We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour of Sicily, and enjoyed our stay. The Hotel Plaza Opera is well-located, within walking distance of many of the main sites and with lots of restaurants close by. Our room was clean and comfortable, with good toiletries and towels. Some of the tour with rooms on lower floors did complain...

Good, comfortable hotel with reasonable service. It's walkable to the old and most interesting part of Palermo in a more modern area but very close to the docks so some of the area leading down to the docks is fairly tough. Down side is the noise particularly in the evening going into the early hours of traffic as Palermo livens...

Dear jmbarnes2017, thank you very much for sharing your recent guest experience with other travellers on Tripadvisor. We are very happy that you enjoyed the hotel location - right behind Palermo's main square, piazza Politeama, in the heart of the city upscale shopping, entertainment and dining district, a short walk from the old town as you experienced. Many people work...

A very nice hotel in the newer part of palermo, yet still very lose to all the major sites. Nice breakfast and nice modern rooms. The parking is a little bizarre as there is self parking in a little dungeon of a parking lot across the street. Very little room in the garage and as bait stressful to park there.

Plaza Opera Hotel, Via Nicolo Gallo, 2, 90139 Palermo. Central location in the new city, on the border with the old city. Easy walk to many shops and restaurants, four corners, etc. Loudest street noise ever. Would be an issue for light sleepers, perhaps there are rooms that don't face a street. No wash cloths. Shower had a high step...
