“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for our honeymoon and were upgraded and treated to free Proseco as a nice surprise. The staff are very courteous and helpful. My wife had a problem with her eye and the hotel staff even offered to accompany us to help at the medical centre. Breakfast was generous and served each morning in the room. For 11 euros there is access to a nice private beach including transport. Nothing to do with the hotel but be wary of the guys outside offering hirse and cart rides, they are crooks and will try and rip you off! Fully recommend hotel.

We arrived at the airport and took the bus service to the city; we got off at the Theatre/plaza stop and walked up the street on Via Maqueda and took a left going away from the plaza. The hotel was a short 5 minute walk at best right in front of the theatre. Upon arrive we were greeted with very nice staff and they showed us to our room. The room was great - clean and just what we needed. The breakfast service was really good as well. Overall the staff knew us by name and were ready to answer any of our questions. The shuttle service to the beach was a plus as well and a must do. The location is great as well because of bars and eateries that are a block behind the hotel. The area offered a great evening for us.

Very friendly staff. Comfortable clean room. Staff delivered our rental car to us upon our departure. We had a bit of a problem with the WIFI and it took 1.5 days for the hotel to fix. They felt bad about that and delivered a tray of fruit and prosecco to our room while we were out. AC was good which is not always true in Italy.

This hotel is great if you don't have bags - You can't get close to it with a car or a taxi. It's a closed street most of the time and therefore you have to walk with your bags from the taxi stand or where you leave your car. The room was comfortable, but the WI-FI was out for most of our stay, and I doubt it ever really works well. The staff were the best thing about this hotel.

My husband and I stayed for seven nights at the Massimo Plaza Hotel for our honeymoon in Sicily. We had a lovely big room and view of the opera house. We had rose petals on the bed and a bottle of prosecco waiting for us on arrival!

The staff were so friendly and helpful. I unluckily got a very bad eye infection after a stone hit my eye. They helped arrange a doctor to visit the hotel and help me. They were genuinely concerned and in the next few days when I was in pain were very kind to me. We really felt looked after.

The breakfast is served to your room at a time of your choosing. There was lots of choice. I was full up every day until the evening! The room was kept very clean and we were provided with dressing gown and slippers to use.

The hotel is on a busy street but it is quiet at night with the balcony doors closed. The air conditioning kept us nice and cool at night.

If you want to go to the beach the hotel arrange a minibus to and from the beach, sun lounger and parasol at a fenced off beach for €11 each. It is well worth the trip. There are lots of beach sellers and so better to be in the private bit...although a few still try and sell things to you.

There were lots of nice restaurants nearby. It was a pleasure each evening to return to our lovely hotel for a coffee or beer. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed staying at the Massimo Plaza Hotel. Thank you to the staff who looked after us.

A wonderful stay in a very nice hotel right opposite the Teatro, the pedestrian street t runs past the door and hop on hop off bus and taxis right outside. The staff were exceptional and helped carry our bags up the stairs. You need to advise staff approx. time for breakfast - either in the dining room or your hotel room. Individually cooked hot scrambled eggs the morning we were there - delicious. A very well organised team of staff who provide wonderful service. Our room was beautiful and very quiet as it was not looking over the Teatro building.

We spent four nights at the Massimo Plaza and were delighted with the location, the friendly and helpful staff, and the overall quality of the experience. I would certainly recommend it for anyone looking for a central place in Palermo.
