Palazzo Brunaccini

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.
