The room was a little tired, but a good size. The airport bus stops right outside. Breakfast (included) had a good selection. The opera house across the road is a lovely old building and the hotel is easy walking distance from the historic centre

We stayed here for 2 nights - a shame about the scaffolding around the building as our room looked out over the main square but we couldn't see anything. Surprised to find we were given a disabled room (as was another couple on our tour) The room was very large but very sparse in furnishings (so a wheelchair could be...

Staff were wonderful. Even though we arrived early we were able to check into our rooms. The airport bus stop is right outside. One of our party had a piece of broken luggage which they fixed right away!! Breakfast was great. Lots to choose from and great cappuccinos. I would definitely return.

we paid $94 for what turned out to be a cramped little room with practically no amenities (only plastic glasses, no coffeemaker, no minibar). the location is great, but that doesn't really make up for how seriously the room under-delivered.

We felt fortunate to begin our trip to Sicily at this wonderful hotel. It is about 30 minutes from the Palermo airport, the hotel arranged a taxi for us ahead of time, and things went very smoothly. The hotel is centrally located in the old section of Palermo, and easy walking distance to virtually all of the old town. The...

Just close to the Politeama Theater downtown Palermo, is now under renovation but maintains its appeal for a rather reasonably priced hotel. Rooms are not huge and mine was a little noisy: water running down pipes during the night. Bed was comfortable and shower fine. Amenities in place and breakfast good. Staff is kind

So glad to be in a room that has a bathtub after two weeks of having just a shower.!! Room is clean and comfortable with a sizable buffet breakfast including scrambled eggs which is unusual in Sicily. Very well located in the center of town. Walking distance to good restaurants. Would stay here again!!

The room is very comfort in right size, not small, bed and pillow were good enough for perfect sleep. Staffs are very helpful with good service mind, especially their lady and man staffs in the breakfast room were very polite and smile, warm welcome to every of your requests/needs. The breakfast was very good in number and amount of food,...

The hotel is perfectly situated in a huge square (next to Prada) and the airport shuttle stops right in front so you can't beat the location. It's trying hard to live up to 4 star with refurbishments. It's not quite there. Small things: a little welcoming note indicating biscuits, water and map are to greet you...but are not there; a...

We had a great stay in Politeama, central location, super clean, friendly staff, great breakfast. The only downside was the presence of the scaffolding - the facade is under reconstruction. Recommendation: please update the internet connection, it is slow and annoying.
