Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hotel Villa Igiea MGallery by Sofitel

Salita Belmonte 43, Palermo, Sicily, 90142, Italy Fodor's Choice

This grande dame set in a private tropical garden at the edge of the bay—a local landmark for a century—still maintains a somewhat faded aura of luxury and comfort and retains its essential character. A stroll around the lovely grounds reveals such relics as an ancient Greek temple at the water's edge. Large rooms are individually furnished, the nicest having an art nouveau flavor. Spacious public rooms unfold onto a terrace and highly rated restaurant.

PROS

  • secluded setting
  • historic building with lots of atmosphere
  • free shuttle to city center in the summer

CONS

  • could use a refresh
  • no amenities in the nearby area
  • a bit far from Palermo attractions
