Good place to stay, close to a shopping street and most attractions were about 30 minutes walk away. Lots of places to grab food around the area. Room were very comfy except wifi was slow at the top floor. Not everyone on the front desk speaks english. breakfast was free and good.

We stayed here for 4 nights in February with 3 teenage children. Right near the centre of Palermo, with a busy road in front, but there was very little traffic noise. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not much going on, but that was probably the time of year. Although there is no bar to sit in as such, you can... More

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.
