“Good for visitng Monreale Duomo”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Our visit to Monreale was just to visit the Duomo (well worth it) and this hotel seemed to be the only one within walking distance with parking available. Rooms are quite plain, shower is very, very small and water may or may not be warm. Access is via a single lane road but once you get there, parking is plentiful and location is charming with great views of Palermo and the valley below.

The trip along the dead end street where our car squeezed alongside parked and oncoming cars had us frazzled no end - however when we parked and looked up we all grinned, what a stunning view. Palermo was spread beneath us, the mountains surrounding us and the sea sparkling in the not so far away distance. We had booked only 2 days before, although it was mid week in october - for a single it was 55euros. The room was adequate and small - comfortable bed, ample but aged storage, very small bathroom but plenty of towels and toiletries. But when I opened the curtains I found a balcony with an even better view than the carpark - wowza! And i was only on the 2nd floor.
The staff were friendly, although their English was patchy - french and italian seemed more workable. The breakfast was ample - plenty of breads, yogurts, some meat and cheese - although the cereal was limited to cornflakes. Great coffee though.
Easily walkable into Monreale, and only 10 minute walk from the Duomo and buses directly into Palermo.
Great nights sleep - well worth keeping the shutter open to watch the sunrise.

Room Tip: Ask for a view and at the end of the corridor - if you get one near the fire door people will be tri...

Great hotel, with a stunning view overlookig Palermo. Comfortable room, albeit the water temperature was only warm. Roberto and other staff very friendly & helpful. Croissants, fruit, yoghurt, cheese, meat, biscuits , cereal was a great selection for breakfast. The very narrow road in made it a hair raising experience on our way up to the hotel, as it was two way, but with cars parked either side of the street, you need to back up and give way when able. We stayed 3 nights, it's an easy walk down to the Piazza where I would recommend catching a bus or taxi into Palermo...and not driving!

Hotel with a lift and car parking, with expansive views over Palermo
Reasonable sized room and bathroom (with good shower) and balcony facing the view.
Generous breakfast with good choices, served on the terrace.
GPS friendly address, but at the end of a road with two-way traffic on a single lane in several places. 1 km from main piazza which has bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: Request view.

My husband and I got married in the Duomo di Monreale on 28 april, and stayed at this hotel before and after the wedding (before leaving for our honey moon) with most of my husband's extended family. They are Norwegian, I'm from Palermo.
The location is fantastic, overlooking the whole of the Conca d'Oro (the plain surrounding Palermo, full of orange trees), the city itself, and down to the city harbour and the sea. Do ask for a 'camera con vista', room with a view: they'll be happy to help. If none is available, you can still enjoy the panorama from the breakfast room terrace.
The staff is amazingly helpful, polite and welcoming: Mr Armando La mattina, his brother, and whoever works at the Carrubella really make you feel you are special, and go the extra mile to make your stay pleasant. They are very discreet, never invasive, yet always present and vigilant. Same for the cleaning ladies, who noticed I was not well, wished me better, and the day after even asked me about how it was going: very kind indeed! And they do work well: rooms are spotlessly cleaned every day, and towels are changed every day... it is all so clean!
Breakfast is served in a large room with a retro' atmosphere, and a both western and eastern mediterranean influence in the decorations and lamps. There is a terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast if the weather is nice. Takien into account that this is a 3 stars hotel, breakfast is pretty good, much better than in other hotels: americano, good selection of teas, hot milk, corn flakes, cheese, cured ham, hard-boiled eggs (or frittata), local bread, local sesame biscuits, yoghurts, croissants... It is served between 8 and 10. now, my Norwegian friends do tend to have long lasting breakfasts, and the 10 o'clock limit was a bit tight for them... So i apologised to staff about it, saying that at home that's what they do... and he replied: 'No problem at all! We want them to feel at home, so they can enjoy breakfast for as long as they like!', which I though was very very kind, flexible, accomodating and customer focused. I have experienced other hotels where they do make you notice you should leave the table at 10 sharp, a bit pushy!
Many reviews have pointed out that the road leading to the hotel can be a bit of a trauma, not very exciting or pretty, and it's true: not so easy to be found, and a bit narrow for 2 cars coming form opposite directions. However, I must say that we got used to it very quickly, and once you are familiar with it, it won't generate any further apprehension. Locals are used to drive in these winding roads, so they are very careful.
The Duomo (you MUST go there!!!) is just 10 mins away on foot, we were walking back and forth at any time of day or night, and had no problem at all.
This was our second stay at the Carrubella, and we are all ready to go back there again, the service you get in unbeatable. All the Norwegian guests absolutely loved the hotel and the Duomo :)

Room Tip: ask for a 'camera con vista'

We stayed all around westerm sicily. Monreale is a grotty town, much the same as Palermo which the hotel looks down on. Litter in the streets, fly tipping...awful. The hotel was very old fashioned, in dire need of renovation but having said that the room and bedding was clean and the bathroom was new. the breakfast was very disappointing. its is located about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Monreale with a steep hill down to the town, I personally didnt like the walk back at night as was a desolate road.. the terrace looking over palermo is nice, we sat up there at night with a bottle of wine. the night staff - Roberto was very friendly and helpful, gave us advice as to where to eat etc. I wouldnt stay there again, and wouldnt go anywhere near Palermo again, there are much better places in Sicily.
