The Politeama Hotel is what I expected and what I needed. No more, no less. I expect two things from a hotel when I am on business travel: cleanliness and a decent shower. This hotel provided both. The room itself was spacious enough and quiet enough - I was overlooking the side street rather than the main square. I had... More

This is my second stay at Politeama Palace. The hotel has been renovated, both main floor and guest rooms and is very nice. The staff was SO nice to me - nothing was too much trouble and many of them went out of their way to be helpful. Good breakfast, quiet rooms, lots of space. My room had a balcony/terrace.

Air conditioner leaked and created a puddle in the room. It then stopped working at 5 am and we woke up in a puddle of sweat. It would have been nice to sleep later, but the room was terribly hot. Plaster was coming off walls. No discount was given even after asking them to take care of these problems. The... More

As flight crew we stayed only for one night at the Politeama Palace Hotel, but I think the word "Palace" is an overstatement. Maybe is used to be a Palace about 30 years ago, but to me everything in the hotel was outdated, up to and including the lobby and elevators. All worked,but I did not expect an outdated hotel...

I have been there for 5 nights, the hotel is clean, silent and very well located in the center. For a 4 stars hotel I was expecting a newer structure and a richer breakfast. However the personnel is very kind and the price fair.

This hotel does not have the most recent fashions in its decor, although the reception area has a funky mixture of comfy ultramodern and classical furniture. Front desk staff were very helpful and welcoming. We were upgraded to a large room on a high level with a small balcony and wonderful view of the square. Room was large, a little... More
