Grande Albergo Sole has some great features and some drawbacks. It's location is the best for Palermo. Across the street from the main intersection of the city, near Piazza Bellini, near to the great open air market Ballero' and within walking distance of the Duomo. The renovated roof top dinning room and bar is wonderful with a view of the...

We stayed here as part of the Central Holidays tour to Sicily. This is supposedly a four-star hotel. They have got to be kidding! The room is so spartan and small, it looks like it should be part of a monastery. There is barely any storage room except for 3 tiny half-drawers in a closet - none in the room,...

We stayed here mid March for a few nights before and after our Tour of Sicily. Both stays we had extremely large rooms for Italy. Breakfast had nice selection and dinner was even better. Nice area upstairs to have a drink before dinner. Terrace was not open for meals as it was not warm enough yet, but had great views....

This hotel is a good example of a place that could be great but were management and staff let you down. The room we booked, a superior double room, was large but with only one window facing a dark courtyard and a wall, very depressing. Bed was not very comfortable and breakfast staff seem to be annoyed of us coming...

Grande Albergo Sole is a modern though warm and welcoming hotel. It is perfectly located for a walk towards the Cathedral and the historical city centre. Sole’s staff is extremely kind and professional, adding a personal touch to the hotel’s clean and spacious rooms. Save some time for the copious breakfast in the morning and for a dinner on the...

I had read that they charged a fee for their wi-fi here, but it was free. You had to ask at the desk for the keyboard, which was then loaned to you; you plugged into the monitor around the corner. Very easy. There is also an outstanding little cafe across the street, in which the house wine was only 1.5...

The room was small, and had no decor.There was a leak right outside our room with buckets and exposed ceiling wires.The view was awful. The staff was nasty, and not helpful. The location and breakfast was good.Look for another hotel if you want any satisfaction.

We were transferred to this hotel after booking into another that had problems with some of their rooms. On arrival the receptionist was very abrupt and didn't even tell us when or where breakfast was served. The shower overflowed and the air conditioning was ineffective. We asked the receptionist to find out the train times for us to which he...

After staying at Vulcano at Therasia Resort to come to this hotel was very disappointing. We had a room with no window so you can imagine weaking up in the morning to darkness when we had fanstactic views at Vulcano. Location is good however the service of breakfast staff is not friendly. The bar on the roof is fantastic if...
