My Mum and I spent 4 nights in this hotel while I visited with a school friend. The staff were helpful and very accommodating when I asked to access a higher floor to take a photo. I had requested quiet room at time of booking however we were placed on the first floor over looking the square which during the... More

What I liked: 1-location: in the centre, next to a large square. On foot you can reach anywhere in a few minutes. Ideal for discovering the little secrets of Palermo 2-cleaning and room size: large rooms with wooden floors and all very clean. Despite the window being in need of repair and the heating system is old, I liked the... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in this hotel during our trip to Sicily and everything went as expected. We stayed on the 7th floor, in a room looking onto the vibrant Piazza Ruggero Settimo. As some other guests said, the hotel is spotless and the staff most helpful. Being Spanish, I could communicate easily with everybody at the... More

This is a very well situated hotel on the square. We had a room on the 7th floor with a wrap around balcony overlooking the square.The hotel is reasonably decorated and spotlessly clean. We loved the breakfast which had something for everyone. There are some busy roads to negotiate outside but we just followed the locals and managed to survive!!... More

I have just returned from 12 nights at the Politeama, and I found the hotel really excellent. Spotlessly clean, tastefully designed and decorated, very helpful and kind staff, and superb breakfasts with a great array of different foods. I can wholeheartedly recommend the hotel.

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
