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.

The hotel is situated in the centre of practically everything. Airport bus stops behind its door and transport to other cities from stops close by. Breakfast was very good and good choice, hotel staff very helpful. The only complain was that the TV is very small and cannot be viewed correctly from the bed but to compensate for this SKY...

Please include a box of tissues in the room. Keep the restaurant for breakfast open until 11am. Although the hotel retro 1970s, the room was clean and everything worked. Staff is eager to help with everything. The restaurant serves the best breakfast you can find around the hotel. Can't wait for the renovations to complete.

This is an old Palazzo which has been converted into a hotel. The service is adequate, some of the items are a little worse for wear and could do with being spruced up. However if you like your stay in Palermo to have some old world charm - then the Politeama has this in spades. If you bring your car...

The hotel might benefit of a deep refurbishment indeed. Better insulation from street's noise, individual management of heating/cooling as priority. Then said that, it is still comfortable for sleeping and the staff professional behaviour truly pushed me to score the fourth star in this review. From my standpoint plus are: + logistics (perfect from/to airport by bus; everything is then...

Likes: I got a very good deal on this hotel for 6 nights with breakfast. 1. Its in a great location in Palermo, away from the downtown but close enough to walk to Quatro Canti. Seems like all the buses you ever needed to take to get anywhere crossed near the hotel, the airport, downtown, the harbour, Independence Square (Palace...

The location is perfect, facing the beautiful Politeama theatre and square. The staff, very professional, attentive, cheerful and helpful. The service overall is very good. The room and interior is gorgeous, very nice and classy. When we arrived a basket of fruits and a fine bottle of chilled Prossecco were waiting for us on the house. The breakfast was generally...
