Perfect location in Palermo; great check in

Located directly across the street from the lovely opera house, this hotel could not be better situated to see the sights of Palermo on foot. Christian could not have been more helpful at check-in, providing excellent advice on nearby restaurants and also general advice on sights in Palermo as well as other locations in Sicily. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great Hotel

Great location!!! Stayed only one night. At first I was going to give this hotel 5 stars ( which I don’t hand out often) but I decided on 4 . The location for the price point can not be beat!! The room was very clean! The balcony was awesome. The Ac worked well as I still did need to turn it on for a bit. It was super clean too!!
Some of the staff seemed pretentious but most were great. It is too bad I could not check in early when I arrived as I had informed them of my arrival. Some stairs to bring luggage up at entrance but they offered help which was great.
The only reason I took a star off is the bed was very hard with that one sheet. Unfortunately, this is like most properties in Italy but sometimes I get lucky and fine a good bed????
The noise on a Saturday night is very loud ( bands play on square till midnight) but no fault of the hotel. That is what u get when u choose such a great location.
They arrange a taxi to airport for 40 euro ( 30 min ride) which was great. And also a wake up call I I had to put ear plugs in with the noise. I actually would of loved sitting on my balcony enjoying the music but I had early flight.
It is a very nice hotel for solo travellers with a safe feeling.

The weeks best hotel by far

We had to flee from another hotel. We were not disappointed - actually we're VERY PLEASED with our stay at Massimo Plaza. It perfectly situated in Palermo just opposite to Theater Massimo. Nice serviceminded employees. We had breakfast served in our room at our convinience. It's complementary. Nice big rooms and (for Italy) relatively soft beds. We had a balcony to the back street. Windows and doors are sound insulated so close the dooor and your room is nice cool and quiet - open it feel the city living and breathing. A great place to stay in Palermo. Would definately live there next time. If you're in a rental car they have a private parkinglot at just 15 euros a day. Only downside is there's a lot of steps to the reception as it on the third floor (and no elevator). The only problem we had was that the minibar didn't cool at all. Even though it was fixed it never cooled. The steps and the minibar is the only reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars. Go there and enjoy Palermo wgich is so unbelivably cheep.
