Top notch hotel that feels like an oasis in a very busy city. Staff was outstanding, rooms are very comfortable and clean, breakfast buffet was large, diverse and delicious. Shuttle to city runs regularly but honestly why leave the property. View and grounds are wonderful. Great for families or couples.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for reviewing Grand Hotel Villa Igiea in such a lovely way.

Beautiful Hotel with great view and full of facilities. Room impressive with all comforts you need. The Staff at the reception really nice and gentle, the Concierge not always present at the desk but we received the right information regarding the beautiful Palermo. The restaurant is not worth it for the money you will spend, disappointed just for this.

This hotel was by far the grandest of all the places we stayed during our Italian vacation. A very historic and grand hotel that has catered to the rich and famous over the years.

Spent another night in a favorite hotel that has lost none of its charm. Spectacular views of the Mediterranean from a well appointed, large room. The dining room was busy but the food is top notch and the wine list is excellent. Location is far enough out of the heart of Palermo to eliminate noise and stress, but close enough...

The Villa Igiea, operating since 1908, oozes history from every corner. Its heritage is well preserved in public spaces and framed photos on walls whilst bedrooms are traditionally-furnished but fresh and elegant. The gardens complete this little paradise on the edge of Palermo and the presence of a conference annex does not spoil this. Service is warm and professional at...

it's been 18 years since we last stayed at Villa Igiea. Though we did not get the room we would have liked, we still very much enjoyed our stay! I would like to thank in particular the woman who services the bar and your dinner sommelier. They helped make our brief stay more memorable.

If you are travelling by car then it is certainly wise to avoid Palermo City centre hotels, the traffic and car parking being a nightmare. For this reason we chose this hotel with easy "on site" parking and used taxis for the short drive into the centre and sights. The hotel itself is delightful and enjoys amazing views over the...
