I totally agree with all the other positive comments reviewers have given about this hotel. The room was really nice - tastefully decorated, large and with a lot of conveniences - even a scale in the bathroom. Despite facing a busy street and the plaza in front of the theater, the room was quiet. It was really a delight staying...

Situated across the square from the amazing Teatro Massimo, the Massimo Plaza Hotel has beautiful accommodations, very comfortable rooms, and a delicious free breakfast. A true Palermo experience. I highly recommend a stay at this elegant hotel.

First, there is a massive flight of steep stairs just to get to reception - I don't see anywhere stating this hotel is unsuitable for guests with mobility difficulties. Second, having negotiated the stairs with a heavy suitcase, I was shown to a room that was shabby to say the least. The foul musty smell in the room was overpowering....

Hotel located at the second floor of a historical building. Beautifully furnished very large room looking at Piazza Giuseppe Verdi. Friendly staff. Breakfast just enough; coffee very good. On the expensive side for a hotel in Palermo.

Although comparatively new, this boutique hotel directly across from Teatro Massimo, the magnificent opera house, is a charming throwback to circa 1950s in many ways. Sweet and comfortable accommodations, a fabulous staff at one's beck and call. Breakfast couldn't be better or more accommodating, thanks to the delightful Antonella. Special thanks to Gianluca, Daniele, Luciano, Francesca, Piero, and others whose...
