We originally booked our trip in January 2020, and due to Covid, and several cancellations, we finally got to Palermo 29th May 2022! The staff at this Hotel have been amazing and so helpful, going out of their way to assist with our several cancellations (which was out of our hands). We were made to feel so welcome from the minute we stepped inside. Our Room (103) was lovely and although close to reception it was incredibly quiet. Breakfast was served in our room, and it was tasty, plentiful and delicious. Our room was cleaned daily. It is situated opposite Teatro Massimo, which makes it ideal for exploring the City. We could not find fault at all with the Staff and the Hotel. A Big Thank you to you all.

We stayed two nights and attended the opera in theater Massimo just across the street. The hotel is very good and the staff is super friendly. Guarded Parking nearby for a fair price. Acces to the center of palermo by foot is perfect. Good food available in the neighborhood.

We stayed for one night to go to the theatre. The location is excellent, central, opposite the theatre. This is the only plus. The room is good, in that the bed is comfortable and the shower works, but that is about it. No telephone in the room to contact the reception. No working television Poor breakfast in the room as there is no breakfast served in a buffet area. Room is noisy. Is it a 4 star hotel???? No way!!

Gentile Ospite, RingraziandoLa per averci scelto in occasione del Suo soggiorno a Palermo, ricordandoci bene di Lei, preferiamo risponderLe in italiano. Siamo lieti che abbia apprezzato la posizione del nostro hotel, il comfort dei nostri letti e la funzionalità delle nostre docce. Per quanto concerne la televisione, siamo spiacenti che non si sia confrontata con noi, ne avrebbe sicuramente apprezzato la funzionalità considerato il pacchetto Sky Gold a Sua disposizione. Per il telefono, come anticipato al check-in, era in manutenzione per un guasto, pertanto ci sentiamo di sincerare chi ci legge che tutte le nostre camere dispongono di telefono privato. Ci dispiace che non abbia apprezzato neanche la prima colazione... Ci impegniamo quotidianamente per garantirne un'ampia proposta, un'eccellente qualità e soprattutto ci pregiamo di servirLa noi ai nostri clienti, motivo per il quale non ha trovato il buffet. Cordiali saluti.

We left after 2 nights Wake up Massimo Plaza we are your guests ,you are not doing us a favour by letting us stay

Dear Guest. We thank you for choosing our hotel, and we are pleased that you have accepted our proposal to change the period of your stay rather than giving up the prepaid amount (as required by law). However we are really sorry that you did not appreciate our breakfast service served directly in your room (at no additional cost) designed to avoid discomfort (related to the pandemic) in the most important moment of the day. In any case, you had the opportunity to come to our breakfast room, all our guests have the right to choose how to best enjoy their stay and by communicating with us, the best is guaranteed. Best regards.

I pre booked this hotel as it advertised a 24 hour reception which given the curfew in Italy and my flight arriving after curfew was necessary. The hotel was advised the exact time I was due to arrive yet had locked the doors at 10pm failed to answer the intercom or telephone therefore leaving me on the street with no accommodation- they have subsequently failed to respond to any emails - in short only book this hotel if you want bad service and to sleep on the streets illegally and without due regard to your safety

Dear Ms, we are pleased that we can finally communicate with you since and considering that in the days preceding her alleged arrival, this was impossible for us. If she had responded to our communications she certainly would have had no problem. We are currently among the very few operating hotels in the city and we try to continue to offer hospitality also in relation to the restrictions for which we ask for certainty of the stay. Unfortunately, we can confirm, also for the benefit of other users, that we did not receive any guests that evening. We don't want you to have the wrong hotel or to arrive late at night, after 1am. simply finding the door closed for safety. All for a more correct information.

Great hotel in the perfect location right in the centre of Palermo - friendly and efficient staff who spoke perfect English and were always available to offer advice on restaurants and places to visit. The hotel organised the transfer from and back to the Airport which worked well 😃

The hotel is beautiful, the courtesy of the reception is unique and the quality of the service. Only the breakfast was terrible, nothing special, no traditional food, all standard, like in a hotel three stars. It's a pity.

Excellent customer service. Staff all spoke very good English and were courteous and engaging. The location is super right opposite the Massimo Theatre and on the main street Via Maqueda where there are lots of street food options and trattorias down the numerous side streets. The cathedral and normal palace are within walking distance. It is about a 20 minute walk to the railway station so we made use of the airport transfer service which was great. On arrival the staff carried our bags up the stairs into the hotel. All staff wear face masks and there is plenty of hand sanitiser available. Breakfast was served in the room to reduce risk of covid. Minor downside was that the safe was not working when we arrived. However, this was quickly fixed and meanwhile the hotel looked after our valuables. Our room was at the back of the hotel with no view but it was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Palermo is interesting. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a one or two night stay.

We can’t say enough about the customer service of this hotel. We have had to change our plans due to the virus. This hotel has been the most flexible with us in changing our dates and helping us make sure or Sicily vacation can still happen. Our thoughts are with the Italians during this time and we can’t wait to be there in January!

The staff at the reception were very uncooperative and antipathetic. They gave us rooms at the second floor that were dirty and very badly maintained. A bed was broken. The shower was broken in another room. The glass was broken in two rooms. some of the rooms were stinking and not clean, When we asked to change they lied and said the hotel was full and than we found out that all the sicth floor was empty. when we asked for more pillows they said they don't have more pillows and later we found out they have a lot, and so forth.

Si tratta di una frode. Di una recensione FALSA. La struttura di cui si parla non è il Massimo Plaza Hotel. Tutto dimostrabile dal fatto che niente di cio' descritto corrisponde alla realta' dei fatti. Speriamo che questa recensione venga rimossa direttamente da tripadvisor
