Lonely Planet review

What can you say about an art nouveau villa that was designed by Ernesto Basile for the Florio family (of tuna and Marsala-wine fame)? You know it's going to be magnificent.

Grand Hotel Villa Igiea sits around 3km (1.9mi) north of the city centre and like any exclusive place worth its salt, it's a bugger to get to without a car/private chauffeur/taxi. Living up to its status as the best hotel in Palermo, it offers several luxury advantages, including a private beach, swimming pool and tennis court. The rooms are predictably ritzy, with fantastic beds and palatial bathrooms. Best of all, prices drop by 50% in the low season, which is when the paupers get a chance to get pampered.

Our independent authors have visited Grand Hotel Villa Igiea and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Palermo.
