficulty finding it by car. Despite its huge palatial size the hotel has no facade and does not stand out in Corso Vittorio Emmanuele. If you are in a car just leave it to them to park. Don't give a second thought to it even though they are likely to wind it round a pillar in the cavernous internal car park. The hotel is as close to a palace as you are likely to find. It is gigantic and has some really splendid rooms. But they are far too large for any normal 21st ( or even 20th century needs. The cost of upkeep must be prohibitive and it's difficult to see how it can be profitable. Palermo is a crazy city and this is part of it. Breakfast, which is good, is served in a magnificent dining room with gigantic chandeliers! Our travel agent recommended a superior room which was probably good advice. It was large and light but looked out from its 3 large windows on to the tastiest back alley imaginable, except in Palermo where it is quite normal. Well situated for the grand buildings of Norman Palermo. I have reviewed the rooftop restaurant separately
