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.

Hotel Politeama Palace is centrally located within the impressive Piazza Politeama. Everything is conveniently available, including wonderful shops and restaurants and theaters. The hotel staff is very eager to please and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. The TV provided in the room has a wonderful selection of programs in a diverse selection of languages. Right outside the door of... More

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...
