A jewel in the crown of luxurious Sicilian hotels, the Grand Hotel Wagner is the result of recent renovation on a neo-classical Palermitan palace which was built in the early 20th century and whose restoration has brought back the original splendor to this part of Palermo. The hotel takes the name of the famous composer Richard Wagner who lived in the street that has his name, with his family between 1881 and 1882. Already, from the sumptuous shiny marble steps at the entrance, the hotel exudes an aura of another era, where craftsman wrought iron goes splendidly together with the warmth of timber and with the precious gold decorations. The lighting sparkles in the large Hall, dominated majestically, among the windows – art in themselves, by the famous chandelier which was used in the famous great ball scene of the celebrated film “Il Gattopardo”. The interior of the hotel is decorated ornately with paintings, carpets, rare marble, ‘marble’ columns, windows hand-made by noted craftsmen, old paintings and a rare antique fireplace. With its refined rooms and prestigious suites – the result of perfect symbiosis between the elegance of the furnishings, the gold decoration and the efficiency of the services – the Grand Hotel Wagner is the ideal hotel for the most discerning traveler, ready to satisfy any request for those who travel for work or enjoyment. Whilst maintaining a classic style, the rooms are equipped with the latest technology.
