Located in the heart of Palermo, just a few steps from the magnificent cathedral and the famous Via Maqueda, this hotel was once the noble 18th century Palazzo Tarallo. Originally a magnificent aristocratic residence, this hotel was brought back to its original splendour by an expert restoration completed in 2003. The particular care exercised in the selection of furnishings and the preservation of the original structures endowed the hotel with a special charm and a unique personality. On the main floor, lavish frescos and precious antique furniture recreate a magical atmosphere straight out of the novel The Leopard. There are 5 conference rooms, all fully-equipped, as well as the Restaurant 1892, an ideal base for special event lunches or dinners as well as wedding receptions, buffet or gala dinners. Monte di Pietà is a great choice for travellers interested in museums, history and churches.
Staff at desk. Very inpolite and unhelpful.
Nice room. Not very big with nice terrace. Very good breakfast. Globally a beautiful classic hotel.
Thw water wasn't draining away in the shower. Some ventilation problem in the room.
The location was excellent for sightseeing. The hotel was quite beautiful and the breakfast was very good.
The staff was not particularly helpful or friendly. The hotel was attractive but not particularly enticing or comfortable. Our room was substandard dark and dreary.
The balconies they have in each room. A nice break. The rooms were basic, good but not wow.
The breakfast was pretty unimpressive!
Beautiful roof terrace, room was comfortable and bigger than expected.
Bath was dirty and shower pressure was very weak.
The ambience and location of the hotel. Staff were very helpful, especially the bar staff. We loved our stay there; it was one of the best hotels we stayed in during three weeks' travel around Italy.
The water pressure in our shower on the 4th was inadequate.
Central location in the old town of the city. Very nice reception desk staff.
