Arrived at this hotel after a 5 hour train trip from Taormina and a walk from the train station. Was met by a lady that told us that your entire hotel was shut down due to a problem with the water supply in the hotel. We did not get the room we had booked. Instead we where transferred to a...

MasPalermo, Proprietario at Massimo Plaza Hotel, responded to this review

We are deeply offended by the falsity of the review and saddened by the malice with which some people write about the hotels, not knowing to make unquantifiable damage and in this case it deserved. The falsity of the review is that it has never been told the customer that the hotel was closed, but only that, for momentary failure... More

Staff are very good, young and charming at this pleasant rather old fadhioned hotel right opposite the beautiful Teatro Massimo. The street becomes a pedestrian walkway from 10 am to approx 7 or 8 pm which is convenient, but it can be crowded and noisy. However the balcony doors, when closed, offer good soundproofing. Breakfast is simple and the area... More

Being right smack across from the Teatro Massimo on Via Maqueda is certainly a plus. The street life is wild, including a real live drag race at 9 PM! But the downside is that because the street is closed to traffic, getting your car to the door is a challenge, means a bit of fast talking with the police in... More

Not a bad place but could be better. Positives were the staff were lovely and very helpful. It was a good size room with a nice balcony. Negatives are the Hotel is on a plaza so it gets very noisy.

Small comfortable hotel near many wonderful local trattorias and restaurants. Good breakfast included with our room but limited choice of salty or sweet selection. Street can be noisy on weekend but we did not have a problem with much noise. Very helpful front desk. Room comfortable but very small bathroom

Booked this hotel on the strength of goood reviews on Trip Advisor and they were right. The location is perfect, right opposite the Opera House in the heart of the historic old city. The area is virtually pedestrianised but you are allowed to pull up outside the hotel to allow the staff to unload your luggage, and they then valet-park... More

Great location, rooms and staff. This sounds like a repeat of most of the reviews but its true. Palermo is a great city to visit. There was a little bar area where we could even bring in our own wine and they supplied the glasses. They also arranged our transfer to the Palermo airport . There were many small restaurants...

This small hotel exceeded my expectations. It is located right in the center of the city at the border of the new and old town. The rooms are comfortable, the staff extremely helpful (especially with respect to restaurant reservations and transportation options); in short everything one could ask.

The title says it all, along with the other many 4-5 star reviews. Bear in mind the reception is on the 1st floor so you've got some stairs to go up & down. As advised here, we were in a room on the first floor, facing the lovely theater. The hotel is just on the edge of a pedestrian street... More
