“Clean, no fuss, and in the centre of it all”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

The Politeama Hotel is what I expected and what I needed. No more, no less. I expect two things from a hotel when I am on business travel: cleanliness and a decent shower. This hotel provided both. The room itself was spacious enough and quiet enough - I was overlooking the side street rather than the main square. I had full control over the heating (and cooling) of the room and quickly found a temperature I liked. The staff were courteous and helpful. If I had one criticism - and it is a minor one - twice when I came into the breakfast room, there weren't enough tables available. However, after a 5-10 minute wait, I was seated and could enjoy the start of my day.

The Politeama Hotel isn't grand nor awe inspiring nor did it surprise me in any way. But it was what I expected and needed. And, well priced.

Room Tip: I had a side room and this was quiet enough.

This is my second stay at Politeama Palace. The hotel has been renovated, both main floor and guest rooms and is very nice. The staff was SO nice to me - nothing was too much trouble and many of them went out of their way to be helpful. Good breakfast, quiet rooms, lots of space. My room had a balcony/terrace.

Hotel Politeama Palace is centrally located within the impressive Piazza Politeama. Everything is conveniently available, including wonderful shops and restaurants and theaters. The hotel staff is very eager to please and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. The TV provided in the room has a wonderful selection of programs in a diverse selection of languages. Right outside the door of the hotel are wonderful transportation alternatives, including a bus to the airport.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back of the hotel are more quiet.

Air conditioner leaked and created a puddle in the room. It then stopped working at 5 am and we woke up in a puddle of sweat. It would have been nice to sleep later, but the room was terribly hot. Plaster was coming off walls. No discount was given even after asking them to take care of these problems. The female staff working at the desk were nice and the bed was comfortable, so those were positives. On the other hand, the building seemed to be in a poor state of repair. We had plaster coming off the walls in our room and outside there was a lot of stucco that was coming off the building. It's centrally located, but pricey for what they offer.

As flight crew we stayed only for one night at the Politeama Palace Hotel, but I think the word "Palace" is an overstatement. Maybe is used to be a Palace about 30 years ago, but to me everything in the hotel was outdated, up to and including the lobby and elevators. All worked,but I did not expect an outdated hotel like this in the centre of Palermo. The most modern part of furniture in my room was the refrigerator, which was standing in a corner of the room. The view on the square in front of the hotel is nice, and the beds were OK. Breakfast was very simple and an omelette was made on request free of charge.

The location is excellent, but this hotel is not up to todays standards,especially for a 4 star hotel.

I have been there for 5 nights, the hotel is clean, silent and very well located in the center. For a 4 stars hotel I was expecting a newer structure and a richer breakfast. However the personnel is very kind and the price fair.
