Nice hotel, rooms small (standard) but enough for few nights. Hotel is in quiet street but very close to to Politeatro, central location. Lots of bars for the night in the vicinity. Breakfast was nice with fresh fruits. They let us park right in front of hotel which was very convenient. Might be little overpriced. Overall good experience

We are very glad you enjoyed your overall stay experience, including the hotel central location, the breakfast based upon fresh products and your room. We suggest you might try one of our superior or deluxe rooms on the occasion of a next stay with us, if you found our standard rooms, which are nevertheless quite bright and spacious, did not match your expectations.

We spent a fabulous 4 nights at the Plaza Opera in a room that was perfectly arranged, functional and quiet. It also had an Italian rarity, excellent bedside reading lamps. Airport transportation worked well, which was fortunate, as the hotel's superior central location makes it tricky to find at night for those with jet-lag. Breakfasts were tasty, though we thought the coffee could have been richer and stronger. Every single member of the the reception staff was impressive and provided consistently great recommendations for nearby restaurants, tips on negotiating Palermo, and accurate daily weather predictions. We were especially appreciative of the bellman and the receptionist on our last morning when we discovered that taking a taxi to our car rental office was impractical and walking with luggage would have been strenuous. The two gracious staff members developed a plan for driving us to the rental office; this was accomplished (although the bellman had to corral a passerby to help him push and jumpstart the car) and our perfect stay was further enhanced. We had a lovely time and will return at our earliest opportunity!

This hotel is quite modern and situated in close proximity to the city centre and with dozens of restaurants in nearby streets. The room was very clean and modern and provided excellent sleeping opportunity. WIFI is not free which is most dissapointing in this day and age and if we had realised this we probably would have booked elsewhere. The staff on the front desk were obliging. Correspondingly the service in the breakfast area was appalling. On the first morning we went down to breakfast at least an hour before closing and found that the eggs sitting in the warmer were cold. The warmer had been turned off. On the next morning we noticed a sign on each table promoting that you could order eggs of your choice. However upon ordering poached eggs the rude head waiter advised that it would take 10 minutes to heat up the water and it would be better if we had the eggs from the warmer. In our view if you advertise something you should deliver. This is not the first time that the poor attitude of staff in breakfast areas has downgraded our rating of hotels.

Dear Guest,
thank you very much for sharing your opinion about your recent stay at Hotel Plaza Opéra with the other travellers of the Tripadvisor community. We would like to thank you for highlighting your appreciation of our rooms and their comfort, of the surroundings and location of the hotel and of the politeness of our front desk staff.
On the other hand, we would like to express our most sincere apologies for the poor attitude of our breakfast service staff, for the low quality of the eggs served in the warmer and for the lack of personalized service you experienced as to table service. Professional tailored service and excellent product quality are our trademark and we sincerely apologize that you were delivered a breakfast experience which is in no way compliant to our standards. We will take all appropriate actions in order to prevent such events to occur again.
Wifi is at present a fee-paying service but we will submit your remark to our management in order to highlight your experience with this service.
We sincerely hope we will have the opportunity to have you again as our guest and let you experience that all the remarks that you shared with us have turned into steps for improvement.
Best regards,
Giulia Briguglia

The hotel is 6 or so blocks north of the edge of the Old City part of Palermo in which most of the city's numerous attractions are located, with a convenient and easy walk to Via Maqueda or Via Vittorio Emanuele. Very close to the hotel is a large shopping area and there are several excellent restaurants within just a few blocks. The hotel was nicely designed and clean, with spacious and comfortable rooms and large and well-equipped bathrooms. The staff was very helpful and friendly, patiently answered all our questions, and gave great advice. This is an outstanding choice for a hotel in Palermo.

A very nice city centre hotel in a good safe location near the big shops and theatre. Had a boutique feel with pleasant modern decoration. Large very comfortable bed, good sized room, well equipped bathroom.

Only niggle: the breakfast room downstairs did a fair, if not particularly inspired breakfast - but the noise! Every sentence, chair being pulled back, echoed and when the two rooms were full it was deafening as everything echoed! A carpet would have helped enormously.
