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 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.

PROS

  • very convenient location
  • interesting architecture
  • wellness center with fitness equipment, rare for Sicily hotels

CONS

  • somewhat indifferent staff
  • no Wi-Fi in guest rooms (though free in public spaces)
  • building feels a bit sterile
