Review of Hotel Garibaldi
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Jul 2023
The location is fantastic. The rooms are large, well maintained and have perfect AC. The breakfast is good and the staff is super-helpful. A special shout-out goes to Virginia the reception desk who helped us a lot.

Hotel Garibaldi looks great on the outside. Beautiful facade, decent lobby and its location is great; close to the Opera House, luxury stores and a few minutes walk to Quattro Canti but that’s about it.

Rooms are large but terribly old and basic, it is more like a low 3 star hotel with water stains on the wall and dust on the window grill. I had bear and grin because I was there on with a tour group. In-room amenities are lacking and there is no international news channels like the BBC. My room was on floor zero right by the exit and I can hear staff pushing trolley and laundry in the morning.

Breakfast was basic and was not reflective of a 4 star property. The staff spoke decent English and were efficient. Dinner at the restaurant was surprisingly good, especially the young chef who made my starter and pasta!

Room tip: Avoid floor zero.

This is a hotel frequently booked by tour groups because of its location within walking distance of all the sites in the old town. Rooms were fine. Breakfast was very unimaginative and frankly disappointing.....self serve coffee machines with powdered milk and undrinkable coffee, plastic cups for cordial fruit juice and nothing fresh- tinned apricots and prunes with cereal some cooked hot food. Pastries were good as they are throughout Sicily. Large plastic bottles of cold water were available. On both mornings I was there I was told off by an officious waitress for filling my personal water bottle from them. Why is it offered then? I can have as many glasses of water in plastic cups as I like for breakfast but can't fill my water bottle....why? Is it a move to get you to buy bottle water at 2 Euros a pop......it is clearly not to save the planet of plastic.....it is surely not a way to show hospitality to your guests. Drinking water from taps is not always safe in Sicily. Treating your guests like naughty children on a school camp does not make you a 4 star establishment. This waitress offered no Buongiorno.....just snarky abuse in Italian....she is clearly going for Employee of the Month in this lacklustre hotel experience.

Room tip: Book room without breakfast...

DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE.
I wouldn't even call this a hotel since the whole point of a hotel is SLEEP. You CAN NOT and WILL NOT get any sleep at this place. The noise levels from the street are horrendous - I am writing this review at 2am.
The staff do not care and they knowingly offer this room to unsuspecting travellers.
Breakfast on offer is dismal to say the least, rooms are old and run down, large yes, but run down and NOTHING like the edited photos they provide.

Room tip: DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT STAY HERE. ATAY ANYWHERE BUT HERE.

The hotel is a little hard to find as the signage is quite small. Once inside we were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was more than adequate. We would definitely return.

We stayed here in February and checking in was easy. The room was a bit bare, no soft edges and no view other than the wall of the back of another building.

The staff were polite and the food was ok. It felt a bit like a slightly upmarket hostel really.

The main rooms are below ground and it felt a bit claustrophobic. Our room was on the second floor, and it was clean and well serviced.

This was somewhere clean and functional but without any frills whatsoever. It didn’t feel whatever I expect 4 star feels like.

Room tip: If you want clean and safe in a good location, then this is ok.
