The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel and rooms were very clean. The free breakfast had everything I wanted and more, plus a cheerful staff on duty. They even made me a breakfast and slipped it in my room while I was out one day because they knew I was checking out early. It was all about the... More

A. HOTEL GOOD POINTS: 1. LOCATION Centrally situated in the Politeama piazza immediately adjacent to the striking Politeama Theatre, this hotel is one of the best positioned hotels in Palermo. 2. BREAKFAST We always ate out so were unable to gauge the quality of the evening fare, but the breakfasts were really good. Excellent choice of food and attentive service.... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour of Sicily. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The room and bathroom were some of the best of the trip and the location was great for walking to sights in the city. A further treat was our room opening onto plaza across the street with the Teatro Politeama Garabaldi.... More

This hotel was awesome...the location was great...right on Politeama Square. The bus from the airport drops you off and picks you up practically right in front of the hotel...eliminating the need for expensive taxis to and from the airport. The staff, each one of them, was as friendly as could be..always willing to help with whatever you need. I had... More

We stayed here at beginning of May 2014 as part of a group tour from Ireland. We arrived late on first night, and staff opened bar to slake our thirst, which was quite welcoming on this warm night. We enjoyed an action packed two days in Palermo, among highlights, Palatine Chapel and Palermo Cathedral, and historic locations. We savoured the... More

Hotel Politeama is in a great location in the very city of Palermo facing the main city square. There are lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance. Also the city tourism bus stops nearby to take you to all the historical locations of Palermo.

Lots of tour groups use it. the lobby has a great seating area to hang out in as the rooms are small. Cool modern decor. The bathroom shower has a problem with... More

choose a room overlooking the square for people watching. The double glazing stops noise and it is also possible to open windows if needed. Artificial lighting is poor in bedroom. Excellent reception staff and also very good breakfasts. Close to bus station, theatre and opera and 10-20 minutes walking distance of old town and sea front but there will be... More
