Grand Hotel Wagner
Ranked #19 of 98 Hotels in Palermo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 December 2013

The grand wagner is a well-located , pleasantly staffed, modestly catered three star hotel that has seen better days. The rooms are large but gloomy and the bathrooms haven't been refitted for about 20 years. In the context of Palermo, a city whose best century was the 17th, it is right at home. The food and wine in the city is excellent and inexpensive, just don't expect the hotels to be "Capital City " standard and you'll have a fine time, especially as the price was pretty attractive.

Room Tip: inner courtyard , while gloomy, is much quieter than streetside

Beautifully renovated hotel with Old World charm. A wonderfully helpful staff and DAVID at the bar!
My single room was small but the bed was comfortable. Central location to most sights.
The amenities were great. The noise level was high on the streets at night.

Room Tip: check location to street... very noisy

GRAND WAGNER HOTEL



The Grand Wagner Hotel was a wonderful treat. The Hotel is grand and is centrally located, only a few blocks from the Opera House. The lobby has two sitting rooms that are paneled and has period replicas of baroque fruniture. The bedroom was spacious with a very comforatable bed. There was a very comfortable sitting chair. The bathroom was very spacious and was fully marbled with beautifully decorated floors. The dinning area was richly decorated and the hotel served a good breakfast with excellent service. The hotel had internet available in bedrooms and it was very easy to use. The hotel is a homerun. The Hotel Grand Wagner is very GRAND as the name suggest and is highly
recommended.

We stayed here on our first night in Sicily, as part of a travel group. The hotel's past grandeur was in evidence, but some of that had dimmed over time. Our room was very large, with a nice WC. There was quite a bit of noise at night, as a team seems to have won, and the crowd was celebrating into the wee hours. Breakfast was acceptable, if not up to mainland Italy's usual offering. May be among the best that Palermo has to offer, but leaves a bit to be desired.

A one night stay on the way out of Sicily back to Rome.
Stay here only if you must.
It has some grand features of overdone gilding, and furniture past its prime.
One night triple stay was almost $300 US and probably the least value of a 14 day Rome/Sicily trip.
No one is at fault - but it is only if you have no other good choices. Smells like smoke in the lobby.
PS - they provided breakfast in a bag when we were leaving before breakfast is served - not worth even thinking about eating it.
PPS - Tauck Tours stays there - and it is way below their usual standards.
Cannot recommend.

Room Tip: Search until you find one that you would stay in.

Like others have noted it is a big down in the mouth for a 5 star. Hard to pin point what exactly, just seems a shadow its former self However, the location is excellent, off the main drag by one block so it is relatively quiet. The breakfast is good enough, not great but good and in the basement. Bathroom a bit on the small side but big for Europe.

Room Tip: First floor balcony is a spacious room.
