lovely hotel in bad neighborhood of Palermo
Posted Oct 29, 2016
Once you get to it, Palazzo Brunaccini, is a fine hotel. Newly refurbished, beautiful decor, excellent service, and a great restaurant with outdoor courtyard seating. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is a problem. The property is bordered on one side by the Ballaro outdoor market, and the area of Via Maqueda on the other. While the market is a memorable experience for many, it also produces epic amounts of trash and garbage. Via Maqueda is a high-traffic road filled with cheap, ugly commercial businesses of all sorts. Walking from the hotel to any other place in Palermo is not a pleasant experience.
