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.

My husband & I took the airport bus that practically dropped us off at the door. The pros for this hotel are the good location for visiting polermo. 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

This hotel is right in the center of town and very convenient for sight seeing. There was a bus that picked us up in front of the hotel to bring us to the airport and the bus to the beach had a stop next to the hotel. The breakfast was really good and they packed us a breakfast to take... More

The only good thing is the location. We had a room with balcony on the square and the view is "WOW". Rooms are average; very poor beds. Service is very poor. Breakfast is average, but you have to be there early, otherwise there is no place nor food

Thank you Mr Trbuksxdk for your review that highlighted your appreciation for our best location and our best view in the room, for this reason I don't understand "room are average" because the size and the beautil view are not "average". We are sorry that you didn't note our breakfast, you can't taste our organic fruit for example, or the... More

Central location with metered parking adjacent. Desk and breakfast staff super helpful. Room lighting was so low and the minuscule window meant I could not see or read anything! Hotel that has seen better days unfortunately !

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.
