The hotel has seen better days. Once upon a time it must have bee quite impressive but that is definitely behind it. The staff do somewhat make up for it and are chipper and helpful. The rooms are large, but... Could use a freshening of paint, better lighting, and the bathroom was configured in an uncomfortable manner. Our room looked... More

Excellent choice of breakfast including scrambled eggs, sausage and beacon, plus cannoli Sicilians all including in the price of the room. Also included is free... More

The location is fantastic, right on Politeama Square, where you can catch the airport bus, and very close to the shopping district and many restaurants. The welcome drink and snack was lovely. Staff were very helpful, particularly the staff serving breakfast, who were fast and courteous. The bathroom was a little small, and I could clearly hear our next door... More

As always in my reviews, the first thing I look for is the service of the hotel staff. And those at Politeama Palace Hotel (PPH) have certainly lived up to my expectations... and more! Special mention goes out to this very lovely lady whose name I can't recall but will attach a picture for both travelers and the hotel's reference... More

Centrally situated on Piazza Ruggiero , good for sightseeing and public transport. The hotel itself is well managed, with efficient staff, comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. Step out of the hotel and there are good shops, restaurants and cafes nearby.

A pleasant hotel very conveniently located near many of the major attractions in Palermo which are within walking distance or you can utilise the very accessible public transport which stops outside the hotel. A great feature is that the airport bus stops next door. A bus is available to go to the lovely seaside resort of Mondello. Breakfast was adequate.... More
