Palermo hotels

Jump to last reply

Planning to be in Palermo Sicily in July (I know it is too crowded and hot but this is my chance). We will probably stay about 3 or 4 days and do a couple of day drips in that area.
What hotels are good as to location for walking and perhaps using the sightseeing bus . I am hoping also the hotel could help with a guide but am open to any recommendations for that as well. Hotels I am considering are Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa, Centrale Palace and Grand Hotel Wagner. Does anyone have personal knowledge of these and how their locations might rate. Safety is a factor for me as well. I believe we will be coming into Palermo by train from the Taormina area (possibly from Messina) so walking from the station to the hotel is a consideration. If anyone has suggestions about traveling to Palermo from Taormina area please advise. We do not want to rent a car as we are just going from this area to Palermo. Would flying from Catania to Palermo be an option? Thanks for any suggestions.
