    Our opinion

    Palazzo Brunaccini is a hotel of historical interest and culinary delights.

    Hotel description

    Founded in 1714, the four star Palazzo Brunaccini is situated in the heart of the old town of Palermo. The hotel takes its name from the Princess Lucrezia Brunaccini, the former 18th century occupant of the building. The hotel’s careful restoration and addition of modern furnishings have established a pervading, charming elegance, whilst the collection of art and antiques adds a refined ambience, as well as cultural interest, to communal areas. The hotel’s 18 rooms and suites are decorated in neutral tones. Exposed beams, antique furniture, and the four poster beds offered in some categories, enhance the romantic palatial feel of the hotel. The restaurant places chief importance on local cuisine, and the chef himself specifically selects the local cheeses and wines that would best accompany the menu. The ancient Ballaro market lies close to the hotel, providing guests with a plethora of artisan and local produce to indulge in. This is also where the hotel cookery tours begin. Wine tasting is available at the hotel, setting the delicious local wines beside traditional Sicilian cured meats and cheeses. The hotel’s interesting past and its central location in Palermo’s old town creates a wonderful historic ambience, whilst contemporary touches add a feeling of utmost comfort.
