Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa

Via dei Cartari 18, Acquasanta, Sicily, 90133, Italy

Cleverly constructed within Palermo's historic stock exchange, this monastery-turned-hotel is ideally located in the old town, just around the corner from Antica Focacceria San Francesco. This elegant hotel features vaulted ceilings and an expansive, airy courtyard in place of a lobby, with a retractable glass ceiling that's opened in warm weather (though nonsmokers beware of the smokers who congregate here) and a beautifully designed restaurant. While the guest rooms don't quite match the splendor of the public spaces, their soothing mint-green-and-beige color schemes and comfortable beds ensure a good night's sleep.
