While the location was as described and very centrally located, the real problem was the room itself. Electrical sockets were hanging off the wall, the room was musty and the shower overflowed onto the bathroom floor, completely flooding it. We reported the danger re-the electrical sockets to reception as soon as we became aware of the situation. The action immediately taken was to send a caretaker to the room, who advised us NOT to use the sockets. Instead, a multi-point extension cable was inserted into the one functioning socket. End of repairs! Over the following 3 days of our stay, the "dangerous" sockets remained as they had been on arrival. No repairs were carried out by an electrician. Reception seemed unconcerned and simply advised us that it'd be dangerous to use the faulty sockets! Over the past few years I have travelled quite extensively in Italy but have never before encountered a situation such as this!

Great value for money!! The room was excellent. Spacious, clean with a huge balcony where you can see politeama theatre. The bathroom is very spacious too. Hotel doesn't seem old. It is situated 5 minutes walk from Massimo Theatre. Which is the centre point of Palermo. Very near too from bus stop (in politeama) to go to the Mondello beach. Its very recommended.

"Breakfast" was positivey TOXIC. It would be better if you provided NO breakfast and adjusted the rate accordingly. You should be embarrassed to present such rubbish to human beings.

The people at the reception do not really know to tell you much about the city, or they pretend they dont know.I was asking about neighbourhoods showing them the map as well and they had no idea where they were...Mind you Palermo is NOT a big town.Other than that they are welcoming. Also the position of the hotel is excellent for both sightseeing and shopping.I believe the prices could be a bit cheaper since you can see that although the hotel is clean, it is however, old, the furniture is old-fashioned and the bathroom has a shower not a bath.

Nothing has changed in this hotel since 1970's except the pricing which are definitly 2008 ! We had a triple room and our daughter had to sleep on a miserable "bed" which could have fit for a dog. A 3 stars hotel which would be a one star in France. The breakfast is also catastrophic.

The hotel itself was fine and in a very central location but was absolutely nothing special. The porter on arrival was unfriendly although the one in the morning was a lot more polite. On arrival (we called for directions but the were poor and it took two hours to find the hotel) we parked in the street (this is allowed) right outside the hotel but the porter told us we could move it to their secure parking. In the morning I was charged €12 for parking there! I usually like to stay in the centre of town but I'd recommend staying further out (try the Athaneum - it's easier to find, cheaper, just as clean, friendlier staff and free secure car parking) and getting a taxi (about €5) in when you want to visit the centre.

Good location, close to historic centre, shops. Staff unfriendly - very few spoke English. so unable to offer advice re directions, etc.Room overlooked light-well - hot and airless. Air conditioning didn't work till June! Satellite TV didn't work, so no English speaking channels available. Food very mediocre.

Pros: Very low occupation (because not good value hotel). Instant confirmation by return e-mail. Large room (three bed room). Good situation. Cons: Very bad acoustic isolation. You can hear all the noises and conversations from yor neighbors. Employees just comply; not a hint of seeking customers' satisfaction. In April no air conditioning; solution: open your window if you can stand noises and light. Breakfast barely acceptable.The bar in the hall is just a decoration; no service. No internet. Summing up: You will survive it if you have nothing else. But compare prices with other 4 stars hotels. I found cheaper rooms, but must be booked long in advance.

We paid for a triple room and were given a twin room with a camp bed. The hotel details promised air conditioning. This did not work - we were told that it was only turned on in the summer. Fortunately, the weather was not very warm, but we had to have the windows permanently open and could not sleep because of the constant traffic and people noise. The breakfast was barely adequate in an unwelcoming dining room with badly stained tableclothes. There was no hot water for the last 2 days of our stay. The hotel staff were very unhelpful and gave no appearance of concern at this. We did get a small reduction in our bill, but only after we insisted and it was given in very bad grace. This was a very disappointing stay, not cheap and not at all worthy of a 3 star rating.

Standards in Palermo are not too high to begin with, so I was not expecting much. But I was still very disappointed with the Mediterraneo. It is a large, tired and charmless hotel. My bedroom was lit with a flourescent light on the ceiling! The Breakfast Room is drab, and uninspiring. The Hallway carpets were worn. The desk staff were minimally friendly. There was no hint of a woman's touch anywhere in the hotel so I would not recommend it for a romantic stay. I spent two weeks in Sicily and found fine hotels in several smaller towns. The Mediterraneo charged much more money for a very pedestrian and dated product. My stay was very forgettable.

The hotel was reasonable I guess for the price. It is certainly very conveniently located and the staff was nice. Rooms were very basic. But my real disappointment was the parking issue. The hotel description says: "All the rooms are equipped with telephone (direct out - dialing), hair dryer, color television with satellite antenna, air conditioning and private garage." This is simply untrue. There is one garage with space for only 17 guests. Chances are you're not going to be one of them. The guy at the desk was very nice and helped me to find a good street parking spot and I left the car there during my stay.

The hotel was fine in terms of size of room, cleaniness, etc But the price quality ratio was very poor €148/night is very steep; it is an old and drab hotel, and though it is close to some siteseeing in Palermo, it is not worth the money. As a comparison, we also stayed in The Hotel Europa (I think that they are part of the same company, the lobby has the same horrid color scheme!) which was in a more residential area, for only 100€/night. Our last night in Palermo we stayed in Mondello, with a beautiful view of the sea, 4 star Hotel (Hotel La Torre) for 138€/night. Hence, the only reason Mediterraneo charges such a steep rate is that it is near Teartro Massimo, but knowing what I know now, I woudl not stay there again!
