Good location in the historical center of Palermo. But... The bathroom was incredible small and using the toilet is an issue (half of the toilet is under the sink and the seat was broken). The shower was dirty. The mini refrigerator was uncleaned. The bedroom was small too. If any of the luggages were opened we cannot move. The balcony... More

We stayed here for 1 night on 22nd September 2015. We had arranged a pickup from Palermo airport as our flight was scheduled to land at 21.15. This all went very smoothly and we were collected by a charming lady called Manuela who deposited us at the B&B in no time at all for the sum of €30. Manuela escorted... More

First let me tell you that, in my opinion, when visiting Sicily, Palermo is a 'no go'. The city is extremely hectic and there is not much to see or to do. There are much more enjoyable cities to visit (like Castellamare del Golfo). The B&B itself is cheap and is located in the centrum, within walking distance of the... More

My receptionist was very nice. My room was just the right size for 1 person. It's right around San Domenico. I thought it was a great location because it's near the bus stop and train station. The only thing is that they call themselves a BB but breakfast isn't included.

I had booked Gran Maestro well in advance to my trip to sicily. The day before check-in I emailed them asking about a late check-in (10 pm) and if somebody would be there to check me in. The reply back I received was a number and to call it when I land. I'm sure I am not alone on this... More

We stayed just 2 nights at Gran Maestro and glad that we choose this hotel. The clean and nicely decorated rooms, clean linens and towels, great view from the balcony – all was perfect!

We don't usually write to tripadvisor but we wanted to share our experience at "gran maestro": We stayed there for 2 nights and thought the hotel was great value for money, central, clean, and friendly. Breakfast was very basic (coffee and a pastry at a near cafe). However, after finding out (at the airport!) that our midnight flight is actually... More

Right in the historical centre this b&b is great value and more like a boutique hotel. Breakfast is at a bar two minutes walk away in a lovely square. The room was clean with modern decor. Would definitely recommend.

We had a kind communication with the manager of the B&B GRAN MAESTRO Mr Vicio and his friendly assistant Marcella, for everything we want it. Very good location to do things on foot in central Palermo. For some reasons we stayed to all the rooms. All of them were very clean! I personally prefered room Pantelleria. There is no breakfast...

“This is a small B&B, but the room sizes are generous also the ceiling are very high so the room is very pleasant to sleep in. Within the room are very tasteful fixtures and fittings...and you are welcome with lovely sweets on your bed, which is a lovely gesture, which shows you that they actually care about the level of service that they provide.”
