Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hotel Piazza Borsa

Via dei Cartari 18, Palermo, 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. It's an elegant hotel featuring vaulted ceilings and an expansive, airy courtyard lobby with a retractable glass ceiling that's open in warm weather, plus a beautifully designed restaurant. While 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.

  • wellness center with fitness equipment, rare for Sicily hotels
