If you fancy staying somewhere a little bit away from the noise and bustle of the city, the Genoardo Park Hotel could be what you’re looking for. This is a modern hotel but built in the style of a traditional noble Sicilian court. This style softens what could otherwise be a rather cold atmosphere as the hotel is large and sprawling, and you end up feeling welcomed and relaxed. This is helped by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
Our room was a good size, with a huge bed and a great view of the valley and other hills beyond. There's a pool, though this was closed when we visited in November, a bar (with OK prices considering the style and 4 star rating of the hotel) and a restaurant. The included breakfast was fine, though the choice wasn't extensive - we didn't have dinner here but I have a feeling it would have been a lot dearer than the tavernas of nearby Monreale, even allowing for the cab fare.
Although the address given is Monreale it’s actually a short drive, bus or cab ride away in the residential area of Aquino. The hotel provides a shuttle bus service to the centre of Palermo twice a day (free of charge) and at other times or to other destinations by arrangement (and with a charge).
