Situated in the heart of Palermo’s city center, the five-star Grand Hotel Wagner, named after the composer Richard Wagner who lived on the same street during his time in Palermo, is located within minutes from the illustrious Teatro Massimo and Teatro Politeama Garibaldi, affording easy access to Palermo’s most notable restaurants and civic treasures.
Housed within a 19th century neoclassical building, which once served as the administrative headquarters for the Teatro Massimo, the hotel maintains its opulent turn of the century charm with elaborate wrought iron works and inviting wooden accents. Upon entering the lobby guests feel transported to a bygone era with grand classical features, such as the hotel’s original chandelier, used in the famed ballroom scene of the Visconti masterpiece, “Il Gattopardo.”
Featuring spacious guest rooms decorated in period furnishings, each room balances antique touches with modern amenities, such as Wifi, flat screen televisions, minibars, safe, bathrobes and slippers. Additional property highlights include the elegant “American Bar”, offering guests handcrafted cocktails, as well as an al fresco terrace. Guests of the hotel can also rejuvenate in the sauna or enjoy a relaxing massage within the hotel’s premium Wellness Area.
