Overview

This former aristocratic palazzo, once home to the Brunaccini family, has been refurbished to provide a sophisticated, modern hotel in the heart of the historic centre of Palermo. Set amidst the atmospheric but slightly rundown setting of the Ballarò market, the hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the city’s food markets and churches.

 

Step in from the slightly chaotic surrounding streets into an elegant lobby with leather armchairs and floors scattered with oriental rugs.

 

Outside, a courtyard provides the perfect setting for an extensive buffet breakfast and evening drinks. Dinner is in the stylish and highly acclaimed restaurant Da Carlo.

Rooms

Accommodation is in a choice of studios, suites and two-floor apartments, all with modern bathrooms and with space for up to four people. Bedrooms are a minimum 18sqm and overlook the square or narrow streets of the old town;

Dining

''Da Carlo'' takes its name form its chef-owner Carlo Napoli. Carlo's menu changes daily based on the fresh produce found in the Ballaro' market every morning, observing a strict 0km food policy. Food and service are excellent with an extensive choice of seafood. Gluten-free is also well catered for.

Map

Only a block away from the bustling market, Palazzo Brunaccini is tucked away in a piazzetta close to the Cathedral, the Capella Palatina and several impressive churches but the real beauty of the city is the ability to get to most places of interest within a 30 minute stroll. Palazzo Brunaccini is also just a few blocks from the station and from here there are quick connections to the airport. A short bus ride out of town, directly from the hotel, takes you to the turquoise waters of Mondello Beach where the 2km long stretch of fine white sand is fringed with Art Nouveau villas, cafés, boutiques and excellent seafood restaurants. Another popular excursion is a visit to the Norman cathedral at Monreale.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
