A haven from the noise!
We stayed here for one night at the end of October. The hotel is in a good central location, yet on a side street. Via Roma and other main roads nearby are VERY noisy so a quieter street was welcome.
Very modern hotel, foyer with small bar, style is clean lines and minimalist furniture.The room was modern, spacious, had nice tiled bathroom, TV - everything you would expect from this class of hotel. Only negative point was that the room did smell of smoke despite it being a non-smoking room.
Staff were helpful and the breakfast was ample.
I got a reduced rate booking with Accor hotels on line - paid 80 Euros instead of the 200 Euros listed at reception.
Excellent hotel, wonderful welcome, top facilities, great bed and bath, good location, good concierge, breakfast very dissappointing - processed juice, poor chocolate, hard fruit, cheap jam and ordinary bread.
Italian hotels tend to be somewhat on the erratic side in my experience, particularly at this price range, but the Mercure was lovely. A new building, great breakfast (after a week of being served bread and marmalade in other parts of Sicily), big properly soundproofed rooms, large terrace attached to our room, nice bed linen, comfortable beds, spacious contemporary bathrooms (though my shower door leaked), helpful staff who could advise us on where to shop, eat, etc, temperature-controlled rooms, great location, internet access. I was particulary surprised at the price. I paid Euro 111 per night per room, and therefore expected it to be a little ropey. Not so.
Yep it looks drab from the outside but.... we stayed for 3 nights in this modern, excellent, centrally located hotel. just off one of the main streets in the centre of town, this hotel is a must for those people craving modernity with great service. Just round a couple of corners from late night street cafes and bars. If you want a fantastic hotel for a few nights go for it. Oh and the buffet breakfast is worth getting up for.
Clean and Quiet
We stayed two nights at Mercure Palermo Centro Hotel. The hotel looks unispiring from outside, but inside was an oasis of peace and relaxation. The hotel looked recently renovated, with the lobby and the rooms very clean and modern looking. The elevators and hallways were small and older than the rest of the hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious with a large bathroom. The breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of fresh fruits, cakes and different types of bread. Cappucinno and expresso were available free on request. The reception staff was young and very helpful despite their limited knowledge of english.
True 4* hotel - interior fantastic even if exterior is a little disappointing. Very modern and chic - large rooms as well as bathrooms and balconies. Great breakfast. Out of peak hours staff do not speak English but not a problem as such. Location very close to the main high street in Palermo.
We only stayed one night at this hotel during our one week holiday in Sicily but it was by far the best. Take advantage of Hotels offer of £55 per room per night, whereas if you booked directly or through some other sites, you could easily pay more than double this price for a standard double room.
Enjoy Palermo! Visit Santandrea restaurant as it is supposed to be simply the best in town and we have enjoyed our meal tremendously there - fresh Sicilian produce yet with an innovative twist. We also left our £400 camera there and thought that we will never see it again when we realised the next morning, but they picked it up and returned to us 4 days later when we were passing through Palermo once again. Amazing!
An absolute gem
My friend and I stayed here in a twin room. The hotel is a spotless, friendly oasis in Palermo and is well located. The breakfast was possibly the best I've had in Europe. Our room was quiet and we found the modern, designer decor very refreshing in such a loved, but dusty, city! It also has a secure, carpark underneath which was very helpful for us. Couldn't rate it highly enough.
Liked it very much
Liked this hotel very much. Very nice area (2 blocks from via roma) and were able to park our rental car across the street from the hotel.
Room was large and the bathroom very large (shower doors instead of a flimsy curtain). Breakfast served in a bright and airy room.
The staff are all young, good looking people and are very helpful with
giving directions, recommendations etc.
They have a happy hour which was packed (we did not attend, just passed through going to our room) each day.
Would recommend highly to anyone visiting the noisy but very much loved city of Palermo.
Booked the room thru Octopustravel Rate lower then rate given by Mercure Hotels directly.
We stayed in the Mercure Centro in April 2005, and were very impressed.
The hotel is very modern and completely new.It feels more Manhattan the Palermo. The room and the bathroom were very clean and tastefully decorated. The buffet breakfast was great and served in a nice bright room. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the heart of Palermo next to theatro Massimo and Via Roma. And off course very good deal, we paid only Eruro 80 per night breakfast included. I defenetly will go back.

Up, had an awesome shower in our ensuite, meet everyone at 6.45 in the lobby, unloaded the ferry Italian style (piano, piano or slowly, slowly), passengers are not allowed in the car/bus until it is on land only the driver, so drives off, parks on the edge of the road & loads the passengers up, we then went to tonights hotel …
... a few feet was an exercise in slide control. By now, having lost faith in the all-knowing Gods-of-Google, we decided I would search out our lodgings on foot (and maybe get some help from them) and Karen would stay with the car.
Without a paper map of town and armed only with the now discredited Google Maps (and a dying phone battery) I started off though the impossibly winding streets, passageways and blind alleys in search of ...
We didn't have a set time to start today, and had the morning to explore on our own, so we joined our new friends Sandra and Frank for a walk. We saw the 12th century church, Chiesa di S. Maria, which was originally planned as a mosque, so it contains stunning Byzantine mosaics. Next door there was a much smaller and very simply decorated church, ...
Our first stop was after winding up a large hill to view the 5th century Temple and Theatre. Next was another set of hairpin bends expertly negotiated by our bus driver, while we enjoyed spectacular views down towards the coastline. The picturesque medieval village of Erice was expertly built at the top. We wandered the cobblestone streets and in one of the piazzas a film crew ...
We left Trapani at 10 AM on Friday by bus retracing the route back to Palermo arriving about noon. After checking into the hotel and having lunch we attacked the city by Hop on Hop off bus! Palermo has done a pretty good job of mixing the old with the new. Much of the historical area remains intact while a new modern city has expanded outside. It's pretty chaotic in the narrow old streets, many now of which have been closed to traffic. ...
